Re: Elizabeth Schermerhorn m. William Hawver

Classification: Query
Surnames: Schermerhorn, Hawver, Johnson,
I'm thinking that Elizabeth may have been a widow of William Hawver, then married Casper/Jasper Schermerhorn. The Schermerhorn genealogy referred to her as "MRS." Elizabeth Hawver. I aslo found a William Hawver buried at the Deyoe cemetery in Lexington. On the 1865 census Elizabeth was married 2 times.
