Mabel Brawley - Great Grandmother

Mabel Brawley of Athens, Ohio was my Grandfather Carl Brawley's mother, and an adopted daughter and family member to Henry Brawley who adopted her at a very young age. I have found only one reference in my "Baby Book" to her parent/father being George Brawley, Henry Brawley's brother, who also had adopted her.
I could not find any documentation other than census records showing she lived with Henry/family and her adoption was noted there.
I am desperately trying to put together/validate Mabel's parental legacy/connection, and or confirm George Brawley being her father. I have been at an impasse for some time/years now.
Can you help me in any way with my challenge.

James Hoisington
No, I called the neighbor who owns the property and asked her if she knew. Not too much sleuthing involved. Now to research James Hoisington!

RE: Old headstone
I called the historical society yesterday and their genealogy stuff is in storage until their grand opening mid-April. If their were possibly james' here in Ames at one point that is definitely something! I don't know how much more I can find until next month. I'll let you know!

RE: Old headstone
As far as 19814, that address does not exist currently on my road. Brawley Rd in Ames is about 2 miles long. Most of the houses are in the first mile and a half. "Old Brawley" and the current edition are two different roads and I've yet to trace the whole road back. It may disappear in some spots. The old remains of a house in the woods are hard to understand how someone got there but I guess no cars changes things too! Providing we don't get too much snow I intend to go to the historical society tomorrow and see if they can help identify anything for me. As far as wether or not this is a Brawley, I don't know. It could be a first or last name tho it would be strange if there was a James from Bern all alone in the forest in Ames!! I wondered if it could be a baby? It's quite a ways from the old house but possible the they are from the same people. We found some bottles at the house: an old tinning fluid bottle from the 1920-30s a ball jar (broken) patented 1858 and a broken platter with a family crest on the bottom but it is chipped. You can only make out "bone china" and "England". So I'm not sure how long that house was occupied. At least two different time period bricks for the chimney, even an Athens block print down there but I don't know when Athens block began. I will keep you informed on what I find out. I would think that is old Brawley property back there just based on location but I will know more tomorrow.
Thanks for your time Anita!

Allan Eddy/Sophia Beardsley
Thanks so much for the info on Sophia! I've updated Fred Eddy's bio (#156599011). I noticed Allan's dates on Sophia's memorial- do you have more info on the Eddys? There's a rather strange Eddy monument (no names, no dates) in the Whitney Cemetery that I'd assumed was for Allen & his second wife Harriet but as I had no death info for either I was uncertain about creating memorials for them. Send me a message via email if you have a chance with any further details. Thanks, Joe.
