Hello Sherron. I would love to straighten all this information about Timothy Ewen.Sarah Ewen (nee Starnes) made a pension application 27 June 1839. It is recored as Pens.R.3416 which clearly states that Julius Ewen was the father of this Timothy. It states that widow says that husband enlisted in NJ or NY.This application is held for "furthur proof and specification".It is later rejected or suspended. Sarah would have 68 and Timothy would have been dead for more than a decade. There is recorded a 3rd Battalion, NJ Volunteers at Savannah, GA starting 1779 with a Timothy Ewing, Corporal, and a Jules Ewing, private.They are repeatedly listed until 24 Feb 1783.This was a Royalist Company fighting for the British Army during the War.Why Sarah would not know this and realized she was applying to the wrong government is still a puzzle to me.There is another Timothy Ewing listed "Surgeon" 3 June 1776, when the Continental Congress called for militia to reinforce the army at New YorkHe remains active from Cumberland Co., NJ till 26 Nov 1777.There is also a third Thomas Ewing listed as quarter master under Col. Isaac Preston's regiment of militia.They do not appear to have applied for a pension.So the Timothy you have buried in IN, was a Royalist.
