!A Brashear(s) Family History, Vol 3, page 106 by Charles Brashear: notes wedding date for Delilah or Adelia MAY as 26 Dec 1863. Stipulates that in the Obit of 14 May 1909 from the Harriman Record says "Brashears, Samuel, of Harriman, RFD 3, Clax Gap. Several from our community attended the funeral of Uncle Samuel Brashears Tuesday near Kreis." I think incorrectly estimates the death day as being the Tuesday 11th May was the funeral day (burial day) but probably not the day he died.
