As of this writing, 22 July. 2009 there is still not allot known about William Ewing. In the 1860 census of Carroll Co., Carrollton Township. is listed as follows... W.H. Ewing 32 tenant, Rebecca J. Ewing 17, and Jacob N. Silvers 17 (?) Laborer are listed as a household immediately followed by Rebecca Silvers 48, David Silvers 10, Mary J. Silvers 8, Cassa Ewing 78, W.H. Silvers 5. All are listed as born in INDIANA except W.H. Silvers who is listed as born in South Carolina. The Juxtaposition of Jacob and Cassa is interesting. The 1850 census lists James M. Silvers (35) as head of the household along with Rebecca 37, James 12, George 9, David 6/12. James was a farmer born in OH and the others were born in INDIANA. James estate was valued at $600. Cassa was listed as head of a household in the INDIANA 1850 index of census records; however she did not appear on the microfilm (of Carrollton Township as stated in the index ). This appears to be a microfilming error. It is plausible that Rebecca Silvers was an older sister or aunt of W.H. and Cassa his mother or grandmother.
