CLAN EWING GOES COAST TO COAST IN 2015
Clan Ewing will achieve another major milestone in 2015 by appearing at the Scottish Highland and Games at Pleasanton, California on September 5th and 6th. The Alameda County Fairgrounds, about 20 miles south of San Francisco, is the site of the Games, which is celebrating its 150th year. It is the largest and longest continuously-running Scottish festival in the US, and in some years, the largest in the world. See the article by Larry E. Ewing on page 3 for more details.
DEADLINE FOR NOVEMBER JOURNAL
As this summer races by, Denise and I are already focusing our attention on the November Journal. If you have articles, photos, or any other historical or genealogical contribution to share, please email or send it to us no later than September 15th, so that we can meet our publishing deadline.
SECOND INSTALMENT – AMY HUNTER EWING (PATTERSON) ARTICLE
If many of you enjoyed part one of Bruce Frobes’ article about his ancestor, Amy Hunter Ewing (Patterson) as much as I did, I think you will be just as interested in part two coming in the November Journal. I must admit, Bruce had me hooked at the mention of Benjamin Franklin! Of course, it didn’t hurt that Amy and her husband, Robert, also “hobnobbed” with the likes of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and other prominent early Americans.
