I am seeking information on John Dergan/Durgin/Durgan (bef 1775-) who settled in White County Tennessee ca 1806. He was Registrar of that County from 1807-1815. It is believed that he married Sarah 'Sally' Terry, daughter of John Terry and Elizabeth "Betty" Bounds.
The name was spelled a variety of ways in different records, most predominantly those versions mentioned above.
Here is a time line of John Dergan/Durgin/Durgan as gleaned from various records

Any information at all on this family would be greatly appreciated.
