Mary Tower (b.1813 NY) & Robert Patterson Morrison

I am looking for the parentage & ancestry of Mary Tower, born 1813 in New York. She married my 3rd great grandfather's (Wilson) brother, Robert Patterson Morrison in 1831. They lived in Forestville/Hanover, Chautauqua County, NY. They moved to Minnesota in 1855 and Robert died on the journey. Mary and the children continued and opened a hotel so to speak, actually a cabin, in Rosemount, MN and later built a proper hotel. Wilson had given Robert his land grant and helped him build 2 cabins on the property to move his family into when they arrived from NY.

The family name Tower has been passed down to several male children. Their first son was named John Tower Morrison so I think she is a descendant of John Tower.

Is she listed in any of the Tower Geneology Society data?

Thank you.
Katherine Levesque
