Ewbank-Smith Site

The namesakes for the website were two families that immigrated to Dearborn County, Indiana in the early 1800s:

In the years after arriving in Indiana from Yorkshire County, England, three children from each family would marry.

To complete the title two Ewbank sisters married two Hall brothers who were their first cousins as well as their husbands.

Also included are members of your host's and his wife's family. Some of the names included are Bartlett, Richmond, Lincoln and numerous others. Visit cousin Thomas Rogers, one of the original Pilgrims of 1620, or perhaps the 16th President of the United States, cousin Abraham Lincoln. See the thirty most common surnames on the website here. To see all the different surnames found on the website click here. Click on the topics in the sidebar and visit for awhile. There are numerous documents, photos of people, headstones and places. For example, there are several views of the still-occupied Ewbank Homestead.
