I am tracing the parents of SARAH MASON, born in Wayne Co., NY in 1827. Her parents were Erastus B. MASON and Mary WELLS. From her obituary in Lenawee County Michigan, she was born in Wayne Co. and moved to Michigan when three years of age. From census records in Michigan she was the oldest child. She married Ruel ROUNDS in 1845. He lived only three years following the marriage. They had one child, George Washington Rounds.

Can anyone tell me the best source in Wayne Co., to find information on her parents? I do have a listing for the 1830 NY census MASON names, counties and townships but as yet been unable to find much info. Names listed for Wayne County MASONS are:Amos, Barnard, Benjamin, Harvey, Jesse, Jonathan, Luke, Robert, and Samuel. I am not sure the family would have been in this census as it may have been the year they left for Michigan.

Any help in the right direction would be appreciated.
