My Loftin Quinn was born abt. 1712... not sure of where, but it is believed that is father was George Quinn. He migrated into North Carolina probably from Isle of Wight County, Virginia. He married Mary Canady and they had ten children.
Of those ten children only three were mentioned in his 1766 will, Thomas, William, and Margrett. Abner, Loftin, David, Enoch, Caleb, George, and James were not listed. I believe that this will was written as a precaution against the ensuing
American Revolution War. Only children of adult age were ever
mentioned to receive an inheritance gift. That means that the remaining children were born during and after the war.
My ancestor was James Quinn. I have copies of his will,an
inventory of his estate and a copy of the court's order that the older children of James and Mary Rigsby Quinn, Nancy and William be placed into guardianship of their uncle, Thomas Quinn. Their ages were given as Nancy being 13 y/o
and William being 10 y/o. The court order was done in 1802
so that would place Nancy being born in 1789 and William being born in 1792. My ggggrandfather was William Graham Quinn born May 4th, 1792 in Duplin County, North Carolina.
All of my information blends and I do believe that I have the correct links.
If you want more information, give me a call at my home @
area code 601-222-0199 or you can e-mail me at or would like to hear from you one way or the other. I believe you know a David Foster Quinn...he and I are exchanging information also.
Good Hunting!!! Good Luck!!!

Sincerely Yours,

Betty Quinn Landrum
