    Notes 
    • See dau. Nancy's entry for Hardesty's extract tying Andrew to Wood Co. Dau. Martha's death record also ties him to Wood co.

      In 1850 Highland census, an Andrew Gwin, age 4, lives with John D. & Margaret Ervine (40s) at #91, p74. He may have a sister Mary, age 12, with him; it's hard to tell if her name is Gwin or Ervin. But Andrew is too young to be this Andrew, so don't know who this is, or even if his name is really Gwin.
