NOTE: I speculate that this is Winnie, though the name could be as easily read as Minnie, and the last name has deviated from a nice, clean McEwen, because the ages between 1850 and 1870 are a close enough match, and because the Averys in the household are the children of her brother, Drury Vinson Avery who died in 1863. TN had many McIlwain and McCaslin families--wonder if this is like Robason/Robertson/Robinson (all the same with a southern accent, so they spelled it any old which-way).
Gibson County marriage records have a Bettie McEwen marrying Robert F. Senter in 1876. No idea if this is Winifred's Elizabeth.
