I have recently (ie. tonight) discovered that my ancestor Philinda French was originally Philinda Ewer, daughter of Thomas and Lucy (Cook) Ewer. I am descendant of Celia (sometimes called Acelia) French Hopkins, daughter of Philinda and Benjamin French, of the Dexter, Washtenaw County, Michigan area and I have a bit of information and a picture or two (I believe, I'll have to find it again) of Celia. If anyone is interested let me know. I would also like to know if there are any definitive (or just good) genealogies of the Ewer's and French's published? Thanks again for the great information on the web folks!
