Research note*2 Nov 2014 Here's documented information about Thomas Gardner (son of Thomas Gardner of Halifax Co., N. C., and brother of Pryor Gardner):

Thomas Gardner settled in Warren Co., N. C., after leaving Halifax. He was a Baptist minister who served at Gardner's Meeting House, also known as Brown's Meeting House and Tanner's Meeting House.

History of Brown's Baptist Church, May 11, 1982 is "a typewritten document at the North Carolina Archives in the 'Warren County History' folder on the Mezzanine." "Historical data show that Tanner's Meeting House (now Warren Plains), Gardner's Meeting House and Brown's Meeting House grew out of Reedy Creek Church long before 1800. . . . It cannot be proven but it is very probable that John Tanner was the first preacher here at Brown's. Dates are unknown as to when he started or left. He was succeeded by Thomas Gardner, who served until 1825 or 1826. Both men served prior to the church's official date or organization in 1830. Willoughby Hudgins followed Brother Gardner and was the pastor when the church did organize in 1830. No records, unfortunately, were kept prior to 1830." This information comes from http://files.usgarchives.net/nc/warren/history/other/history02.ms.txt

Here is more about Rev. Thomas Gardner:

Warren County, N. C., Will Book Ten, p. 106 cites the following: "Will of William Wilson, 1 Oct. 1788; May Ct. 1799. Leg: Wife (not named); sons Daniel, William & Montford (& eldest son of Montford Wilson); Dtr. Judah Ragsdel (Ragsdal) to have land adj. James Myrick & widow Ray; William Vasser; children of John Wilson; Richard Wilson; Sarah Buford; Elizabeth Toleson (relationship of last five not stated). Exrs: William Varsser [sic] & Thomas Gardner. Wit: Betty Gardner and Thomas Gardner."

Warren County, N. C., Will Book Ten, p. 314: "Will of Billy Williams. 7 Feb. 1800; May Ct. 1800. Bequests to friend Thomas Gardner (for funeral sermon of his wife, and his own); Benjamin Capps, son of Raney Capps; nephew Willie Harris; niece Polly Merritt, dtr. of Sylvanus Merritt; Selah Harris, wife of Willie Harris; for educations of friendless orphan children. Exr.: Brittain Nicholson. Wit.: Willie (Wiley) Harris (Jurat) & Selah Harris (Jurat)."

More Gardner lore:

Note that the Gardner brothers Thomas and Pryor settled in counties named Warren, Thomas in N. C., Pryor in Ga.

Pryor Gardner's son William sold land to his sister Sarah's husband Thomas Harris. Deed Book B, Warren Co., Ga., p. 613 records the transaction. Deed dated Oct. 11, 1804, for 16 1/2 acres adj. grantee. Wit.: Pryor Gardner and Fannie Gardner.

Thereafter William headed west. He migrated to Mississippi Territory, settling in Amite County. His name appears in the Miss. Territorial Census, 5 Nov. 1810, line 27, Roll v 229-1. William's gravestone is pictured on the web site Find A Grave. It states that he was born in Roanoke Rapids, N. C., Halifax County, on Feb. 15, 1781, and that he died in Amite County on October 11, 1840. Only 59.

Did you know that William had only one ear?

Deed Book B, Warren Co., Ga., p. 180, states: "John Law, in a statement entered of record, acknowledges he bit off the ear of William Gardner on Dec. 19, 1800, in a fight between them 'which fact I acknowledge so that it may become a matter of record.' Wit.: J. Persons."
