The original of the photo of Adelia added to this memorial was handed down through the family of Adelia's youngest son, Ervin Roscoe Ewers.

Adelia Harford was the granddaughter of Charles Harford, a native of England, and one of the first settlers of Rochester, New York.

Adelia's parents were William Harford and Parmelia Kniffin, who were married in Rochester, New York on December 21, 1824. The Harfords were living in Washtenaw County of the Michigan Territory by the time of the 1830 US census. They lived for a time in a village named Harford, platted by Adelia's uncle Charles Harford and his wife Sophronia Bestor. The Village of Harford was located at the cross roads now called Lima Center, in Lima Township, Washtenaw County. The Ewers family Bible indicates that Adelia was born in Lima.

Adelia was married on February 23, 1853 to Peter Rose in Stockbridge, Ingham Co. They had a daughter named Adella "Adell" Rose, born November 29, 1857. Adella Rose married Eli Rood, and they are buried near Joseph C. and Adelia Ewers in this cemetery.

Peter Rose passed away before 1860. Adelia married Joseph Crocker Ewers January 12, 1863, in Livingston County, Michigan. Witnesses to their marriage were Adelia's brother Theodore D. W. Harford and wife Eliza. Children born to Joseph C. and Adelia Ewers were: Annetta "Nettie", married David Carl; Edwin Freeman, married Ella Shaw; Eva, married Charles Shaw; Ervin Roscoe, married Agnes Heeney.

The following is from the "Ingham County Democrat", Thursday, June 21, 1894:

"Bunkerhill Center

Mrs. C. Ewers, another one of our old pioneers, departed this life last Friday."
