The family surname was Rees. There use to be a road
that shows on the 1897 Plat Book for Wayne Co, Iowa
that ran south of Lewisburg (it's now closed) and the W.W.
Rees family lived about 1 3/4 miles from Lewisburg.
They lived on the former John Sinclair farm. As for the
saloon in Lewisburg I have no idea whether it existed or
not. The twins were born in 1894 so the event would have
to have happened after 1910 when they were young men.
That is if the event ever happened.
