THE EWING FAMILY
"We live in the past by a knowledge of its history, and in the future by hope and anticipation. By ascending to an association with our ancestors; by contemplating their example and studying their character; by partaking their sentiments and imbibing their spirit; by accompanying them in their toils; by sympathizing in their sufferings and rejoicing in their successes and triumphs; we mingle our existence with theirs and seem to belong to their age." Daniel Webster
The list above contains my direct EWING line and the information contained in these pages is correct to the best of my knowledge. Certainly there is always chance for error and not all genealogical information is exact. My research into this area of my family's history is based in great part on the work of my late uncle, Vernon T. Ewing, and the sources which he accessed as well as the personal research he did. He compiled his research in a book published independently in 1985 entitled FROM WHENCE WE CAME--ANCESTORS AND DESCENDANTS OF GUSTAVUS H. EWING. I believe I am at the moment the only researcher to put this complete line of Ewings on the WWW. There are, however, many references to some of these Ewings in the research of others.
The Descendants of Gustavus Henry Ewing--6 generations, 256+ individuals
Most of the information contained in this study was compiled by and used with the permission of James R. McMichael. It is not yet complete, but the pages are being added as they are produced so that there will always be as much data here as possible. Follow the above link and be assured that eventually the available information concerning all of the descendants of Gustavus H. Ewing will be accessible on this site. Since Gustavus Ewing was among the 5th generation of our Ewings in America--the first being the immigrant Alexander Ewing--the generations of Gussie's descendants will be numbered accordingly.
For extensive data on the families of Robert Ewing in Ireland and the first four generations of the family in America, please visit the web site of James McMichael. You will find much-expanded information there on Robert, Alexander the Immigrant, Alexander Ewing of Nashville, John, and James Ewing:
Some Helpful Information on Interpreting Data in the Ewing Family Tree:
All individuals in the direct bloodline of the author will be preceded with "*". The mark "^" after an individual's name or other data will be used to designate material about which there will appear a note. In the typing of original documents, the grammar and spelling used by the author(s) of those documents have been maintained.

This work has been undertaken so that my son and his children and their children may look back and view their heritage, feel a sense of belonging with the past, and know partially at least from whence they came.
