Silas and Mary Ann (Gordon) Townsend

I have been searching for the family of Silas Townsend (3 Apr 1820; Delaware) and his wife Mary Ann Gordon (10 Nov 1824; Maryland).  Silas and Mary Ann were married on 20 Jan 1845 in Cecil Co., Maryland.  The census records show their children as Amos Evans (1847-1922), James T. (1848-?), Margaret (1851-?), Clara Jane (1857-?), Ann E. (abt 1859-?), and Ida G. (abt 1862-?).  This family is listed in the 1860 Census in Cecil Co., MD, 1870 and 1880 Census of Allegheny Co., PA.  My husband's family is descended from Amos Evans Townsend.  Amos was married to Byantha Casantha (Ingold) Emery in Pittsburgh, PA.  They had four children: Hazel (1885-1954), Elora (1888-1958), Vivia (1891-1975), and Amos Evans, Jr. (1894-1941).  The 1900 census shows the Townsend family living in Chippewa County/Doylestown, Ohio.  Any information on this family line would be greatly appreciated.
