Milton, son of Frank and Rebecca Ewing, was born in Muskingum county, Ohio, October 30, 1848. He was reared in his native county, and received his education in the schools of Zanesville, Ohio. When nineteen years of age he accompanied his parents in their removal to Missouri, settling at Gallatin in 1867. He early evinced a decided interest in and preference for the law, and in 1868 began legal studies in the office of Judge R. L. Dodge, of Gallatin, continuing with Judge Dodge one year, then entered the office of Judge Samuel A. Richardson, with whom he studied until admitted to the bar in 1870. Mr. Ewing has since practiced his profession in Gallatin, and has not only earned a high place among the best practitioners at the Daviess county bar, but stands deservedly high in the esteem of the citizens of Gallatin and Daviess county. He has held the position of city attorney and city clerk of Gallatin several terms, and is now most accept-ably filling the latter position.

On the 20th of February, 1872, Mr. Ewing was united in marriage to Miss Hattie, daughter of Rev. J. H. Brundige, of Gallatin. Mrs. Ewing is a zealous member of the Presbyterian church, of Gallatin. Mr. Ewing is a member of Gallatin Lodge No. 106, A. F. & A. M., and of Gallatin Chapter No. 11, R. A. M.
