   General Notes:

Ewing entered the military service of the Confederacy. In a letter written by James Jermyn, in 1864, reads the following:

"In line of Battle near Marietta Georgia, June 9, 1864. "Dear Wife, We are well fed and clothed though dirty as we have had a great deal of rain in this quarter and lying on the ground and in entrenchments with our knapsacks at Atlanta we are not able to keep ourselves clean. General Sherman has attacked our flanks several times but has been driven back every time with heavy loss to him and our losses slight. When there will be a general engagement no one can tell though we all feel like we will whip them when it does come. Ewing Brown died at Selma on the 16th May last. You must break this news to Aunt Abby as best you can. I know it will go hard with the old lady."

Ewing S. Brown appears on the Perry Co. IN land records, along with his mother Abigail Ewing (Brown). The book, GEORGE EWING, GENTLEMAN , A SOLDIER AT VALLEY FORGE, p. 77-78 provides Ewing Brown's death date. He died while serving in the Confederate army. Ewing and his mother moved to near Biloxi, MS about 1840. Ewing never married.
