In searching for my Morris Fowler family, I keep running into suggestions that the family originally came from Ireland or England, Thomas, b: c1731 &Susannah (Lake) Fowler had children; James, Bridget, MIchael, Morris, Thomas & John.I am hoping to connect this family thru son, Morris, b:1762, NY to his son Morris,b:1795, MA, m: Phebe Manter. Their children: Nancy, Similis, Alonzo & Morris, b: 1795.If this is the correct Morris, b: 1795, he m: Catherine Snyder in PA. Their children: Catherine, Lenore, Austin, William, George, Melissa, Similis and Drusilla.The recurrence of an unusual name like Similis makes me think this is a possible answer to my Fowler problems.
Morris & Catherine lived in Wood Co, OH.Late in their lives they sold their property there and went to Hennepin Co, Minnesota.If you have any information about this family, I'd love to hear from you.
