The third son of William and Eleanor Ewing was James. He served in the War of 1812 under "Mad" Anthony Wayne. He lived to the ripe age of eighty-four years. James Henry Ewing, the writer's father, relates that he was teaching school near Mahoning, Indiana County, at the time of his great-uncle James' death. This was in 1851. In 1795 he married Mary Horn. They had two children, John and Mary.
