Any Help finding out more info on Robert McGinnis his wife Martha Jordan would be really appreciated. The following is the only information on an online reference to Robert
Robert Mcginnis born abt 1795 in NC, Found Murdered 1838 Married Martha Jordan abt 1816
Children William C McGinnis B abt 1823 R.H. McGinnis B abt 1826 Simon McGinnis B 1816 Married Mary Ann Gourley Mary Ann McGinnis Vannoy b 1828
We are related thru Simon McGinnis. I have been unable to verify Robert McGinnis info. Unable to fine Marriage or birth notices or parents. How was he murdered?? There are several Robert McGinnis's in East Tennessee but none with his birth date or married to Martha Jordan.
The only info I have been able to find is an 1850 meigs cty Tenn Census with Martha McGinnis age54 living with William McGinnis age 27. It appears that Williams sister Mary Ann Vannoy is listed with her husband on the next line of the census.
We are having a family gathering soon so any help would thrill everyone there!!!!!!
