  1.   This John, and his wife Mary, had a son Edward, who was twice married, first to Mary Stuart, and then to Mary Bratton. Edward removed to Ohio. A daughter Margaret married Bethel Herring, while another daughter Mary married Francis Bell. Their second son, Thomas, married Sarah Hogsett, and moved to the state of Illinois, the third son John married Ann Crawford. Both John and his wife died when their three sons, John H., George H. and James A. C. were quite young. The last two children of John and Mary were a daughter Jane, and a fourth son, James. Neither married.

    If this John is indeed the son of Edward and Mary Curry Erwin he is the only one of their children to be found in Augusta County into the 1800s.
