Annie (not) Sparks, wife of David Pinkerton

Annie SHIPTON is the daughter of Robert SHIPTON and Elizabeth CHAPMAN, her sister is Esther SHIPTON who married Timothy PARKS. This is where the "Sparks" came from which stuck to Annie.

David PINKERTON died about 1782 from injuries suffered in the revolution and his and Annie's children were placed in custody of John ARMSTRONG in 1784. In August 1785, Annie went to court to get custody of her children, Robert and Margaret, who were twins and daughter Elizabeth who apparently died as a young child.

Annie married Robert JORDAN 17 Mar 1794 in Orange County, North Carolina. She had no other children.

Another HUGE error people have made is that David who married Annie SHIPTON had a neice, Margaret, who was born within months of David and Annie's daughter Margaret and they have that neice, Margaret, married to her own brother, David.

David Pinkerton & Annie SHIPTON's daughter Margaret b: 22 Feb 1779 (a twin to Robert Chapman Pinkerton) married her first cousin, David PINKERTON who is the son of William A. Pinkerton and brother of David who was married to Annie SHIPTON.

William A.Pinkerton's daughter, Margaret, born 12 Oct 1779 married John WHITAKER. No children of this union.

Though this family was close, and first cousins married, brother and sister did not.

The PINKERTON family has been really messed up by poor research which has been copied and repeated again and again
