Thanks a million for your reply. I am less active as a researcher than I used to be. My Jadwin connection is through the Jeremiah who appears after the Revolutionary War in NC, gets a land grant in TN for his service in the NC Militia and whose descendants went on to Missouri in the 1840's. I keep trying to fill in the gaps for this Jeremiah covering his movements from Maryland to NC.

There was a Jeremiah Jadwin who married Rachel
Davis, 1749 in Queen Anne's county, MD, who is a descendant of the John Jadwin (Quaker), son of Robert, the immigrant. I think this Jeremiah and Rachel Jadwin may have been the parents of a Jeremiah and David Jadwin who are listed in Chester Hundred, Queen Anne's County, MD, Military Census of 1778 as being of military age.

These two boys, Jeremiah and David, would have been very young men in Maryland, probably not married and owning no property, thereby leaving no paper trail except for the listing in the military census.

One family tradition among the Pennsylvania Jadwins is that two cousins went off to war and were never heard from again.

The late Howard Jadwin (of the Missouri branch) published his work on this family about 40 years ago and Regina Barry has some excellent material available on her web site.

But to date, no one has been able to cover the jump from MD to NC.

Best regards and congratulations on your work. That part about Jedburgh, Scotland, was new to me, and is very interesting. I had read someplace that the family moved several times to avoid religious persecution, being Church of England (except for Quaker John.
