The link between Larkin K. and James S. is only conjecture. It is based on a 1820 census record for Smith County, Tennessee which lists a Sarah Austin b. 1790-1800 (presumably a widow), one female b. 1804-1810, and four males b. 1810-1820. A family tradition of one-time residence in Smith County, Tennessee, and the given birth dates of Larkin (~1815) and James (~1820) tend to support this conjecture. Further research is required.
