Hi! I was glad to see your information on Quinns on your on rootsweb.
Nancy Quinn (ID 1373) was my g-g-g-grandmother. She is buried in the Old Stone Presbyterian Chuch Cemetery in Catoosa County. I have visited the cemetery and have a photo somewhere of hers and Greenberry McCalla's stones.
Her father, Hugh Quinn, is buried in the Dogwood Valley Baptist Church cemetery. The stone was hand-carved and unfortunately is broken. The listing of the cemetery gives his wife's name as Martha J. Copeland. Wonder if she didn't use the name Martha. Bob Lamb whose wife is related to the same McCallas as I has Hugh's name as Hugh Gilmore Quinn.????
Bob also has Jane Copeland's fathers name as Alexander Copeland. His wife is descended from Greenberry and Nancy's daughter, Lola.
Thought you might be interested in these items. I'm sure about the burials; names are confusing!
Do you have any other information on this branch or can you elucidate your sources? Thanks, Lynda Smith,
If you seen the QUINN's on the SFA rootsweb site, you saw that: SFA 93 & 94

3rd Dau (1st Wife) Nancy QUINN, b. 1824; d. 1917, age 93yrs married Greenberry McCALLA, Issue Unknown (to me) Mrs. Jame (Copeland) QUINN, was the 3rd Daughter of William COPELAND, Jr. & Mary GREEN, of York Dist., SC.

Subj: Pinkney QUINN
Date: Thu, 15 Feb 2001 9:50:55 PM Eastern Standard Time
I saw your message on the South Carolina Census records. I am looking for information on Pinkney QUINN of Alabama and his family. It appears his father was Noah QUINN son of Hugh A. QUINN, [prs-FG 1101]
Pinkney was my gggrandfather.
My grandmother, who is 87, has fond memories of him but very little information other than he was called Dock QUINN. A house fire when my grandmother was young burned the family pictures and records. She has a picture of his wife, Clarissa (Vines) QUINN but nothing on Pinkney. I came acoss a web site on the worldconnect project "The jerry Guthrie Fammily Tree" that lists Pickney B. Dock QUINN as the second husband of Clarissa A. Carrington.
My grandmother has no knowledge of this. In the book "Heyday at Toadvine" it lists only two husbands for Clarissa Carrington, Hezekiah Vines, (brother of gggrandmother Clarissa (Vines) QUINN) and J.W. Sexton.
I would greatly appreciate any information you can provide or suggestions on where I can search would be helpful.
You seem to be very knowledgeable of the QUINN family. I have seen your name a number of places regarding the QUINNs.
My grandmother and I would like to get this information together and give it to our family as a gift this summer on her 88th birthday. Thanks for your time.
Debbie Vines,
I have not researched the QUINN's out-side of the York/Spartanburg Dist. of SC., but I don't believe your Pinkney QUINN was a son of Noah QUINN son of Hugh A. QUINN.

Date: Sat, 10 Nov 2001 8:47:40 AM Eastern Standard Time
I am and have been quite impressed with all the information that you have on the internet. My compliments to you. Also an abundance of gratitude. I have been researching my family history since 1968.
I have found your information helpful to me with all of the above families. Your information has paralleled and added to my data. I descend from Jane Fondren, daughter of John and Kezia Roberts (daughter of Morris Roberts III) Fondren, who married Osborn Love.
In checking on Hugh Lee Quinn III, I found that you show his first wife as Jane Copeland, b. abt 1792, d. about 1855 at age 67. You also show that he married Martha Scott in 1844. I know that there were a group of people who were beginning to practice polygamy about this time in Illinois, but I was not aware of a group in Georgia.
I am not on a fishing expedition but am a little confused and hope you can help.
Thanks, Lynell Bennett Moss,
Apparently Hugh Lee QUINN & 1st Wife Jane COPELAND were divorced before 2nd marriage in 1844. ...prs

Dear Mr. Sarratt,
Thank you for all your work researching your family history and sharing it on-line. I've found some good information on my family from your website and your family file on rootsweb.
I would like to expand my file to include some lateral lines, so I had downloaded a GEDCOM from rootsweb for the Quinn line; and then I discovered that you also had Looney information. (I can only download six generations of decendants.) I was wondering if you would be so kind as to send me a GEDCOM of all your Quinn, Looney, and Cooper data.
Thank you. Lee King,
gggggggg-gson of John Looney and Elizabeth Llewellen
gggggg-gson of Hugh Quinn and Margaret Fondren
gggg-gson of Zachariah Cooper and Mary Ann Quinn
ggg-gson of John Cooper and Sophia Martha Looney
P.S. Do you know anything about the Littons (James Litton b. 1736) from Prince George County, Maryland? I have another line that descends from them, and I think they may have some tie to the Sarratts from there. James Litton's grandson, Lawson Litton, supposedly died on John Dill's farm in St. Clair County, Alabama; and I think John Dill also had ties to the Sarratts and Quinns.
Sorry, Lee my GEDCOM file is in mega bytes size, don't have time to send in E-Mail.
You will need to download (8 Gen) per time from
Sorry, I have not researched the LITTON family.
John DILL family is "connected" to FONDREN family, not SARRATT/QUINN ...prs

Mr. Sarrett,
I pulled up the 1850 SC census index and saw your note that you would like to share information with anyone during research on the Quinn family. I have started doing research for my boss and his mother on their family--Quinn. They knew the ancestor L. C. (Lawson Calvin) Quinn, and I have found his parents, James Quinn and Ity Tolleson Quinn. I have a feeling that if this is the family line you are doing you already have all the information I have, but if I can share anything, my boss said he was willing to share what they have. We do know L. C. was in Civil War, killed in St. Petersburg, FL in 1863, and he married Sarah Hampton from GA.
I am also the genealogist for our local historical society, so if I can be of any help, please let me know.
Glynda Thompson,
Thanks for the E-Mail, but you didn't mention any dates or what County, State your boss's QUINN family is from.

Subj:Re: Mary Quinn and David Draper -- who was this Mary Quinn?
Date: 30 Aug 2003 6:54:18 PM Pacific Daylight Time
In a message dated 4/6/2003 9:30:44 PM Central Daylight Time, CindyDMangiafico writes:
"I have another Mary Quinn on my database. Her parents are listed as Peter Quinn and Judith Robinson, and another with parents listed as David Quinn and Mary Morgan. Could one of these two others be married to David Draper?"
Just cleaning up some old emails and I came across your 5-month old query regarding parents of Mary Quinn who married David Draper in AL in early 1900s. Sorry that I had not replied earlier.
Daniel (not David) Quinn and Mary Morgan are good candidates as parents for the Mary Quinn (b.abt 1799) who married David Draper in AL in Jan 1824. Both were alive and of child-bearing age at the time she was born. This Mary was born is NC as was Daniel Quinn. The only discrepancy is that Paul Sarratt has determined that the family (Daniel/Mary) were in York Co for each of the 1790, 1790, 1800, 1810, 1820, & 1830 census takings, making it unlikely that they lived in NC in 1799 -- but census records as to birthplaces are certainly not infallible.
I believe that the name "David" is in error as stated in the parents names for your second Mary Quinn (in your email above). Mary Morgan was married to a Daniel Quinn (not to a David Quinn).
Paul Sarratt carries the name as "Daniel" Quinn in his exhaustive datebase and provides a summary of his associated research (as well as where erroneous name came from), as follows:
Source: FGS 0089.001, by Paul R. Sarrett, Jr. (
Possible Record Problem!
In "Some Heroes of the American Revolution" by the Rev. L.D. Bailey, Ed. 1924; Band & White, Printers; Spartanburg SC., pg 110-111
The plantation of John B. Mintz & the final resting place (Grave site) of Colonel James WILLIAM, lies between Buffalo and Broad Rivers, and was pointed out to him by Mrs. David <-- s/b "Daniel" QUINN, the daughter of Anthony MORGAN, who resided within 40 rods of the grave when Colonel WILLIAMS was buried. The statement of Mrs. QUINN was confirmed by Peter MORGAN, her brother.
[Other records indicate that daughters Mary MORGAN m. Daniel QUINN and Betsy MORGAN m. John QUINN their were no "David QUINN" in the area at this time...prs]

Daniel Quinn, Sr. [SFA 89]
Date: 06 Sep 2003 1:42:35 AM Pacific Daylight Time
My name is Karen Hamilton and my ex was Tom Huffstetler.
I am descended thru the Quinns (Quins) and came across your site. I do have a bit of info for you that is a correction.
On this page you state that Daniel Quinn Sr is buried in a private cemetery near Ellis Ferry in Cleveland Co., NC.
Oddly enough, in researching my ex-husbands family from SC
I found that they still live in the same area that the Quinns were from and in fact, the land that Daniel is buried on is owned by my ex's cousin. He still tend's the graves!!! So you are correct,
he is buried in a private grave, but the grave is on property owned by Marshall Cooper on the Black River, near Gaffney, Cherokee, South Carolina.
I thought this was so unusual to find that we had family that married each other over 200 years ago.........
Karen Hamilton
What a pleasant suprise, to get your E-Mail re: Grave site of Daniel Quinn, Sr.
Any chance we could get your ex's cousin to take photos of the grave site and headstones?
We could add them to our "Gravestone Project" ...prs
