    Notes 
    • The the LDS Ancestral File, ver 4.15 incorrectly shows Thomas as a son of Alexander and Elizabeth (Blackburn) McGrew. However, according to McGrew researcher Wynema McGrew of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, he is actually the son of James Tate McGrew (Alexander's brother) and his wife Elizabeth. Per THE SOUTHERN McGREWS GREW he appeared before the Board of Land Commissioners for Robertson County, Texas in 1847  for 320 acres. He was authorized to locate and survey out any of the vacant land in the Republic. On the 1850 census, Alfred Hicks, a laborer, was living with them. The same Alfred Hicks lived with his brother's--John Flood McGrew--family in 1860.

    • 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.
