I've never run across Obidah; do you have the names of any of his siblings? It would be great to see if we can't figure out how everyone connects.
Re the marriage: Got the infor from the Dec. 10, 1858 per the Sonoma County Journal, Petaluma
William and Virilla Brians lived in Guerneville. They had nine children, six born in Missouri - and three in Sonoma County.
If you go to Druids Cemetery, you are likely to find all the Brians and may find some Adams (Virilla was the daughter of Alfred Adams).
Here are ones that I have death dates for:
William Brians died September 18, 1887
Virilla / Virillia Brians died April 07, 1886
Here are some I don't have death dates for:
William Joshua Brians
Virilla Evaline Brians
Thanks for responding. Any Brians information is most welcome. I'll be glad to share what I have.
