Looking for any information concerning the parents, siblings, of Almira Elvira Sawyer, born 30 June 1812 in New York (probably Jefferson County), died 12 September 1891 in Hancock County, Ohio. She married Giles Westcott on 11 January 1831 in Hounsfield, Jefferson County, New York.

Giles was born 13 December 1805 in Hounsfield, a son of Caleb and Eunice Nelson Westcott. He died 7 August 1891 in Hancock County, Ohio.

Shortly after their marriage, Giles and Almira moved to Cuyahoga County, Ohio, and then to Hancock County, Ohio. They had seven known children:

Mary Matilda Westcott born 1831
Eunice Charlotte Westcott born 1833
Augusta Sylvina Westcott born 1836
Nelson Spicer Westcott born 1839 (my husband's ancestor)
Eliza Jane Westcott born 1846
Alvira Malissa Westcott born 1848
Levi Nathan Westcott born 1852

I know who the children married, etc. but perhaps a list of their names will help identify the Sawyer family to which Almira belongs. Thank you for any help.
