After my initial cleanup after merge, the biographical information on Ephraim McDowell is still enornous. I didn't have time to scour the source information for the essential nuggets of his life in Ulster and in the New World. I'm sure I may have jettisoned some important facts of his life. I did try to remove duplicated source information. For part of his life, he lived in Belfast, County Antrim, and fought in the siege there. He eventually came to the colonies and went to what is now called Rockbridge County, Virginia, but when he settled there, it was still Augusta County. Sources are replete with anachronistic references to counties and other localities not then in existence. Someone needs to cull out the duplication between sources.
