Geeez, hope I didn't sound harsh. No need to apologize -- I was just hoping there might be something that would indicate a direction for this research.As I mentioned in mypost, there's absolutely no evidence (that I'm aware of) that Ambrose was the Brewer that Mary Oma married.We simply know that in her father's will, he refers to her as a Brewer.Which is why I'm still curious -- what is the source of the Jay Berry Brewer story?Something that's been kicking around in Richardson family circles?Someone who was in the area at the right time?
I'll admit to having a second motive here -- I have another line of Brewers who are all mixed up with Howards and Berrys -- I wonder if your Jay Berry Brewer might somehow be a fit?Any idea if Berry was his mother's maiden name?
You absolutely should have posted the message, and I truly apologize if my response gave the wrong impression -- you never know when something, however tenuous, might turn out to be the link that leads to Mary Oma Richardson and the right Mr. Brewer!! That's what these boards are for!!!
