Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 433, Round Grove Township, White County, Indiana

"JOHN LARKINS, son of DANIEL and MARGARET (QUINN) LARKINS, was born in County Limerick, Ireland, about 1833, and is the seventh in a family of eight children. The father, who was a farmer, died in Ireland in 1865, a member of the Catholic Church. JOHN LARKINS emigrated to Canada in 1851, and was employed on a farm a year. In 1852, he moved to Dunkirk, New York, and for a few months worked on a railroad, and then moved to Tippecanoe County, Indiana, and worked there as a farm hand four years and on shares one year; he next farmed in Warren and Benton Counties on his own and on rented land for for about six years. In March, 1865, he sold his land in Warren County, and enlisted in Company K, One Hundred and Fifthieth Indiana Volunteer Infantry, and was mustered out at Stephenson, Virginia, in September. He then farmed on shares in Benton County until 1871, when he came to this township and bought 160 acres wild land, on which he now resides, and which is well improved. February 10, 1855, he married CATHERINE SCANLON, a native of Boston, Massachusetts, and daughter of MORRIS and NANCY (CONNER) SCANLON, natives of County Kerry, Ireland. To this marriage have been born ten children, of whom eight - four boys and four girls - are still living. MR. and MRS. LARKINS and their entire family are members of the Catholic Church."
