Samuel & Rhoda Brewer (Logan/Mingo County WV)
Posted by: Jodie Robinson (ID *****5795) Date: April 09, 2008 at 05:28:27
  of 8988


I was wondering if anyone can help me sort this out. My husband descends through the above couple through two of their children, Pherbia and Robert E. Lee Brewer. Pherbia married Wilburn Rose, and "Lee" Brewer married Elizabeth "Betty" Evans. Lee's daughter married Pherbia's son (yes, first cousins), and that's how my husband descends through both of them.

Anyway, my question is about Rhoda (Pherbia and Lee's mother). I have seen on the internet and even in a book that her maiden name was Kirk, though I believe it to be Spaulding. Samuel and Rhoda Brewer did have a daughter named Rhoda who married a Kirk and that is where I believe people are getting confused. Rhoda Kirk's death certificate lists her parents as Samuel Brewer and Rhoda Spaulding. The death certificate could be wrong I suppose, so I am trying to find death certificates for her other children but haven't located any of them yet. I would also like to find death information about Samuel and Rhoda (Spaulding?) Brewer, because I don't have that either. I think Samuel died before 1900 and Rhoda died after 1910.

If anyone knows anything about this, I would greatly appreciate a reply. Thanks!
