John F. Hearn, Patriot

Posted by Michael O'Hearn on August 10, 2012 at 9:05 PM

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.

From what I can tell, John married Nancy Lynch on 12/27/1797. If, as tradition holds, he served in the Revolution, he would have been REALLY young, since he was born in 1767 and the war was over by October 1781. He would have been 14, at the oldest.
