Old John McElrath of Rowan and Iredell Cos., NC

Does anyone know who the children and grandchildren of John McElrath of Rowan and Iredell Cos., NC were?I am researching the Derreberry family, also of the area, and have run across a deed record from 1815 describing land laid out for John McElrath of Rowan and Iredell Cos., named as the grandfather of several parties mentioned in the deed.
Unfortunately, the wording of the deed is somewhat ambiguous and I'm not certain exactly which of the parties were grandchildren of John.Knowing the names of some of his children and grandchildren would help a great deal.
Thanks for any help.
