David and Lucy (Wager) Bower/Bowers from Canada to Michigan to Kansas to Colorado

Posted: 1531682247000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Bower/Bowers, Wager
Looking for descendants/information for the following Bower Family:

david born NY 1827 died 1913 in Colorado; married Lucy Wager 1850 in Sheffield, Ontario Canada
Lucy Wager born 1834 in Ontario Canada; died 1916 Colorado

david and Lucy, along with their children are listed in the 1871 Canada, Ontario, District Lennox, Subdistrict Richmond, District 63, Division 2

Q1 - trying to find marriage certificate
Q2 - trying to find immigration papers (various dates of immigration range from 1859 to 1872) I do know that their children George (1851), Peter (1853), Henry (1855) and James (1866) were born in canada as i found their baptismal certificates (which were from Sheffield for Peter and Henry and in Selby for James). Cannot confirm that of Marshal (1857), William (1857), or Irene (1870) - other than the 1871 census says that they were.

their children:
George W Bower born 1851 Canada; died 1919 Illinois (not sure of this) married Sarah Abernathy Hornbeck 1891 in Illinois Have their family information but would like clarification of his death. 1920 census showed his wife as widowed but have not found his gravesite.

Peter Shafer Bower born 1853 Canada, died 1921 in Michigan married Orpha Sofia Dennis have their family information, but if someone is from this line that would be great.

Henry Wager Bower born 1855 Canada; died 1935 in Nevada THIS IS MY LINE

Marshall Bower born 1857 Canada - no nothing more about him

William Bower born 1863 either Canada or Michigan; married Gertrude (Limberg Webb?) 1907 most likely Colorado. Their daughter Lodoska born 1908 in Colorado. I found them in 1910 census San Miguel County Colorado.
They show up in 1920 census, Portland, Multnomah county Oregon (not sure if it is the same people, but the dates/names match)
1930 census Newport, Lincoln County - only William and says he is widowed.
Gertrude died in 1929. They are both buried in Newport, Oregon - IF this is the same people. Lost track of their daughter Lodoska

James R Bower born 1866 Canada - listed in 1900 census Norton Kansas with his parents David and Lucy - said he was an invalid. In the 1905 census Wallace Kansas only David and Lucy are listed. Have not found his death date nor gravesite.

Irene Bower born 1870 Canada - this is all I know about her. She is not listed in any future census records, so either she died young or she married.

Edith Bower born 1977 Michigan; died 1969 Kansas; married Frederick wurst 1895. have information on their family, but if someone is from this line that would be great
