I have researched this thoroughly and have been able to prove that John was the son of John Medlin I (that's a one) and his wife, Fereby Whitley. There is erroneous information out there that has him married to someone else, but his parents are as I have stated above. This information has been accepted by the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) to grant membership to a cousin of mine, and these folks (the DAR) are VERY picky about proving the lineage.
I have lots of information on John and Fereby, as well as a great deal on John and Piety Hendrix, who was born and raised in/near Abbeville, SC. Please respond to me at my e-mail address...firstname.lastname@example.org...if
you would like more information on any or all of the above. Anne
