Patrick O’Quin was born either January or June 5, 1750 in Ireland. Some records differ on his month of birth. He arrived in the colonies as an indentured servent.

He was indentured to one Michael Simpson on April 22, 1772, in the Mayors court in Philadelphia Patrick served in the Revolutionary War in the Virginia First Artillary for the entire length of the war. It is believed that he served in the stead of his indenturer, Michael Simpson, which was a common practice at the time, and by doing so had his term of indenture terminated. His Army duty was listed as matross, A matross is a soldier who assists artillery gunners in loading, firing, sponging and moving the guns. He was awarded 200 acres of land after the war, on July 28, 1783, and was listed in the 1790 Census of Sampson County, North Carolina as Patrick O’Quin.
Patricks wife’s name was Elizabeth (Hurley?) Elizabeth was also an indentured servent who was indentured to Elizabeth Sawyer, also in the Mayors Court at Philadelphia, also on April 22, 1772.

However, as indentured servants were rarely allowed to marry, and given the exact same date of indenture, Patrick and Elizabeth were possibly married before leaving Ireland.
Patrick died in 1806. After Patrick’s death, Elizabeth married Hardy Holmes on August 24, 1808. Elizabeth died in Wayne County, North Carolina. "
