INTRODUCTION

"The compiler of this record is Marjory McEwen Gerold, generation 5, and the information contained is the result of a cooperative venture. About 10 years ago my sister-in-law, Dorothy, and my brother, Tom McEwen, began a collection of family information from various branches of the family. Dorothy began to put together a McEwen history with the information sent to her. In 1978, following the annual family reunion, I began to look at what she was doing. I read the early histories which were in the reunion records, looked at the pictures and read the letters. It was probably the early histories written by Great Aunt Sarah Henry and Grandmother Ida Egbert that really sparked my interest in genealogical research. In the beginning my interest was in going back into tie with my research while Tom and Dorothy continued to accumulate descendant information. As time went on and I accumulated information in both directions and I could not bridge the gap between Scotland and America ( a goal not given up) I discovered that the job Dorothy was attempting was almost too big to ever be accomplished. I had to attempt to get part of it into print and naturally the descendants of our own grandparents seemed to be the most likely starting place. This is what this book is about."
