John and Philopena Sharp Loy, natives of Orange County, North Carolina, first appear in the land records of Campbell County, Tennessee, on October 19, 1811, at which time they purchased 400 acres on the north side of the Clinch River from Conrad Sharp. John Loy died between 1847 (last land record in which I have found him to be a living participant) and 1850 (no longer appears in census). Philopena Sharp Loy died 1850 or later, because she appears in the home of her son, Peter Loy, in the 1850 census.
