Information on Edward Erwin

1.Edward Erwin, b. 1740 and reported to have married a Curry.

This Edward is the oldest son of John and Jean Curry Erwin, who first married Elizabeth Curry in 1762, and in 1809 married Sarah Percy. A daughter of this second marriage married Abraham Hanna. Her children are named on p.15, with a further statement: “Hugh and Henry Francis (Hanna) own and live on the original Edward Erwin place on Mossy Creek, adjacent to the old iron works. The old Hanna place is a mile or so west of the original land of Edward Erwin, Jr., and was never owned by Edward Erwin, Sr., but by Edward, the son of John & Jean Curry Erwin.

Edward and Mary Curry Erwin deeded 200 acres of land to their son Edward, identifying him as “Edward the younger”. The son Edward also had a wife Mary. They lived for a time in Greenbrier County, VA, then in 1790 sold the 200 acres above to Nicholas Mires, and were not found in VA afterwards. There was a younger Edward in Hawkins Co., TN by 1800, also not identified, who could have been the father of James and William Erwin, or possibly an older brother.
