    Notes 
    • Everette McGrew instead puts his date of birth ca 1822.  However, as he served in the Mexican War in 1836, he was likely the eldest born of the children of James Tate and his wife Elizabeth.  Hardin enlisted on 12 Mar 1838 in Robertston County as a private under Captain N. Doyle, Volunteer Rangers. He was discharged 10 Jun 1839. William and Flood McGrew, his brothers, also enlisted and were discharged at the same time.

      Robert Lee McGrew of Pearland, TX also indicated that James Tate McGrew and his wife Elizabeth had a son named Hardin R. McGrew, but he is not mentioned in James Tate McGrew's will. The book THE SOUTHERN McGREWS GREW indicates he died before his father drew up his will.

      Veteren of the Mexican War of 1836, paid a land grant in Robertson Co, TX for 1476 acres. He apparently died around 1839/1840, before his father's will was made, but he was on the 1840 tax list.  He left his estate to his mother, Elizabeth, and she and two sons sold the headright to Reuban Anderson on 20 May 1850 for $20,000.

    • 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.
