John R(obert) Medlin - Abt. 1869 NC
I am looking for any information on John R Medlin. I'm thinking his middle name may be Robert. He would have been born around 1869 in North Carolina.
My great-great grandmother was Josephine Medlin b. 11 Aug 1869 d. 24 Aug 1935 The story goes that she was a man's mistress and his last name was also Medlin, like hers. I found her Death Certificate. It lists a Kit Medlin as her father and a John R Medlin as her husband. She was listed as a widow so I assume he died prier to 1935, but this may be incorrect. Anyway, the story is that Josephine and John? children were illegetimate and that they NEVER spoke of who their father was, only the rumor that he had another family.
I am descended from John R and Josephine Medlin's eldest son Jasper Robert Medlin b. 1893 m. Kathleen Woodard. Josephine Medlin is buried in the Woodard Family Cemetary in Nash County, NC. Their other children are: Adna, Siddie, Novie, Mortos Joseph, Burbon and Myrtle.
In searching around for a John R(obert) Medlin born Jul 1869 I came across John Robert Medlin m. Annie Rebecca Horton. Parents were John Robert Medlin 1825-1880 and Sara Gregory 1833-1895.
I basically want to know if I may have found my John R Medlin and perhaps Annie Rebecca was his wife. ANY information is appreciated.
