EWING C. C. was born in White Co. Illinois, November 25. 1818. His father, John Ewing, was born in Eastern Tennessee, in 1784. In 1804, he volunteered in the Indian campaign, and served during the war of 1812, and traveled over the greater part of the territory of Illinois. In the latter part of May, 1830, he came to the southern part of Tazewell County, then extending nearly to the present village of Lawndale, Logan County. He settled near this place, where he remained until his death, in 1845. He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and was one of the best men in Logan County. His brother, Reuben B. was for many years County Judge of Logan County. The subject of this sketch was 12 years old when he came with his parents to this county. His mother’s name was Elizabeth Dillard. She was born in North Carolina, but removed with her parents to Tennessee where she was married. There were five children in the family, viz: Osborn and James, now living in Kansas, Christopher C. still on the old homestead, Sidney, in Iowa, and William, in Kansas. Mr. Ewing remained with his parents, working on the farm, until his majority. He helped very much to bring the home farm to its present state of cultivation. In 1838, he was elected a Captain of Militia, Thomas R. Skinner being Colonel of the regiment. He served his company faithfully several years. In April, 1842, he was married to Margaret Ann Williams. Two years later he was elected justice of the peace, which office he retained four years. In May, 1849, he lost his wife by death. She left two children, twins: Zachary T. and Catharine. The former is married and living in this county. The latter married S. E. Fergus and resides here. On October 17, 1849, Mr. Ewing was married to Adaline Metcalf. The children are, Anna, now Mrs. George Judd, and living in Missouri; Reuben C. living in Logan County; and George M., Francis M., Emma, Maggie, Ella and Freddie, at home. Mrs. Ewing died Oct. 22,1877. In November after Mr. Ewing’s second marriage, he was elected Associate Justice of the County Court. He retained this office four years, when he retired strictly to private life and to agricultural pursuits, which he says: ” I found ample for all my talents, and which, when properly pursued, I think, the most healthy, most independent, and most lucrative of all employments.” His recollections of the early days of Logan County are most vivid. They are well expressed in letters to the secretary of the Old Settler’s Association, and form an important part in the early history elsewhere given in this volume.
