George William Ewing

George William Ewing is Past Chair and Chancellor of the Ewing Family Association and sixth great-grandson of John of Carnashannagh - is a native of Muncie, Indiana, and has been a resident of Battle Creek, Michigan, since 1963. Now retired, he and his wife Marilyn spend the winter months in Boca Raton, Florida.


Joseph Neff Ewing, Jr.

Joe Ewing is descended from Nathaniel Ewing (c 1693-1748), who was born in Ulster and emigrated to Cecil County, Maryland in about 1725. Joe’s ancestors moved to Uniontown in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, after a one-generation stopover in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and then back East to the Philadelphia area, where Joe still lives. After serving on active duty in the United States Marine Corps in two separate hitches totalling 3 ½ years and graduating from Princeton University and the University of Pennsylvania Law School, he practiced law in Philadelphia and its suburbs until he retired in 1995 at the age of 70.

Joe and his wife Peggy have been married about 61 years and have three daughters and seven grandchildren. Both have been extremely busy in their genealogical work. In addition to the Ewing line, both their families have extensive connections to early Pilgrim and Puritan families in Massachusetts; Joe’s Neff line came from Switzerland; and he also has a Swedish ancestor who came into the Chesapeake Bay area in 1642.

Joe has been active in the Ewing Family Association since its inception as Clan Ewing in America and has attended all the family gatherings except the first. He was its first Board Chairman 1993-1998 and then served as Chancellor until 2004.


Margaret Ewing Fife (1917-2002)



Rev. Ellsworth Samuel Ewing (1908-1995)

Rev. Ellsworth Samuel Ewing was the founder of the Ewing Family Association (originally known as Clan Ewing in America) and served as its Chancellor from 1993-1995. Prior to the incorporation of the organization in 1993, Ellsworth traveled around the country meeting with Ewings interested in genealogy, often staying in their homes and gradually building an informal network of folks who shared an interest in Ewing genealogy and family history.
