Orville Ewing (died October 10, 1876), aged 70 years, son of Nathan and Sarah Ewing. He had a successful career as a merchant. He amassed a large property in South Nashville, around “Mile End” in the area where he lived. After the Civil War, in 1866, he sold this
property with the proviso to buyers that on every lot “a neat brick cottage should be erected.” The neighborhood became one of the most attractive in the city. He died in Gainesville, Florida. His remains were brought back to Nashville. Pastor Fall preached his funeral at City Cemetery: “You all know Orville Ewing. You know his life. You know his character. These shall be his eulogy.”
