Looking for parents of Ira Sawyer who married Salome Bird on 6 Oct 1834, in Whiteford, Michigan. Salome Bird daughter of Rowland Bird and Lydia Ford. She was born in New York 15 Jun 1816, probably in Palmyra, Ontario County, New York. Rowland and Lydia were married in Plainfield, Hampshire County, Massachusetts but had moved to Palmyra by 1820. The Bird's were living in Macedon, Wayne County, New York in 1830 (Wayne was formed from Ontario and other counties. They moved to Michigan by 1834, maybe as early as 1832.

There is a Samuel Sawyer living in Macedon in 1830 with a male the right age to be Ira Sawyer. Does anyone know about this Sawyer's family? There is also a James Sawyer in Wayne County, New York in 1830.
