RE: Jane Laughlin McFerren
Yes, you are correct: her mother's last name was Dunkin, also spelled Duncan, as in the DAR Genealogical Files and different families spell the name differently. Jane's last name was actually McLaughlin: her father was recorded as James McLaughlin, DAR Ancestor Number A077867. That name, too, has been Anglicized in many records to Laughlin.

I have changed Mrs. McFerrin's DOD to 1813. I included the letter in the bio. It answered a question for me. I thought I had gone crazy with the Marshall County, Mississippi locale of his death. Then, when you mentioned the letter and I reread, I realized the documentation of his place of death, so I have reinstated that on his memorial.

Again, I greatly appreciate your help on this memorial. As I related before, my last name is Gilliand. William McFarland's Application for Pension is one of the resources that documents that my husband's ancestors knew my ancestors. In his Application, McFerrin wrote that " we took nine Tories who were out on parole of honor who were hung at Col Walkers8 in the preasants [presence] of their friends".

Colonel Walker was my 6XGGF. My husband had 4 direct ancestors and 6 granduncles who fought at BKM. Half that number spent 2 nights and 3 days at Col. Walker's before dispersing for their homes in Tennessee or South Carolina (the Battle of King's Mountain was fought in South Carolina and a contingent of the participants went to Col Walker's plantation in Tryon County, NC afterward to avoid the superior troops of Cornwallis who was in Charlotte, NC, less than 40 miles from King's Mountain.)

Again, I invite you to send me your lineage and I will be happy to include it in the bio.

RE: William McFerrin
Lisa -

Thank you for your help on William McFerrin. I have corrected the Date of Birth and County.

Do you have documentation that he died in 1845? The DAR records recorded "after 1845 in Marshall County, Mississippi", but [A letter in the file (p. 31) dated May 29, 1916 from Ms. Charles Oliver Norton of Kearney Nebraska states that the soldier William McFerren died in 1855.] so I have reflected that date.

Thank you, also, for your interest in maintaining this memorial. It's funny - several people have contacted me requesting a transfer of this memorial. I am gratified to know that people actually read the things that I write. This is part of a project. On October 7, 2015, we will celebrate the 235th anniversary of the Battle of King's Mountain, so the BKM memorials will be especially important. My last name is Gilliand: which line is yours?

Again, thank you for your help!
