Harry Wilson Hamilton
Lt. Robert McChesney
Hi Brian,
My name is Harry Hamilton and I live in Rockbridge County, VA. A 2nd gr grandfather of mine is Alexander Gallatin McChesney; his brother was Lt. Robert McChesney from Brownsburg, VA who was killed 29 June 1861 near Hannahsville, WV and brought back to St. George,WV to be buried in Senator Ewin's family cemetery. Here is a link to The History of Tucker County,WV that mentions this:

I have seen his grave marker at New Providence Presbyterian Church, Rockbridge County, VA, but now I wonder if he isn't really still buried near William Ewin?
Could you tell me if there is a marker for him and also give me directions to get to the Ewin Family Cemetery from St. George please?

Wm. Ewin(g) & family
I would love to compare notes with you!

My g-grandmother was Mary Jane Ewin(g) (B. 31 Aug 1840-d. 1922), the eldest daughter of William Ewin(g) and Martha Ann Dennis. She married Job Ward Parsons (b. 13 March 1838, d. 31 Mar 1919). My grandfather was Dickson Ward Parsons, her youngest son. My father was Harold Ewing (note the "g") Parsons, second son. I was born Lucretia Ann Parsons (27 Nov 1940), now calling myself Lucretia Parsons Lee.

I am, as you may gather, interested in the "g". It appears from the grave records that William's son, Lewis Cass called himself Ewing (with the "g"), while the other members of the family went with Ewin (no "g")--the photo of William's grave shows Ewin. I've checked a number of census records which show Ewin, Ewing, and Erwin. Confusing!

There is a tradition in the family for using maiden names as middle names: Job WARD Parsons, Dickson Ward Parsons (where Dickson was the maiden name of his g-grandmother, and my father, Harold EWING Parsons. I have to think that his grandmother, Mary Jane, would surely have corrected it if his name was improperly spelled.

Another point that arises from census scrutiny, that William and Martha Ann (or "Ann" as she was sometimes called) had more children than are indicated in the grave records:

The 1860 census shows him, age 51, as a lawyer and farmer, in Dist 2 Tucker Co, St. George P.O. with:
Wife Martha A, 46
Daugh Mary J., 19
Daugh Angelica, 17 (Angelica Ewin Adams (1843-1905)
Daugh Martha A, 15
Son Thomas J., 10
Son Francis, 8 (This may be in error. "Findagrave" finds a daughter Frances E. Ewin Phillips, b. 8 Je 1852, d. 12 Feb 1899, buried in the Ewin family graveyard in/near St. George, buried alongside Martha Ann Dennis Ewin and William Ewin (b 18 Oct 1808, d. 24 Nov 1886)
Son Lewis C. 5 (Lewis Cass Ewing (with a G) 1854-1939)

I hope to hear from you,
