The Kentucky connection is a confusing one. Albin is the only one of the original 5 siblings that claim Kentucky on the Census records. The rest of them, including Caswell, all claim Tennessee as their birthplace. I believe Franklin Polk knew what he was talking about when he wrote "Sparty". The problem is that there are Ewtons in Kentucky in the later 1800s (i.e. Greenberry Ewton in Clay Co.), and Caswell's children are found moving back and forth between Tenn. and Kent.

As far as the Wootons in the area, I believe now that Benjamin Wooton (Ewton) may have been family, but wasn't as closely related as I first thought. He was the brother of Rhodom Wooton. They both lived in White Co., and were Justices of the Peace. I have contacted a woman that traces her lineage through Benjamin and Rhodom and their brothers, and she claims she knows all of thier children and Albin isn't among them. However, I'm not giving up on this yet. I am developing some thoeries about the Ewton's migration out of North Carolina, and when I get it all together, I'm optimistic it is going to give us all some new places to look. I'll keep you posted.
