I am trying to clarify information pertaining to Capt. Thomas Rankin. According to various Rankin family records posted here and elsewhere, he was born in Frederick, VA and died in Harrison Co., KY.
DAR records indicate that there were two Thomas Rankins who served as captains in the War for Independence. The Virginia Thomas Rankin was born in 1751 in Frederick County, VA. The PA Thomas Rankin, born 1750, is recorded as marrying Hannah Jane Montgomery and dying in 1820 in Harrison Co., KY. This is according to DAR. If anyone has documentary evidence one way or the other, I would like to know of it.
