Dear juley thankyou so much for your reply finally i am making progress in this search, it has taken me a long time trying to gather peices of information when alot of it is not factual. After applying this message we did manage to find more accurate info as i hired a private detective, and we also asked other family members. My name is carly brewer and i am 22, gordon has spoken to my sister sharon who is 30 we also have an older brother tony 32 we all live in swindon. My dad is michael john brewer he was born in lincoln in 1945 and has a sister jennifer who was born 1948. My nan or should i say our nan was married to william, the story gets abit confusing from here apparently nan used to mess arounnd when william was away when all the yanks were here during the war, and believe that they were devorced because of cruelty but this all hearsay Im not interested in who hit who and what went on its each to ones own. My dad remembers pat worked in the local butchers and that john at 16 had just got his red beret for the army. It seems very odd how your dad and john dont remember them because my dad is younger and he remembers these things. I am very sorry to hear about your sad loss of pat obviosly we didnt know and also the very sad loss of your dads partner this must be a very hard time for you all I or anyone in my family wish to cause any inconvienience or any upset as your dad sounds like a lovely man you all sound very nice, but as you said this is very intriguing as well as scary but exciting all wrapped into 1. goodness knows what our fathers must be thinking. My sister sharon is abit pushey and has phoned yor dad several times already if she is annoying him get him to tell her, she doesnt mean any harm just over excited. there is so much i want to ask you alot of these peices are jummbled and need fitting together but hopefully between us all we can start sorting it after all we are family. Sadly nan everlyn grace passed away in 1997 she was a nice lady and never spoke about her past maybe she was embaressed i dont know, we never knew your dad or any of them lived in childrens homes and dont know if nan knew we were all under the impression that william took them off her. my dad was very unsure of all of this as the start as he said he feels abit embarressed that she bought him and auntie jen up and not them. Any way my email address is carly-brewer@msn.com i live in swindon and my home telephone number is 01793 721594. i dont know what you meant when you said i could contact you at the inforem, i also know youve left your number are you sure its ok for me to ring im not as forward as my sister, but i would love to talk and maybe oneday meet you and your dad. Please get in touch soon and if its not before christmas have a good one and a very happy new year. take care love and best wishes carly xxxx

Hello,
I found this message today after Sharon called my father (Gordon Brewer) this week. Obviously we did not know you were looking for him - hence finding the search nowI think dad said he would be in touch and he will in the new year. He lost his dear partner this week and he would not be able to cope with anything else at the moment. I am very confused as the message above does not tie in with what he told me.Dad has no recollection of his mother at all.His sister Pat (my auntie) died in the 1980s from breast cancer. My dad has two children - me - Im Juley and Im 37 and my brother Andrew whos 42. My brother also has 3 children. We are all intrigued.
You can speak to me in the interim if you wish. I live in Sheffield and my number is 0114 250 6441.
As far as we know there is no-one called Margaret. Dad has a brother called John Lesley who lives in Lincoln - he had bright ginger hair when he was young, Dad was dark (when he had hair) and Auntie Pat was jet black. They are all short, especially Dad who struggles to hit 5ft 1in I think
Grandad (dads dad) died in 1995 in Lincoln, but never talked about dads mum so the questions were just never asked Im afraid.
Dad, John and Pat lived in childrens homes for a time while grandad was in the forces (not sure if they were all together) and I seem to remember dad saying that one home was particularly bad but they all turned out nice decent people. Uncle John is married and they have a lovely daughter Debra and she has 3 children. Auntie Pat had 3 children I think (Not been in touch for years)1 girl and 2 boys I think.
I cant think of anything more to say at the moment but Im curious to see what this lady looked like - after all she would be my grandma

Take care and thank you for getting in touch.

Juley
