I would like to get in touch with descendants of Obadiah Brown HEWITT. He was born 18 Sep 1828 in Hope, Maine. In 1859 he married Mary Wheeler (TURNER), who was born 16 Mar 1827 in Pennsylvania. They had five children:
1. James Henry Hobbs HEWITT, born 23 July 1863 in Brownville, Nebraska; married Maude KELLY; died 19 Dec 1935 in Alliance, Nebraska.
2. Catherine L. HEWITT, born 3 Sep 1864 in Brownville, Nebraska; married Casper Juan DAVIS; died 15 July 1953.
3. Mary Esther HEWITT, born 20 Mar 1866 in Brownville, Nebraska; died around 1871 in Brownville, Nebraska.
4. Anna W. HEWITT, born 23 Nov 1868 in Brownville, Nebraska; died around 1878 in Brownville, Nebraska.
5. William Cyrus HEWITT, born 24 Sep 1872 in Nemaha County, Nebraska; married Maude MORLEDGE in Nov 1903; died around 1950.
In 1857, Joseph Rutherford NELSON was one of the founders of my town, Beatrice, Nebraska. This summer marks the 150th anniversary of Beatrice, and the community is planning a celebration. The festivities would be even more special if descendants of the founders could attend. If you are a descendant of this family, or know where I can contact one, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
