Nettie Brewer-I found her name listed in "Interments Index to New Jefferson Cemetery", lot #265, but when I check the transcription for the cemetery she isn't listed. The transcription is ongoing so when it's finished she may show up.(Town of Catskill Cemetery RT 23/Formerly Jefferson Rural Cemetery). This may be the Village Cemetery listed in Mazzeppa's obituary but I'm not certain of it.
I've also been trying to determin Netties last name:
From "Old Fulton NY Postcards":
Greene County Examiner Recorder
December 1, 1908
Christmas Tree cutters home from the wilds of Vermont:
On Wednesday M. T. Brewer, John Scriber, and Lester Barris of the westside arrived home from the vicinity of Cambridge, in northern Vermont, where they had been cutting Christmas trees for market.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 1, 1919.
Mrs. M.T. Brewer, West Main street, was made happy this week by the arrival of her son, Corporal Lester Barris, who saw service with the hard fighting 5th Division in France. He was overseas for more than a year;
Catskill NY Recorder 1922 Grayscale
= Mrs. Nettie Brewer, West Main street, is with her son-in- law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Barris of Pittsfleld, Mass.
What's confusing is that Lester is listed as her son, while Charles is listed as son in law.
