Help..gggf Wm. Brewer and gggm Louisa "Babe" Hughes; ggm Elizabeth Brewer married William Childers we think in So. Indiana. Found them on 1900 census in Barbor Co., KS with 2 oldest children, my gm, Ida Mae Childers b. 1898 and the 2nd child, Martha Ellen b. 1900. They then came back to Lawrence Co., IN and had the remaining 4 children. My ggm died in 1913/1914 in Lawrence Co. Ind. and buried in Bedford, IN. My ggf was later put in prison and the children put in orphanage in Indianapolis, transferred to foster homes in Sullivan, Monroe Co., IN. My gm, Ida, was the oldest at 15/16 yrs old and married a much older man who lived down the road, Wm. Jack Patton. The 2nd child, Martha Ellen, followed suite and married a much older man than lived next door rather than to go to the orphanage. Trying to locate the birthplace for my grandmother and her parents. Also where they are buried. We were told that Babe Hughes Brewer came from Washington County, Indiana. Can't locate a birth or death record on Babe or William Brewer. Can't find a birth record on my grandmother or her mother. Can anyone help me out there?

Thanks Much!
