EWING

 

 

According to Dorothy Parry, a Ewing researcher in Allegheny County PA:

 

1.    The Clan Ewen, or MacEwen was originally a western clan, descended from Siolgillevray, one of the Celtic tribes of the Dalriada Scots;

2.    They possessed territory, and were settled under a chief of their own in Argyll (northwestern Scotland), on the shores of Loch Fyne, from the 13th to the middle of the 15th century, when the clan was finally broken up.

3.    That previous to the latter date they had suffered severely in the wars of the times, and both before and after the death of the last chief remnants sought new alliances and homes in Argyll, the Lennox Country, Dumbartonshire, Galloway, and elsewhere.

4.    That at an early period of their history they became connected with Lochaber, if it was not (as Keltie asserts) their original settlement: that a second incursion took place from Lorne at a later period; that the settlers became incorporated with the Camerons, the principal clan in the district, and that the name Ewen in the district from the earliest times of which there is any record.

5.    The name is distinctly of Gaelic and clan origin.

 

 

________ Ewing

 

The children of _______ and _______ Ewing were:

 

1.       William H, born 25 Jul 1813 Allegheny Co PA, married Mary McLaren/McClaren, died 18 Nov 1896 Pomeroy, Meigs Co OH, buried 20 Nov 1896 Beech Grove Cemetery, Pomeroy, Meigs Co OH.

2.       John, born 1820 PA.

3.       James Cahaus/Cassius, born 5 Feb 1824 Allegheny Co PA, married Mary Ann Brown on 4 Aug 1847 Columbiana Co OH, died 21 May 1879 Syracuse, Sutton Township, Meigs Co OH, buried Carleton's Cemetery, Meigs Co OH. James was a Lt. in the Civil War. Mary Ann was born circa 1826 in Fairfield Co OH and died of Bright's Disease (kidney) on 11 Mar 1896 New Lisbon, Columbiana Co OH and is buried in the New Lisbon Cemetery, Columbiana Co OH. According to his Civil War Pension records, James and Mary had seven known children (including Volcalow, ). James' obituary is recorded in the Meigs County (OH) Telegraph on Wednesday 28 May 1879:

 

Syracuse (Sutton Twp, Meigs Co OH). It is with regret that we are called on this week to note the death of Mr. James Ewing, who died at his residence at this place on Wednesday afternoon, May 21, of typhoid fever, at the age of 55 years. The funeral took place from the residence on Thursday at 2 o'clock P.M. and the internment was in Carleton's cemetery. Rev. P.S. Davies conducted the services.

Mr. Ewing was born February 5, 1824 in Allegheny County, Pa. When quite young his parents moved to this state, where he has since resided; having been a resident of Meigs County for a number of years. At the outbreak of the rebellion (Civil War) he was one of first to heed his country's call, and enlisted for three month's in Captain Walker's company, which was raised in Pomeroy.

At the end of the three months, he was honorably discharged. Still finding his country in peril, he with Captain Davis, raised a company for the three years service, of which he was made Second Lieutenant, the company being assigned to the Ninth Virginia Volunteer Infantry. He was soon detached and made one of the commanders of a company called Blazer's Scouts, which did signal and active service to the end of the war.

On one of his scouts, when carrying dispatches, he was ambuscaded (ambushed?), and his horse shot from under him, but he escaped almost miraculously (Note: According to the Historian Darl Stephenson, this ambush occurred on the Berryville Road in the Shenandoah Valley. Captain Blazer reported this in a dispatch. Ewing was only one of five to escape). He was captured by the enemy at one time and taken to Libby Prison, but, being an officer, was soon exchanged and returned to his company, and served until the close of the war. (Note: According to historian Darl Stephenson, Ewing was captured at Summersville WVA in 1862 when two companies of the WVA 9th were surprised there All the men, not just the officers were eventually paroled and exchanged since that system was still going on in 1864. He left the army in the fall of 1864, replaced by Lt. Tom Coles of the 91st Ohio. Coles was killed in Blazer's last fight with Mosby at Kabletown Nov. 18, 1864.)

He was an active worker for the party whose principles he fought for, and was much respected by his opponents as well as his friends. While a citizen of Syracuse, he was always ready to serve the public, and will be missed in many ways. (Editors Note: An article regarding the ambush mentioned is recorded at www.wvcivilwar.com.

Mary/Martha died in 1854. Nothing is known about her ancestry. I have attempted to uncover information about her in Columbiana Co PA and Allegheny Co PA but nothing confirms her parentage.

 

The obituary of William H. Ewing was located in The (Pomeroy OH) Tribune Telegraph, Wednesday 25 Nov 1896:

 

DEATHS. William Ewing, the venerable father of John Ewing and the late W.H.

This sketch states that William Henry came to Pomeroy at the age of 6 and founded the first Ewing grocery store which prospered for many years. William Henrys obituary was located in The (Pomeroy OH) Tribune Telegraph, Wednesday April 22, 1896, Front Page:

Death's Harvest. William Henry Ewing, who sustained fatal injuries by falling down the elevator shaft at his grocery store in this city on the night of March 31, the particulars of which have been given heretofore, died on the evening of the 16th instant at his residence near the Pomeroy Salt Works, after lingering nearly 16 days.

Mr. Ewing united with the Presbyterian Church here in 1869 and was connected officially with the Sunday School for 22 years as Secretary and Treasurer. As a Trustee of the church, he was a very efficient worker during the building of the new house of worship.

Mr. Ewing was in business here for a long series of years and was highly regarded. He served in the City Council one term, which had just expired at the time of his death. He also held other responsible positions.

He was a member of the Mineral Lodge, I.O.O.F. of this city, which order conducted the funeral ceremonies, after short religious exercises at the residence at 2 o'clock, Saturday afternoon. The burial took place at Beech Grove Cemetery.

Elizabeths formal obituary was located in The (Pomeroy, OH) Leader, Thursday March 4, 1909, front page, column 3:

 

ELIZABETH EWING CARSON

-------------------

Passes from Earthly Scenes to the Great Unknown.

-------------------

Elizabeth Ewing Carson was born in Columbiana county Oct, 17, 1839, and quietly breathed her last at the home of her daughter, Mrs. O.P. Blake, at St. Louis, last Friday morning, the immediate cause of her death being diabetes.

Mrs. Carson's mother died she was 14 years of age, and at that time her father moved to Meigs county. She attended school in this city and at the Albany Academy in Athens County, at the latter place meeting Ephraim Carson to whom she was married March 24, 1857. To them were born nine children all of whom survive except William, who died when six months old.

Capt. Carson organized a company of soldiers at the first call to arms in 1861, and he served his country continually throughout the war, serving on General Milroy's staff. As a result of exposure and hardship, he contracted bronchial trouble, which weakened his strong constitution and resulted in his death Oct. 29, 1880. Thus thrown on her own resources with a large family of children, the ensuing years were fraught with unusual care which would have overwhelmed one of less dauntless courage and devotion than Mrs. Carson.

Although reared a Presbyterian, Mrs. Carson was too broad-minded to be controlled by denominational lines, and while residing in Syracuse associated herself with the Methodist church. Her activities are well known there and in Kansas City where she lived during the last 25 years of her life.

The remains were brought here Sunday and Monday at 9am funeral services were held at the residence of Prof. T. W. Karr in Syracuse, conducted by Rev. Jewett, the body being laid to rest in Oak Grove cemetery by the side of her husband.

The children left to mourn by the death of this good woman are Mrs. T.W. Karr, Syracuse, W.S., Mexico City; C.E., Tampico, Mexico; G.R., Cherokee, Kansas; Mrs. O.P. Blake, St. Louis; Mrs. Ferdinand Plate, Chicago; Dwight, Bay City Michigan; Frank, Kansas City, MO.

Ewing and McClaren References (excerpts only)

 

Robert A. Ewing, farmer, postoffice McKee's Rocks, son of Daniel and Jane Ewing, was born 1856 on the farm where he now resides in Stowe Township. His grandfather, Moses Ewing, came from the east of the mountains (Allegheny Mountains) and settled in this county about 1794.
