Just read your information indicating a James Larkins from NC was court martialed. Which James would that be as there were at least four James Larkins from NC that served in the American Rev. war? Or are you referring to a man named Martin? What is the source of this information as I would like to see which James Larkins from NC was court martialed. I doubt it was the ones from Washington County, NC from which that NC county became part of the state of Franklin and subsequentially Tenn. I doubt the James Larkins from Washington County, NC which became Washington County, Tenn. were court martialed as most men who got land there got it because of military service in Scott's company. Don't think if you were court martialed out of service you would get the land grant rights but I will check that. However, we have yet to find the war records of these two James Larkins. There was at least two other James Larkins in NC. beside the ones we refer to as James Larkins Sr. and James Larkins Jr. Sr. and Jr. James Larkins are in Washington county, Tenn. in 1790, 1793, 1794 and 1795 with James Larkins Sr. dying in 1795 in Tenn. I have seen the list of 1793 list of Taxables with these two James Larkins, the will of Margaret English Larkens with reference to James Jr., the article from Tennesseans before 1795 and a couple of other references via old census records from NC. However, would love to know the source of this information you have said where a James Larkins from NC was court martialed. Thanks
