John Pownall (b1708)s/o George & Hannah

Does anyone know of documentation that gives the children of John Pownall (b-1708 d-1771) son of George and Hannah (Hutchinson) Pownall of Bucks Co., PA? I've seen the Pownall book by Mr. Wissinger, and even though is has much valuable info,it has so many errors in my line alone that I'm afraid to trust the info without finding the sources he used. Supposedly Isaac Pownall, of Hampshire Co., VA (WV), was John's son. Where did this come from? My line went from Hampshire Co, VA (WV) to OH to Fulton Co, IN. If this sounds like your line, BEWARE. There are several errors in most of the common gedcoms and histories floating around regarding the line of Thomas and Elizabeth Pownall. Much of it seems to be traced to the Wissinger book.
