Rev Peter Quinn

1FindaGrave.com. "Born in Ireland to Hugh Quinn (1732-98) and Margaret Fondren Quinn (1730-?). He immigrated with his father to the Carolinas in the 1760s. He married Judith Robinson on Aug. 11, 1776, in Mecklenburg County, VA. He was a private in the 8th Virginia Regiment, Revolutionary War. Peter & Judith settled on the border of North and South Carolina before 1780. For 30 years he was a large land owner in the Carolinas, owning several plantations in Lincoln County, NC, and York County, SC, totaling over 1000 acres. However, in 1811-1812, at the advanced age of 61, Peter Quin migrated to Marion County, Mississippi Territory, settling on the Bogue Chitto River in present day Pike County. Pike at that time was part of Marion County. Peter Quin was joined by six of his seven children.

Seven children: Mary Quin McAfee (1777-? in NC), Daniel Quin (1779-1859 in MS), Richard Quin (1780-1843 in MS; grave is lost), Nancy Quin Bridges (1782-1867 in MS), Henry Quin (1783-1830 in MS), Hugh Quin (1785-1864 in MS) & Peter Quin, Jr. (1787-1835 in MS).

Peter Quin is the patriarch of the illustrious Quin family that served in numerous state and local public offices in Mississippi and Pike, Lawrence, Scott and Rankin counties in the 1800s. The Pike County chapter of the D.A.R. is named the Judith Robinson chapter in honor of his wife, Judith Robinson Quin, and for Peter's service in the Revolutionary War.

In most records, the name is spelled Quin. A few relatives seem to have used the Quinn spelling. Now it is spelled Quin." http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=13850182.
