  • ID: I0531
  • Name: John RANKIN
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: 1856
  • Death: AFT 1870
  • Note:
    I don't have proof that this was the father of Martha Lucy Rankin, but all the evidence points that way.

    According to LDS, John F. Rankin born in 1854. The 1870 census shows John F. at 14 years of age (therefore born 1856). Tabitha Rankin was widowed by 1880 census - six year old Lucy living with family.

    John and Hettie were divorced sometime before 1880. According to Aunt Lucille's genealogy notes, Hettie shot John because he cheated on her (need to verify). It is possible that John Rankin remarried, as suggested by the following 1880 census entry:
