OBITUARY OF SAMUEL EWING: ?The Randolph Register,Friday, Jan 23, 1885 Obituary

Died at Ninety Seven - Samuel Ewing, a Respected and Worthy Citizen, Passes Away Samuel Ewing, an old and worthy citizen of Randolph, died at the residence of his son-in-law, Nicholas Angle, Wednesday morning at half past twelve o'clock at the age of ninety-seven years and about three months. Squire Ewing, as everyone called him, was born in the state of New Jersey, and was the son of a Baptist minister. In early life he was apprenticed to a carriage manufacturer and after serving his time moved to the city of Rochester when it was but a small village.

After remaining in Rochester a short time he moved to Ontario county, and for a time filled the highest offices in the gift of the people of his town. About fifty-five years ago, Mr. Ewing left Ontario county with his wife and a young family of children and came to Randolph, where he purchased a tract of land about three miles south of the village, built a log house and made his home in what was then a wilderness of giant pines and hemlocks. In a few years he subdued a portion of the forest, built a good house and found himself in possession of a excellent farm.

Esquire Ewing, notwithstanding he was deprived of even a common school education in early life, by dint of great exertions and blessed by nature with intellectual powers far above the average of his fellow men, became one of the most prominent scientists in Western New York. On account of his learning and ability he was appointed superintendent of public schools, an office which he filled with honor to himself and blessings to the rising generation with whom he came in contact. Aside from his ability and learning, Mr. Ewing possessed a quality which would do honor to the citizens of Randolph, and of every other portion of the world, to emulate. He was emphatically an honest man. Cheating, deception and fraud found no favor with him. If all were like Samuel Ewing, preachers and lawyers might "hang their harps upon the willows" and retire to private life. On the subject of religion Mr. Ewing was an honest sceptic. Notwithstanding in early life he was educated in Christian doctrine, his extensive knowledge of geology and other sciences caused him to reject the religion of his fathers and look to nature as the man of his council. "The world was his country; to do good his religion."

Notwithstanding Mr. Ewing found himself exposed to the aggression of many Christian people, no man could be more tolerant for the opinions of others. The extent of his information, the noble simplicity of his character, and now that his vast erudition is extinct in the tomb, with those that know him best his memory will never die.

In 1837 a select school was taught at Randolph, in the old Methodist meeting-house, by Damon Coates, which bore an excellent reputation in the village and surrounding towns, and was well patronized. Calvin Kingsley, afterwards a bishop in the Methodist Church, continued the school after Mr. Coates had left. In 1841, John Fosdick was the teacher, and was assisted by SAMUEL EWING JR., at present a citizen of the village. Other principals followed for short periods, among the number being Margaret Van Rensselaer and Mary Broadhead; but a short time before the Randolph Academy was established the school was discontinued .
