Thank you for answering my query! The Christian DRYER that you mention in your notes must be a different Christian DRYER because I have Annetta on the 1860 census as a widow!! She is also on the 1870 census and then on the 1880 census in Chicago where she does die in December 1888!! Where did you get the dates for them?? I just found Annetta's death on the new Illinois Statewide Death Index for deaths BEFORE 1916!!!
Laura F. DREYER is the daughter of Edward W.R. and Mary Clair MUSSELMAN DREYER. She is born in March of 1871 in Freeport, Stephenson Co., Illinois. She married Chester BRUBAKER on October 2, 1895. They have two children; Edward Chester, b. 9/15/1896, d. April 1975, and Muriel Clair b. 8/21/1898. The family moves to Michigan and Muriel marries Otto V. Brantley. She dies 2/28/1998.... I don't have a death date for Laura, only that she dies after 1947 when she is mentioned in her sisters will......Her husband, Chester, dies November 9, 1940.....
Hope this is helpful! Wish I knew more!
