Born: 10 Apr 1859, Dayton, Ohio Married to Eleanor "Nellie" Lacey Brewster Died: 1920, buried, Forest Cememtery, Oskaloosa Iowa
Father: Thomas K. Brewster Born: 1828, Greene Co, Ohio Married 1858, Green Co., Ohio Mother: Mary Emma Snowden Brewster Family later moved to Oskaloosa, IA
After James Maried Eleanor, they had one child - Doris Brewster. Born: 24 Dec 1892, Oskaloosa, Iowa Married to Cornilius Ferry Hatch Died: 06 Nov 1975, Sierra City, Ca
Family legend is that the 3 of them: James, Eleanor, and a very young Doris moved from Iowa to live in one of the first houses in Nome around the 1900's.It seems like a bit of a tall tale, but I think James had some gold fever in him.
If anyone can tell me where I may find more info about them, I'd love to try to find when they were in Alaska and for how long, etc.Thanks! -jeff
