James KEWN 1768 Charleston, SC

Classification: Query
There is a James KEWN per the below information. I believe he is the same person on the 1790 census below. DENA tests have matched the James Oscar CAIN b before 1774 and living Abbeville District, Charleston SC with KEANE surnames in the US and Ireland. I have been at a brick wall and haven't been able to backtrack my James Oscar CAIN until I started looking at alternate spellings. I think there is a really good chance that James KEWN below is my James Oscar CAIN. I was wondering if anyone is tracking this line?

My James Oscar CAIN married Anne WILSON and had at least two children: James Oscar CAIN Jr. (b1796 prob SC, d1888 Tuscaloosa Co., AL) and William. James Sr. is shown on census as a hatter.
