Re: Bauer/Bower - 1830-1850 NY connections!
Have recently found information through a family heirloom quilt of a Bauer/Bower family members maybe related to "Macey" that later moved or lived in Wayne County Indiana around 1850-1880's.Lateral related family lines are Robinson, Erwin, Yeo, Schutte /Shutte.
Names identified were Priscilla Bower, 1829, Peter Bower, 1829, Mary Bower 1849 and 1 other name barely discernable also dated 1849 sewn onto fabric.
Robinsons came from William Penn'scolony in Pennsylvania toDelaware in 1800, moving to Wayne County in 1828.Yeos came to Indiana about the same time frame of 1820-1830's from Ohio. Erwins also came from NJ, DE, IN area.
