I was born and raised in Hawaii, but now living in Seattle for 23 1/2 years. I have 3 children, and five grandchildren.|
I have been working on my family tree for about 3 years now, but the last 2 years is when I really got into it. I just love it! It's a journey of unexpected twists and turns. All very exciting :)
Surnames researching are as follows:
Archer, Achor, Blackmore,...

Do you have an account with ancestry.com? Matching family trees are saying that Mathias' parents were William Brewer b. 1798 in Fairfax, VA and Eliza Jane LNU b. 1825.
|Christa Isom||RE: Brewers|
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.
|Christa Isom||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.

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

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

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.
