   General Notes:

George and Hannah Boyle had eleven children. One of them was named Marquis de LaFayette, after the French soldier who helped Washington train his troops at Valley Forge. George died at Rome, Indiana, in 1850, leaving numerous descendants. Among the Thomas Ewing papers in the Division of Manuscripts in the Congressional Library are letters from George Ewing giving family news. In Jane Hunter Ewing's letters to brother Thomas in 1827 and 29, she says that George lived about 15 miles from the Latimers in Perry Co., Indiana.

Census records for Perry Co. IN for 1830,p. 620,Tobin Twp. shows the following household for George Ewing, Jr.: [I've added the names/a ges.] 1 Male 50-60 George, Jr. [age 51] 2 Males 15-20 Nathaniel [age 19] and James V. [age 17] 1 Male under 5 Thomas George [age 3] 1 Female 40-50 Hannah [age 41] 1 Female 20-30 Anna M. [age 20] 3 Females 5-10 Rachel [age 10]; Abigail [age 8]; Hannah M. [age 5]
[Lafayette was b. in 1830 evidently after census ta ken]
[Nancy b.1826 [age 4] should appear as female under age 5]

The book, GEORGE EWING, GENTLEMAN, A SOLDIER OF VALLEY FORGE, pub. 19 28, p. 77 states that there were 11 children in George, Jr. and Hannah Ewing's family. Only nine are known at this time.

The George Ewing, Jr. family appears on the Perry Co. 1840 census, p . 392.

Records for Washington Co. OH for 1800 and 1803 show George Ewing, Jr . in Ames Twp.; also listed in these records are George, Jr.'s brother, Thomas, and their father, George, Sr. The 1810 Athens Co.OH shows George, Jr. and the 1816 Athens Co. OH tax list shows both George Jr. and Sr. It is not known where George, Jr. was for the 1820 census ; however, his parents were in Perry Co. IN at the time of the 1820 census (page 149). George, Jr. evidently was in Perry Co. IN in 1820 because his father, George, Sr.'s, Revolutionary War pension application (dated 21 Sept. 1820) indicates that George, Sr. and his wife were living on property belonging to their son, George, Jr.

George Ewing, Jr. died intestate. Nathaniel Ewing was appointed executor for the estate and Nathaniel's sureties were Alexander McCollum and Nicholas Vaughn, both believed to be brothers-in-law to Nathaniel.

DAR applications #112009 (Mabel C. Jones Pettingill) and #123599 (Daisy Jones Elwell) list brothers and sisters of George, Jr.

Excerpt from writings of Sen. Thomas Ewing from Ohio in HISTORY OF ATHENS COUNTY, OHIO By Charles M. Walker, 1869, refers to Thomas' brother George [Jr.] who was 11 years older than Thomas.
