Ewing Family


In this series of articles, Margrett McCorkle provides information about her great-grandfather, William Marion Ewing (1871-1956). Her articles provide genealogical details about him, his ancestors and his descendants. In addition, and more importantly, her articles provide insights about his life and times -- and the life and times of his family -- via a variety of her personal memories and stories her 'Grand-dad Will' told her while she was 'sitting on his knee'.

Margrett McCorkle was born a Richardson but has always felt more to be a Ewing as she did not grow up with her Richardson ancestors but rather with her Ewing family. She has worked on her family genealogy since she was a teenager, but seriously pursued her ancestry only after she purchased her first computer in 1994. Art is her first love, and she has taught art on a private basis. In the past, she has been a home health-care worker, worked in the graphic arts field for several years (among other things, helping to develop the first printed Mylar circuit boards for KeyTronic Corp.), and worked at daycare centers focusing on disadvantaged-child education. She may be reached at Margrett42 at comcast dot net but be careful to use the two t's in her given name when trying to contact her.
