The Edward Gantt Waring and Catherine Waring mentioned in the above book-clip are the parents of Elizabeth Lemaire Beale nee Waring . . . who is the mother of Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire (1843-1876) . . . who is Berta Mary's mother.
This book-clip gives 12 July 1867 as the death date for Edward Gantt Waring, but it is possible that this may actually be the date of death of his widow, Catherine Ann Waring nee Waring. This geneablogger has been unable to locate any information on Edward after 1846 when he is listed on the Tax List for Liberty County, Texas. He is not enumerated with his wife on the 1850 census in Liberty County, nor is he listed with her on the 1860 census in St. Mary's County, Maryland.
