Interesting discussion of FIRST names, including 'Kinchen' and 'Exum'. For
some reason this person seems to know when and where Hardy Lewter & Rebecca
Bunn were married??!!!

For those of you who don't think I have one oar in the water, I want to
review for you the many times our RUFFIN, KINCHEN and even EXUM names that
are used as given names and the locations of such persons. I am hoping
that some of you researching these areas will share with those having these
surnames as given names will help them see if they connect to us. Granted,
a family could name a child after a well-known community figure, but most
of the time (other than for great historical figures) this is not the case
and the name is somewhere a family a surname.

Opinions aside, let's see what this group can do to help those who found
these odd names in their lineage. Take note of locations as the lines we
know in the same areas could relate to these people. Would love to hear
any tidbit that could help the researchers connected to these.
