Biography*"Neil" Drewer was in the 1900 Saxis household (HH) #434 and the 1910 Saxis HH#24 with his parents, John R. and Kate Drewer. For some unknown reason, he and his wife and family were not listed in the 1920 census. Neil was born in his parent's home at Saxis, where he lived the later part of his life. He worked on the water with his father to help support the family when the weather permitted and went to school in the winter months when the weather was bad. He stopped school after the third grade. He loved to read and study the Bible and history and was quite good at math and reading maps and charts. As a young man he built an ice boat which many young people enjoyed when the Pocomoke Sound was frozen across to the Maryland shoreline. It was reported that he once swam in a cow pond naked. As a little fellow he and his sister, Mae, who was two years older than him, were sent out to the garden to bury a dead baby chicken. As Mae was digging the hole with a wide grubbing hoe, she accidentally cut him across the top of his head. He carried that scar the rest of his life. He also had a scar across the back of his right hand which he got from the propeller on a bateau crabbing boat when a rope got caught around it when he was crabbing. He and his bride, Evva Kilmon, who was teaching at the Saxis elementary school at the time, eloped to Crisfield, MD, in a boat during a December snowstorm. After his marriage he and his wife lived with his parents until their home was built. During World War I he worked in the shipyards in Newport News, VA, but his wife and children lived at home in Saxis, VA. After World War I he returned to Saxis and worked was a waterman and mariner. In 1935, after the death of his father, he bought his parent's home and moved his wife and three youngest children from the home he built into his father's home. His oldest son, Earl, and his new bride, Madge, bought the house Neil built and their first child was born there. He sailed freight boats all over the Chesapeake Bay area. During World War II he and his two sons enlisted in the US Coast Guard Auxiliary which temporarily admitted his 65 foot boat, the J.C. DREWER, into service as a Coast Guard buoy tender. (Source: his daughter Nellie Catherine Drewer). Capt. Neil Drewer of the US Coast Guard spent a few days recently with his family (Pen. Ent., 12 Mar 1943). On 16 Dec 1910 - Capt. "Neil" Drewer, son of Capt. John R. Drewer, and Miss Eva Killmon eloped to Crisfield on Wednesday evening, December 16th, and were united in he holy bonds of wedlock. - Saxis letter in Onancock News. (Virginia Citizen of Irvinton, VA, 14 Jan 1910). On 4 Mar 1929 when he was 39 years old, 5 years before his father, John R. Drewer (1865-1934) died, and only 7 months before the Stock Market crashed and the Great Depression began, he and his younger brother Howard signed a letter agreement with the L.P. Price Co., Inc., Fishing Bay Railway, of Ruark, VA to build a gas powered buy boat of the dead rise type 64 ft 10 in long, 18 ½ ft wide and 6 ft deep to be built of fir pine sides, Georgia pine deck, Virginia spruce deck beams, spruce bottom, stem, stem line, shaftlog, stern post, hatch combings, log, guard and monkey rail are to be of white oak. The bottom ceiled with 2 inch Virginia pine, all bulk heads put in, boat caulked and painted with two coasts of paint outside and a coat of pine oil inside hull, pilot house to be completed, engine bedding put in. The boat was to have one mast, one boom & one gaft, two chain plates with dead eyes, mast to be put in and rigging set up. Weather permitting the boat was to be delivered at the place of the builder by 15 June 1929 for the sum of $3,400. They agreed to pay $500 upfront and the order balance was to be paid as needed. In August 1929 the Recession begins, two months before the stock market crash. During this two month period, production will decline at an annual rate of 20%, wholesale prices at 7.5%, and personal income at 5%. The Stock Market Crash begins 24 October 1929. His grandson J.C. “Johnny” Drewer III has the ledger book he kept aboard the J.C. DREWER from Feb 1932 to May 1942. The very first page of the ledger shows monthly interest payments to the Bank of Crisfield and smaller interest payments to the Marine Bank. In 1932 he was evidently hauling fertilizer and ports of call included Salisbury, St. Michaels, Snow Hill and one entry shows 1,070 bushels of oysters from the Seaside to Crisfield. In 1932 he was paying 10 cents a bushel for oysters taken off the Corbin ground (or being paid 10 cents per bushel for freight only). On 7 May 1932 he paid Earl (his son) and Clifton (Marshall) 50 cents each for a days work. In August he was hauling fertilizer from Norfolk to Washington, NC. In June 1934 they made their first listed trip to Davis Wharf, hauling 741 barrels of potatoes from there to Crisfield, MD. Less than a year later his son Earl married Madge Davis of Davis Wharf in Apr 1935. In Oct 1940 he was hauling oysters from James River to Chincoteague. On the last page of the ledger, recorded on 21 Feb 1942, was an interest & bond payment of $49 and in April he spent $3.25 looking for engine parts. On 3 June 1942 Mr. J.C. Drewer, of Saxis, VA, received a letter from the United States Maritime Commission, Norfolk, VA, informing him that instructions have been received from the War Shipping Administrator to requisition your vessel J.C. DREWER official number 228850 under Section 902 of the Merchant Marine Act 1936 as amended. Delivery is to be made as soon as possible to the District Coast Officer, Fifth Naval District, and to simplify the delivery procedure you are requested to dispatch the boat to the Coast Guard Station, Berkley, Virginia. This station is located across the river from the Norfolk Navy Yard, Portsmouth, Virginia. Before the vessel leaves its present location to proceed to Berkley you are requested to telephone or telegraph the District Manager, U.S. Maritime Commission, Norfolk, Virginia, giving the approximate time of arrival at Berkley. The telephone is Norfolk 22205. A survey and inventory will be made at Berkley by representatives of the War Shipping Administrator and Coast Guard and yourself or your representative. The vessel’s papers (license) are to be delivered to the representative of the War Shipping Administrator. Signed G.F. Blair, District Manager. On 8 June 1942 a document entitled “Offer of a Vessel of the Auxiliary” was signed by John C. Drewer, Saxis, VA and Howard S. Drewer, Crisfield, MD, members of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary, who acknowledged that this was merely a license for the use of the vessel which may be relinquished at any time by the Coast Guard and estimating the value of the vessel, equipment & supplies on board to be $9,500. On 11 June 1942 this document was signed by the Coast Guard accepting the use of the J.C. DREWER 228850 for the duration of the war. The 62 foot workboat J.C. DREWER was assigned the C.G.R. No. 2001 and was to be stationed Off-Shore on the mission of Rescue & Observation patrol. On that same date John Cornelius Drewer (507-707) C.B.M. (T) USCGR received orders to active duty in the Temporary Coast Guard Reserve for the duration of the war and was to report to the District Coast Guard Officer, Fifth Naval District (Norfolk, VA) for assignment. On 13 Dec 1942 John C. Drewer Sr., a Chief Boatswain Mate (CMB), was disenrolled as a temporary CMB of the US Coast Guard Reserve so that he could enlist in the Regular Reserve. Order issued by the 5(SUP:)th(:SUP) Naval District (Norfolk, VA) & signed by W.F. Cass, Lt. Cmdr, USGC Reserve & Auxiliary Division. On 9 Aug 1944 he received his official Honorable Discharge from the United States Coast Guard as a Chief Boatswain’s Mate from the CGR-2001, Norfolk, Virginia. A document attached to his Discharge shows that he enlisted as a CBM on 14 Dec 1942 at Norfolk, VA for 3 years and that he held the rank of DBM (R) until 9 Aug 1944. He was 5 ft 9 in tall and weighted 186 lbs, with gray eyes, brown hair, a ruddy complexion, and had a tattoo on his right forearm “JOHN CONELIOUS DREWER” and “SAXIS, VIRGINIA.” His monthly rate of pay when discharged was $138 and was paid for 2 years, 1 month, 28 days. On 20 Dec 1944 he received a letter from R.R. Waesche, Vice Admiral, USGC, Commandant, stating that his vessel J.C. DREWER, which was placed a the disposal of the Coast Guard on 11 June 1942 has now been returned to your. It stated that the Coast Guard appreciated his patriotically proffer of his vessel to meet the extraordinary emergency and duty responsibilities of the Coast Guard in providing for anti-submarine, coastal, harbor and security patrols on an unprecedented scale. On 5 Jan 1949 he received a letter from the Secretary of the Navy, Washington, stating that soon after the outbreak of hospitalities, and a time when the menace to national defense and vital interests was most critical, the vessel J.C. DREWER, owned jointly by him and Mr. Howard S. Drewer, was made available to the Coast Guard and became a contributing factor toward the furtherance of the war effort. The J.C. DREWER has now been returned to you, and it will no doubt be a matter of great pride and interest to you to know that the J.C. DREWER gave valuable and excellent service in the important duties assigned to her. In recognition of the service rendered by the J.C. DREWER, you are authorized to place in the most appropriate display location five chevrons, one for each six months’ active service with the Coast Guard. The Navy Department takes this opportunity to express its sincere appreciation and grateful thanks for your patriotic and generous contribution in the hour of the country’s most urgent need. I am addressing a similar letter to Mr. Howard S. Drewer. Signed John R. Sullivan. Attached to the letter was a drawing showing the 5 chevrons and how to display them on the vessel. He died suddenly of a heart attack in 1960. Mr. John C. Drewer Sr., a retired waterman and veteran of World War II, died at his home at Saxis on 21 Apr 1960, aged 70 years. Survivors were listed (Pen. Ent., 28 Apr 1960). The following information was provided by Evelyn (Lewis) Powell, one of Neil's nieces. "Uncle Neil was born a couple of years after my mother. He was very active and although it was said the Drewers couldn't sing he evidently did. Mother said he was in some sort of entertainment where he sang a song about "The Owl and the Pussy Cat set out to sea in a beautiful Pea Green Boat." That is all I remember of the song. When my family went to live at Grandpa's after my father, Arnold Lewis, died in 1920, we found in the attic a big bass horn which we tried to blow, but never had enough wind to get a sound. Mother said it was Uncle Neil's and he had belonged to a "town band" when he was young. After my father died, Uncle Neil and Aunt Evva would come to visit with their children, Earl, Kathryn, and Myrtle. J.C., was born later. He would get us children to put our chairs in a circle and play games with us. One game I remember was pass the thimble, which had a little water in it and when one lost the game they got the thimble of water. We will always remember Uncle Neil as very religious. When he was a young boy, a man from Temperanceville, Bill Nock, who had his own Bank, came over for a visit and, as always, he was asked to stay for dinner. He was a surly sort and the children didn't like him. For once Grandma didn't expect company and there was no dessert. Grandpa had been to Baltimore and had brought home a whole bunch of bananas and he suggested they be dessert. Mr. Nock said he didn't know if he would like them, he had never tasted them. Uncle Neil, in not a real soft voice, said, "the old son of a bitch hadn't tasted them because he was too stingy to buy them." The children thought it was funny, but it didn't go over real big with Grandma and Grandpa. The Christmas after my father died Uncle Neil and Aunt Evva gave me a child's china tea set, which I treasured, though some of it was glued together. I was pleased to pass it on to their great-granddaughter, Rebecca Lynn Miles. My grand-children are all boys and I didn't think they would appreciate a tea set. I always felt a close relationship with Uncle Neil and Aunt Evva. Earl and I were the same age and he and J.C. have always been close to us. There is no doubt that the whole Drewer family was active in the church. Uncle Neil used his money many times to help pay for electricity and fuel when his family probably needed things. He worked hard and gave to poor people and was loved by everyone."

Death*22 December 1934John died on 22 December 1934 at Saxis Island, Acc Co, VA, at age 69. John Riley Drewer was known as Captain Drewer, one of the best known waterman on the Chesapeake Bay and a highly esteemed citizen. He was an oyster planter and waterman for 54 years. He owned the 5-log canoe built at Saxis by Bonnie Moore in 1907. She was named the "Katie D." after his wife. She later went by the name "Mustang." She is now at the Mariner's Museum at St. Michael's, MD, awaiting restoration. He also operated a oyster shucking house in the winter and a crab shedding business in the summer. In addition to being a successful oyster planter, he always took an active part in every movement looking to the betterment of those engaged in the business. He was a lifelong Democrat and on the Democratic County Committee for 25 years. During the term of Virginia Governor, Claude A. Swanson, he was appointed oyster inspector and Marine Police Captain in charge of the boat "Saxis." The "Saxis" had a small cannon on the bow of the deck. He held this position for 11 years. Capt. John Drewer of the oyster steamer Saxis, arrested five (individuals) for illegal dredging near Watt's Island, Tuesday (E.S. Hearld, 17 Nov 1921). He was a director of the Oysterman's and Planter's Protective Association and an advisor to Virginia Commission of Fisheries. His death removes one of the most influential and highly esteemed citizens of Saxis. He was known as the poor man's friend, and gave employment to a large number of people until he was forced by ill health to retire from business. For a number of years he had been a useful, active and consistent member of the Saxis Methodist Church, serving as Steward and Superintendent of the Sunday School. He was also a member of the Parksley Jr. O.U.A.M. The following information was provide by Evelyn (Lewis) Powell, one of his granddaughters. "He had a black leather rocking chair, a gift from his first wife, Kate. Whoever was sitting in that chair when he came home was told that it was his chair, even Senator Carter Glass and Governor Swanson. Kate would be so embarrassed. When his first wife died in December of 1920, his youngest daughter, Janie, whose husband Melvin, was away from home a lot, and her daughter Miriam, went to live with him. Arnold Lewis, the husband of his oldest daughter, Mae, died the following April. After Arnold died, Mae, along with her children Virginia, John, Evelyn and Basil, moved in with him. Janie and her daughter Miriam went back to their home. It was a very busy household because Mae insisted on caring for her own children. His youngest son, Milton, was not yet married and still living with him. The seafood business and politics were high on the agenda. Every Sunday morning all the men in the Drewer family, including his brothers and their children, met in the dinning room to re-hash the seafood business. You could almost cut the smoke from the pipes and cigarettes. He often lost his pipe and glasses. The glasses were always on top of his head and the pipe was sometimes in his grandsons' (John and Earl) mouth in the barn. Evelyn had to memorize a poem and he asked her to recite it for him. Afterwards he told her he had to memorize one and forgot to prepare for it. He was the first one called on so he said, "Butcher killed a calf, that's half - Threw it over the wall, that's all". The teacher gave him a beating. Mae and her children lived with him until he married again. His second marriage was to his first wife's sister, Mae. He was compassionate and giving. He gave to people in need and the church. Whenever any men needed a work boat he would furnish them one. All he asked was that they sell their seafood to him. They were not always grateful, but that never stopped him. He was always there when his children and grandchildren needed him. He helped lay the plans for the first dredging of Starlings Creek by the US Army Corps of Engineers and the building of the public dock with county funds which was later leased to the various seafood businesses of Saxis. He died of paralyses before this dream became a reality." Capt. John R. Drewer died at Saxis on 22 Dec 1934, aged 70 years, survivors were listed (Pen. Ent., 5 Jan 1935). He is buried next to his wife "Kate" in the Drewer Cemetery on Saxis, although there is no markings relative to him on their joint tombstone. His Virginia Death Certificate shows him as John R. Drewer, husband of May Drewer, a 69 year old seafood dealer, of Saxis, VA, who died on 22 Dec 1934 at 10 a.m. of Cerebral Hemorrhage. He was the son of John W.

Biography*Kate Griffin and Aggie Myers, who married Severn James Crockett, were cousins and were from Portsmouth, VA. Kate's mother, Virginia A. Foster, was a sister to Maria Foster, Aggie's mother, who married Robert Myers, also from the Norfolk area. The following information was provided by Mrs. Lovie (Bonawell) Marshall (1891-1981), in an interview in 1977 with Kathryn (Drewer) Miles and her son, M.K. Miles. Mrs. Lovie was 85 years old at the time. "There were three girls from an orphanage in Norfolk, VA; Ellen, Aggie and Kate. First, Ellen came to Saxis and married Jim (or John) Linton. Then Aggie came to visit her friend Ellen and married Severn James Crockett. Then Kate came to visit Aggie and she married John Drewer. I would like for some of the young generation today to run into people like she was. I used to stay up there a lot with (her daughter) Janie. She'd come after me every weekend and say, "Miss Bonawell, let Lovie stay with me on Saturday night and come home Sunday morning." A lot of times I didn't want to leave Mama, but it was no getting away. She'd let her children play hide and seek in the back. In that kitchen is a sliding window, I don't know if its there now or not, but she'd let them slide that window back and they'd jump out that window and play hide and seek. She would laugh over it and laugh over it. She'd bake a cake and when that cake was cool, that cake was cut and we all had a piece and either coffee or milk or water or whatever we wanted. Whatever (her son) Milton done, it was perfectly all right. One morning Janie and I were fast asleep. In our face come a whole big cup full of water. All in the bed and all. Janie hollered out, oh my, Milton's thrown a whole cup of water here in this bed and everything's wet. We had to get up. Miss Kate laughed over it and laughed, and she said, without a doubt he must be most mischievous child that ever lived in the world. She put dry things on that bed and told us to get back in there and sleep as long as we wanted. No fussing whatever. He had a knack, he'd get back of me, we'd be playing cards, and he'd get back of me, and grab me by my ankles and I'd think he would kill me, nearly bout. Mr. Johnny Drewer said one night, "consorn" was his word. Consorn if I ain't a gone'a beat that boy nearly to death some of these times. She was a little old woman and sweet. Oh, she had the sweetest face. Everybody loved her, Miss Kate Drewer." The following information was provided by Kate's granddaughter, Evelyn (Lewis) Powell. "Kate's father died when she was very young and her mother was unable to provide for the children. She sent them into homes of friends to live. No one can remember the name of the family in Berkeley, VA, who raised Kate. While living at Berkeley, Kate became best friend with Maggie French, who lived across the road from her. Maggie's father, known as Captain French, was engaged in marine construction. He often came to Saxis on business and Maggie and Kate would come with him. Maggie meet and married Mr. Henry Lewis, who was from Saxis. He inherited Capt. French's business, which is now known as the Norfolk Dredging Company(?). Maggie and Henry Lewis lived in Norfolk, VA. They had a daughter named Berniece who married first, Mr. Vellines. After their divorce she married second, William Fisher, who was from Sanford. They had a general store at US Route 13 and Parksley Road, now known as Fisher's Corner. Maggie also had a daughter named Evelyn, who died at an early age. I was named after her. Another close friend of Kate's was Melissa, who married Mr. Olds. On one of Captain French's business trips, Kate meet John R. Drewer. After knowing John for only three weeks, they planned to be married. She went back to Berkeley and got her clothes and on the train from Cape Charles she wondered if she would know him when the train stopped at Hallwood. She said as soon as she saw him she knew. Although the family that was raising Kate objected to her marriage and disowned her, Kate married John R. Drewer and stayed at Saxis. The family that had raised her did finally visit her at Saxis. She was a tiny woman, under 5 feet tall, weighed 98 pounds and wore a size 2 shoe when she got married. She had a jolly disposition and was an excellent dancer. She said she often danced holes in the soles of her shoes before she married John. She told her children that their feet must belong to the Methodist Church because they couldn't seem to get them off the floor when she tried to teach them how to dance. They built their home in several stages. Their home has since been destroyed, but after John R. and Kate died it became the final home of Neil and Evva Drewer. The seafood business and politics where high on the agenda. They had a lot of friends and every special church meeting would have "protracted" services and the ministers were invited for supper and Kate was the last one to go to church. One time the church was filled to capacity so someone took a chair from the pulpit and sat it in front facing the congregation. Since she was only 4 feet and 10 or 11 inches tall, she was embarrassed to catch herself with her feet crossed swinging her legs. She never sat in a pulpit chair again. She died paralyses." Mrs. Kate Drewer, wife of Mr. John R. Drewer, died on 26 Dec 1920, aged 56 years. She survived a stroke about one hour, survivors were listed (Acc News, 7 Jan 1921).

Birth*circa 1815Ann was born circa 1815 at Accomack Co, VA. The 1850 census puts her birth at 1815, but her 1857 death record puts it at 1818..2,3 
Marriage*circa 1833She married Jabez Tyler Sr. circa 1833. 
Married Namecirca 1833 As of circa 1833,her married name was Tyler. 
Marriage*31 March 1835She married Parker Miles (III), son of John Miles, on 31 March 1835 at Accomack Co, VA. Gilbert Marshall and Jabez Tyler were securities on the M.L.B. of Parker Miles, widow, and Ann Tyler. This Jabez may have been her brother or her father. Her father, Jabez Tyler, is also listed as the father of a David Tyler who married Margaret Simpson in 1827..4 
Married Name31 March 1835 As of 31 March 1835,her married name was Miles. 
Land sold*15 May 1839Ann sold land on 15 May 1839 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that Comfort Chessire & Betsy Tyler for $8 ($4 each) sold to David Tyler all rights, title & interest which we have in the estate of Jabez Tyler Senr. dec'd, both real & personal. Singed: Comfort (X) Chesire & Betsy (X) Tyler. Henry Fletcher & John F. Riley, Justices of the Peace, certify that Comfort Chessire & Betsy Tyler personally appeared before us and willing signed the deed this 11 June 1938. Recorded 15 Jun 1839. (Acc Deeds, 1839-1841, p. 17). On 29 Jun 1839 Parker Miles and wife Ann, sold 73 acres of 365 acres of undivided land in Acc Co formerly belonging to Jabez Tyler Sr., dec'd, to Jabez Tyler for $4.00 (Acc Deeds, 1839-1841, p. 53).. 
Will - Uncle's*13 January 1848Ann was named in her uncle's will on 13 January 1848 at Accomack Co, VA. She was shown as Ann Miles, wife of Parker Miles of Saxes Island, in the will of James Justice of R. He gave her or to her children $200. In a Codicil he also named Virginia & Hetty Mears, daughters of Thomas Mears. Since Thomas Mears had married Catharine Justice, a sister of James of R., it is also assumed that Ann Miles was the daughter or granddaughter of one of his other sisters. After all, Ann's son Jesse Miles' death certificate shows his mother as Ann Justice. Placing her as a granddaughter of his sister Polly Justice is one possibility, but there is no proof other than most of the other options have been eliminated. It is also interesting to note that in his will James Justice repeats the statement "to my 3 children named in this will" three times, implying there may be other children not named in the will..5 
Census w/husband*1850Ann was listed with her husband in the census of in 1850 at Accomack Parish, Acc Co, VA. She was shown as Anna Miles, age 35 in HH#791 headed by Parker Miles, a 51 year old farmer..3

Biography*She may have been named Mary Ann, as her son Noah E. Miles, listed his mother's name as Mary on his marriage record, while some of her other children listed their mother's name as Ann. Her daughter Susan Marshall's death record showed her mother as Nannie Miles. Her son, Jesse T. Miles' death certificate shows his mother's maiden name was Ann Justice which coorlates with will of James Justice of R. who named Ann Miles, wife of Parker Miles of Saxes Island in his will of 1848 and left her or to her children $200. He did not name the relationship to Ann, but it is interesting that in his will James Justice repeats the statement "to my 3 children named in this will" three times, implying there may be other children not named in the will. He was age 43 when he married Sally Conquest. He would have been age 25 when Ann, wife of Parker Miles was born circa 1815. Since she was shown as Ann Tyler when she married Parker Miles in 1835, perhaps she married Jabez Tyler shortly before and therefore had an interst in the real estate that she and Parker Miles sold in 1839.

Birth*30 August 1813Elizabeth was born on 30 August 1813 at Accomack Co, VA.

This is certainly a wide spread of birth dates, and would lead one to question if this is the same person in the census as was named in the prayer book..2

Census w/brother1870Elizabeth was listed with her brother in the census of in 1870 at Accomack Parish, Acc Co, VA. She is shown as Elizabeth Wessels, age 35 (bc 1835) in HH#AT422 headed by Henry Wessels, age 50 and a farmer. Also in the household was William Wessels and his 3 children. (Note: Elizabeth, Henry and William were siblings. As in 1860, her age does not match the 1813 in the Wessells Prayer Book.)4 
Death*8 April 1875Elizabeth died on 8 April 1875 at Accomack Parish, Acc Co, VA, at age 61. She was shown as Eliz. Wessells, age 40, the child of Walter & Polly Wessells, born in Accomack Co, a housekeeper and unmarried. The cause of death was pleurisy. Her brother Henry L. Wessells gave the information. (Note: Her age doesn't match the 1813 in the Wessells Prayer Book.)5

Birth*1843John was born in 1843 at Baltimore, MD. His Virginia Death Certificate shows he was born 1843 and his family Bible shows 1842(?) in Baltimore, MD..2,3 
Biography*1844John Wesley Drewer's death certificate indicates that he was born in Baltimore, MD, in 1847 and died 10 Sep 1912. His age was listed as 69, which would have made his birth 1843. This is a closer match to the 1850 Census information, which showed his age as 9, which would have made his birth 1841. The information on the death certificate was provided by his son, Lloyd Drewer. His place of birth was also listed as Maryland in the 1880 Census. Others say that he and his sister came to Saxis from the Guilford or Cattail area of Acc Co, VA. This is based on the story told by some older members of the Drewer family that as children he and his sister, Rebecca Ann or "Becky," came walking across the marshlands east of Saxis, each with a pillow under their arm. They did not have any adults with them. In 1850, John Drewer, age 9, and his sister Rebecca, age 13, were both living on Saxis with their step-father, William Russell Sr., age 30, and his son, William Russell Jr., age 15, all in the household of Gillet Marshall. William Russell had married John and Rebecca's widowed mother, Susan, in 1849. Their Acc Co Marriage License Bond showed her as "Susan Drury, widow of Drury" with Gilbert Marshall and Richard S. Taylor listed as securities. The name "Drury" has been found listed among Irish pedigrees, which is further substantiated by the middle names of two of John's sons, John "Riley" and Lloyd "McDuffy" Drewer. After John was married he and his family lived in the home at Saxis across the "new lane" from the Drewer family cemetery. After his death this was the home of his son, Lloyd, and after Lloyd's death, the home of his son, Claude. The family cemetery was set aside form a portion of his property. He was a waterman and farmer. He was known as very patriotic and a christian gentleman. He requested that the "Stars and Stripes," the U.S. flag, be flown form the top of his tombstone once a year on the 4th of July. This was done by a member of the family, usually his youngest son, Marvin Drewer, until his death in 1967. Mrs. Olevia Dennis, a Saxis resident, is quoted as saying "if Mr. John Drewer told me the sky will fall tomorrow, then I fully expect that it would." This attested to her faith in his character. He acquired the property on the east side of Saxis, bordering the marsh where his home stood. He raised his family here. He also purchased the land he farmed including several lots across the county road and westward to the shoreline. He gave each child a lot along the "new" lane which he marked off for their use. He sold others to his grandchildren. The following information was provided by Mrs. Lovie (Bonawell) Marshall (1891-1981) in an interview in 1977 with Kathryn (Drewer) Miles and her son M.K. Mrs. Lovie was 85 years old at the time. "Now what my mother said she could remember of them was that they come, there weren't no road here, walking across the marsh with their things wrapped up into a table cloth or a sheet or something and a stick run through it on their back. They saw these two children coming across the marsh and they knew that there were deep holes there and people went and guided them. When they came in they had nowhere to go and they told them that nobody lived in that house and to go and live in there. So they went there and lived. Aunt Becky was older than Mr. John Drewer was. When he got old enough he went out and was quite lucky in his work. He bought that whole piece of land where Minnie's house is at and all of that, clear to the shore. I think Mama said for $250. Well nobody wanted it and he had a right to buy it. And he gave all of his children lots off of it. Mr. Drewer gained in wealth, he was right well to do, and was a good christen man. When you seen him coming into church, with a flower in the back of him, you could tell he was going to address the Sunday school. He was a waterman and farmer. I'll tell you what a good man Mr. Drewer was. My sister said that if she was going to die instead of anybody else having her funeral she'd want Mr. Drewer. When his wife, Miss Liza Jane Drewer, was paralyzed they went after him out on the water and he come-a-shore. He didn't go in the room where she was at, he went in the room towards going up the outlet there, and got down on his knees. They said he prayed for 2 hours and when the doctors tried her temperature she was paralyzed. He said, she's going to survive this, and she did. Now she talked a little bit thick tongued, but leaving out that, she got all right for a while. He had that home built that he lived into. He lived where Hidla Drewer lives. His will, written on 18 July 1912, states: I, John Wesley Drewer of Saxis Island, Virginia being feeble in body but sound in mind and feeling, that I would like to leave my estate after my death in a business like shape, in such as I have always tried to keep may affairs in, make this my last Will. To enable me to divide my Real Estate intelligently among my heirs I have employed the County Surveyor to survey and make plat of the main body of my land on Saxis Island and this survey and plat is hereby made a part of my will. The Grave Yard as given on the plat is reserved for the benefit of the Drewer Family. (1) I give to my son John R. Drewer Lots 1, 16, 17, but the same is to pay to my wife Elisa J. Drewer the sum of $63.50 on account of the larger size of the above lots. (2) I give to my son Lloyd M. Drewer Lots 2, 15 and 19. (3) I give to my daughter Maud E. Taylor Lots 3, 14 and 20. (4) I give to my son Wm. Cleveland Drewer Lots 4, 13 and 21. (5) I give to my daughter Mary J. Linton Lots 5, 12 and 22. (6) I give to my son Harvey A. Drewer Lots 6, 7 and 8, but the same shall pay to my wife Elisa J. Drewer the sum of $38.50 on account of the higher valuation of said Lots. (7) I give to my son Marvin T. Drewer Lots 9, 10 and 11, but the same shall pay to my wife Elisa J. Drewer the sum of $103 on account of the higher valuation of said Lots. (8) I leave Lot #18 to be sold to the highest bidder among my seven children for a sum of not less than $100.00, the purchase price to go to my wife Eliza J. Drewer. (9) All of my Real Estate on the North side of the County Road not disposed of before this by Deed and not shown on the plat I give unto all of my seven children, the same to be sold and money to be equally divided between them. (10) I give to my wife Elisa J. Drewer the Home Place for life and after her death to my son Lloyd M. Drewer, but to him only in consideration of a sum of money equal to 6/7 of the actual value of the place, said value to be ascertained by three appraisers chosen by a majority of my heirs and the money to be divided among my other six children. (11) Should my son Lloyd M. Drewer be unable or not willing to meet the above obligation within one year after the death of my wife or one year after my death, should I be the longest liver, another one of my heirs shall have the same privilege to purchase the Home Place and should not one of them be able or willing to do so, then the same shall be put up at Public Auction and the purchase money be equally divided between them. (12) I also give to my wife Elisa J. Drewer all my personnel property, house hold and kitchen furniture, my half interest in the Canoe "Nancy Hanks" and the whole of the old canoe called "Edward." (13) I also give to my wife Eliza J. Drewer all notes due me now outstanding as follows: from John R. Drewer due me $150.00; from Lloyd M. Drewer due me $75.00; from W. Cleve. Drewer due me $75.00; from Mary J. Linton due me $75.00; from Harvey A. Drewer due me $75.00; from Peace Milburn balance of note and all cash money after paying all my bills and burying expenses. (14) And should my wife Eliza J. Drewer leave this earth before I do, then in event of my death all property given to her by this Will, excepting the Home Place shall be divided equally among my children. 15) Whereas my son Harvey A. Drewer has by far the largest interest in the oyster planting grounds owned by us I hereby appoint him as sole manager of the same and not one of the other heirs shall have the right to work on or take oysters form our grounds without his knowledge and consent and he shall, after payment of first cost and all expenses, distribute the proceeds of my share equally among my seven children excepting however the ground sub-leased to Mrs. E.A.F. Fletcher, who receives one fourth of all the profits after payment of the first cost of $400.00 has been made to her, the balance of said profits to be equally divided among my children. The oysters planted by me in partnership with my son John R. Drewer however shall be handled by him and my share of the profits be equally divided among my children. (16) I hereby appoint my sons John R. and Harvey A. Drewer executor of this my last Will without Bond or Remuneration for their trouble excepting actual expenses. Witnesses: George N. Weaver, James T. Weaver and Fred. E. Ruediger.

In 1840 there were 5 young males in the household, 2 under 5, 1 age 5-10, 1 age 10-15 and 1 age 15-20. Three young females age 0-5, 5-10, and 10-15. These ages indicated Aaron Marshall had children of marriageable age before 1850, possibly 2 sons and 2 daughters, however, the 1850 Census indicates only one son and one daughter were missing from the household. Aaron was a farmer in 1850, age 58, on Saxis Island. His wife Tinny was 50. He had evidently died before 1853, when his mother Patience died and his name was not included among her surviving children. There were 3 Acc Co deeds executed jointly by Aaron and his brother Zachariah Marshall in which they were the purchasers of 50 acres on Saxis Island. The first was on 2 Sep 1826 when they had a mortgage for $120 for 50 acres to Revel Lewis and George Croswell. The land was bounded on the Northeast by marsh of the Sandford Charity, South by Nathan Linton, West by Pocomoke Sound Shore, with all stock consisting of oxen, cows, calfs and etc. (Acc Deeds 1825-1827, p.508) Also on that same date there was a deed from Samuel Marshall, Senior and Triffinah, his wife, to Aaron and Zachariah for $125 for 50 acres on Saxis, bounded on the South by Nathan Linton, West and North by Pocomoke Sound and East by Sanford Charity land (Acc Deeds 1827-1828, p. 347) The third was on 17 Aug 1830 when Revel Lewis and George Croswell released Aaron and Zachariah Marshall from their mortgage on the above land (Acc Deed 1830-1832, p.83.) 
Census head*1850Aaron was listed as a head of household in the census of in 1850 at Accomack Parish, Acc Co, VA. He was shown as Aaron Marshall the head of HH#802, a 58 year old farmer with real estate valued at $500. Listed with him were the following Marshalls: Tinny, age 50; Thomas, a 22 year old laborer with real estate valued at $210; John, a 21 year old laborer; James, a 19 year old oysterman; Eliza, age 17; Jane, age 14; and Aaron, age 10. Also listed was Avery Ellis, a 24 year old laborer..5 
Death*before 1853Aaron died before 1853.

Birth*circa 1810Susan was born circa 1810 at Accomack Co, VA.1 
Biography*Her son's, John Wesley Drewer's, death certificate indicates that his mother's name was Susan Simpson. John's sister, Rebecca, listed her parents as Susan "Drewer" on her first marriage record and as Susan "Druer" on her second marriage record. The listing of only a mother on a marriage record usually indicated that the father was deceased. Rebecca also listed her place of birth as Baltimore, MD, on her first marriage record. In the 1880 Census, her son, John, listed his mother's place of birth as Virginia. Murphy's Baltimore City Directory for 1845, p. 37, lists a Mrs. Susan "Druer", 176 S. Caroline St." Her listing in the directory could imply that her husband was either not living or not living with her at the time, since directories normally listed the name of the head of the household. This is also a different street address then the one listed for John "Drewer" in the 1840-41 Directory. The 1850 Census of Maryland does not list any "Drewers." The Acc Co marriage record of Susan "Drury", widow of "Drury," and William Russell in Jan 1849, which listed Gilbert Marshall and Richard S. Taylor, securities, together with the 1850 Acc Co census, indicates that Susan's children, John and Rebecca "Drewer", were living with their step- father, William Russell, in the household of Gillett Marshall on Saxis in 1850. Perhaps Susan had died between Jan 1849 and the 1850 census. Her estimated birth date fits well with those of the females in the house hold of Revel Simpson in 1810 and 1820 and with those of Rebecca Simpson in 1830. She also named a daughter Rebecca, which could have been after her mother Rebecca. She also returned from Baltimore, as a widow, to the area where Revel and Rebecca Simpson lived to remarry in 1849. 
Census w/parents*1810Susan was listed with her parents in the census of 1810 at Accomack Parish, Acc Co, VA. She could have been one of the 4 females under age 10 in the house hold headed by Revel Simpson..2 
Census w/parents1820Susan was listed with her parents in the census of 1820 at Accomack Parish, Acc Co, VA. She could have been one of the 3 females age 10-16 in the house hold headed by Revel Simpson..3

Anecdote1907 Michael Lewis reports that Aunt May died a few years before he was born, although our family often talked of her. Her only surviving child, Mabel White Piniecki, was very present in our family. I don't want to sound pretentious or judgmental, but May's husband, my Great Uncle Charles White, was the favorite son of a wealthy Baltimore hat manufacturer and merchant. They were a "society" family of sorts in Baltimore and their activities were covered in the press. Charles traveled the South representing the company. We all wonder how he met Aunt May. We assume that it was while he was on the road. We know she was a great beauty. I have a picture that I think is her as a young woman…I am not sure. OMG, she is out of the park lovely, if this is her. They married in Norfolk, not Baltimore. That would have been unusual in my family. We were very, very Catholic. I don't know if the Griffins were Catholic? I know the McCourts were Catholics. Anyway, there has always been this question of how this rich Catholic boy married an orphan from Norfolk. It was unusual. What is important is the record that shows what grit your relative, my Aunt May, possessed. I have a news article, saved by my aunt, that reports that Aunt May went to court to assert that her 2nd husband, August Emmerich, could not dictate where she went to church. Also, when my GG Grandfather, Samuel White, died in 1907, he left his entire estate to my branch of the family, excluding Aunt May and her children. At that time, she was a widow of Samuel's son, Charles, and the mother of three of Samuel's living grandchildren. When May and her children were left out of the White estate in 1907, she contested the will and went to court. She claimed Michael Lewis' aunt Marie Martin, had undue influence on Sam White and that he was not well. While she lost, that still showed a lot of grit for a woman in a time when they didn't even have the vote. Michael Lewis' family won. But what is so strange, is that there were no hard feelings. Everyone behaved as if nothing had happened. Our family continued to live in the White mansion and Aunt May and her children were always part of our family. When I was growing up, she and her husband George would visit us in our home in New York State. From the look of it, your relative, my Aunt May, was a strong, beautiful, and resilient woman. She survived. When she died, my aunt allowed her burial in New Cathedral next to her first husband, Charles White, her infant child, and her teenage daughter, Marie Gladys White. My own grandmother and uncle are in this lot.5

Biography*The assumption here is that the Lorenzo Dow Marshall, who, according to Acc Co Births, was born in 1886 to William F. and Ellen, is the same as Lourenzo Marshall, aged 9, in the 1900 Census; Randy L., aged 18, in the 1910 Census; and Lourzia, age 25, in the 1920 Census. However, since Lorenzo Dow would have been 14 instead of 9 in 1900, 24 instead of 18 in 1910, and 34 instead of 25 in 1920, it could be assumed that Lorenzo Dow died young and another son was named Lorenzo, who would have been a few years younger. Mr. Lanzy W. Marshall of Saxis died on 18 Mar 1959. Survivors were listed (Pen. Ent., 19 Mar 1959).
