My GGGrandfather, Larkin Johnston apparently lived on Leeper's Creek in the 1780's and early 90's. We know little of him, except we find him in Lincoln County's records as a witness to land transactions. He was removed from the tax roles in 1810 as reported by Captain Abernathy's Company, as was John and James Johnston and 7 others.

Family record has it that his place was involuntarily used by Lord Cornwallis during his move to Cowen's Ford during the revolutionary war. with this in mind, we believe his home must have been very near the Forney plantation.

Any information regarding Larkin Johnston would be appreciated.
