John Hearn Jr. was a wheelright and served as a Virginia Militia soldier during the latter part of the Revolutionary War. He married Nancy Lynch and in 1807 migrated by ox-cart to Georgia, first settling in Hancock County. Several years later he moved to Putnam County, Georgia, where the family was well-acquainted or related to the Carters and other families who later moved to Troup County, such as the Greers, Lynches and Carters. John Hearn had two known sons: Lewis H. Hearn and Charles W. Hearn, both of whom had children who married descendants of Thomas Carter.
