The Y-DNA Project of the Ewing Family Association welcomes your questions and comments: dna@ewingfamilyassociation.org.

The purpose of the Ewing Genealogy Documentation (EGD) Project is to collect, analyze, validate and disseminate documentation regarding the lives of our Ewing ancestors, to foster discussion and cooperation among Ewing genealogists, and to promote a high standard of excellence in Ewing genealogical research.

The EGD is managed by the EGD Committee, formerly chaired by the late William E. Riddle. Queries regarding the EGD Project or its content can be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Goals

  • Collect, organize and make accessible to all Ewing researchers as broad a range of documentary sources as possible.
  • Collect, validate and post on the Association's web site well-documented genealogies of the first five generations of descendants from each of the currently known Ewing Immigrants to America. These genealogies will collectively be known as the Ewing Genealogy.
  • Create a forum and a focus for discussion and cooperation among Ewing genealogists.

Ewing Genealogy

The Ewing Genealogy currently includes family group and descendant information (for at least five generations) for the following individuals:

  • John Ewing (1648-1745) of Carnashannagh (maintained by Wallace K. Ewing, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
  • James Ewing (c1655-?) of Inch (developed by William E. Riddle)

Contributions

The Ewing Genealogy is and will continue to be a work in progress. It will be updated regularly as new information and documentation is received. The EGD Committee is seeking volunteers to assume responsibility for preparing five-plus-generation genealogies for each of the Ewing immigrant lines as well as other Ewing lines.

The committee will evaluate all contributions for quality and the completeness of supporting evidence. Potential contributions passing the scrutiny of the committee will be added to the Ewing Genealogy. 

In addition, we seek:

  • Association members who are willing to serve on the EGD Committee.
  • Individuals willing to donate primary source documents to our collection. (What will happen to your document collection when you pass away?)
  • Genealogists willing to prepare completely documented genealogies for submission to the EGD Committee.
  • Individuals willing to enter genealogies and documentation submitted by others into the Ewing Genealogy database.
  • Individuals willing to transcribe documents for posting on the Ewing Family Association web site.
  • Authors of Ewing genealogy books who are willing to donate or will their copyrights to the Association, as was, for example, done by Margaret Ewing Fife.
  • Comments, corrections and contributions to the genealogies included in the Ewing Genealogy  Documentation.
  • Special gifts of funds dedicated to research projects that the EGD Committee may organize.
Links are provided when information is available for at least the first four generations of the immigrant's descendants in America.

About a dozen Ewings settled southwestern Pennsylvania in the early 1770s. They established homesteads in what are today Allegheny, Fayette and Washington Counties. Ewing trappers and traders may have "worked" this region prior to and during the French and Indian War (1755-1762). Squire James Ewing (1733-1825), his brother Moses (1725/26-1798/1814) and at least one cousin (Samuel Ewing, 1750/51-1805) settled the Allegheny County area in the early-1770s. Descendants of these settlers eventually moved north to what are today known as Beaver and Armstrong Counties. Other, related Ewings followed these settlers to the area. Yet other, possibly-related Ewings concurrently settled Fayette and Washington Counties.

This activity was initiated by the late William E. Riddle.

Ewing Settlers

A primary intent of this activity is to create a collection of Articles that provide genealogical information about the Ewings who settled southwestern Pennsylvania and sociological information about their lives and lifestyles. In addition, the intent is to develop and find Other Information about the southwestern Pennsylvania Ewing settlers.
