Steve, Just today I was looking for the sister of my great grandfather, Josephine Ewers, maiden name Center. I found her in the Mason City cemetery along with her husband, Edward T. Ewers. I was looking at a microfilm at the LDS center.....and I believe I saw a George in there as well, but did not write it down. Next time I go there, I will be happy to check it out. Also, I did write down Margaret C. Ewers who was the right age to be Edward's mother. She died 5-5-1914, at the age of 80. You should be able to get her death certificate from the state of Illinois. Possibly Edward and George are brothers????? Anyway, please contact me, as we may be able to help each other. I am primarily researching the CEnter and May families of Mason County, and my greatgrandfather, James Center was born in Mason City, and then moved to Kansas city MO abt. 1885. Where did your Ewers family end up?
