MaryJane and Caswell had two children: William Asbury Earp and Mary Elizabeth Earp. Mary Elizabeth died 1864 during the Civil War of influenza. MaryJane and George settled in Iowa where they had five children: Ori D. Ewing, Robert V. Ewing, Blanche Ewing, Hiawatha "Wathie" Ewing, and Hattie Ewing Cummings.
