      Per a Family Group Sheet prepared by Mary Frances SMITH Fisher of Jackson, Mississippi, Alexander McGrew and his wife Elizabeth Blackburn were the parents of nine known children, and three additional children, a daughter born ca. 1810-1815 per the 1820 and 1830 Marion County, Mississippi census, a daughter born ca. 1820-1825, per the 1830 and 1840 census, and a son born ca. 1830-1835, per the 1840 census. Bettye Bragg Wagstaff of Sabine County, Texas indicated that some researchers indicate 10 children were born.

      Mary Fisher used the following information in her research: 1816 MISS Marion County census 7th page 1820 MISS Marion County census page 85 1 male under 10, 1 male 10-16, 1 male 26-45 3 females under 10, 1 female 16-26 1830 MISS Marion County census page 117 5 sons, 4 daughters plus he and Elizabeth 1840 MISS Marion County census page 117 1850 TEX   Sabine County census- Elizabeth McGrew. He was listed on the Mortality Schedule. 1860 MISS Perry County   census page 12, Family # 88/81 Elizabeth McGrew

      Her family group sheet lists the following children:
      **James Alexander McGrew b. ca 1810 m. to Elizabeth Lott
      Harriet McGrew b. ca 1813 m. to John C. Partin
      **William McGrew b. ca 1815 m. to Dorinda Lott

      **Margaret McGrew b. circa 1835
      **Adaline McGrew b. circa 1838

      **Matches the LDS Family Group Sheet from Ancestral File Ver 4.15. The LDS sheet did not include Harriet McGrew, and additionally showed the following three children, apparently in error:
      Thomas McGrew b. ca 1824
      Samantha McGrewb. ca 1826
      -male McGrew b. prior to 1830, m. 1838 to Serena ? and died 1842

      Thomas and Samantha are actually the children of Alexander's brother, James Tate McGrew. They are listed in his will.
