My Great grandfather was Bruce Higgens Erwin the son of Mrs Susan Erwin. Who is my Great-Great-Grandmother. I do have some info on Bruce Erwins siblings such as: (Fredrick Paul) Mrs. Ethel M.Erwin Elliot, Ben H. Erwin (Never Married), Marvin and(Marian Erwin) Schroeder, Mrs. Cora Erwin Willday.

Here is a little insite on Susan and William A Erwin

W.A Erwin married a Amanda Lockwood on July 21 1966 she passed away on April 18 1874 at which he married Susan Lo (nee) Higgens on Sept 21 1875 between the 2 marriages I believe ther were 14 children. William A Erwin died on Oct. 19 1916 age 73 years 6 mo and 20 days.

However I am still looking for more on Susan L (Nee) Higgins Erwin and more info on Howard R.E Erwin and(Ruth Lee), Wibur Erwin and (Frances Hoffman), Allen Erwin and (Augusta Kratochurill) and I am not sure where Amanda Mills Who died Jan 3 1956 fits in. Any Information would be helpful and as I am also looking forward to hearing from those who are family...
