Remember also that a Nancy McAdoo, daughter of
James McAdoo, (17--1802), near Alamance Church, Guilford Co, NC. in 1759, listed as an planter, married Capt John Reen or Ream...as seen in the chart work of "Victor Clay McAdoo"...(most likely the Comp. of American Gene. book series/SKL)
John Mcadoo, lineage m. Sarah Larkins dau. of John Larkins,
later of Texas, John McAdoo/Macadow filed for his military
pension out of Mason Co. KyOct. court 1836, with witnesses
of William Turner and Benjamin Bean. See Pension claim
No. 6581, Maryland, John McAdow.
THE WYOMING AND LACKAWANNA VALLEYS, PA. PAGE 81.....
Madison T. Larkin, controller of the International Textbook
Company, for it's world reknown International Correspondence Schools, recites some of his family history. ...Came from Suffolk co., England, beign at Lark
River to whcih the family coat of arms dates back to 1198,
Hugh Larkin, born 1745, whose wife was Sarah, born 1751
went to Botetourt Co., Va...in 1793 where their son named Moses was born. Joseph Franklin Larkin and father of Madison T. Larkin was one of the most prominent men of
Cincinnati, Ohio...so on it goes. Now I have another one
such Hugh Larkin married to an Sarah, the wife of Rev.
Christopher Sargent..out of New Jersey also. I don't know if this is another one or perhaps and earlier marriage?..
Vol.5, Comp. of American Gene., page 381, under Jane Elizabeth Clark McKamey of Dickson Co., Tenn. ....Geo. Clark, died 1847..m. Margaret Cox in 1777...Benj. F.. Clark
m. 1805 Sarah Larkins (John, m ---McAdoo)
In this gene. book on the McKamey family they were from
Chester Co, Pa and went to Augusta Co., Va pretty much as
history tells it. The group above were in Tenneesee records
when I researched some of the lines in an brief one day stop over across the countryside...in Murfreesborough.
I was basically trying to find out whom the John Larkins in an frontier rangers group was with the Clark family in
military records I picked up. They were mostly in the western Pa. area. I have records of the Dickson Co., Tenn
family of John Larkins having an son named "James" Larkins
that I've been trying to locate. Thsi later line did indeed
get into the Lawson fued later on by way of Lawson, MO.
that I think was part of an fraud by the railroad, and
it included an "Raum" family may be in conenction with the
Larkins/Reed in-law. I'm not quite sure what did happen in
this other then the town this railroad was going to be named after eventually fell through, bu tI suspect that it
also had soemthign to do with the Kentucky Fued though John Brown, Harper's Ferry has taken precedence over the history of it all. I have an second suggestion that recently that
it might of involved something with the killing of Abe.
Lincoln also..besides just the Slavery issue. But do
reemeber that the Wilkinson family are in land deeds with
Edward Chenoweth in Blount Co., Tenn 1795. I understand like many of these records, the Lawson family has control
over them or did in the past...because they operated the
Historical societies in the area, if not the newspapers/
biographical information of others.
I came across this also, Col. James Wood (from whom James Wood Lackey in Tenn. was named after and whom is said direct kin to William Lawson "the Scottish Rebel" lineage, of Va, of the American REv....m. Keziah m. James Dickson,
Maragret m. 1833 John Simpson, of Huntsville, Alabama (Dr. William, surgeon war of 1812)...and the second line of the person filing was that of John Turner(1749-96), ens. 11 Va. Regt..married 1762, Prisilla Blount. No information given on her. Could this been though of the information of the John Turner...that signed the McAdow pension papers of
Mason Co., Ky? This lineage is has Goochland, Henrio Co's,
and Eppes family lines as is seen in the material about
the where abouts of the "Scottish Rebel" of William Lawson material. I will tell you later on how the Purcells are involved.
..... James Lukins was most likely the one killed
with Col. Butler in Tenn...as Lt. Lukins. These people
are traveling with "Indians" as agents of the Government signing treaties and handling out "offerings".
John Lukens is mentioned in the History of Augusta County, by John Peyton. He is an surveryor of the state boundry lines between Virginia and Pennsylvania...later refereed to the Mason/Dixon line in the civil war era. His name is signed therof on the documents. Then I have in teh same book as the gene. of General Andrew Lewis, which includes the Trigg family whom went to Ky, though in here is says issue unknown as to the family....Elizabeth Lewis, m. first Mr. Luke of Alexandria, Va. second, Mr. Ball of Ky., and
third, Mr. Marshall of Ky...issue unknown. Maybe some of the Marshall from whence Marshall Co., Ill. was named??? Listed as admitted to the bar in 1771, as an attorney of law is one James Lukins, p. 368, History of Lancaster Co., Pa by I. Daniel Rupp. Heritage Books...I would think that one of these two if not Lt. Lukens, is their parent perhaps...and maybe our James?
I conclude this with the fact that of Lancaster County,Pa. comes the oldest records of the Ream family..whom took his land patents from in 1725 from Thomas Penn....that being Everhard b. 1632, the third generation down of this group
helped to build Ft. Lee on the Hudson River and was at Valley Forge during the campaings of 1776-77 in N.J. But they were part of thisGerman element coming from Lancaster Co.,Pa to travel with the Scotch-Irish into Agusta Co. Va and southward to NC..... and most likely that included the Krider family kinship. Enough for now. this would be an older generation perahps then our "James". I see some of them in Va. are going by the name of "Likens"...around the James River. About the only mention of them in Kegley's is that they were early residents of Bent Mountain, Capt Martin's Company...but no date is given on this information either.
