Is Hugh Linn of Coldwater Creek the same person as Hugh Linn (1) for a discussion of a possible confusion.

Overview

This article is about Hugh Linn who married Margaret Houston.


Hugh Linn of Brandywine Hundred, Delaware married Margaret Houston, daughter of Christopher Huston (see Wife of Hugh Linn (1) for discussion) some time prior to 1726[1].

This couple is commonly said to have moved to Cold Watercreek in Rowan County, NC. about 1770, bur direct confirming evidence for this has not been found. There is no question that a Hugh Linn lived in Brandywine Hundred c. 1720-1760. Nor is it questioned that there was a Hugh Linn on Cold Water Creek after 1770. Available evidence suggests that they are in fact different people. A critical discrepancy is the fact that the first name of the wife of Hugh Linn of Brandywine Hundred was "Margaret", but the first name of the wife of Hugh Linn oc Cold Water Creek is usually given as "Mary". Some describe her as "Mary Margaret", but this seems to be simply an attempt to reconcile the discrepancy. There are numerous records for a Hugh Linn living in Old Chester County , including some after 1770. A Margaret Linn dies there 1758, and her will is administered by "Hugh Linn Junior". This implies that Margaret Linn's husband was "Hugh Linn, Sr. This would be consistent with Hugh Linn, soninlaw of Christopher Houston, dieing in Old Chester sometime before 1758. That would mean that Hugh Linn of Cold Water Creek is a different person. A Hugh Linn witnessed the will of John Carter, a Quaker in 1760. (See: Document:Will of John Carter, Chester County, 1760. This presumably Hugh Linn, Jr.
