Ewing in Early America
Margaret Ewing Fife (ed. James R. McMichael)

From the Author, Margaret Ewing Fife:

"This Manuscript is a Work or Study whereby I present a few early EWING out of all those who have not, heretofore, been documented. I also present changes to some Genealogies already in print which are indicated by additional findings. ... My PURPOSE, then, is to present all these people in the hope that additions, corrections, and discussions will bring us all closer together no matter who our EWING ancestor."

From the Editor, James R. McMichael:

"[Margaret's] book ... was [originally] published in 1995. The task that Margaret undertook to separate many of the early Ewing families was almost an impossible [one]. She had researched the Ewing families for many years.  ...

When I first corresponded with [her] about helping ... with the revision of her book, I anticipated putting the information into my word processor and doing some minor editing. Of course marking the copy for indexing would be a major part of the work that I would do. However, based on the circumstances, I have added some new information. Also, some corrections have been made to correct information that was in the original book."
