William McEwan

(say 1735 - )

BMDB data

     William McEwan was born say 1735 Par. of Kincardine, PER, SCT, by naming pattern, son of a Wiliam McEWAN and Margaret - who could possibly be Margaret GRAY
There's also a William bap. 12 Feb 1736 to John McEWAN and Jean DOG at Kilmadock.1,2
     William McEwan married Janet Ferguson say 1760 ?Kincardine, PER, SCT.
     William is included on these pages because investigations into a DNA match led back to his family.
Which led to a review of the family of William & Margaret (GRAY) McEWAN, and the possibility that William, baptized 1736 St Ninians might just be William married to Janet FERGUSON.
The DNA evidence has yet to be evaluated as the match concerned is only on Ancestry, not GEDMatch, so segment analysis is not possible.2

All the other info

     William McEwan baptized St Ninians 1736, the son of William McEwan and Margaret Gray who later moved to Kincardine and William McEwan having children with Janet Ferguson in Kincardine (Ochtertyre for at least one) from 1762 to 1782 in 1736 are possibly the same person.2

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area.
