Thank you! Can i ask where you found this info! And what state did they marry in! Iam assuming New Mexico.. I would amagine Josephine re-married after Bonnie passed away so young at the age 28. They where living in illinois at time of his death..I cant find out what happened to josephine afterwards! Thanks Barb!

Well here I am thinking that you know where I am from, teach me to assume :) :) :)

I looked it up at the Chaves County Clerk's marriage records here in Roswell, NM. They married here in Roswell.

I am not showing her buried at South Park with Bonnie Witt so maybe she is buried in Illinois. Did they have any children?

Hi there:

Just for your info :)

Josephine's parents, Matilda and W. R. "Billy" Hewes are buried in Roswell at South Park.

I went through the daughters' married names and figured out that Josephine married Wayne Brewster. In 1930 they lived in El Paso, Texas. She had a son, Bobbie Witt Brewster, age six, born in Illinois circa 1924. Perhaps she might have been pregnant when Bonnie died? (it did not mention a child in the small obit here) She had another son, age 1 1/2 born in Texas. I thought she might have married Dwight Herbst but he was married to her older sister, Katherine. Our library does not have the 1922 city directory so unable to look it up to see if it was her.
