John R. Hancock b 1796; VA>Christian KY>Saline MO

Looking for info on the parents of John R. Hancock born ca 1796 in Kentucky or Virginia. He married Virginia Finley, daughter of Dabney Finley & Mary Elizabeth Lewis 11 Apr 1829 Christian Co., KY. John Hancock probably died between 1860-1870. John & Virginia settled in Saline Co., MO. They had the following children: Mandeville B., Mary Priscilla, Rumina Margaret, Elizabeth Agnes, Rhoda Ann, Sarah N., Virginia W., Nancy T., Mahala J., Eliza H., Alvira F., and John R.

I believe that John R Hancock may have been the son of Benjamin Hancock & Priscilla Franklin of Muhlenberg Co., KY. Benjamin & Priscilla had a son named John born before 1801 who moved to Missouri. Benjamin Hancock, son of Thomas Hancock & Mary Shoemaker, was born 25 Oct 1758 Virginia and died 5 Oct 1827. Priscilla Franklin was born 10 Jan 1760 Albemarle Co., VA and died 20 Sep 1834. They were married 7 Apr 1790 Abemarle Co., VA.

Any help with this family would be appreciated.
