Commissioners in Lincolnton NC LINCOLN COURIER 2 December 1847--Before Dellingers & Johnstons were kin

These families had been around since before the Revolution, and all were Whigs in the war. But it took another half century and the moves to Mississippi before Costners (who were Dellingers) married Bells (who were Ewarts & therefore kin to the Johnstons). Will Johnston, grandson of Jane Ewart, was a brother in law of Cyrus Hunter, the historian, both married to Forney women. Will was a son of Colonel James Johnston, who has a plaque at King's Mountain.
