Ewer Family Genealogy Forum
I have quite a bit of information regarding Reuel (or Rewel or Ruel) Ewer, just not who his parents were or siblings. He married Ellen Wamsley in Cassville, WI 8-31-1851. On the 1860 census he was listed as a miner. Cassville, Grant County, was considered a large lead mining region. He & Ellen had 4 daughters (Mary: b. 1853, but died young we think; Angelina: b. 1855, m. a Richard Williams & lived in Boonesboro, IA; Clara: b. 1857, m. Omar Harford & lived in Nebraska; Rosalie: b. 1859, m. Joseph Clayton & lived in Buffalo County, Nebr.). He and Ellen had one son (Abraham Lincoln Ewer: b. 1861, m. Elizabeth Tollefson & lived in Buffalo County, Neb.)
Ellen married Sam Higgins after Reuel died and they moved with children to Nebraska to homestead but apparently lived a little while in Iowa before going to Nebraska. I have more information and would be glad to send you what I have if you want to contact me.
I would be extremely interested in what you have on Reuben Euer. A number of us have tried to get beyond Reuel Ewer with no success. The 'born in 1830 in Pennsylvania' is merely information handed down through the generations. We have thought that maybe Ruel's real name may be different than what we have. We have more information on Ellen's family and origins (England; her father, Charles, was apparently the youngest son of an earl there), than we do on Ruel.
