Benjamin Shinn, fourth child of Benjamin and Abigail (Urie) Shinn, was born in Cabarrus County, North Carolina, 1788; apprenticed to a shoemaker in 1806. After learning his trade, and selling his allotmentin his father's estate (see sketch of Josiah Carlock), he started for Georgia.He worked at his trade for awhile, and then became a prospector and manager ofmines in Georgia and Alabama. In 1836 enlisted for the campaign against the Creek Indians. In 1846 enlisted in Co. I the 1st Georgia. Regiment (Fannin's Avengers), at Griffen, under Captain H. J. Sargent, and set out for Mexico. He tookpart in the storming of Vera Cruz and was killed at Camargo, 1/10/1847. He married twice: (1) at Griffen, Ga., to Tabitha Blackburn; (2) at Griffen, Ga., to(???). Children of Benjamin and Tabitha (Blackburn) Shinn. 1012. (1) Susan Shinn, b. 1828; m. Elijah Blackburn. 1013. (2) Ransom Shinn, b. 1830; m. Laura Logan. 1014. (3) James Madison Shinn, b. 1833; m. Mahala Muse. 1015.(4) Elizabeth Shinn, b. 1835; m. William Johnson. 1016. (5) Josiah Shinn, b. 8/4/1837; m. (???) (???). Children of the Second Marriage. 1017. 1 (6) Urastus Shinn; 2 (7) Derby Shinn; 3 (8) Rennie Shinn. John Harkey, with Mary, the mother of the three Harkeys; Robert McNulty and family, Nellie and Catherine Harkey, Pink Fowler, John Linken and family, Jackson Shandy and family, Charles Pless and William Brooks. For many weeks they traveled over mountains, and through dense forests, until at last they set down in Pope County, Arkansas, where they settled and remained. To write their history further wouldbe to write the history of Pope County. From the loins of one of the children named above have sprung over eight hundred descendants, so that the blood of Shinn is widely disseminated into families of that region that wear other names. Where the flourishing town of Russellville now stands there was but a single house, that of Dr. Russell. Near this the Shinns and Harkeys located. And although the town bears the name Russellville, its life and history are built upon the lives and deeds of men who wore the surnames Russell, Harkey andShinn
