There is a 1753 record of a Granville grant given to a Francis Mabry in Granville County, NC. This Francis Mabry is known to be the son of a Francis Mabry that Matthew Matthew's father James had known at least as early as 1702 when their names appeared together on the militia roll for Charles City County. The two families lived beside each other for at least 25 years in Brunswick County. Matthews Genealogy Website
