    3. Baltimore American Description: George D. Iverson Drops Dead in his Office – Indigestion Causes Sudden Demise of the Prominent Wholesale Grocer Date: March 26 1904 Newspaper published in: Baltimore, MD Page/Column: 18 George D. Iverson Drops Dead in his Office – Indigestion Causes Sudden Demise of the Prominent Wholesale Grocer Mr. George D. Iverson, 53 years old, manager of the Maryland Belting and Packing Company, 504 South Dallas Street, died suddenly yesterday morning in his office. He had been seen by some of the employees about 10 minutes before he was found dead and seemed to be in perfect health. Death was due to heart failure, superinduced by an attack of indigestion. Mr. Iverson left his home, 2129 Bolton Street, shortly after 7 o'clock yesterday morning apparently in good health and excellent spirits. His body was brought home about 3 o'clock in the afternoon. The family were almost prostrated with grief. Mr. Iverson was born in Mathews County, Virginia, and was a son of the late George D. Iverson, Sr. He was educated in the public schools of his native state. At the age of 19, Mr. Iverson came to Baltimore and entered the employ of the wholesale grocery firm of Wagner, Iverson & Roundtree. Later the firm became Iverson & Roundtree, and Mr. Roundtree continued to actively administer the affairs of the concern until about two years ago, when failing health compelled him to retire to rest and recuperate his strength. Mr. Iverson married Miss Alice Baker of Baltimore, who, with one son (Mr. George D. Iverson, Jr.) and one daughter (Miss Alice I. Iverson) survive him. A brother (Mr. William P. Iverson) and a sister (Miss Viola Iverson) are living in Mathews County, Virginia. Mr. Iverson was a Knight Templar, a Mason of high degree and was a member of Boumi Temple, Mystic Shriners. The funeral will probably be conducted with Masonic rites, but the arrangements have not been completed.

    3. Baltimore Sun Description: 3 Drowned at Dock – Oystermen's Boots and Oilskins Caused Death Date: April 5 1908 Newspaper published in: Baltimore, MD Page/Column: 22 3 Drowned at Dock – Oystermen's Boots and Oilskins Caused Death Norfolk, Va., April 4. Three oystermen, Capt. W. V. Miles, Rufus Tyler, and Ernest Tyler were drowned with a few yards of Willoughby Spit dock, opposite Old Point, this morning. Their skiff was swamped as they were going to the dock from their boat in Willoughby Bay. Dragged down by rubber boots and oil skins, it was impossible for the men to save themselves and no help was near. The men had been tonging for oysters since early in the morning and were returning to the shore with the oysters they had taken. The water was smooth when they left for the wharf, but a stiff breeze and turning tide made it choppy. Several small waves broke over the skiff, leaving considerable water in it which could not be bailed because of the oysters in the boat. A wave larger than the rest finally struck the skiff broadside, sending it to the bottom at the instant when it seemed that boat and passengers were safe. Other oystermen, too far away to render assistance, saw the men go down. The bodies were recovered with oyster tongs within an hour. The Tylers were brothers, having come here about a year ago from Somerset County, Maryland, where their father still lives. The father was telegraphed regarding the death of his sons, one of whom was married and is survived by a widow and several children. They lived with Miles at his cottage on Willoughby Beach. The bodies of the Tyler brothers have been prepared for shipment to Somerset County. Captain Miles formerly lived in Mathews County, Virginia, and is a brother of R. L. and P. Miles, oyster packers of Norfolk. Description: Death of William B. Diggs Date: June 2 1915 Newspaper published in: Baltimore, MD Page/Column: 5 Death of William B. Diggs William B. Diggs, a retired sailmaker, died at 7:45 o'clock last night at his home in Hamilton, Baltimore County. Born in Mathews County, Virginia, Mr. Diggs came to this city at the age of 17 years. For many years he conducted a sail business on Thames Street and became well known among the captains coming to this port. He was 74 years old and is survived by a widow and one son, Thomas B. Diggs, Jr.

    3. Hi, I am a descendant of the Foster family of Mathews county, Va. I have a John Foster married to Sarah Brownley. This might be your Foster connection. My information on this family comes from Ancestry.com. John Foster and Sarah Brownley Foster had the following children: Dorothy "Dolly" B.Foster born in 1823 and died in 1911. She is my great great grandmother. Nancy Foster born in 1824 and died in 1911, Winslow Foster born in 1826 and died in 1904. Sarah Foster born in 1828 and died in 1859. I think this Sarah died in a boating accident. Virginia Foster born in 1830. John Foster was born in 1800 and died in 1874. Sarah Brownley Foster was born in 1799/1800 and died prior to 1850. All births and deaths occurred in Mathews, Virginia. I don't know if this is of interest or not but I try to help people. So many people have helped me over the years.

Author: mdmascari Surnames: Brownley, Bromley Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.usa.states.virginia.counties.mathews/1421/mb.ashx Message Board Post: A lot of information has been published about William Marshall Brownley (1803 - 1867). I understand several William M. Brownley's lived in Mathews at different times, however; I find several possible data conflicts with the above referneced Wm. M. The Bromley-Brownley family Bible record, 1801-1975 at the Library of Virginia and Genealogies of Virginia Families lists William M Brownley as a son of John and Sarah Brownley. (maiden name unknown) A newspaper obituary lists "William M Brownley (white) died Dec 18, 1867, 62 yr, son of John and Sally Brownley; Husband of Lucy Brownley. Born and died in Mathews."; William's mother's name is listed as Sarah in the first two sources and as Sally in his obituary. Could this just be a typographical error? Further the referenced to "A Familiy History Write-up found in the Brownley Bible by Eva Augusta Trower" contains a list of William's siblings: John 1801-1867, William Marshall 1803-1867, Sarah 1803, Milton Lafayette 1807, Rose Marshall 1809, LeVisa 1810, Dorathea 1812. I have found obituaries (see my other post "Brownley Horn Harbour") that list other siblings to William M. Brownley ie: Leroy M Brownley 1828-1848. It is possbile that Leroy M, Robert W and Larkin C Brownley are half brothers. Does anyone have any additional sources or information concerning Eva Augusta Trower referenced in the bible? I would greatly appreciate collaboration from anyone with additional information. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

Possibly another son based on the 1848 obituary of Leroy M Brownley " leaves... one sister and four brothers". It appears that Rev. John Brownley may have been married to Sally (William M.'s mother) prior closer to 1800 and later married to Johanna Armistead before 1827.

One thing that I am curious about is the possible relationship between Jesse Thomas and James Warner Thomas (immigrant from Wales late 1820's or early 1830's). Below is a link to a document that contains some research that was done on the Barneck/Thomas Place, that was built by James Warner Thomas in 1834. There is a deed showing that Jesse's wife Matilda and children received a part of the land that James Thomas built the Barneck house on. It appears that there must be a relationship between Jesse and James Thomas, in order for Jesse's family to be deeded part of the Barneck land. http://matthewkimball.net/pedigree/Robert_Matthew_Thomas.pdf Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

The only other link I have, could be James Morgan 1755, brother to William Morgan 1762-1840, but I can not find a record of James and Elizabeth baptizing a child named James. James and Elizabeth recorded their children's baptisms in the Kingston Parish records. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
