This is a toughie! William Lawing was born about 1725, place unknown. I’ve seen Germany as a place and various dates of birth. I’ve also seen England. Family lore places his death in Tennessee about 1820 (no source). Check out his profile [[lawing-75]] and see if there is anything you might be able to help with. The bio may give some leads.
William’s surname has variously been spelled Lewin, Lewing (this last showed up on some of his Confederate descendants’ records. His son, Andrew, spelled in Lawing grave stone at Hopewell Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Mecklenburg County, NC.
William supposedly served in the French and Indian War, but I have not seen the documentation. His wife, Jean (Killian) Lawing is better documented than he is.
Thanks ahead of time for any assistance!
