My great great grandfather James Hiram Modlin was born on February 22, 1863 in Nashville, Tennessee. He died on October 9, 1949 in Ft. Mitchell, Kentucky. His father was William S. Modlin, who was drafted and thus served in the Confederate Army in the Civil War, and Cinthia A. Sledge. His great-grandfather was Samuel Modlin who was from Greensboro/Perquimans County, North Carolina and who enlisted in May 1777 in the North Carolina Continental line in the Revolutionary War. This was despite the fact that he was a Quaker. His ancestor was Ezekial Maudlin who was a Quaker from England who migrated to America and died on May 16, 1705 in Perquimans County, North Carolina.
