Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband and I love to do genealogy research and get to know our ancestors who have left us such a great legacy.

My greatest focus lately has been on my dad's side of the family, especially the Brewer line of Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama. My favorite is Isaac Brewer (1763-1852), who is believed to be my 5 greats grandfather. He was born in what later became Wilkes County, Georgia, but was then part of the Creek and Cherokee Nation. He grew up in North Carolina and there served in the Revolutionary War. During the war he was briefly taken prisoner by the British in South Carolina and later, in the Battle of Cane Creek, was shot in that back during an ordered retreat. A few years after the war he moved to the Oconee River region of Georgia, which was then the frontier, where he was an Indian fighter and Indian spy during the Oconee Indians Wars. During one battle he was stabbed, but survived. He later served in the War of 1812. Isaac eventually moved to eastern Tennessee and later to Talladega County, Alabama near Silver Run. There he died at home in 1852 at the age of 89. I have created a website on which to post documents, photos, and also life stories I have written on members of the Brewer line. The URL is listed above. I am also writing a book about Isaac Brewer's life.

A few other surnames of interest to me are Britton, Lightle, Waters, Reno, Odell, Hunter, Coulter, Hitchcock, Fitz Farrell, and Linder.

Campbell's line includes such surnames as Birch, Dayton, Fuller, White, Andersen, Jensen, and Kellar. Some of Campbell's ancestors came to America in the 1800s with the LDS Pioneers, but others came much earlier on the Mayflower, and one relative even was one of the signers of the U.S. Constitution! Some areas that his ancestors settled were Fountain Green, Ephraim and Manti, Utah and also Shelly, Idaho and Overton, Nevada.

For more information on Campbell's Birch/Dayton/Cooper line, please visit his website Ancestors of Parley Birch Jr.

RE: Pleasant Burton Brewer photo
Hi Mary, so nice to connect with a Brewer researcher.Of course you can use the photo, it actually came from website. I have no idea what year it is. Sorry It is not larger. you might look at the photo on memorial #44925657 of mine... Someone else posted it on his fathers memorial incorrectly and I have asked him to remove it. the photo on this memorial is of Pleasant Burton Brewer and his brothers, not his father Pleasant like it states. Pleasant Burton is the one in the middle of the photo. The photo came from the book "Lasting Memories ,a pictorial history of Bledsoe county Tn" Love your website...great job. If you have any info on Pleasant Burtons father Pleasant Brewer please share It with me...
GOD Bless,

Gege Henry Peterson
I am the great granddaughter of GH Peterson through his third wife. My Grandfather was Jesse Y Peterson. Would you like additional information on GH Peterson's other marriage and children? I live near Ogden Utah and remember visiting the Coalville cemetery on memorial day to clean the graves and leave flowers. New headstones have been added since then.

RE: Wrong Photograph on Cecelia Pherson Wilde
If you go to, and go to LZLY-XT2 Eliza Phillips, this photograph is posted there. Someone named Ken Tomlin posted the photograph. He does leave an e-mail: You might check with him. I don't have any personal knowledge of the photograph. In fact, she is my husband's ancestor. I could easily be wrong. I hope that helps.

Wrong Photograph on Cecelia Pherson Wilde
I'm most grateful for all you have done for the Coalville, Utah, Cemetery. I've found one mistake. You have a photograph for Cecelia Pherson Wilde #73476. The picture is really Eliza Phillips, the first wife of William Wilde, not his second wife.

Alanson & Sylvia (Lewis) Walker, Mooers, New York
Have info on Sylvia Lewis from geneology I have., memorial # 65324035.
Her parents are James Lewis 1755-abt1827 & Trypenia Barber 1753-abt 1815. Tryphenia was born in Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut to parents Gideon Barber 1723-1787 & Anna Gillet.

Gideon saw Revolutionary War Service during the first 3 years of the war, and also in December 1778, from Manchester, in Capt. Gideon Ormsby's Company. Gideon and his brother David (#36) were volunteers to help build a "free bridge" across the Rivulet (Farmington River) in Windsor, at the ferry, in 1749.
After Gideon's death Elias Gilbert became guardian of two of Gideon's children, Abijah and Levi, minors, at Manchester 23 Feb 1788. A court record in 1767 shows that Gideon appeared to complain of being beaten up by Augustin DRAKE, and to ask for 20 shillings compensation for this. It was decided that Augustin DRAKE should be arrested.

Gideon & Anna's genealogy can be found, on probably, many websites
