    1. Re: [MARLIN] Tennessee Marlin Family
    2. Shawn Many researchers are waiting to locate the parents of Archibald Marlin who is buried at City Cemetery in Nashville. He was with my ancestor William McWhirter and wife Elizabeth Ferrier, and Thomas Ferrier in Logan county, Ky. and in Tennessee. It has been a brick wall for many years. Logan County Records The indians, numbering 10,000 within a 200 mile radius of Nashborough, continued firing upon the settlers causing numerous deaths and burning their homesteads which made life very precarious on the Cumberland frontier. A year after signing of the Comberland Compact, only about one-forth of settlers remained. More than fifty had been killed and with their crops destroyed, their cattle killed and their food and gunpowder nearly depleted, the rest left for safer quarters in Kentucky.The following court record in Logan Co. Ky., dated January 15, 1782, The following court record in Logan Co., KY dated January 15, 1782, states.

You can send me an email at I have a little information on the Nashville Marlin family line. I just really started working on it again. I am the lady that lived in Virginia, and you copied the information that you had and sent it to me. My great grandfather x 4 was Archibald Marlin, and he was married to Martha Ferrier, and his son Henry Neilly Marlin, was my great grandfather x 3. I am looking for any information that I can find.
