In the research I have been doing, I have found that Enoch Quinn of Williamson,Tennessee migrated there from Duplin County, North Carolina and he is the brother of my direct ancestor, James Quinn. There were seven boys and one daughter, Margrett, born to Loftin Quinn and Mary Canaday.
The names of the brothers were as follows:
1. Abner Quinn
2. Thomas Quinn
3. William L. Quinn
4. Caleb Quinn
5. Enoch Quinn
6. George Quinn
7. James Quinn b.c.1761 d.1802
James Quinn was married to Mary Rigby and after his death in 1802, she remarried to Richard Bray. She and James had
1. Nancy Quinn b. 1789
2. William Graham Quinn b.4-May-1792 d. 6-February-1850
3. Dolly Quinn
4. Mary ( Polly ) Quinn
5. Katherine ( Kitty ) Quinn
6. David Quinn b.1796
7. Cassandra (Cassie)
William Graham Quinn was my great-great-great-grandfather. He was married to Sarah (Sally) Bryan Holmes of Washington County, Georgia.They were migrating to the Mississippi area from Milledgeville,Georgia when he became ill in Tallapoosa County, Alabama, where he died of a fever
in an epidemic. Their son, William Bryan Quinn is my great-
great grandfather. He was married to Caroline Watkins of the PeeDee River Basin of North Carolina.They had nine children. Their son, James Henry Quinn, was my great grandfather. He was married to Ida Emmaline Teer of Winston County, Mississippi. He had 15 children. His son David Monroe Quinn was my grandfather. He married Ophelia Reed, of Noxubee County, Mississippi and they were the parents of eight children. My father is Lawson Billy Quinn,(L.B.) and he is married to Frances Rebecca Hamm, of Winston County, Mississippi. They have three children of whom I am the middle child.
I have a copy of the Wills of both Loftin and James and Enoch's name is mentioned there along with his siblings. I, also, have a copy of the will of Mary Canaday Quinn.
