I don't know anything about John Lamkin but am interested in Prosper Lamkin. I have an old note written by a Prosper Lamkin. It is mostly just names and a date or two. My Mary Lamkin married John Trout in OH 1821. I sort of think Lamkin was a previous married name. Wonder where Prosper fits in. There was a Prosper Lamkin in the War of 1812. Do you know who your Prosper parents were?
