Henry D. Ewalt (son of Henry) and his wife 
Ketturah Stamps (daughter of William Stamps 
and Jane Shore) moved with their 13 children, 
to Monticello, Lewis Co., MO about 1840, where 
he died soon after.  They were prosperous 
there, and had 6 sons who were soldiers in the 
Confederate Army during the Civil War.  
Two died in battles.  

Their 10th son, Noah Spears Ewalt, was my 
great-grandfather.  He came to a community called 
Sowers in Dallas Co., Texas, where he met and 
married Mary Jane Johnson (daughter of William 
Johnson and Nancy, and the granddaughter of 
Harris Johnson).  Noah died before their last son 
was born in 1878.  Mary Jane died in 1889.  
My grandmother, Lucinda Catherine (Kate) Ewalt 
and her twin sister, Jane Stamps Ewalt, were 
born on Feb. 17, 1877, were 18 months old when 
Noah died.  Their oldest brother, Noah S. Ewalt, Jr., 
a teenager at the time of his father's death, 
never married, but raised all his younger brothers 
and sisters.  He managed the homesteard of almost 
1000 acres, which is now in Irving, near DFW Airport.
