Vol. 3 pg. 256:James McMakin Sr. died before 11 Sept. 1826 when Michael McMakin appointed Administrator.Carroll Co. TN Court Minutes2/3.
James had a son, James Alexander McMackin who was also an early resident of Carroll Co. it appears.James Alexander was still having children in 1830 - so it does not seem it would have been him who died in 1826.
A James McMackin Sr. died in Carroll Co. TN in 1826. . . . . could be the James who married Barbara Myers.Carroll Co. Clerk said they did not have an 1826 Will or estate for James McMackins/McMakin in their early records. . . .Many times it appears the Mc has been dropped in the printed records, as the interpreter did not know what the Mc was.
