In case you don't know there is a Tower family website. It's address is: http://www.towergenealogy.com/Page_1x.htm. Also my understanding is that all the Towers in America are decended from John Tower who immigrated to Hingham Mass. in 1637 who was born in Hingham Co. Norfolk in 1609. He was married to Margaret Ibrook. My mother's name is Margaret Ibrook Tower. She was born in Detroit, Michigan. My Tower family moved to Goodison, Michigan in the mid-19th century after spnding some time in upstate New York (Oneida, County). I do have a book entitled "Early Days in Hingham" and I have a history of tyhe First Parish ofg Hingham published in the 1880's. It shows the original seating plan of the church. - Philip Ferguson
