Surnames: Ewing
I am looking for any Ewing's in Lousiana. My grandfather used to tell stories about visiting his Ewing relatives in LA during the 1940's and 50's when he was in the Army. I am trying to find some type of connection to the Ewing's of PA and would appreciate any help. My grandfather was
Col. Howard Fleming Ewing-nicknames were "Nick" when he was a young man and "Joe" after he entered the Army. He was born in 1914. His grandfather was George W. Ewing born in 1855-I have not found his parents, siblings, etc.
Thank you so much for any assistance-

There used to be a Coca-cola bottling plant in Thibodeaux, LA. I'm not sure how long it's been there or even if it's still open. You might try checking around that area...Good Luck!!!!

There was/is a coca cola plant in Monroe, La. -- My Mother was Ewing (in North LA.) Her father was Nathan Ewing from Jonesboro, LA (originally from Chatham, LA). you might see if that rings any bells with anyone in your family.

Hello.
I am of Ewing decent from St. Mary and Vermillion Parishes in Louisiana. My Great grandfather's name was George Ewing. Agues Ewing was one of his son's that is the father of my mother. I am also searching for my Ewing roots and have only gotten as far as George Ewing born in 1898. I hope we can help each other. I will attach a 1940 Census that I have found in my search.

It's been many years since I posted the first one about Louisiana:) I have my Ewing's back to 1825 in Pennsylvania, however, have still not found that elusive connection with Louisiana. ELLinSpain listed my family out in her post. George Washington Ewing born in 1855 was the son of John Ewing b 1825 and Margaret Maloney b 1825. They had 10 children and all are either in Pennsylvania or Ohio.
Howard Fleming Ewing was the grandson of George Washington Ewing and my grandfather. He was based in Texas in the Army and told stories about stopping in (I thought) Shreveport at the Coca Cola plant. Could have been the newspaper and I am not remembering correctly. Has anyone traced the Ewing's of that area out and/or back and found a connection with any Ewing families from Pennsylvania? Many thanks for all of the recent replies! Nikki
