Thank you for answering. I found Silas a while back and did enough research to check for a connection. There were some similarities, but for some reason I decided the family was not the right one.
Ezra would have been 8 years old in 1850 and I have not been able to find him except for an 1850 Geauga County, Munson Township, census for Edwin Fowler. I had determined through a Geauga County history that Edwin supposedly had a child, bn 1842, and named Ezra. However on the census the 8 year old is listed as F. E. Fowler.
This census info was sent to me by a volunteer on the Ohio Census Lookup List and I am sure she read it correctly, but I sure would appreciate you looking at it and see if that "F" could possibly be an "E". I recently found that Ezra's middle name was "Elonzo".
Ezra enlisted for the Civil War in 1862 at either Painesville or Cleveland. So, there should be a census record for 1860, but he is not on the 1860 census with Edwin. On Edwin's history, there is info that Ezra's mother died when Ezra was 2 years old, making him an only child, with half siblings.
