Phoebe Ewing1

b. 1822, d. 18 June 1876
     Phoebe Ewing was born in 1822 at Huntington Twp., Gallia Co., OH.1 She was the daughter of James Ewing and Mary McMillin.1 Phoebe Ewing married Elisha Matthews on 19 November 1837.1 Phoebe Ewing died on 18 June 1876.1

After their marriage, the newlyweds settled near his father in Cheshire Township. Elisha was head of the household there in the 1840 census. They had five children by 1846, when plans were being made to journey westward, to Illinois. Counted in on the 1846 departure were Phoebe and Elisha, his brother Aaron, who had married Lydia ROUSH, and several of the Aleshire family.

The group settled first in Fulton County, Illinois, but by 1849 they were in Hancock County, Phoebe and Elisha in LaCrosse, Fountain Green Township. Aaron took up 160 acres in Pilot Grove Township, the southeast quarter of Section 10, where the Aleshires also eventually settled. Before long Elisha moved his family to Pontoosuc Township, Illinois, where he was listed in the 1860 census as a farmer worth $2,200/$700.

But Elisha was a very industrious and enterprising fellow and about 1861 he began operating a stage coach line between Macomb, next door in McDonough County, and Quincy, down in Adams County, and he moved his family into Carthage, Illinois, the county seat. In the 1870 census that is where the family was listed, Elisha a railroad teamster worth $1,400/$500. Part of his job on the stage coach line was to carry the mail and he is down in Hancock County history as one of the first mail carriers out of Carthage.

At the time Elisha settled in Carthage, Illinois, he bought a lot on which was located the old Hancock County court house. In 1921 that lot was still in the possession of his son, Addison.

The only story that has come down about Phoebe was told by her youngest son, George, to his daughter, Lillian MATTHEWS LLOYD, of Virginia Beach, Virginia. This event took place during the Civil War. Not much is told of Southern sympathizers in Illinois, especially in Carthage, but George tell otherwise.

It seems that Phoebe and Elisha had taken a young orphan lad who subsequently joined the Union Army. Home on furlough, the youth met on the street a "leading citizen" of the town, and offered his hand in greeting. Instead of shaking it, the man, whose sympathies lay with the Southerners, spat into it. The lad returned the insult with a blow to the man's face. He then fled, knowing the man would surely seek revenge. The man organized a posse to locate the boy, who had ridden off to hide. His horse finally gave out and he took to the brush. There was gun-play and the boy killed one of the posse. They were out to get him sure, then.

Eventually he was shot and killed. The posse celebrated by getting drunk. They brought the body back to town and put it on display at the town courthouse.

Phoebe heard about it and went to the courthouse, little George accompanying her. She found the boy's body stretched out on a plank between two chairs. When she attempted to wash the body, she was derided by the drunken men. But she persisted and when she was finished she placed a wreath on the body which she had made and brought with her.

The men knocked the wreath off and said they were going to bury him like a fence post - head down and feet up. She placed the wreath on him again, and again they knocked it off.

It was then Phoebe showed what stuff she was made of. She picked up the wreath, placed it on the body, turned to face the men and, taking hold of her scissors which hung on a string from her waist, said, "If you knock it off again, I will stick these scissors into the man who does it and open them up wide before taking them out again!"

The wreath remained.

Unfortunately Lillian could not remember the conclusion of the story her father had told, that is, just what the outcome of the burial was - whether Phoebe's foster son got a decent burial, or the one the men had planned.

Phoebe had 10 children, five daughters and five sons, one of whom died early in life. She was not very old herself, only 54 years old, when she died.

In the 1880 census, the widower Elisha was living in Carthage, Illinois, only the youngest, son George, still at home.

Elisha died shortly after that census, when he was 67 years old. He is buried at Barnes Cemetery outside Carthage, south of Moss Ridge Cemetery. It is assumed Phoebe is buried with Elisha at Barnes Cemetery, Carthage, Illinois.

Calvary Morris Holcombe1

b. 1838
     A representative in the U.S. House of Representatives from Athens County, Ohio from 1837 to 1843, must have had a special meaning to Ira and Esther. He was Calvary MORRIS and that is what they named their first son who was born in 1838 - Calvary Morris Holcomb.

It is not surprising that he went by his middle name - His name appears differently in so many records. Morris with a G. inserted ahead of the Morris later. Galvey, Calvey and in one place even Cavalry.

In 1860, when the family was still all together, Calvary was at home and listed in the census as a printer, 22. Right after that census was taken, his father died, and that put Calvary in as male head of the family. When the war started in 1861, he was one of the first to sign up - his brother John too. They enlisted for three years at Vinton on 12 August 1861, in good old Company B, 36th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, under Captain Henry Adney.

At the time Calvary was 5 feet 6 1/2 inches tall, dark complexion and hair, with brown eyes. Calvary became a corporal within a very short time. Less than five months after enlistment, Calvary was gone. Typhoid, age 24 years. The 36th was at Summerville, West Virginia, then, which is where government records have him buried. However, there is a stone in his name at Glenn Cemetery, Vinton, Ohio - Indian John's resting place. It could be there in his memory, or perhaps his body was later returned to his home.

John Holcombe1

b. 1840, d. 23 April 1893 or 25 May 1893
     John Holcombe was born in 1840 at Vinton, Gallia Co., OH.1 He was the son of Dr. Ira Holcombe and Esther M. Ewing.1 John Holcombe died on 23 April 1893 or 25 May 1893 at OR.

John and Calvary enlisted together when the war started. John was taller than his brother, 5 feet 7 inches, dark in hair, eyes and complexion. The two went down on 12 August 1861 to the Captain's tent on High Street, the main street, in Vinton, Ohio to enlist for three years in Company B, 36th Ohio Volunteer Infantry.

John also became a corporal somewhere in his military career. He had served most of his three years when he was discharged at Gallatin, Tennessee on the 25 January 1864 on a surgeon's certificate of disability for secondary syphilis.

But 3 1/2 months later, on 2 May 1864, John enlisted again, this time as a private in Company A of the 140th Ohio Volunteer Infantry. He served until 3 September 1864, when he was discharged at Gallipolis.

John went back to Vinton, but when his mother opted for Hancock County, Ilinois, he went too. He was found there in the 1870 census, in Pilot Grove Township, a farm laborer with the William HAMRICK family in Section 21, along with his brother William.

The next 30 years of John's life are but shadows. Apparently about 1879, he, and at least brothers, Hiram, and Niles, went out to Oregon to try their luck. It was after their mother's death in 1878 and before 1880. John may have married and had 10 youngsters in that time. The next we know for sure is when he returns to Ohio in 1890. On 2 July 1890 he was a resident of Jackson, Ohio, when he made an attempt to get an increase in his Civil War pension. The word many veterans had then was that if you went back to the scene of the original enlistment, more attention was apt to be paid. John went all the way from Baker County, Oregon to Jackson County, Ohio to see if it would work.

It just so happened that the physician and member of the Pension Board in Jackson was his cousin, Dr. Gilbert Alexander EWING, who wrote the Pension Bureau in Washington D.C., "I have had no personal knowledge of the applicant during the past 25 years."

At that time another cousin, Bradford F. HOLCOMB, was treasurer of the Jackson Pension Board. Bradford was the only one of John's uncle Robert Burgess HOLCOMB's children (half uncle really), to leave New York in favor of Ohio.

On 6 February 1891 John's address was the National Military Home in Dayton, Montgomery County, Ohio. He was discharged from there on 29 March 1892 and returned to Oregon.

John died 23 April 1893, according to government records, or 25 May 1893, according to cemetery records. He is buried in the Masonic Cemetery in Baker County, and the GAR Post No. 20 planted a flag at his grave.
