Of course, I am speaking above in sweeping generalities; exceptions to the rule, as always, existed. We do not know whether Finis himself is buried there with his first wife, or in the Mc Corkle Cemetery in Dyer County (west of Yorkville and east of Newbern), received a U. patent on a certain improvements on looms for weaving. I do wonder, though, if the Pennsylvania inventor was kin to our Zarecors. Four months later, in December 2009, I don't feel the desperate need to sleep. It's beyond cavil, from Margaret's own letters transcribed herein, that she was born in August of 1770. "Mollie" Mary was born in Nelson Co., Kentucky (in Botland near Bardstown) to John Cotton (died 1852, Botland, Nelson Co., KY) & Juliet TONG Cotton (Juliet was interred while visiting her daughter in Tennessee in the Mc Corkle Cemetery, Dyer Co., Tenn.).), who is interred at Mt., just north of Newbern, Tennessee, in contiguous OBION County.
