My relation to the Geiger family follows: Simon Peter Geiger > John Geiger > Catherine Geiger Brower > Isaac
Brower > Idella Brower Hart > Maude Hart Dryden > Marian Idella Dryden Kammerer > Kent Kammerer > Britt
I added [#] bracketed numbers to the document in order to facilitate reading the generations documented by the
writer. Spelling and order of names are of the writer, ex. Peter Simon/Simon Peter, and Berlin/Berlein.
I do NOT possess the document "Sketch of David Brower, Ancestors and Descendants" and would very much
like to have a copy!
