Dear Cousin Jen,

I will get this confused if I get too detailed. The King's Mountain Robert Ewart is my GGGGG Grandfather and (you know these Scots) my GGGGG Grandfather.

Don't worry.

The Margaret Ewart Adams who rode the unruly stallion to King's Mountain on Sunday, the day after the battle, was the daughter of the weaver Robert Ewart and the sister of the Committee of Safety Robert Ewart. This younger Robert's daughter Margaret who married Joseph Jack was the niece of the woman who rode to King's Mountain the day after the battle.

The son is not in the rosters of soldiers at King's Mountain but at least one report has my Aunt Margaret (as I call her to keep her straight) going to look for both husband William and son Williamm-and of course she would have known that her brother Robert was there and some of her nephews by marriage and I think a blood nephew. The stories don't mention her other relatives.

So relax. There are just too many with the same name.

A more recent descendant of this bunch, Alice Bell, became Alice Bell Costner and her sister in law Alice Costner became Alice Costner Bell.
