Georgene found this on the internet: A digital book with drawings by Will Vawter.
http://books.google.com/books?hl=en&id=nNsQAAAAYAAJ&dq=vawter&printsec=front

And....
In the "Book" section, there is a journal and other information pertaining to a trip to Oregon
in a covered wagon. In 1851, Philemon Vawter Crawford kept a journal of the trip and several
Vawters were in the "train". Now we know that "double team" is not just a basketball term.

The newsletters from 1977 thru 2015 are on this website, as well as the Grace Vawter Bicknell
book, “The Vawter Family in America” with the allied families of Branham, Crawford, Wise, Lewis, Stribling, Glover and Moncrief.
The Grace Bicknell book starts with the first Vawter to come to America, as far as she knew. The book was published in 1905 and she did a superb job, without the internet or a computer.

One of our genealogist cousins, Georgene Jurgensen, has done years of research and we include her work on our website as well. She has made some corrections to the Bicknell book and added an abundance of information.

If you have trouble finding your connection to the family lines listed here, please let us hear from you and maybe we can help.

Other sources include Shirley Byler's The Family of Albert and Josie Vawter, census and land records and "family tradition". The cousin charts and obituaries from the newsletters also had helpful information.
