Matthew Wing is my 11th great grandfather, born in England in about 1549. His son John Wing never made it to America because he died too young. But his daughter-in-law, Deborah Bachiler, widow of John Wing, did come to America with her father and her four sons.
I found a website called the Wing Family of America. They have a house/museum in Massachusetts, and a website with information about the Wing Family ancestry. They have a book on their online gift shop which is a family tree of the first five generations of the Wing Family in America. I found some information there, and will use it to find more info, hopefully even original records! I encourage you to check it out. What a great find with lots of information about an important ancestor.
I hope to travel to Massachusetts for the Mayflower 400th Anniversary; if I do, I hope to visit the Wing Fort House while I’m there.
The Wing ancestry leads to Smith and then Reed, and is ancestors on my mother’s side.
