William S Tuers

William S Tuers was a night watchman for the Customs Service and was murdered on Feb. 10, 1860 in Manhattan, NY, leaving a wife and 7 children. This was documented in the New York Times of Feb 11, 13 and 14, 1860. The murder took place on State Street in New York. He was 46 at the time of death giving him a birth date of 1814. The accounts in the New York Times are interesting, but provide few clues as to his parents. The crime was never solved. William was married to Elizabeth Winters Davis, implying that her mother's maiden name may have been Winters. Ed DiThomas, a ggrandson, holds several family heirlooms, one of which is a jug containing the name William Tuers Oct 28, 1791 on one side and Margaret on the other. We believe this is commemorates their wedding. Any assistance is welcome.
