I am quite sure the Samuel Lawver you speak of is my great grandfather. He moved to Wi from ohio. I know he had several children. They did settle in WI, MI, Neb. Samuel Lawvers fathers name was Jacob. Going back in years Jacobs father was Jacob Lauver The last name spelling is changed, Also The last name spelling went back to Lauber when they came to the states from Ireland. They were in Pa then later ohio.
