Re: William Ira Sawyer of Decatur
Hello, I am not overly familiar with the Sawyers but William Ira's mother was Virginia Gulick, neice of my ancestor Levi Gulick. His father William L. Sawyer was the son of John Sawyer Sr.b.1811 (PA) d.1893, from his first marriage to Elizabeth kettering.( before he married Harriet Miler Gulick) Harriet Miler was my 3X great Grandmother and her children from her marriage to John Sawyer would be cousins. My great Grandfather lived in Harriets home known as the Sawyer house after she married John Sawyer. I don't have knowledge of William Ira's descendants tho. I will take a look at my resources. If you go to Rootsweb.com you will find a couple family trees listing the John W. Sawyer family in World connect.(that is if you haven't done it already) William Ira is mentioned in more than one. The Decatur Genealogical Society, www.rootsweb.com/~ildecgs/, were a great help in my search. I have corresponded with at least one Sawyer descendant. Before 1999, I didn't know any of this. If I can I will help. Good luck!
