CHILDREN of *ROBERT EWING and *UNKNOWN SPOUSE
Before traveling to Ireland with his parents, William and Eliza Milford Ewing, Robert, if indeed he was born as many believe in Scotland, may have worked near Old Loch Lomond among the Glasgow Clan. No records have been found to determine the name of Robert's wife, although she was most likely a local Irish girl from the Londonderry area where this Ewing family settled. There were possibly other children born to Robert Ewing; however these two daughters and one son are the ones about whom records exist. Baptismal records from the Burt congregation near Londonderry show that Margaret and Elizabeth were baptized in 1678, while Alexander was baptized in 1679 or 1680, leading to the supposition that the daughters were older than the son. Alexander was my fifth great-grandfather, and he among Robert's children was the one to venture forth with several Ewing cousins to America.
