Fowlers Of Onondaga

Moses Fowler Family - 1860 NY Onondaga Census

Onondaga's Centennial. Gleanings of a Century:

Fowler, Maxwell T., Onondaga, is the owner of a fine farm of 260 acres, devoted to general farming and dairying.  He is a son of Moses Fowler, a soldier in the war of 1812, who was at Sackett's Harbor. He received a grant of 160 acres of land for his services. His father was Thomas Fowler, one of three brothers who came from Scotland and settled in Dutchess Co. Thomas settled in this town when it was all wilderness, and built a log house, where he resided until his death at the age of 40. Moses Fowler was four years of age when he came to this town with his parents.

He married Elizabeth Pierce [perhaps the daughter of Elisha and Amelia Pierce], and they had four children, Maxwell T., Samantha C., Gideon D., who was a soldier in the late war (Co. G, 75th N.Y. Vols.), and died at Baton Rouge from illness contracted in the service; and Moses, who died Feb. 28, 1886.  Gideon D. died July 30, 1863.

 Moses Fowler, father of our subject, was born in 1793, and settled in this town in 1797, dying Jan. 10, 1868. His wife, Elizabeth, was born March 3, 1801, in Brattleboro, Vt., and died Dec. 7, 1872.
