William Grear in Durham Cemetery
Hello...I seen that you are descended from William Grear (Memorial #25785102) who is buried in the Durham Cemetery in Lewis county, Missouri. Have you done any research on his second wife, Isabelle? In the 1880 census of Highland township, Lewis county, Missouri he and his wife Isabel were married and he had listed as step-children Edward and George Jackson. There is also a marriage record of William Greer and Lee Jackson on April 29, 1866 in Marion county, Missouri. Maybe Lee and Isabelle are the same person?

RE: Brewers
Hey Debera,

I did a little digging and the only thing I can find is that this batch of Brewers a few gens back came out of Virginia, as do mine. Mine are out of Brunswick County VA and then into Tennessee. I think I must have been doing some research and came across the picture I posted. Pictures like that are such gems and it was too good not to share. That's the only thing I can come up with. Wish I could be of more help. Earliest Brewer I have in America is John Brewer who married Anne Skinner. They came over from England, to Massachusetts and then down into Virginia in the early to mid 1600s.

RE: Brewers
You'll have to help me out with memorial numbers. I can't find the ones your talking about. I'll be happy to share what I know on our Brewers. :)

I have added the two photo for Joanna, and Arnold.
The child, Virgil, is listed as Grandson b.1924 d. 1925.

All four gone in a few short years of each other.

If you want Vigil, create a profile and request a photo.

RE: Holmestad

Yes, they are all in the same Strathcona Cemetery. They all lay next to each other.


Added by Bill on Oct 26, 2013 10:33 AM


Alone with Ole Holmestad, I've have sons; Arnold, Virgil and Johanna his wife.

If you want to create a profile for them, I will attached the photos.

Madeira Cemetery
Sorry, John...hopefully you can find someone there soon.

Added by Ryan Farley on Sep 21, 2013 5:51 PM

darn..... i saw you'd added some records for a cemetery on Madeira (where my great-grand uncle and perhaps some other relatives) are buried, i was hoping you were a local.... being from the east coast i guess i'm closer then you are... oh well!

I noticed you have listed Lofton in your family tree. Are they here in Lincolnton, NC also? I have found many at the Pisgah Methodist Church in Lincolnton, NC. I even know a couple of Loftin's spelling is different but the spelling is changed in many cases for one reason or another. Sometimes the spelling is the same but pronounced differently from one location to the next or even in the same town.

Check out Pisgah United Methodist Church Cemetery for more on that name.

Again later

RE: Benjamin Bird
Go to the Southside Baptist Church Cemetery and enter the last name only Byrd. This should bring up all the Byrd's that are showing there. Another thing I do is go in and do a county wide search for the folks with a certain last name. It brings up all the people in the County even if they married and have another last name. As long as the person's maiden name was entered you get both. It will show you the cemetery they are buried in and all. You can also do that for a State wide search.

Let me know if it doesn't work and I will search it for you. Sorry I couldn't find the stone.

I may be back there some time later. I will try to see if there may be any stones that appear to be buried. I have had to dig up markers that were buried under 3 to 4 inches of mud and grass just to see if they were who I am looking for. I take a thin piece of metal and just push it into the ground a few inches. If hit something hard like rock I will continue to tap around until I do not hit rock there is where I begin to remove the grass etc until I can see what is under it. I have 10 or 15 markers like that.

I have an uncle buried there as well and can't find his marker either so maybe I'll get lucky and find both.

Hi Debera. Have you looked at any of the Byrd memorials in Hollybrook in Lincoln County, NC? There is a few.

J E Strotman
Vincente Garcia
While in the process of listing as many names as I could on the St Joseph Catholic Cemetery, I came across a Vincent Garcia....1873 - 1926.

Perhaps a name you are looking for. I will make the memorial, but of course if youd like a trasfer, just let me know

RE: Randy Garcia

Randy does not show up on any of the printed indexes to those cemeteries and unfortunately there was no obituary as I looked for three years, year of death and years before and after just to make sure. Most of the indexes were done by taking data from grave markers so could be he is at one of them, but has no marker. I'll keep looking.

RE: Randy Garcia

Yes, there are three near Kamehameha Schools and I live even closer to there. It is about a two or three minute walk. Let me try to verify which one and I will try to get photo and let you know correct name.
