Since John Ewers is a common name in my family lineage, I am curious to know when your grandfather was born. Do you have any more info that you can pass on about him? What was his wife's full name (maiden name?)? Is he still living? If not, when did he pass on?
The original last name of my family from England was Ewer. I have traced back to a Thomas Ewer (born in 1593 and died in 1638 in England). He had a son, Thomas Ewer, that was born Feb. 6, 1633, in Strood (parish),Medbury, England. The son died in 1667 in Barnstable,Barnstable,Massachusetts, United States of America.
You may not get this message. You've waited a long time. I hope to hear back from you though.
