"James Quinn moved with the family from Maryland to Virginia and thence to Georgia and married there. He emigrated with his brothers John and Robert to Ohio in 1805 and settled about five miles northeast of Eaton on what is now [1873] the Lewisburg road in Twin Township, Preble County and just four miles north of Robert S. Quinn's farm. He lived there until about the year 1838 when he sold the farm and started to move with his family to the then territory of Iowa. He was taken sick on the road and died and was buried somewhere in the state of Illinois, but I do not know the locality. His family continued the journey and settled in Scott County not very far from the city of Davenport. By his wife, whose maiden name was Crozier, and who was a niece of the wife of his brother William, he had four sons, Joseph, John, William and James and two daughters, Mary, or Polly, and Matilda. The only one of the family who may be alive [1873] is the youngest son James."
