On the same page, I see Stephen Ewer 27 and Nancy 22 and 2 children; Solomon Wing 28 and Sarah A 24 and 1 child.(In looking at other records, I believe the Wing family is related to the Comstock family also.)

By 1860 he’s in Waupan Fond du Lac and his son George Edward is living next door, and I see Solomon Wing 38 and Sarah A 36 and 3 children; also Stephen Ewer 37 and Nancy 33 and 5 children; also Ruth E (listed in the Comstock book) Ferris. [This was sure a stick together bunch]
