Edward William and Mickie Quinn Porr of NorthCarolina Updated December 12, 2001
About Our Family Research
Ed & I began our family seraches in the end of November of 2001. 2 weeks into seraching Mickie got an email from a 4th cousin she had never met or even heard of. Right now Mickie & Ed are working on Ed's side of the family and Mickie's mother side of the family. But as far as her Dad';s side of the family, well the serach is over. Her cousin sent her records & her Lineage going all the way back to her great great great great great great great Grandfather. His name was THOMAS QUINN, born in 1733 in Ireland. He was in the French & Indian War. When he came to the US (The First Quinn on Mickie's side to come to the US) he met and married MARY BLACKBURN. They had four sons... and from there, many families were made possible! There are so far 10 generations of QUINN's found. Which is totally awesome, because Mickie had only thought she would be lucky to get even 5 generations. Well over night, it was doubled, all because she left a post looking for one man's name, her Great Grandfather Jonas Leroy Quinn. Noone knew his name, so she left a post, and overnight got some amazing stories to tell her children and pass down one day to her own grandchildren!
