Trying to find descenants of Alvah Ewers and Jane Geddes who married in Detroit in 1829.

Jane Ewers, daughter of Alvah and Jane, married William Parkinson. I don't yet know the names of their children.

William Ewers, son of Alvah and Jane, married Adelaid Pasco, and they lived in Springwells Township of Wayne County. According to my information, their children were named Grace, Sarah, Elbert, Belle, Henry, William, and Robert. Per my information, Grace married John Wooly, Sarah married Eline Holman, Belle married a man named Bieder, and Robert married Josephine Komgeal.

Per my information, the children of Robert and Josephine Ewers were named Edward, Eva, Agnes, Edna, Marcella, and Josephine. Marcella married William Balhorn. Eva married Dwight Howell and had children named Iris, Marcella, and Marlon Howell.

I would particularly like to find out where Alvah and Jane Ewers are buried, but any info about them and their descendants would be appreciated. I have lots of info to share about the ancestors of Alvah Ewers.

I'm sorry that I don't have info. on Alvah and/or Jane, but I saw that you're researching Bieder as well. I've been trying to track down info. on my own Bieder line, and hope that perhaps you can help me. My gggrandfather was John Bieder (from Switz.), married to Catherine Anne Buchan, their son was Edwin John Bieder who married Florence Lillian Lowe, from Eng. Do any of these names sound familliar? Thanks in advance, I hope and good luck on your research!

My grandfather named Alvah Parkinson is the son of Charles Parkinson who is the son of William Parkinson & Jane Ewers the daughter of Alvah Ewers and that answears where my grandfathers "Alvah" name maybe came from as I cant find out who William Parkinson parents were.

Thanks! Since posting my questions back in 2002 I was contacted by descendants of Alvah who kindly provided photos of the gravestones and other family info. I've added quite a bit of this info on Alvah and his descendants in my Stanfield Family Tree on ancestry.com
