I'm sorry that I don't have info. on Alvah and/or Jane, but I saw that you're researching Bieder as well. I've been trying to track down info. on my own Bieder line, and hope that perhaps you can help me. My gggrandfather was John Bieder (from Switz.), married to Catherine Anne Buchan, their son was Edwin John Bieder who married Florence Lillian Lowe, from Eng. Do any of these names sound familliar? Thanks in advance, I hope and good luck on your research!
