RE: Mary Funkhouser Ewing Hello Bev, I have a lot of information I got from a book put together by Freida Funkhouser Wilson. My father was Earl Frederick Funkhouser, his father was Preston Leroy Funkhouser, his father, John Calvin Funkhouser from Carmi, IL. I could run you a report from Family Tree Maker and send via email, if you are able to do the same and share with me. Find A Grave has been very helpful and we appreciate all the kind people who will transfer relatives and share information. Feel free to send me a personal email any time outside of Find A Grave if you prefer. I look forward to hearing from you.
Mary Louise Ewing Walker Hi there, I am searching for the father of my 3x great grandmother, Mary Louise Ewing Walker and I believe your James Ewing is him! She is likely the "daughter Mary Walker" listed in his will. The information I have for her says she was born in Wayne Co, IL in 1820 and then married her husband, John M Walker in 1839, and they lived and died in Rock Island Co, IL. She died in 1902 and her husband died in 1906.
Mary Walker's find a grave memorial number is: 76882750 John M. Walker's memorial number is: 76882601
I have just started researching this branch of my family and I will let you know what I find. Thank you for your notes about James.
