I tried an email direct to you, but no response. Maybe you didn’t get it. I am an Ewalt descendant and have always been curious about the DUNKLEY name carried by one. While your connection sounds very interesting, it seems unlikely. Fairly extensive research has been conducted by Ewalt descendants and published in the "Our Ewalt Heritage" series Vols I & II (volume III is in preparation) corrdinated by Lenora Brakke. This series reflects the following: John Ewalt, Sr., born in Palatine on the Rhine, Germany in 1707, emigrated to America in 1756 with his wife, Sarah, born in 1726, and two brothers, Richard and Henry. They brought four children with them, all born in Germany: Samuel, born 1750; Mary; Henry, born 1754; and Rebecca. They settled on a farm about two miles east of Bedford, then in Cumberland County. There five more children were born: Esther, 1759; John, 1760; Anna; Sarah; and Richard, 1772. Son, Henry married Elizabeth Frye Keller in 1782 and had a son, Henry D. Ewalt (I don’t know what the D. stood for). Henry D. Ewalt married Keturrah Stamps in 1820 in Bourbon Co. KY and they had a son, Henry Dunkley Ewalt. The Stamps and Frye lines are fairly well documented and nowhere in these lines does a "Dunkley" appear. Your John Ewalt-Sarah Dunkley is very interesting, but there are too many dates that don’t match. It appears to be one of those bits that will remain a mystery – at least for a while.
