We may have spoke, and this may be hass out of old info.I notedyou and my cousin Warren Carothers (dec 2000/01) , We know whom Tyra is . You also wanted in on John & Content (Bangs?) Carruthers of Cravern Co,NC. John is family to us both (Warren and I) , John b. 1708 according to all records we have, d. 1752 Cravern Co,NC. Son John married Patty Carraway, daughter Frances married Francis Hodge, and in turn their son John Westley Hodge married Jane Carruthers/Carothers dau of Robert & Margaret Scott Carruthers/Carothers as we changed it in 1750 .It is well known John & Content did hold up in Lancaster/Cumberland Co,Pa, where son John was born , this was very close to John & Sarah Neely/Irwin Carruthers , parents of Robert . I have our line back thru Holmains to Musfald(Mousewald) , I would like to see where you have John placed in the of Holmains . Of the Early Pa Carruthers , both main groups decend from John the 5th Lord of Holmains, Warren and I go thru son George & Margaret Irvine Carruthers 6th Lord of Holmains , thru son William . It is no suprize John 1708 is family, we would like to get him at least close in the tree, he is in some related to James & Lydia Roberts Carruthers, which agian stays close to our line with mariages, it is a fact ALL Carruthers no matter how it is spelled are blood , in other words Carruthers is a sole family name. The Holmains family are the Border Reivers of Scotland, we were called apon by most all the Lowland Clans for support, you will also note in our Scottish history all the Carruthers/Carruthers marriages they are cousin marriage to shore up failing land holds.
If you have John 1708 father as Nathanial Carruthers of Paraquinn Co, NC. the fact is incorrect. One marker is that Nate is Quaker, John Presbyterian, which is the family religion. Tommy
