September 1997 Queries
I need marriage dates for Jacob T. PETREE and Cora SPANGLER may be 1916 but could later in 1925-26, Or someone give me the address for the court house or maybe a trip to the court. I will share on this PETREE marriage.
I am trying to find information on my Father's Mother's side. My grandmothers maiden name was FAWVER. From the family Bible it says that she was born on December 25, 1877 in Stephenson Co, Illinois to George Franklin and Harriet Moss Fawver. My grandmothers name was Bessie May Fawver.
Also, from old news clippings there was a Phillip Fawver who died at Freeport, Illinois sometime in October of 1914, from a automobile accident at Black Hawk Monument, and a Moses Fawver who died in Lancaster Township around the late 1890's or early 1900's, from a farming accident. I believe both of these gentlemen were brothers of George Franklin Fawver. I also, believe that George and Harriet where married in Freeport, Illinois, since Harriet was from Illinois. In one of the news clippings they had spelt the family name Fauver, which is a misspelling. They were members of the United Brethren Church. Moses Fawver widow Ella Fawver ran a boardinghouse in Rockford, per her obituary, but the family resided in Freeport. Phillip had thirteen (13) living children at the time of his death, and Moses had eleven (11).
