Thayer's Note:

a On Lt. Wragg's tombstone — from which also the birth data I give above — we read that he died in Haywood County, NC. The discrepancy in Cullum's Register is probably accounted for by the fact that parts of Haywood County and a large area immediately to the west of it, now in Tennessee, were once claimed for the State of Franklin. (The town of Franklin, TN has nothing to do with it, on the other hand; it's far to the west, in the center of today's State.)
