In Reply to: John Carlin, SC and Buncombe, again. by Teresa Stuart de Rios of 65

Teresa something you may be interested in. I found a John Carlin listed in a book on th history of Transylvania Co. I thought this could explain why in 1810 there was only the one Carland/Carlin in Greenville, SC.
"According to a book on the history of Transylvania County, North Carolina; in 1802 the United States ceceded a piece of land to the state of Georgia. This strip of land in present day is near Brevard (Transylvania Co., NC) in the upper French Broad River Valley and a small section of Henderson County, North Carolina. It was known as Walton County Georgia.
A census was performed there in 1804 and on the list is a John Carlin with 4 free whites. According to a site on "Old" Walton County, North Carolina decided to claim this land and in December of 1810 what is known as Walton War began. By January 1811, the was was over but many Georgians were killed or taken prisoner."
Maybe one day we will be able to figure old John Carlin out!
