Can anyone help me with information about Joseph HEWITT, the husband of Phoebe PRICKETT of Woodland, Barry Co., MI? I know very little about them. Joseph and Phoebe had at least 3 children:

Phoebe was a sister of my husband's ancestor, Maria PRICKETT. The PRICKETTS were born in Binsey, Oxford, England. Some of them came to America, others stayed in England.
I'm not sure when Phoebe emigrated, but Maria is said to have come to America about 1840. She settled for a time in Wayne Co., MI, and been a maid for Lewis CASS's household.
If anyone knows anything about these people, I'd really appreciate hearing from you.
