Your comment sparked my interest -- I went back and found an 1840 Rutherford TN census with an Eli Brewer aged betw. 30 - 40 with a woman the same age range, three young boys and 2 young girls. I know that Rutherford is in the middle of the state where yours in closer to VA but found it interesting.
James: Thanks for the response. A 1900 Scott Co, Arkansas census shows William M. living with Nancy and their children: John Mary, Joseph, Rosa, Charles, Minerva A. (my gr-grandmother), and Mattie. He later married his second wife Melinda Jane Wineland. Wm M. married Nancy Brewer in 1866 in Arkansas. She was born abt. 1845 in TN and died 1916 in Ark. I don't have anything beyond her parents but her father was Eli Brewer born abt. 1815 in No. Car. and died 1850 in Ark. Her mother was Louisa unknown born 1814 in TN and also died 1850 in Ark. I don't have anything further for them.
James, I would love to have them. I might have one of the census but send them any way, but I don't have the marriage information. send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know if I can do anything for you. Thank you again.
James, I appreciate your offer, but I have no idea where they are buried. This is my problem. My father married the first time sometime in the early 30's while he was in the Army out there. He married Hilda (Mildred) Bloomdahl d/o Gus Bloomdahl. They has two girls one in 1934 and the other 1936. I know nothing about them other than their names. I have been trying for years to locate them with out success. Their names as Eunice Jean Smith and Evelyn Mae Smith. The parents listed on their birth records from WA is Kenneth Eugene Smith and Mildred E. Bloomdahl. That is the only place I find her listed as Mildred. Every where else she is listed as Hilda and that is what my father said her name was. He left WA in the winter of 39/40 leaving his family behind. Have no idea if there was a divorce or not. Cannot locate that information. By 1942 he had worked his way back east to Michigan where he met and married my mother in 1944. I thought maybe if I could trace her father then I might be able to find out what happened to Hilda and the girls. Sorry I have ran on so much but you are the first one I have seen on here from that area. Thanks anyway. Joyce
Hi, I left you a friend request but you didn't answer which is OK, but I do have a question for you. In FAG group you said you could photograph graves in Snohomish Co, WA. I was wondering if you might have a listing/book with burial in Snohomish and surounding counties. I am looking for Gus Bloomdahl and any other Bloomdahl you might be able to find. Thanks Joyce
