Jacob HERROD PAULLIN was a son of Jacob PAULLIN (1788-1861) and Polly FURNACE/FURNAS (1793-1853) who had at least 6 children. Jacob's father was Uriah F. PAULLIN (1763 NJ-1812 OH). Uriah was my g'g'g'g'grandfather. Uriah m. Rebekah TERRIL (1766 NJ-1832 OH). Rebekah was a daughter of Adam TERRIL (1742-1790 NJ) and Mary THOMPSON (1751-1787 NJ). Uriah and Rebekah migrated to Greene Co OH where they were very early settlers and founders of the Ohio line of PAULLINs, many of whose descendants are still living there today. One of their sons was Joseph PAULLIN (1795 KY-1865 OH), who was m. twice, first to Lucy Jane MOZEE/MAUZY/MAUSY and second to Mary GOWER. Joseph was b. in KY, while his family was travelling from Cumberland NJ to Greene OH. Joseph and his wife Jane MOZEE/MAUZY/MAUSY had three children, one of whom was Arthur MOZEE PAULLIN. Arthur (6 FEB 1823 OH-1905 IL?) also had 2 wives, Susan E. WILMUTH and Lucy Jane STONE. Dighton PAULLIN (18 FEB 1856 Atlanta, Logan IL-14 NOV 1926 Woodward, Woodward OK) was a child of Arthur's first marriage, to Susan E. WILMUTH (8 APR 1829-12 SEP 1858). Susan and Arthur m. JUN 1, 1844 in OH and she died at age 29. Arthur resided in Bloomington, McLean IL in 1880, acc. to US Census. So...Thomas L. PAULLIN is a grandson of Joseph PAULLIN's brother Jacob PAULLIN, which makes Thomas and Dighton 2nd cousins. I have lots more information, if you are interested. Dighton PAULLIN is my g'grandfather.
