      Sarah Ewell Packer History by Mary L. Packer Norden


      Mar 10, 20010
      Recently a book came to my attention that includes information on Dabney and Pleasant. Unfortunately a skeleton in the closet, but every family has one, and this one has popped up.
      The web link is:
      http://books.google.com/books?id=9oi2AAAAIAAJ&pg=PA480&dq=Sarah+Ewell&as_brr=1&cd=2#v=onepage&q=Sarah%20Ewell&f=false <http://books.google.com/books?id=9oi2AAAAIAAJ&pg=PA480&dq=Sarah+Ewell&as_brr=1&cd=2>
      When the appeal took place is a good question to which I tried to find the answer. The appeal appears to have been Mar 1834, but the date of the original trial convicting Dabney is not stated. And of course, the transcript for the original trial would most likely state dates of the subsequently convicted crime. From the appeal transcript, it appears that Dabney had already served some time prior to this appeal. I went back and searched for any information on the original trial but found nothing. It appears that the reason the appeal made the historical books is because it overturned the original convection on the technicality that no birth certificates could be found thus resulting in the overturning of the convicted case of "incest."
      The bit of search that I did on Pleasant Ewell's daughter, Sarah, would have placed her at 16 and 19 years of age when the incest noted in Dabney's original conviction occurred. By 1830, Pleasant and his family (including Sarah, then approx. 16 yoa) had arrived in Bedford County, Tennessee. That would place Dabney's original conviction between 1830 and 1833, and the appeal that was sought at the Tennessee Supreme Court level in 1834, while Dabney was serving his sentence and after Pleasant had moved his family to Missouri . It appears that Pleasant, shortly after the Dabney's original conviction, moved his [Pleasant's] family to Missouri, where daughter, Sarah, married and had a child.
      Sarah, Pleasant's daughter, not being my ancestor, I have not dedicated extensive research to her history, but the little bit to which I was exposure, tells the very sad and short story of young Sarah, marrying in Missouri, having her baby, and dying just a few short years later in 1839, at the very young age of only 25 years and a brief 27 days prior to the death of her own mother. In the transcript, "Journey to Zion", written by Sarah's younger sister, Barbara Ann Ewell Evans, Barbara states: "My mother and sister [Sarah Ewell Packer] were very sick when we left, and they both died shortly after our arrival in Illinois, 2 and in the course of a ... " In the book, "Studies in Mormon History, 1830-1997: An Indexed Bibliography", by James B. Allen, Ronald J. Walker, and David Whittaker, on page 641, reference is further made to Barbara Ann Ewell Evans.
