    2. [S1251] Find A Grave, James Rankin.
      Son of Samuel and Elenor (Elen) Alexander Rankin, James bonded to marry Polly Johnson 26 Aug 1812 in LIncoln County.
      In 1814 Samuel Rankin willed his home on Dutchman's Creek to James; and, from that time, if not earlier, James and Polly Rankin lived in the Rankin homestead. There most of their nine children were born, eight living to maturity.
      James may have been in failing health on 20 September 1832 when his second son Richard Johnson Rankin recorded the James and Polly family in his father's copy of Brooke's Gazateer, pub ___.
      One week later, on 27 Nov 1832, James signed his will. It was probated in the Jan 1833 Session, Lincoln County Court.
