In the "Emmet Township Pioneer" published by the MCGS is a listing of the Twitchell families, there was Joshua, Lorenzo, Jasper H., Ephriam and William. Does anyone know if these men were bothers? Willaim Twitchell b.1797 in VT m1. Annie Maria(nee unknown), their children were; Amanda, W.T. Jr., Osker/Auston, Almond, and Carter/Curtis. m2.(1852) to Eliza(Hutchison) Bowen, the widow of Robert Bowen of MO, their children were; Laura M. Bowen b. 1847 and Sarah E. Bowen b. 1848.

William died the following yearand is buried in Spring Creek Cem. in Emmet Twp. In 1864 Laura Bowen m. Hiram Sweeney. My great grandmother Sarah E. Bowen m. June 5, 1870 to Kinsey Cahill, her half sister Roseletha Twitchell m. 22 Oct. 1871 to Orren Ferguson, in 1873/4 these two families migrated to Marion Co., OR and raised families there. In Nov. 1880 Eva Maria Twitchell m. L.W. Guinn in Marion Co., OR. Does anyone know what happened to Eliza(Hutchison) Twitchell. Did she remarry?
