Susan, Ron, and others,
There is Marquis deLaFayette Erwin, M.D., who
married his cousin Margaret Erwin McDowell....
Was he also an attorney? (1793-1824)
Marquis ("called Marcus") has been listed
as the father of Marcus D. Erwin who moved
to Indiana (b. 1813). This seems a little
implausible. I wish I could substantiate
or falsify this. Marcus D. Erwin was married
to Jane ? from NC (?). They were the parents of
my great grandfather, James Albert Erwin,
b. 1842, IN. Marcus died in Iowa. James
died in CA. My Marcus could have been the
son of Alexander Erwin, son of Arthur Erwin.
This Alexander was the uncle of Marquis (Alex
was the brother of William Willoughby Erwin).
Any info?
