    Notes 
    • Elizabeth was a full blooded Cherokee Indian. She had first married a Francis Patterson. her maiden name is not known. Juanita Johnson of New Mexico, a descendant of Mary June McGrew and her husband Benjamin Maddox, sent photographs of Elizabeth McGrew to Esther McGrew Hardin in San Antonio. She did appear to be Native American from the photo.

      Court records show Elizabeth's daughter, Twiney Pierce married Hiram McLaughlin, so Elizabeth may have been married twice before, to a Pierce and a Patterson. (Twiney might also have been previously married).  Twiney's marriage is recorded in Marion County, Mississippi, Marriage Record Book "A" 1812-1824, with "consent by James and Elizabeth McGrew for Twiney Pierce, daughter of Elizabeth McGrew.' Twiney married Hiram McLaughlin on 27 Sept 1823.

      A divorce court in Marion Co, MS has a lawsuit between Francis Patterson and James McGrew about support for Twiney Pierce.

      Wynena McGrew writes that she died of inflammation after being ill for 25 days in Limestone County, Texas.

    • According to the Church of the Latter-day Saints "Ancestral File-ver 4.15",  Alexander McGrew and Elizabeth Blackburn were also shown as the parents of Thomas McGrew (b. 1824 in Marion County, Mississippi) and Samantha McGrew (b. 1826 in Marion County, Mississippi). However, the research of Wynema McGrew of Hattiesburg, Mississippi shows that Thomas and Samantha are actually the children of James Tate McGrew (the brother of Alexander McGrew) and Elizabeth Patterson McGrew.
