Other settlers at that time and neighborhood were the Haglers , Laniers, Whitleys, Winns, Reeves, Outlaws, Calstons, Colliers, Curleys, Lankfords and Crosswells."

      John K. O'Quinn (you) said: "Hey, cousins: I do not wish to be a smart aleck, but there is no Robertson County in NC. Believe you need to look into Robeson Co. which was formed in 1786. It was in that area that my gr-gr-grandfather Silas was born. He had uncles named John, Hardy, Ezekiel and Tarlor, aunts named Charity, Martha and Rachel. My 20 years of research has found all of these. The above O'Quins were, I believe the children of Alexander O'Quin b.c.1730, d.c. 179?"
