A Captain John D. Ewing died on 16 Aug 1839 per a very blurry print in the Bellefontaine Gazette 24 Aug 1839. This is a year after John Smith Ewing died in Logan County and before the date of the application for administration by Deborah John's widow dated October 23, 1839

A theory, which is as yet completely researched, is that there is a connection to a John Hoge Ewing who was a noted name in Pennsylvania born in 1796. It is noteable that a Solomon Hoge was security for Deborah Ewing's guardianship application. Solomon was born 13 Mar 1803 in Greene, Pennsylvania. His father was Solomon Hoge whose father was William Hoge and whose mother was Esther Ewing of Pennsylvania. Since Deborah's parents were practicing Quakers, it is unlikely that she would marry outside of the faith or family connections within a year of moving to Ohio.
John H. Ewing, of this family, came to Washington College at the beginning of the college year in 1810, and made his home with his father’s friend, Hon. John Hoge, after whom he had been named. There was no relationship between them, but Mr. Hoge and Mr. William Ewing had been surveyors together in early days,
Thomas Antrim was a Quaker and a first settler of Logan County and sister Prudence Antrim born 1768 in NJ married Edward Ewing in 1789. Some internet records show a John Wesley Ewing being born in 1814 and others beyond this date to this couple. It appears this child is in fact John Wesley Cooper whose mother is Ann Ewing, daughter of Edward and Prudence. It also appears that this must be a mistake since Pr udence would then be over fifty years old. Edward Ewing and Prudence and possible son John could have come to Logan Ohio with Prudence's brother Thomas in 1806. Note Edward and Prudence Ewing are shown in Butler County Ohio in 1820, 1830 and 1840. Prudence is reported to have died in 1853 in Clinton Ohio
Note that the 1880 census showing Daughter Elizabeth with Jabez Blair says father was born in OH mother NJ likely an error

Married name: Cooper, born 3 Oct 1790, died 28 Mar 1836, 45 years
