I hope this post reaches you. George Marion O'Quin is my great great great great grandfather. Recently I have been trying to put together all the puzzle pieces as to where exactly we came from. George Marion would be the reason my branch of the O'Quins is in TX. I do know that George Marion is the son of Edmond O'Quin and was born in Lincoln County Tenn. Edmond died and George moved to MO with his mother and brothers and sister. I know that George and his brother Joseph enlisted in the 24 MO Vol infantry and after the war George moved to the North Brown Farming Community near present day Goldthwaite,TX where he lived the remainder of his life and raised his family. I have been to the site of the North Brown Community and the cemetery to which he helped found and was buried. I have lots of questions and would love some information to all the missing puzzle pieces. I hope this reaches you.
Sincerely, Jake O'Quin of Stephenville/Mineral Wells, TX
