What is the basis for saying that John Dewees was born in New Jersey??
What is the source that reports Johnís parents as Garrett and Agnes Streeper Dewees?

You loaded a photo of the family stone to the above memorial. Can you move it to the following Memorial# 36406453. Turns out I have a duplicate and I need to delete the one the photo is on. Thank you in advance for your help. Valerie

|Glenn Wallace||RE: John Buchanan Brewer photos|
The Board thought of that, and his name is already etched on the big grave marker for his wife, but visitor came to Rockville Cemetery thinking he was there because of the foot marker and asked about the family plot. Burying the marker and updating the wife's memorial should alleviate this in the future. Thanks!

Can you please delete the two photos you placed on John's memorial? He was actually buried at Cedar Hill Cemetery in Suitland, MD by his second wife. I'm working with Rockville Cemetery to help clear up this confusion. His foot marker will be buried so visitors won't be confused. THANK YOU~~~~
|Georgina McCarley--GRMcCH||RE: Barton's|
I'm still working on my Barton info/book to transcribe to Ancestry. My book is back to Christopher in England. Capt. David Barton & Betty are part of my direct line.
|Georgina McCarley--GRMcCH||RE: Betsey Wait(e) Barton|
Thank you for the reply & info. Are you a descendant of Gardiner/Gardner? My family came South. They dropped the (i) in their name. RI Gardiner's say "We are the Gardiner's that can't see, because we lost our i [eye].lol.
