Surnames: Couts, Byers
Looking for information on Michael Couts who is found in the
1870 census in Washington Co., PA. He is listed with his
wife Susannah (surname unknown) and the following children:
Rachel, Sarah, Andrew, Elisabeth, Nancy, William, Thomas,
Clark, Lorena Bell, and John. I believe Lorena Bell b.1865
to be the wife of Edward Stephen Byers. Edward married a
Lorena Bell Couts in January 1899 and lived in Allegheny Co., PA
Does anyone have any further information on this family?

New email address!

I have tried to contact you via email with no results. I have confirmed that we are related to the same Michael Couts. I have tons of information for you, and I'm anxious to exchange data. Michael was my Great great great grandfather. Clark's daughter, Katie, was my Great grandmother. I have Clark's death cert and my 89-year-old grandmother has confirmed the information you posted. Please contact me as soon as possible. robericv@earthlink.net

Surnames: Couts, Coutz, Coutch, Flowers
We think that she is Susannah or Susan Flowers, daughter of Moses and Nancy:
1850, Franklin Twp., Greene Co., PA
154 155
Moses Flowers, 65, laborer, PA
Nancy, 60, PA
Michael Coutch, 26, laborer, PA (note that there was an Elizabeth Flowers, Age 84,living with Peter and Anne (Martha Anne) Coutz in the 1860 census of Greene Co., PA, Springhill Twp.)
Susan Coutch, 24, PA
Rachel A. Coutch, 6, PA
Levina C. Coutch, 3, PA
We're trying to find more info on Moses Flowers and the Elizabeth Flowers whose daughter Martha Anne evidently married Peter Coutz, who might be related to Michael Couts/Coutz/Coutch.
Michael Coutch, or Couts, is found in later records of Washington County. In the 1860 census for Millsboro, Washington, PA there is a Michael Couts with wife Nancy and daus. Rachel and Sarah and younger children. In 1870 the family is in Amwell, Washington, Pennsylvania. A Michael Couts is found in Morgan, Greene, in the 1800 Census. Perhaps this Michael is a descendant. He has 2 males under 10, 2 males 26-44, 1 female under 10, 1 female 16-25. The following is Howard Leckey's account of this family: "Michael Koutz (Kouz, Kauz, Kautz, etc. sp.) was one of the German settlers on the dividing ridge between what is now Washington and Greene County, he living on the Greene County side. His will, made January 21, 1823, was probated at Waynesburg, January 27, 1823. He died January 21, 1823, and is buried in the Lutheran Cemetery near Marianna ... Children of Michael and Mary Koutz were John; Peter (a blind man); Daniel (never married); Elizabeth; Barbara, m. Daniel Smith; Mary (never married); Jacob; George; Michael, Jr., d. Nov. 4, 1819, aged 19 years, 2 months, buried with his father. (Tenmile Country, p. 75-76)
