  John Pinkerton - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Pinkerton (February, 1758—March 10, 1826 [1]) was a British antiquarian, author, forger, numismatist, pseudo-historian, and early advocate of Germanic racial supremacy theory.
Pinkerton subsequently invented a sequel to this epic, but after he was exposed by Joseph Ritson, he owned up to the forgery.
John Pinkerton's works are seen today as spurious, even ignoring the heavy infusion of extreme racism and Germanic racial supremacy theory.

 John Pinkerton
PINKERTON, JOHN, a voluminous historian and critic, was born at Edinburgh on the 11th February, 1758.
The opening of young Pinkerton’s intellect fell to the charge of an old woman acting as schoolmistress of a village near Edinburgh, and he was afterwards removed to the grammar school of Lanark.
But Pinkerton had a mind too roughly cast for poetry, and it was only when his imitations were mistaken for the rudeness of antiquity that his verses were at all admired.

 Pinkerton Academy History
inkerton Academy was incorporated in 1814 by Major John Pinkerton and Elder James Pinkerton, "old-time merchants of Londonderry." The school, which opened its doors to students on December 4, 1815, was founded for the purpose of promoting piety and virtue and the education of youth in science, languages, and the liberal arts.
During the 1990s, Pinkerton continued preparing for the educational challenges of the 21st century as the value of a traditional education was reexamined.
To accomplish its goal, Pinkerton embraced three fundamental principles: 1) The school's future is built around the strengths of its history and traditions; 2) There is an uncompromised commitment to educational excellence; and 3) There is continuing faith in the democratic way of life.

 John T. Brown's Churches of Christ: L. L. Pinkerton by John T. Brown.
William and Elizabeth (Littig) Pinkerton, his parents, have given twelve preachers to the church, viz.: five sons--William, Lewis, Thomas, Samuel, and Elisha; six grandsons--John, Thomas, and William, sons of William; Burnet and James, sons of Lewis; and William, son of Thomas; and one great-grandson, James N. Crutcher, grandson of Lewis.
Pinkerton passed his childhood and youth amid the scenes and ordinary experiences of farm life, in Chester county, Pa., and Brook county, Va., near Bethany, most of the time being spent in "hard, incessant, ill-requited toil." His educational advantages were limited to an irregular attendance at country schools and one year's study at a Seminary.
In the summer of 1840, Dr. Pinkerton became the preacher of the church at New Union, Woodford county, and in October, 1841, minister of the church in Lexington.
