EWEN, Mary Cecilia, actress, born in New York City in 1836; died there, 10 November 1866. Her maiden name was Taylor. She made her first public appearance, at ten years of age, at a concert given in New York, and sang a scene from "Der Freischutz." Shortly afterward she appeared in the chorus of "Amilie" at the National theatre. Her special forte was light comedy, and she became so great a favorite that she was familiarly known as "Our Mary." Among her greatest successes in the various theatres where she played were "Life in New York," "Child of the Regiment," and " Pride of the Market." She married, 11 November 1852, W. Ogilvie Ewen, and retired from the stage.
