I am seeking information on John Dergan/Durgin/Durgan (bef 1775-) who settled in White County Tennessee ca 1806. He was Registrar of that County from 1807-1815. It is believed that he married Sarah 'Sally' Terry, daughter of John Terry and Elizabeth "Betty" Bounds.

The name was spelled a variety of ways in different records, most predominantly those versions mentioned above.

Here is a time line of John Dergan/Durgin/Durgan as gleaned from various records

bef 1775 John is born
1806 Removes to White County Tennessee
1807-1815 Registrar of White County TN
1820 listed as John 'Durgan' on White County TN census
1820 Had six children - 3 sons, 3 daus
1828 Mentioned in the 'Village Messenger' of Lincoln County TN
1830 Listed on the Lincoln County TN census

Any information at all on this family would be greatly appreciated.
