A Tate descendant who believes her family are kin to the Union Co., Tates, and I are working on the theory that my Margaret (McCown) Allred (b1802 SC), and her Sarah (LNU) Tate (b1801, SC), might possibly be McCown/McKown sisters.
I see the William McKown you have posted, had two daughters named Margaret and Sarah. Do you have any additional info on them?
Also, do you know if the deed abstract below, is connected to any of your McKown family? Thank you.
