Daniel A. BREWER was born 31 Aug 1784 in KY and died 9 April 1881 in Coatesville, Hendricks, IN. Daniel married Nancy SMITH.

The family history on Daniel A. BREWER SR. (at least in our branch) had him born August 31 1784 in Germany or Holland, and that he’d moved to Putnam Co. Indiana. This account was based on a bio in Weik’ History of Putnam County, Indiana.

“Within the next two years (from 1826) the population was increased by the arrival of…Daniel BREWER…Among the old settlers who have died within the past thirty years were…and Daniel BREWER of Coatsville. The last named was born in Holland on August 31, 1782, and came to Kentucky when two years old. From that state he moved to Putnam County, where he lived until almost a hundred years old.”

Weik’s History of Putnam County, Indiana, B.F. Bower & Co. Publishers, pages
170-171

Well, don’t believe everything in print, for it seems that Daniel A. BREWER was the 2nd son and 2nd of 6 children born to John (Johannas) BREWER, who was born in New Jersey, and Jane VAN ARSDALE also born in New Jersey. John was about 23 and Jane about 27 when Daniel was born. The BREWER family had been in America for multiple generations.

Another peculiar bit of misinformation occurring in this generation is that in the family history Nancy SMITH was originally given as Nancy GARNETT (by Pansy BREWER NOYES) and Nancy GURNET by another relative. It was eventually found that she was Nancy SMITH, but with at least with some of her children she went by the maiden name of GARNETT or GURNET, which was a brick wall in research that no one could get past (well, no wonder). Some scandal or something had already been hinted at by relatives, Nancy reports, but what could it have been? It has been wondered if she was previously married to a GARNETT and, if there was a scandal, it had something to do with this–but she was married to Daniel BREWER under her maiden name of SMITH, and it seems if her using the name of GARNETT was because of something she preferred to not have known then this had something to do with her being a SMITH. Besides, it seems fairly peculiar that she would have presented herself for posterity as a GARNETT if a previous marriage was what she wanted to hide.

Nancy Benton writes:

The “cousin” who gave me the family sheet of Daniel which listed his mother as “Nancy Gurnet” said there was some scandal about her, but she didn’t know what it was. In some of mother’s writings I found mention of Nancy Garnett as wife of Daniel.

In corresponding with other researchers (including Steve Brewer and Debbie Schmidt) I found that Nancy Smith who md. Daniel Brewer in 1805 in Mercer County was mentioned as a daughter in George Smith’s probate records. George had been married previously and had five children before marrying Nancy’s mother and having six more.

Isom: “Marriage Bonds and Consents, Mercer Co., KY 1786-1820, p. 13–“Daniel Brewer and Nancy Smith; Consent of Mary Smith for her daughter, same date, witnessed by Narney Smock and Abraham Brewer.

His will (Missouri 1810) mentions his daughter Rebecca married to Samuel Bruer (Brewer) and Doras married to Alexander Varardsale (Vanarsdall). Mercer County marriage records give George Smith as father of these two women. The will
packet contains a letter from a DANIEL BREWER, son-in-law of George Smith, who was resident in Shelby County, Kentucky. In the will, George gives Nancy as yet unwed, and yet she had married in 1805.

The Court Record hasn’t been viewed but there was a case between Mary SMITH (Nancy’s mother) versus her father and his son George W. SMITH Jr. in 1801. By 1802 George Sr.’s name appears in Saint Louis, which is a while before his death.

As it is, Nancy SMITH, born 4 December 1785, was actually the daughter of George Washington SMITH Sr. and his second wife, Mary.

Supporting documentation is given that she is mentioned in her father’s probate records. And the Marriage Bonds and Consents Mercer county, KY 1786-1820, by Isom, p. 13, shows Consent of Mary Smith for her daughter, same date, witnessed by Narney Smock and Abraham Brewer.

These revelations were made during exchanges on the Rootsweb Brewer Mailing List 1999. Steve BREWER noted that Nancy’s marriage bond only has her mother Mary listed as giving consent, whereas one would normally find a father or guardian listed, but that Debbie SCHMIDT, another researcher, reported that George SMITH died before 1810 in the St. Louis Territory, Missouri.

Daniel A. BREWER Sr. and Nancy SMITH had 9 children.

Children:

1) John b. 1806 d. unknown m. Lucinda HANKINS on 27 Oct 1829 in Shelby Co. KY. (Vicki Deer writes at Genforum, Hankins forum, that Lucinda’s father was William HANKINS and her mother was Mary “Polly” HEDDEN. Mabry Benson wrote in that another child was Gilbert who married American ARMSTRONG, sister to William F. Armstrong, from Shelby Co. KY, moved to Hendricks Co. IN, next to Putnam, and married in 1846.

2) Mary b. 1808 m. Nathaniel STRAUGHN b. abt. 1810 KY

3) Jane b. 1810 m. David HUNTER b. abt. 1814 KY. (Jerusha SMITH, sister of Nancy SMITH, wife of Daniel, married a John HUNTER. Susannah HEDDEN, daughter of Abraham HEDDEN and Charity MUNSON, married Charles HUNTER abt. 1808. Anne HEDDEN, another daughter, married Carter HUNTER 1818 KY. M. Christiansen, wrote into Genforum May 14, 1999 that Henry HUNTER SR., of Shelby Co. KY, married to Ann (deed 17 May 1796) gave as children: Jemima m. Jonathan P. BRADY 23 May 1800, Shelby Co. KY; Polly m. Major WILLS, Oct. 1807, Shelby Co. KY, Henry Jr. m. Sally ECCLES 6 Jan 1807 in Merder, John m. Jerusha SMITH 1. Sep. 1804 in Mercer, died by 1818; Charles m. Susy HEDDEN 2 Jan 1818 in Shelby Co. KY; Carter m. Anne HEDDEN 15 February 1818 in Shelby. A Karen Perry wrote in response that Jemima HUNTER., b. 1783 TN or NC, first married Jonathon P. BRADY, then married Moses R. D. SMITH 28 May 1808 in Knox Co. TN. Karen Perry writes also that Henry HUNTER, b. 1749 in Rowan Co. NC, was a son of Charles HUNTER Sr. and Mary of Rowan Co. NC.)

4) George b. 1813

5) Charity b. 1815 m. Jesse VANCLEAVE b. abt. 1813 KY married January 11, 1839 Putnam Co. IN View Indiana marriage database. (William HEDDEN married Rachel VAN CLEAVE. Charity, sister of Daniel Levi BREWER, married a Jesse VAN CLEAVE.)

6) Jerusha b. 1818 m. Alexander HODGE April 4 1838 Putnam Co. IN.

7) Garret b. 1820 m. Maria LUNTSFORD b. abt. 1810 KY, married December 9 1841 Putnam Co. IN. View Indiana marriage database. (LUNSFORDS are in the 1850 and 1860 census near the BREWERS.)

8) Daniel Levi b. 1823 or 1827 m. Catherine HEDDEN b. 21 Feb 1822, KY, married March 30 1843 Putnam Co. IN

9)Nancy b. 1826 to 1827 m. James COOPER, 23 Dec. 1860 Putnam Co. IN.

After the death of Nancy, Daniel married Charity BRIDGES.

The burial place of Daniel is unknown. The Mt. Carmel Cemetery shows his wife, Nancy and Nathaniel STRAUGHAN and Mary Polly BREWER, his wife. Daniel isn’t shown. He is perhaps buried with Charity, who burial place also unknown.

Events


1. Birth: 1784 Aug 31.
Daniel A. is given by the family genealogy as born in Kentucky, but the
history of Conewago and the migration to Kentucky of the old Dutch
settlers indicates that he was born instead in Conewago, York County,
Pennsylvania.

2. Migration: Cir 1786, , , Kentucky. (4)
Given by Weik’s History of Putnam County Indiana as having migrated with
his parents at the age of two to Kentucky. The initial migration from
Conewago occurred 1780, in which his Uncle Abraham had taken part, so
1786 seems a plausible date.

Carter HUNTER, living next door, was married to Ann HEDDEN b. abt. 1802,
daughter of Abraham HEDDEN and Charity MUNSON. Another sister of hers,
Susannah, married a Charles HUNTER abt. 1818. Their brother, Gilbert
HEDDEN, was father of William, father of Catherine HEDDEN who will marry
Daniel Levi BREWER.

Jerusha SMITH, a sister of Nancy SMITH BREWER, married a John HUNTER.

Another sister of Ann HEDDEN HUNTER and Susannah HEDDEN HUNTER was yet
another Catherine (b. abt. 1784) who marries a Lazarous TILLEY. Their
daughter, Ann, b. 1812 in Shelby Co. KY, will marry a John HEDDEN, son of
Samuel, son of Abraham HEDDEN and Charity MUNSON. Another child of
Catherine HEDDEN TILLEY and Lazarous TILLEY is Abraham M. TILLEY who will
marry a Charity HEDDEN, daughter of Samuel, son of Abraham and Charity
HEDDEN. A number of TILLEYs and HEDDENS will also migrate from Shelby Co.
KY to Putnam Co. IN.

Lazarous TILLY b. 17 Jan 1787 in NC, wife of Catherine HEDDEN, was
perhaps a brother of a man named Joel TILLEY, b. 1765, who married a
Nancy Elizabeth HARRIS, both perhaps sons of Lazarus TILLY b. abt. 1744
in VA, died 1814 in Shelby Co. KY, who married an Elizabeth. The grandson
of Joel and Nancy Elizabeth HARRIS, Joel A. TILLEY, b. 1831, applied to the Guion Miller Commission in an attempt
to claim funds appropriated by Act of Congress approved June 30, 1906 in
favor of the Eastern Cherokees (Guion Miller Application No. 40846). Joel
A. Tilley said his grandmother Elizabeth Harris was a daughter of William
Harris who he said was thought to be 1/2 Cherokee Indian. The Guion
Miller Commission rejected his claim, but it is still interesting.

Daniel’s household thus shows 2 males 5 to 10 (Daniel Levi and Garret), 1
male 15 to 20 (George), 1 male 40 to 50 (Daniel A.), 1 female under 5
(Nancy), 2 females 10 to 15 (Jerusha and Charity), 1 female 15 to 20
(Jane), 1 female 20 to 30 (Mary), 1 female 40 to 50 (Nancy SMITH
BREWER).

Carter HUNTER, living next door, was married to Ann HEDDEN b. abt. 1802,
daughter of Abraham HEDDEN and Charity MUNSON. Another sister of hers,
Susannah, married a Charles HUNTER abt. 1818. Their brother, Gilbert
HEDDEN, was father of William, father of Catherine HEDDEN who will marry
Daniel Levi BREWER.

Jerusha SMITH, a sister of Nancy SMITH BREWER, married a John HUNTER.

Another sister of Ann HEDDEN HUNTER and Susannah HEDDEN HUNTER was yet
another Catherine (b. abt. 1784) who marries a Lazarous TILLEY. Their
daughter, Ann, b. 1812 in Shelby Co. KY, will marry a John HEDDEN, son of
Samuel, son of Abraham HEDDEN and Charity MUNSON. Another child of
Catherine HEDDEN TILLEY and Lazarous TILLEY is Abraham M. TILLEY who will
marry a Charity HEDDEN, daughter of Samuel, son of Abraham and Charity
HEDDEN. A number of TILLEYs and HEDDENS will also migrate from Shelby Co.
KY to Putnam Co. IN.

Lazarous TILLY b. 17 Jan 1787 in NC, wife of Catherine HEDDEN, was
perhaps a brother of a man named Joel TILLEY, b. 1765, who married a
Nancy Elizabeth HARRIS, both perhaps sons of Lazarus TILLY b. abt. 1744
in VA, died 1814 in Shelby Co. KY, who married an Elizabeth. The grandson
of Joel and Nancy Elizabeth HARRIS, Joel A. TILLEY, b. 1831, applied to the Guion Miller Commission in an attempt
to claim funds appropriated by Act of Congress approved June 30, 1906 in
favor of the Eastern Cherokees (Guion Miller Application No. 40846). Joel
A. Tilley said his grandmother Elizabeth Harris was a daughter of William
Harris who he said was thought to be 1/2 Cherokee Indian. The Guion
Miller Commission rejected his claim, but it is still interesting.

NOTE: A “Paul” at the Smith Genforum board mentions another SMITH in the
Putnam Co. area who, having a son named Hadden, may be a possible link to
Nancy SMITH. “Jacob SMITH,using that name on the 1860, & 1870 census, was
called Isaac SMITH in the 1850 census. He m. Nancy WILSON in 1825, in
Washington Co IN. she was b. ~1807 in KY. They lived in Putnam Co. IN and
had children Minerva, Hadden (or Haddon), Margaret, and Elihu. I am
looking for Jacobs parents.” He also gives,at the Hadden forum, “Susannah
HADDEN/HADDON, m. James WILSON in 1805, in Franklin Co. KY. Later they
were in Putnam Co. IN. I am looking for the parents of this James WILSON,
or children of this pair.”

William G. Cutler’s “History of the State of Kansas” relates the
following on Osage Mission:


Previous to the organization of a town company or the laying out of a town site two buildings had been erected here, one by L. P. Foster & Co., a log one, in which a store was opened and managed by the “Morgan boys,” and a framebuilding erected by S. A. Williams, of Fort Scott, in which his son, Augustus D. Williams, kept a store. The movements were made in 1866, in anticipation of the starting of a town. A Town Company was organized consisting of George A. Crawford, S. A. Williams, C. W. Blair, Benjamin McDonald and John Nandier, a town site laid out and called Osage Mission., in December, 1867. By the side of it and to the west another town site was laid out and called Catholic Mission. On this town site a small store was opened by S. J. Gilmore, in a log building known then and still remembered as “Castle Thunder;” this store was opened in 1865. On Osage Mission townsite the Town Company erected a building on the corner of County and Market streets into which A. D. Williams moved his stock of goods in 1867, in which he kept the postoffice, with C. H. Howard as deputy. About the same time L. P. Foster & Co., erected a two story frame building across the street and a little north of the present site of the Southern Hotel. Joseph Roycroft built a log saloon near where now stands the City Bank; Middaugh and Dohnan came down from Topeka, and built a store where L. Steadman’s store now stands, in 1867; James Roycroft erected a boarding house, the first in town, on the southeast corner of County and Market Streets, and during the summer John Nandier built the first hotel, the Neosho House, a large two story frame, long known as the finest hotel building in Southern Kansas. Not long after this Nathaniel Tucker started a store near “Castle Thunder,” in the building now occupied as a dwelling by Daniel Zehner, and about the same time, perhaps a short time previously, Dr. J. B. Lamb started a store also in Catholic Mission. Marston & Ulmer, from Iowa, opened a furniture store in 1868. J. M. Boyle, from Fort Scott, opened a hardware store just north of L. P. Foster & Co.’s store, and on the southwest corner of County and Main streets, Ryan & Roycroft started a general store about the same time.

The first lawyer in the town was C. F. Hutchings, in 1867, the first physician, Dr. A. F. Neely, about the same time, and the first Protestant minister was Rev. A. Hitchcock. The first birth was that of a son to Mr. and Mrs. S. A. Noble, 1868. From the first the growth of the town was vigorous and rapid. In August, 1868, it contained eight dry goods stores, three drug stores, one hardware store, two boot and shoe stores, four blacksmith shops, and numerous other business establishments, and a population of nearly nine hundred. From this time until the building of the railroad the growth of the town was steady. It was the center of three lines of stages; one to Fort Scott, one to Humboldt and the other to Chetopa. When these stages arrived all was life and animation. Each stage was a Concord coach drawn by four fine large horses, and the driver’s voice and importance, and the crack of his whip served to raise the excitement to the highest pitch, and is still vividly remembered. A more complete history of the town will be seen in the sketches of its individual industries and institutions…

…The first school in Osage Mission was the Mission School, begun by Father Schoenmakers in 1847. This, however, was an institution devoted to the education of Indians and in the interests of the Catholic Church.

23. Death: 1868 Apr 20.
There is some uncertainty as to place of Daniel Levi Brewer’s death. In
a family sheet Nancy Benton was given, Daniel was given as dying in
Filmore IN. “Why, if he had moved to IL and then to KS? Did he go back
for some reason and die there and Catherine and the kids stayed in KS?
Also, the story mother told about him being killed when the oxen ran
off–did she possibly have the grandfathers mixed up? According to the
story in the McClean County, IL, history, that is how Robert Johnson,
grandfather of Delana died. It seems strange that both of them would have
died the same way.”
