Re: William Ewing--1700s--TN
As far as I can tell there is no basis for the Frances Mason file that appears on FamilySearch claiming -Arthur, Joseph, etc as children of William Ewing & Elizabeth McNutt. These names do not occur in the particular Ewing family that William comes from., nor is Elizabeth a daughter of Alexander McNutt. None of the family went to the areas where Arthur & Joseph are found, not even Roane Co., TN. There is an excellent book on this Ewing family by Marguerite & Vernon Brown if you are interested at the Family History Library. Unfortunately, it does not give William's family. I have reconstructed it over the years from his will and many other pieces of information. A little research will show almost anyone that the Frances Mason submission is unsubstantiated.
