    • There are two Thomas Hemphills in Burke County in 1800; neither census record matches perfectly, but this one seems most probable. Thomas (54) is the only male in the household over the age 45.

There are also two undidentified males, one aged 10 to 15 (possibly James, 20) and one aged 16 to 25 (possibly Samuel, 25). There are 12 slaves.

    Notes 
    • Name:
      Polly Hemphill -> Captain Thomas Hemphill's will. [She and her brother Thomas were parties in support of the will in the court case; that's why I consider this an original source for her name - I'm really referring to the court case.]

      Connection to parents:
      She is named as Captain Thomas Hemphill's daughter in his will.

      Other notes:
      She never married -> stated in Hemphills in North Carolina and also implied by Captain Thomas Hemphill's will (he bequeathed land to her and married women could not own property in NC at the time his will was written).
