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 date of death for Edward Gantt Waring, BUT it seems possible / probable that this might 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 . . .
