Notes:

!NOTES:Marty Grant's 5th Great Grand Aunt.;

!NOTES:Is Elizabeth wife of Joseph Rowland a Fouts? I've seen no proof that she is a Fouts. But if she is, she is most likely a sister to Jacob Fouts (c1786) and Leonard Fouts (c1780) with whom her family was associated in Ashe and Macon Counties.

Marriage Notes

!CHILDREN:I've seen no estate records or Will or anything that would prove all of their children. Some are proven by other sources though:
1. John (c1798) with parents in 1850.
2. Elizabeth (c1805) with parents in 1850.
3. George (c1806). No direct proof.
4. Mary (c1810). No direct proof.
5. William (c1813). Mother living with him in 1860.
6. Andrew (c1817). John (c1798) with Andrew's son in 1880 listed as uncle.
7. Eli (c1820). No direct proof.
8. Wesley (c1824) with parents in 1850.
9. Rebecca (c1828) with parents in 1850. 1880 census indicates Elizabeth (#2) is her mother.
10. Susan (c1826) with parents in 1850.
11. Louisa (c1837) with parents in 1850. Might be grandchild instead.
