Towner Family Genealogy Forum
I am descended from Elijah Towner and Mary Knapp of Danbury CT. They married 17 December 1778. Elijah was son of Abraham, son of Phineas, son of John, son of Richard who was first in America by 1686. Elijah served in Rev. War and is buried in Bradford Co., PA. His son, Elijah, Jr married Phebe Hicks and they moved to Vigo Co., IN around 1820. Both are buried there. I know of four of their children who went to IL. Richard, Olive, and Eliza were in Champaign Co., IL and Benjamin H. was in Vermilion Co., IL. Olive and Eliza married brothers, Moses and John Harvey. I am descended from the daughter of Moses and Olive. Her name was Celia Harvey. She was my g-grandmother.
I would like to correspond with anyone interested in this line.
