     Sarah Ewing was born on 21 April 1783 at Greenbrier Co., VA (now WVA).1 She was the daughter of Capt. John Ewing and Ann Smith. Sarah Ewing married General Samuel Robert Holcombe, son of Zephaniah Holcombe and Tryphenia Niles, on 16 January 1802 at Greenbrier Co., VA.

Sarah EWING HOLCOMB obituary, Gallipolis, Ohio, Gallipolis Journal, 10 October, 1850. OBITUARY:

Departed this life Sept. 26th 1850, Mrs. Sarah HOLCOMB, consort of Gen. Samuel R. HOLCOMB, in the 68th year of her age. The deceased was born in the State of Virginia, April 21st, 1783. Being thrown into existence at the close of our Revolutionary struggle, and nurtured in childhood under the influence of the severer habits of those earlier days, she was prepared, mentally and physically, for those arduous labors and responsible duties which she sustained in such a remarkable manner. At 18 years of age, (1801) her parents emigrated to this county, settled in Huntington township, then a wilderness, --Soon after she became a wife, and at length the mother of a numerous family.

Her untiring assiduities were put in requisition to train up her children in habits of industry, economy, virtue and piety, to usefulness and respectability, and if any of them fail to attain those excellencies, it will not be for lack of maternal precept of example. Her distinguishing traits of characteristics were firmness of decision, promptitude in action and untiring perseverance, in the execution of her designs. Her labors were not confined to her own family; for many years she ministered to the relief of suffering mothers in those scenes of trial and distress which peculiarly demand the aid of the wise, skillful and prudent. But amid all the assiduities of this life, her immortal interests were not forgotten or neglected. She had been a member of the Presbyterian church for a number of years before her death, and died in heavenly hope of immortal blessedness. But the longest life soon hastens to its close --the day of her departure has come. Her last sickness was long and painful. For months the hopes and fears of her friends alternated, as her symptoms became more or less favorable --but from the first, she had a settled conviction that she should not recover. Her funeral was attended on Friday, 27th, by a numerous congregation. --The services were performed by Rev. H. R. HOWE. The text for the occasion was Mark 14: 6, "She hath done what she could." All her surviving children enjoyed the painful pleasure of following her mortal remains to the place appointed for all the living.

Her labors done, securely laid
To this, her last retreat,
Unheeded o'er her silent dust
The storms of life shall beat.
