RE: Genette Pennington
Thank you Madeline for the additional information on the Pennington and Day Families. I have added the information to the applicable Find A Grave Records. Please review and if you see anything that needs corrected or changed, let me know.

The only information I couldn't add was that for Daniel Day's first wife, Bernice Hawkins. If you know where she is buried, please let me know.

RE: Frank Pennington
Hi Madeline, I do not transfer memorial's from Normanda Cemetery. However, I will be more than glad to add any information you have. I will also add, in the bio section, that Frank Pennington is not actually buried in Normanda, and is buried in Argos. Do you have the name of the cemetery in Argos?

RE: Mary Rachel Mesplay
Hi, links cannot be added to memorials of the parents, they have to be added via the "child" so you need to go to the memorial of the child and send that person an edit request to add a parental link and provide each parent's memorial number. I am also related to Rachel Mesplay and Mr. Knorpp, so please contact me! : )

I don't know if there is a tombstone for him or not. I requested a photo of his tombstone as soon as I heard from you--but so far nothing.

You never did post your photos at findagrave at Three Rivers Cem. If you want me to post them, please email me the photos.

Is there a stone for him in the Citizens Cem. at Ft. Gibson? His actual name was Sam Owen McNair Guilliams. His mother was Adelaide Brady Guilliams. Ludinda Brady administered his estate. Sam was born 26 Mar 1875 and died 28 Mar 1895.

[Send Reply] Adalaide Brady Brewer Guilliams Sutherlin
Adalaide Sutherlin is buried in the Three Rivers Cemetery on family land that became hers after Thomas Fox Brewer died. He was a wealthy man and she was the heir. The Tree Rivers Cemetery's earlist burial is 1875, with the daughter of Adalaide, Sallie Guilliams. Adalaide's birth date was Nov. 2? 1845 (tombstone is hard to read, have to see from an angle)and died Feb 16, 1887. She is buried with numerous children as well as her aunt, Lucinda Brady. Positive proof has her mother as Sallie Prince nee Sullivan. Her brother Charles's mother was Sally Wilkerson. The mother of Lucy is not known but assumed to be Sally Prince. There was no Farley M. Brady that was a aka of William M. Brady later know as Foil M. Brady, Adalaide's half brother. His mother was Dinah Eliza Prince nee Fish.
Thomas was buried in the Boudinot aka Brewer Cemetery. It was surrounded by the original land owner John Brewer about 1840.In later years this property was owned by a man by the name of Dambach, pronounced "Dumbaw", who was a German. In 1869, William Penn Boudinot traded a place that he had improved on Big Greenleaf Creek to Mr. Dambach for the Brewer place upon which this burial ground is situated. Mr. Boudinot retained this property and made it his home until 1883, when he and his family moved to Tahlequah. The original Brewer burial plot is located about one hundred fifty yeards east of No 10 highway, three miles north of Braggs, Ok and is visible from the highway. About one hundred yards south of the burial ground can be found the remains of the Brewer, or Boudinot home. Mrs. Elinor Meigs, daughter of William Penn Boudinot, said when she was a little girl, she was present and listened to the conversation between her father and Mr. Dambach when her father traded places with Dambach and came into possession of the Brewer property in 1869. The tomb of Thomas F. Brewer is beautiful. It was constructed from native stone by a stone mason by the name of Potts. It is about 3 feet in width, 3 feet high and 6 foot in length.

There seems to be some mix up as to where Thomas Fox Brewer is buried. I found his tombstone in the Boudinet/Brewer cemetery near Muskogee on former family land. Also Adalaide Brady nee Brewer is buried at Three Rivers Cemetery outside of Okay, Ok. I have a picture of her tombstone as well as numerous childrens buried stones.

RE: Fish
I am related to the Barnett Family. Eliza "Lizzie" Barnett (daughter of Siah Barnett & Mary Beams) married Little Fish.

I descend from the Barnett family this way:

1. Thomas Barnett & Hannah
2. Siah Barnett & Mary Beams
3. Hannah Barnett & James Fisher
4. William Fisher & Kogee Simmons
5. Alice Fisher & Henry Mannon
6. Margaret Mannon & Ray Hall
7. Lance Hall (1971)

Hannah (Tom's 2nd wife) may have been a mixed-blood slave of the Sullivan family.

Louisa Sullivan's mother was Eliza Fisher (died 1875-80) but I don't know where Eliza fits in the Fisher family. I can only assume she was a sister of my James Fisher (1858-1927) but have no direct proof.

Are you sure about the name of the cemetery?

Do you know if others are buried there?

There is a Three Rivers in Okay, Wagoner Co., OK; that is were I posted Adelaide.

No, I am not kin to the Brady Line. Do you need me to transfer anything to you.

Someone has already posted a tombstone photo at Greenleaf for Thomas Fox Brewer.

Under what name was Adelaide buried?

You may go ahead and post the photos to their children.
