James McKinney was a private in War of 1812 and dis 10 JAN 1814.


James md Sarah Gouge/Poe in 1810 Campbell Co. 

NOTE: … family records state Sarah was a Gouge but James William McKinney's pension application gives her name as Poe and signed under oath.  She was b 2 Feb 1792 in NC, m 1810 Campbell Co. TN and migrated with her husband to Cole Co abt 1817/18.  The Gouge family that shows up in Campbell Co were Martin (1780) and William (1768) who were brothers and sons of James Gouge.  Also Lindsey Poe is there in Campbell Co., TN  ….. [possibly] … he might have been a brother to Milley [Poe] and Sarah was his daughter.  … these three families [appear to have] migrated together from Wilkes Co. NC to Campbell Co. TN and then Gouge and McKinney went on to Cole Co., MO. 


Martin Gouge 1806 (son of William and Milley Poe Gouge) named his 2nd son James Linsey Gouge.

Notes from a researcher: Franklin County


Franklin County Home Guards




"WHEREAS, The honor of the United States has made it necessary that war should

be declared against Great Britain by the United States; and whereas, in this

contest it may evidently happen that the active part of our force may be

called off to distant service, by which an opportunity will be afforded to the

disaffected (if any such there should be amongst us), to do much mischief:

Therefore, for the purpose of defending the frontiers and property of our

younger brethren when fighting our battles abroad, and to suppress and put

down any combination which may manifest itself inimical to our beloved

country we, the undersigned, all over forty-five years of age, and most of

whom fought in the late Revolutionary war. have embodied ourselves into a

company, to be denominated the Revolutionary Volunteers of Franklin County;

and when the company is formed, officers to command the same shall be elected

by the suffrages of the members of the company.

26 August 1833 Franklin County

REYNOLDS states that his first tour of duty began 16 March 1780. This was stated during the first declaration but was incorrectly recorded by his "comrad' who wrote it. REYNOLDS believes the error was caused by his own great deafness and the consequent great difficulty of holding a conversation. During this tour he was engaged in guarding the frontiers of South Carolina under Capt. KILGORE. His second tour began 1 Sept. 1781: third tour began 2 June 1782; fourth tour began 2 Dec. 1782, and was for the purpose of keeping down the Tories, who still continued to molest and maraud the settlements. The night after the affiant returned home form performance of this tour of duty the Tories, about 14 or 15 in number, came riding through the yard of affiants step-father. Affant went off the same night and lay in the woods, and the next morning he went and joined Capt. BLOSSINGAME'S company...."Most of his service was performed in Spartanburg District.

Witnesses David WEAVER, Alpha FREEMAN


1916 Inquiry of Miss Harriet TALBOT of Nashville, Tenn.

1936 Inquiry of Mrs. Charles S PASSMORE of Butte, Montana

1940 Inquiry of Janie M. Mitchell of Edgefield, S.C.

Many of the early settlers of this county were survivors of the war of the Revolution; and when the war of 1812 broke out between this country and Great Britain, the young men of Franklin County, sons of the veterans of 1776, formed themselves into "ranks of war, " under the heroic Jackson, and others, to maintain the flag of the young republic.

In evidence of the foregoing the following from the Home Journal of. September 30, 1880, is inserted: " In the Home Journal, office we have the manuscript of what we print. It is yellow with dust, age and decay. The paper is just such as could be had in those days. This document was found among the papers of our grandfather, Wallis Estill, who has left quite a family of descendants in this county. It appears that the county had been drained of young men, and the old men -- those over forty-five--formed themselves into a company to protect the honor of the United States against any disaffected persons, and against those who might do injury to the property of the younger men who had to go to battle. In the list of names will be found many familiar here in Franklin County Read it and see how nobly ministers of the gospel entered in behalf of liberty.
