Re: Jane Carruthers md David Wilson, Sumner Co., TN 1804
Jane aka Jennie Carothers is daughter of Robert Carothers and wife Marg White.Jane aunt and uncle are Eleanor Carruthers and Robert Wilson. Robb Wilson is related to David.There are three Robert Carothers in the middle valley of TN. These three are 1st cousins. My Robert (Marg Scott) is the 1st in TN 1790 Williamson Co,he was followed by his elder cousin Robert (Marg White) who settled in Sumner Co. The third Robert (Pittilo) settled in Bedford Co. All of these Robert's lived in Mecklinburg Co NC prior to TN. My Robert resided on property once held by Hugh Carruthers (twin of John father to Robert) Hugh is father to Robert who married Marg White.
This is why the confusion - all that you have mensioned are 1st cousin'sJane that married Frank Finley is daughter of Robert 1715 Carruthers and Marg Gillespie . Rob 1715 is the eldest brother of John Carruthers Pa - his son Robert & Jim settled in Steel Creek Mecklinburg NC in 1774--Hugh Carruthers twin of John an father of Robert who married White, --- Eleanor Carruthers Wilson Rob Wilson's wife,---- William Carruthers of Augusta Va.
the son of the 5th brothers (James) settled in Cabarrus- he is Andrew.The Moffitt's have their facts wrong.
Members of all these families settled in Texas.
We Carothers do know whom are family members are , All the early Carruthers in Early America are related. But are easy to group once one get's past all the misleading writtings. The Robert's are confusing to most.
I hope this helps you, I can define this deeper aswell as the Wilson's and their relationship to Carruthers here and in Scotland.
