I think you are talking about John T. Meggs, born in 1760 in Virginia; died in 1843/1847; buried in Carroll County GA? He was married to Polly Gordon. There was a John Meggs, a private in Benjamin A. Laier's County, N.C. Militia from Anson County, N.C. in the 2nd N.C. Regiment,War of 1812.This may be his son outfit the Rev. John Meggs, he was born 1790 in Anson Co. N.C. died in 1854 in Alabama. He was married Charity Lassiter in 1812 in N.C. There is an area in eastern Anson County Known as Gordon Mountain. I am looking for the same information, no luck so far.
