Re: Jane Carruthers md David Wilson, Sumner Co., TN
I see some of the histories you have has brought on confussion of cousins caused by Marget Pilcher's history.
Jane aka Jennie Carothers is the daughter of Robert Carothers and Margaret White.
Robert's Aunt is Eleanor Carruthers Wilson wife of Robert Wilson, and these Wilson's are of the same family to David.
Jane Carothers that married Frank Finley is the daughter of James Carruthers, 1st cousin to Robert above, and my Robert of Williamson Co.,TN.
I know it's confussing as the two girls Jane and Jane were born the same year 1777, Robert's Jane was born in Mecklinburg Co,NC, and James's daughter Jane was born in Rowan Co.,NC.
The Moffit's can claim what they wish, which is way off base. We Carruthers know who our family is, and all the members from Pa, Va to NC and into the middle valley TN, which decend from a set of five brothers, and Wilson line decends from a set seven brothers. Clan Moffitt also fail to tell you Carruthers are members of the Royal family, and that the family you are researching are the Holmains Carruthers.
I hope this helps you.
