Biography

Baptized Ezekiel Fuston name changed to Fewston

Mr. Ezekiel French Fewston, aged 91 years, 10 months and 21 days, died at the home of Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Alexander in this city Sunday evening at 5 o'clock of senility. Mr Fewston was born in Virginia on March 1st, 1814. When he was a little over two years old his parents moved to this county and settled on Lower Beaver Creek, where he lived until about 40 years ago, when he moved to this city. Before moving here he had engaged in farming and distilling. After coming here he opened a tavern as he always called it and a blacksmith shop: in this way he accumulated considerable money and property. In his early manhood he was married to Miss Malissie Owens [sarah Malissa OWENS], who was a sister of Mrs. Mira Frost of this city. They were never blessed with any children. Mrs. Fewston died in August 1895, and was buried in Bethesda. "During the Civil War he moved to Stanford and lived and then to Jamestown where he lived a year; after the war he returned to this city and again opened his tavern. Twenty years ago he gave up tavern keeping and contracted with Mr. and Mrs. Thomas J. Alexander to keep himself and wife during the remainder of their life, and faithfully have they kept their trust and fulfilled their obligation to the letter. For the past twelve months he has been as helpless as a babe. He died without a struggle or quiver of the muscles, he simply went to sleep. He has no relatives here, one nephew lives in this State and another in Tennessee. His remains were interred beside his wife at Bethesda Monday evening.

The June 3rd, 1897 edition of the Monticello News, says, "E. F. Fewston purchased the old G. W. Ingram lot on the comer of the square of Dr. H. A. Phillips for Mrs. Jane Alexander." J. A. Phillips editor, H .S. Douglass, publisher.
