Genealogy of Sheridan Mink John Mink was born about 1787 in VA and died in May 1860 in Lee Co., VA, about age 73. General Notes: H.B. Linville to John Mink, 17 Feb 18 “Know all men by these presents that I, H.B. Linville, have this day bargained as sold unto John Mink a certain tract of land containing 150 acres, lying and being in Rockcastle County on Skaggs Creek and bounded as follows: “Beginning at two elms on the bank of the creek…to a chestnut oak and hickory, H. Taylors line, thence with his line N 80 E 125 poles to two [?], his corner by a spring. Thence another of Taylors lines N 10 w 35 poles to stake, thence to the beginning.” There was another tract which joined the one above and was “the same place where Soloman Collins formerly resided and deeded to John Graves…” It also joined Nathan McClure, Holbert McClure and A.J. James (or maybe Jones). This land sale may represent John Mink’s arrival in Rockcastle County. Deed Book 24, p.513 (the deed was obviously brought back in to be re-recorded well after 1873).

They are David McFERRON, who listed his destination as America; John McFERRON, who also listed his destination as America; and Joseph McFERRON, who listed his destination as Pennsylvania. Our ancestor, Joseph McFERRON, was perhaps the same Joseph McFERRON, since he was born in Ireland in 1780 and came to this country in his youth. One report has him in the territory that was the Louisiana Purchase before 1803; others indicate he came to America in 1805 or 1806. A family with strongly suggestive ties (although the date of coming to America predates that by sixty five years and calling their surname "McFERRIN" rather than McFERRON), is described in a biography of Dr. John B. McFERRIN, a Methodist Minister, in Prominent Tennesseans. That book reports that Dr. McFERRIN's great grandfather William McFERRIN, Sr., was one of three brothers who came from Ireland about 1730 and resided for some time in York County, Pennsylvania. The grandfather, also named William, was a patriot soldier in the Revolution. The father of Dr. John B. McFERRIN was James McFERRIN who married Jane Campbell BERRY, both born in Washington County, Virginia, and settled in Rutherford County, Tennessee in 1804, one year after the county was organized. This McFERRIN family were originally Presbyterians, but became a family of Methodist preachers.
