DESCENDANTS OF JACOB WAYNE

                     =========== == ===== =====

    The genealogy of the Wayne family is very difficult to sort

and assemble.  One faction insists that the Waynes are descended

from the McElwain line, while another is sure that they are

descended from the Revolutionary War General "Mad Anthony" Wayne.

 

"Calhoun County Lines & Links" for December 1983 published a

genealogy of the McElwain line with the following quote.

"All Jacob's children took the name "Wayne", and the tax records

of Gilmer and Calhoun Counties show Tunis and Jacob interchanging

the names "McElwain" and "Wayne" from year to year.

Traditionally, the family maintains that they are related to the

Revolutionary General, Mad Anthony Wayne, although there is no

documentation.

    The McElwain name appears in various records as "McElwain",

"Mucklewain", "McCevain" and "McClewain."  Since the objective of

this paper is to assemble information, we will present data as

nearly as possible to the way it came into the writer's hands.
