A Potential Break in our Stone Wall

My brother, Dick, had a series of postings with Jackson Weller on a surname bulletin board.  Jackson
says that he is descended from William McCown of York Co., South Carolina from the 1790 US
Census and that said William was the father of our great great grandfather, Lawrence McCown.

Jackson is descended from Leander McCown who in turn was a son of Lawrence McCown along
with my great grandfather, William McCown, Eli McCown and Granville McCown.  If Jackson
has a male relative in the McCown line, I hope to persuade him to take the FTDNA Y-DNA test
because that would prove or disprove our relationship to William of York County and with Jackson.

These postings were in 2000 and 2001 so the room for uncertainty is great, but as previously noted,
hope springs eternal.
