Hi Don, Just read your posted message, about the Brewers buried in the Burnett Cemetery in Penn Township, Highland County, Ohio, It is on the border of Clinton and Highland Counties so I am not sure which is correct. My descent comes down through Reuben and Celia's eldest daughter Pherabe who married her cousin Isham Brewer, the son of Nicholas Brewer Jr. My daughter and I visited that cemetery in 1992 and you are correct, it was certainly a thrill. Pherabe went further north in Ohio, after Isham died, with her sons to Auglaize county. She is buried in Robbins Cemetery in Mercer County, Ohio, not too far from St. Marys. I saw her grave in 1989. On her grave stone is written: "The spirt's gone from this vain world is fled and her dear name is numbered with the dead. To say from earth the enraptured spirit flies, while guardian angels attend her through the skies. Yes, Mother's gone from toil & care, gone to the beautiful world so fair. We miss her, her name we all adore. Mother is not dead, just gone before." 7 Nov 1874, age 77ys 10m 18d

Best wishes, Barbara L. Harrison
