WILLIAM EWING of HARFORD CO. MD (b ca 1755/6 d l825)
10 December, 1784 married ELIZABETH BILLINGSLEY in Harford Co. MD
Lived in Monongalia Co. VA/W.VA and Muskingum Co. OHIO
Harford Co. MD was established in 1773 from Baltimore Co. MD so that records of these two families were, necessarily, obtained from both counties. Untold hours have been spent on William Ewing's ancestors and descendants. Two descendants, Kathlyn G. Neumann and Gerald B. Ewing have searched for a very long time to find "from whence he came." Kathlyn has unearthed Billinglsley family history and has thoroughly documented information about the descendants of this couple. She has shared untold hours of research with me and has given me permission to include it with mine in the chronological listing of information below:
-1775, 9 September- the “signature” of William Ewing who is in the Company #7 of Captain John Taylor all of whom signed the pledge that “if furnished with a few arms ... promist to return said arms or full value thereof when this unhappy contest shall subside.” William was 10th person to sign out of 69 men. They are indicated as being from Lower Cross Roads which was in Susquehanna Hundred (township), Harford Co. MD. This is recorded in HISTORY OF HARFORD COUNTY, MD. by Walter W. Preston, 1972 page 112.
-1776, 15 August- is the date of the Census of Maryland, by Brumbaugh, Vol II Harford Co. Bush River Hundred and we found the following:
Alexander Ewing age 45 [born 1731]
Jane Ewing age 40 [born 1736]
Jos,, Ewing age 18 [Note 1783 Census, born 1758]
James Ewing age11 [born 1765]
John Ewing age10 [born 1766]
Jane Ewing, Jr age 5 [born 1771]
[NOTE MEF: It is believed that William Ewing is, also, a member of this family but is serving in the Militia.]
-1778, 1779 -William Ewing is shown on page 46 of a "List of Militia officers in the State of Maryland, 1778 & 1789 in Harford Co.” This is from the Original Hodges Manuscript in the D.A.R. Library and presented by the State Society to the Hall of Records (in Annapolis where I obtained it) in 1941. William is listed as an Ensign under Captain Thomas Hutchings; 1st Lieut. John Norris and 2nd Lieut. John Allen.
-1778, March Court - is the date of the Harford County, Oaths of Fidelity by Brumbaugh, Volume II Harford Co. p233 "taken before the worshipful James McComas, 16 Returns-1146 men. Recorded MD Historical Society A copy from a copy of the original. "The Hundreds or townships are not shown but neighbors are much the same as those of the 1776 Census. Some are with William Ewing on the 1775 Company and on the 1778/9 list of Militia. I believe we can, safely, place him in Bush River/Susquehanna Hundreds (Townships).
Chapter - XXXX 392
1783 - Tax List of Maryland Part I, Cecil, Talbot, Harford and Carroll Counties by Bettie Carothers shows:
Alexander Ewing-Susquehanna Hundred - 5 in family p l32 (maybe the same one shown in 1776 as township boundaries change)
Joseph Ewing-p 165 "single man" with Elizabeth Brice "Security"
William Ewing-p l65 "single man" with Sias Billingsley "Security"
(Billingsley becomes his father-in-law in 1784)
Alexander Ewing-Broad Creek Hundred - “0” in family p l47 (same list). He is NOT the above Alexander but an absentee owner and the Tract name is MAIDEN’S MOUNT 150 acres.
I traced MAIDEN’S MOUNT through Deeds in Baltimore Col MD Land Deeds, BL p322-324 (Listed in MD Hall of Records as Deed MdHR4915):“Jonathan West sold to Robert Sims and Robert Ewing of York Co, Province of Pensylvania , for and in consideration of ?145 currency to him in hand paid by said Sims and Ewing 152 acres called MAIDEN’S MOUNT lying and being in the Co. of Baltimore on Susquehanna River etc’. Robert West father of Jonathan West was one of the first to have surveyed to him a tract of land in the present 4th and 5th Districts of-now-Harford Co. MD. It contained 400 acres…
(From Our Harford Heritage , a History of Harford County, MD by C. Milton Wright, 1967 p36) and contained the following statement: "The well-known ford of the Susquehanna and later a Ferry were located at Bald Friar on Robert West's land at MAIDEN’S MOUNT."Alexander Ewing, son of Nathaniel Ewing, was born in 1741 and married Jane Patrick c1762. He died in 1799 leaving no will but his estate settlement (I have copies) indicated which children received property. He was "of Bald Friar's Ferry in Lancaster Co. PA. on the Conowingo Creek." His son, Nathaniel Ewing wrote his will in 1821 and bequeathed the land in Harford Co. MD. to his nephew Alexander Ewing Grubb. This was the part of MAIDEN'S MOUNT that had been inherited by Nathaniel. We have yet to find the sale by Robert Ewing (who lived in Fawn twp.York Co. Pa and was a son of Joshua Ewing and Jane Patton.) Robert's Fawn twp. land was sold by his brother Patrick Ewing to James Porter Ewing. Nathaniel’s Will is located in WB #A p36-38, 14 May 1821. We have never found how Alexander Ewing acquired the 150 acres of MAIDEN’S MOUNT but a good guess would be from Patrick Ewing, brother to Robert Ewing, cousins to Alexander.
1784, 10 December - Harford Co. Marriages: William Ewing was married to Elizabeth Billingsley (daughter of Sias Billingsley and Hannah (Webster) Billingsley.
1787, 2 September - Josiah Ewing was born to William and Elizabeth Ewing probably in Harford Co. MD (named for her father?)
c 1788 - Alexander Ewing born to William and Elizabeth Ewing probably in Harford Co. MD.(named for his father?)
1789, April - Sias Billingsley sold his Harford Co. MD land and moved to Monongalia Co. VA (now W.VA)
c l790 - Hannah Ewing born to William and Elizabeth Ewing probably in Harford Co. MD or, possibly, in Monongalia Co. VA (W VA).(named for her mother?).
Chapter - XXXX 393
1792 - Thrap Family (into which William Ewing later marries) moves from Baltimore Co. MD to Muskingum Co. Ohio
1793, 13 October Joseph Ewing married Mary Gorrell [Harford Co. Md marriages] daughter of Joseph and Mary Gorrell. [Joseph Gorrell died 3 June 1793, Joseph Ewing executor of estate]
1800, August Court [Mormon Roll #74123 filmed 1948, Harford Co. MD Estate Inventories], Inventory of James Bell who died prior to this date showed the following owed him money:
Alexander Ewing
James Gorrell
John Ewing
James Ewing
John Gorrell
Joseph Ewing
John Ewin
[We do not know of the significance except Alexander Ewing is still there. The Bald-Friar-Ferry Alexander died 1799.] This was located by Anne Kimball in 1992.
1804, 13 April [Monongalia Co. VA/W.VA. Estates Vol 6 p971. Inventory Robert Ewing Estate; wife, Margaret Ewing; Administrator Nathaniel Ewing. Appraisers John Gribble, James Clark, John Stafford. [“Peggy” Margaret Ewing daughter of Alexander Ewing b l741 d l799 married Robert Ewing in Cecil Co. MD. 23 March 1793. They had two children prior to the death of Robert. He was a son of Henry Ewing of East Nottingham Hundred Cecil Co. MD. whose land had been in Chester Co. PA until the Mason-Dixon line was laid. Henry Ewing was the son of John Ewing of East Nottingham twp Chester Co. PA. as of 1729 and died 1753. (See pl33 above.) It is important to mention this couple as they were, probably, neighbors of William and Elizabeth (Billingsley) Ewing. It has been suggested that William was a brother to Margaret. WM. brother to Margaret was not born until about 1768 as she was b1762 and was the eldest daughter. Two others in that family were, always, listed prior to William. So we do not know his definite date but can assume it, logically. That William, son of Alex d l799, was the only son "21" in 1799, and lived in Little Britain twp. Lancaster Co. PA. Nathaniel Ewing, Administrator for the Estate of Robert Ewing, wife, Peggy, was a brother to Peggy/Margaret. His age in 1799 was +14 and -21 so born between 1778 and 1784. It would be "neat and relieve much searching to say Margaret and WM. b ca 1756 were siblings, children of Alex b 1741 but it WON'T WORK for the father would have been only 15 when eldest child born].

To grandson Sias Ewing, Alexander Ewing and Hannah Hamilton sister to Sias and Alexander to have ¼ of my movable estate and the other ¾ goes to my beloved daughters Mary Webster, Margaret Morgan and Alexander Webster." [The EWING children are Elizabeth's and she is, obviously, dead. It may be that Alexander Ewing had remained in Monongalia but he did move to and die in Muskingum Co. O in 1820 at age 32.]

g. Mary Elizabeth Ewing born 6 April 1842 and died 12 June 1862.
[NOTE MEF: As Joseph Ewing married Mary Gorrell and as her only brother we found was Lawson Gorrell and as William and Elizabeth Russell Ewing named the second son Lawson, MAYBE it was for “Uncle Lawson Gorrell”, After “Jr*” came Joseph (for his father) and Charles(for his brother)and last “Mary”(for his mother),]

C. James Ewing b ca 1765 is the next child of Alexander and Jane Ewing in the 1776 Census of Bush River Lower Hundred. The first marriage of a James Ewing in Harford Co. Md. was on 14 April 1784 when a James Ewing married one Mary Kean. HE would have been only 19 years of age. Another James Ewing married Sarah Brownley on, 9 Oct 1805 in Harford Co. They had a daughter, Mary Ewing. James would have been 40 when he married Sarah Brownley. We have no proof of any of it. There are no sales of land to James Ewing. There are in Harford Co. MD. in 1790 Census two (2) men named James Ewing. In 1810 there are two, also. One is near Ruth Billingsley and the other is near Joseph Ewing and John Ewing all 3 of them are +45 indicating all were born prior to 1765.
