Abner Wilson Quinn
Birth: Apr. 6, 1793
Culpeper County
Virginia, USA
Death: Jun. 18, 1876
Estill County
Kentucky, USA

Abner was my 3rd Great-Grandfather.

He was the youngest of six children born to John QUINN (1760) and Frances WATTS (1755-1824). (Currently there is a question as to Abner's parents as John Quinn may not be his father as he may have died in 1788).

He was married to Nancy Phoebe WHITE on July 22nd, 1819, at her father's house, Captain James White, in Estill Co., KY. The White's were neighbors of the Quinn's.

Together they had ten children:

William K. QUINN
Frances QUINN Richardson
Mariam Hannah QUINN Wilson
Nancy Ann QUINN Morton
Arie Crews QUINN Lynch
Andrew Jackson Quinn
Green White QUINN
Richard M. QUINN
James S. QUINN
Sidney "Kay" Kearley QUINN

Abner was in the War of 1812, captured in "Dudley's Defeat" and made to run the gauntlet, and was without food for eight days. The first food after that was horse meat. He was the first County Judge of Estill Co., KY, and he served for two terms. He was also the Sherrif of Estill Co., KY in 1828. On October 6, 1873 Estill Co., KY District of License issued Abner a license to own a Tavern.
