Virgel was Obert and his 1st wife Ruth son. The son who passed away from pnumonia I was told.
Arnold passed away from TB at the sanatorium in Thief River.

Brewers
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.

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. :)

Debera,

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.

Debera,

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