  • Notes 
    • Birth: Estimated from known birth dates of siblings and order mentioned in their father's will.

      Marr: Monongalia Co. West VA Marr. records; Ref. Ken Floyd notes

      Death: Tombstone, near Beech Grove in Wilson Chapel, Hoodoo Cemetery, reads: "Sacred to the
      Memory of David Ewell Who died April the 9th, 1846." Ref. Ken Floyd

      Ken Floyd estimates from 1830 census records that David could have as many as 12 children by 1825.


      I had picked up the name “Drucilla Lucinda Shuttleworth” from the Ewell Family Historical & Genealogical Society. However, information recently received from the DAR indicates that (1) Lucinda ___ and (2) Drucilla Shuttleworth are two different women. Can anyone comment on this? Looks like more research needs to be done regarding marriages of David Ewell.
