RE: Susan Chaney Vance
You're very welcome, Debera. I see you have requests for others here locally. I'll see about trying to get those for you too. I have leaned not to claim them until I actually have the picture. Sometimes life gets in the way. I'll make a note of them and try to get there maybe next week.

William Grear in Durham Cemetery
Hello...I seen that you are descended from William Grear (Memorial #25785102) who is buried in the Durham Cemetery in Lewis county, Missouri. Have you done any research on his second wife, Isabelle? In the 1880 census of Highland township, Lewis county, Missouri he and his wife Isabel were married and he had listed as step-children Edward and George Jackson. There is also a marriage record of William Greer and Lee Jackson on April 29, 1866 in Marion county, Missouri. Maybe Lee and Isabelle are the same person?

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. :)

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.

RE: Holmestad

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