Re: Gilbert BERWICK, b. 1835, LA, d. TX
I have no confirmation regarding Gilbert Berwick's parents but my family records indicate that Gilbert Berwick and Elizabeth Burrell were the parents of my paternal grandfather, Nathan Berwick, b. 8-6-1864 d. 3-11-1947.Nathan died in Beaumont, Texas but he lived his early life in Orange County.I am not certain where he was born but I always thought it was in Orange County.Some notes taken by my mother indicate that Nathan had a sister named Rachel and an an uncle named Eli.The children of Rachel are listed as Cornelia, Bertha, Joe and Henry. Are we talking about the same family?
You mention "East Texas" as the place where a number of Berwicks appear to have settled.Could you be more specific?
Please let me know.We probably have other information to share.My father was Joseph Arnold Berwick, 1894-1970.
