  • Notes 
    • "She is probably the same Mary Ewing who married, about 1770, Alexander Handley (1737/40- 1781) of Botetourt County. Alexander served as a Captain in the Revolution and is said to have died as a prisoner of war. His will was probated in 1782 and named his wife Mary and her brother William Ewing as executors. Mary is thought to have gone to Washington County, Kentucky, about 1788 along with other Handleys, and may have remarried, in 1790, Colonel Benjamin Gibbs (~1752-_?_) of Nelson County."
