Descendents of John Medlin II son of John Medlin and Ferby Whitley. John was a very wealthy man the 1859 tax

list shows him 1206 acres of land and by 1860 he owned 10,000 acres. He operated a grain mill on Richardson

Creek. He was a member of the High Hill Church.  In 1847 he was involved in the death of a slave he was

charged with manslaughter along with Clem Curlee. Pleading an old English clergy law he was fined $3000. 

Union County used the money to build a County Jail in Monroe. The Jail has since been named in the National

Register of Historic Places. He left NC after the Civil War and went to Carbondale Illinois (one story states with

a chest of gold) where he died in 1870.
