A relative of mine has an old book that he wants to get rid of.
It's "Life of George Dewey" "Dewey Family History"

Printed in 1898 by the Dewey Publishing Co. of Westfield Mass. and has over 1100 pages of genealogoy information, some quite detailed.

Other than two references to Carriers in the book we have no use for it and would like to give it to some person or institution involved in researching this line.

Neal, if you are serious about giving it away I would be more than happy to pay the UPS shipping charges.

I am researching the Dewey family through my brother-in-law's line and would be happy to take the book. I will gladly pay for all shipping costs. Contact me directly at diggnroots@sbcglobal.net so that we may discuss this.

I would dearly love to have the book and will gladly pay a price for it as well as shipping and handling. All of my Dewey ancestors are lost to me. My father was Robert Dewey, Terre Haute, Indiana. My parents were divorced when I was less than two years old and just a couple of years ago, I located my half sister(died this past Oct) and found I know more of our family than she did. Would like to establish family tree for our descentdents. Many thanks. Faye

I'd love to have it. I'm a descendant and have a library, however do not have any books on my Dewey family.

I failed to mention that I'll of course pay any of your expenses. I think because of all the action you have that you should put it on e-bay and then donate the profit to your favorite charity.

Dear Mr. Neal Carrier:
I have some ancestry my father Harold Francis Dewy put to-gether before he died. He was born near Cadillac Michigan. The possibility of obtaining your subject book would be great, if it's not too expensive !!
What is your asking price?

Hello - I somehow came across your info. Looks like we may share a relative. My grandfather (James Robert Dewey's father) was Robert Royce Dewey. Please take a look at my very new tree. I just started yesterday and have a little big going on, but saw that you had a link to Sarah Dewey (I dont know her maiden name). Please let me know if any of my tree looks like it matches with yours... Would love to chat and exchange info. I have some birth & death certificates which is how I have gotten so far.

Did your house shake just a little while ago? That was me yelling. If I'm correct, I'm your great aunt!!!
As I mentioned, I finally got in touch with my half sister, Wanda's daughter and she couldn't help very much. She did send me a picture of James and her at a school reunion. I certainly hope we can help each other in filling out the Dewey tree...the Alma Holton you have in your list is /was my mother, she died in 95. I don't mind email but prefer the phone. You are in your 30's or early 40's right? I have a few answers for you and a zillion questions. So glad to meet you. Faye
