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.)

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.

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.”

Mrs. D. L. Brewer

Delana L. Fowler, daughter of John and Mary Fowler, was born September 12, 1854, and died November 4, 1939. She was united in marriage to D. N. Brewer in March 1869. To this union eleven children were born. Her husband and seven children preceded her in death. The children living are John Brewer of Joplin, Missouri; Mrs. Mary Rhodes of Minden Mines, Missouri; Mrs. Ray Noyes of Liberal, Missouri; Mrs. Levi Jones of Selah, Washington, and Walter Brewer of Arcadia, Kansas, where she was making her home. She is also survived by one sister, Mrs. Mike Workman of Lamar, many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and a host of other relatives and friends. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Lokey at Carr’s Chapel on November 5, in the presence of a large crowd of sorrowing friends and relatives. There was a beautiful floral offering. Her children were all here when she passed away.

Here, I’ve tried to add a little more body to it.

Family of David Nathaniel Brewer and Delana Louise Jane Fowler

Rarely do I have a photo showing a full family and am lucky to have this as it has enabled me to make possible identifications on other photos.

Shown in the photo are top row, left to right: Dan, Bettie, Lewis, Jessie, Elmer. Bottom row left to right: Mary, Dave, Walter, Delana, John.

This was taken, what, circa 1909 or 1910 in likely Dade county, Missouri.

A post on the family is here.

Daniel b. 1874 was the third child, Bettie b. 1877 was the fifth, Lewis, born 1880 was the 6th child, not shown is the 7th child named Lois who only lived 1880 to 1881, Jessie b. 1888 was the 10th child, Elmer b. 1883 was the 8th child. Mary b. 1872 was the 2nd child, Dave is the father b. 1850, Walter was the 11th child b. 1890, Delana is the mother b. 1854, and John is the eldest child b. 1869.

Not shown also is Alva who lived from 1885 to 1909. My belief is his death was likely the inspiration for this family photo. Robert Walter was driving a buggy through a creek, and the buggy overturned, throwing “the boys” out. Alva, trying to help the horse out, stepped into a deep hole and was drowned and not found until the following day.

Note that in the front row we have the eldest daughter sitting beside her father, the eldest boy sitting beside the mother, and Walter, the youngest, who was with Alva when he drowned, in the center between his parents.

Five Generations of Brewers

Five Generations article courtesy Nancy Benton

This picture shows five generations of one family–and the infant who is the fifth generation perhaps has more living grandparents than any other child in the Ozarks; certainly more than most for she has 11.

In the center of the picture is Mrs. D. L. Brewer, 87, of Arcola, the baby’s great-greatgrandmother. At the left in the middle row is her son, Dan Brewer, 61, of Arcola; his wife is just below him at the left in the front row. They are the baby’s great-grandparents. At the top left and center are Mr. and Mrs. Schuyler Brewer, the infant’s grandparents, also of Arcola. Mr. Brewer is 40. At the right of the top is the baby’s father, Gilbert Pyle, of Jerico Springs, and his wife, Pansy Brewer Pyle, is holding their six-months-old daughter, Peggy Lou Pyle.

Peggy Lou’s other living grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. Leon Pemberton, Mrs. Schuyler Brewer’s parents; Mr. and Mrs. Cortes Pyle, her great-grandparents, and Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Pyle, her grandparents, on the father’s side of the house. Both Pyle families are of Stockton.

Delana Louise Jane Fowler Brewer (grandmother of Dorothy Noyes mcKenney) was born in 1854 and died in 1939 at the age of 85, so the article is wrong as to her age.

Her son Daniel was born in 1874 in Barton county, Missouri and was 61 in 1935, so I’ll place this article as being in 1935. His wife was Rose Trent b. 1878 in KS and died in 1948. They were married March 25 1895 in Girard, Crawford, Kansas.

Daniel and Rose had two children, Schuyler b. abt 1897 and Davie b. abt 1902. Schuyler married Gladys Pemberton who was born abt 1899 in Missouri. They had three children: Odilla b. abt 1915, Pansy b. abt 1917 and Schuyler Jr. b. abt 1919.

Pansy married Gilbert C. Pyle.

In 1920 Daniel was living in North, Dade, Missouri. His nephew, Ralph, was living with them. Ralph was a son of John David Brewer:

Schuyler’s uncle, Robert Walter Brewer, was married to an Edith S. Gilmore. I think it likely that Andrew was a relation.

The 1930 census shows for Schuyler and Dan that they were living next to each other and that Delana was in Dan’s household:

Photo of Bettie Brewer Noyes and Dora Fowler taken at Fritts Studio in Liberal

Courtesy of Nancy Benton

I’ve touched it up a little below.

Dora Nancy Fowler Trent is shown here with her niece, Bettie Brewer (married Ray Noyes).

Dora Nancy Fowler was born abt 1869 at Osage Mission, Neosho, Kansas, the daughter of John B. Fowler and Mary Jane Johnson. She died at the age of 37, July 1906, and is buried at Carr’s Chapel Cemetery in Greenfield, Dade county, Missouri. She was married to Robert Lincoln Trent, who was born 1877 and died 1958.

Dora was the sister of Delana Louise Jane Fowler b. 1854, who married David Nathaniel Brewer. Bettie Brewer b. 1877, their daughter, is the girl with Dora.

It’s difficult for me to fix a date for this photo. Either there is a scratch on the photo on Bettie’s ring finger or she is already married and the ring is over her glove. If she was already married, the date of the photo is after May of 1895.

I have in my records that Robert Trent was also married to Mary Catherine Brewer, b. 1872 Jan 10, but I don’t know when this marriage might have taken place. She was married many years to George Spurling, who died in 1919. Mary Catherine was widowed in the 1920 census and by the 1930 census she was married to Deaton Rhoades.

Rose E. Trent, sister of Robert, also married into the Brewer family. March 25 1895 in Girard, Crawford, Kansas, she married Daniel Brewer, son of David Nathaniel Brewer and Delana Fowler Brewer. Their children were Schuyler and Davie and I have a post on them elsewhere in the blog.

So, the Trents perhaps first married into the family with Rose marrying Daniel Brewer in 1895, then in 1900 Robert Trent married Dan Brewer’s aunt, Dora, who was about 31 years of age, only about 4 years older than her nephew.

The Trents were children of a Matthew Trent and a woman named Mary. The 1880 census shows:

1880 Centerville, Neosho, KS
121/121 Trent Matthew m 65 b. KY parents b. KY
Mary 28 wife b. KS father b. IL father b. OH mother b. PA

Jane 18 wife b. IL father b. IL mother b. PA
illegible 1 daughter b. KS father b. KS mother b. IL
William H. 18 nephew farm hand

It’s not every day one sees a 60-something marrying a 20-something. By the 1885 Kansas state census of Centerville, Neosho they were no longer together and he was with an Elizabeth, age 44, but the children were in his household and also a year old Mary A. Perhaps Mary had died and Mary A. was her last child and was named for her. Under Elizabeth in the census is a Leander H. Anderson, 26. These two were both from Ohio. I see a family tree at Ancestry which gives Leander as a son of Daniel Anderson and Elizabeth Murdock who lived from 1842-1922. The marriage between Matthew and Elizabeth was a keeper and the 1895 census in Centerville still shows them together, Matthew by now 77 and Elizabeth 52.

By 1900, Robert was in Barton county, Missouri.

In 1910 he was a widower living with his brother, Perry, in Howard, Elk, Kansas. By 1915 he had married a Hattie D. and is still with her in the 1930 census, but he was buried with Dora Fowler in Carr’s Chapel Cemetery, Greenfield, Dade, Missouri.

The photo was taken at Fritts studio in Liberal, Missouri. I have on the blog another photo taken at Fritts which would have been from about the same time. The individuals are unknown.

David Nathaniel Brewer and Delana Louise Fowler

Delana and David Nathaniel touched up

Delana and David Nathaniel orig

I don’t recollect seeing very often early images clearly showing a woman as pregnant. The photo , courtesy of Nancy Benton, would have likely been taken in Barton County, Missouri.

David Nathaniel Brewer arrived in Barton County, Missouri before the establishment of Liberal in the early 1880s. Nancy Benton writes of David and Delana:

David was born in Putnam County, Indiana. He married Delana Fowler in Neosho, Kansas in 1869. They moved to Liberal, MO, in 1872 where they were active in the Methodist Church. His daughter, Bettie, is supposed to have been the first child baptized in the church. In 1895 they moved to Dade Co., MO. In 1902 he purchased an acreage south of Greenfield, MO, which he sold to his son Alva in 1906. In June, 1906 he purchased Lots 18, 19 and 20 in Block 1 in Pilgrim. His will divided his land between his children Mary Catherine Spurling, Jessie Jones, Walter Brewer, Elizabeth Jane Noyes, Lewis Brewer, John David Brewer, and Daniel Brewer. His son Walter was administrator and turned in a sale bill totaling $341.33.

Delana was born in Bloomington, ILL. At the age of 9 she moved with her parents to Osage Mission, Kansas, where she met and married David in 1869. After David died, she lived with her children. I remember her as a very tiny old lady.

David BREWER was born to Daniel Levi BREWER (of Mercer Co. KY) and Catherine HEDDEN (also of KY) on Oct 31 1850 in Putnam Co. IN . He died the 29th of August 1921 in Greenfield, Dade Co. MO.

David was the 5th of apparently 9 children, and the 4th son. Daniel was about 27 and Catherine about 28 when he was born.

When he was young, the family moved to Bloomington, Mclean Co. IL, where David’s future wife, Delana FOWLER, was born, 12 Sept. 1854, to John B. FOWLER and Mary Jane JOHNSON .

Shortly after the Civil War, the families moved to Osage Mission (St. Paul) Kansas, where David’s father, Daniel Levi Brewer, died 1868 April 20.

Delana FOWLER and David BREWER were married in Neosho, Kansas, 1 March 1869.

Their children:

    1. John David Brewer b. 1869 Dec 10 at the Osage Mission, Neosho, Kansas, died 1943 Feb 26 in Joplin, Jasper, Missouri, married in 1889 to Eva Hall, b. 1879 Aug in Missouri. They had 12 children.
    2. Mary Catherine Brewer b. 1872 Jan 10 in St. Paul, Kansas, died 1957 December 12 at Liberal, Missouri and was buried in the Englevale Cemetery in Englevale, Kansas. She married 1st George Spurling, then before 1939 a Rhodes (unknown), then Robert Lincoln Trent who was born 1878 April 5 in Galesburg, Kansas and died 1958 Feb 10 in Liberal, Missouri. (Thanks to Barbara Krogh for this information on Mary Catherine and Robert Trent. Her information is drawn from their death certificates and had differed from mine and so I’ve updated the information here. She also has Robert buried at Forest Chapel Cemetery as opposed to Carr’s Chapel Cemetery, which was the information I’d had.) Carr’s Chapel Cemetery in Greenfield, Dade, Missouri. His sister Rose married Daniel Brewer.
    3. Daniel Brewer b. 1874 Jan 13 in Barton County, Missouri, died 1939 Jan 1 at Greenfield, Dade, Missouri, was buried at Carr’s Chapel Cemetery in Greenfield, Dade, Missouri. He married Rose E. Trent b. 1878 in Kansas, died 1948 and was buried at Carr’s Chapel Cemetery at Greenfield, Dade, Missouri.
    4. James William Brewer was born 1876 Jan 5 and died 1876 Aug 25.
    5. Elizabeth Jane “Bettie” Brewer was born 1877 July 22 in Barton County, Missouri. She died 1963 July 9 and was buried at the Liberal Cemetery in Liberal, Missouri. She married Ray Noyes. This family is written of elsewhere in this blog.
    6. Lewis Brewer was born 1880 May 19 in Barton County, Missouri and died 1932 May 19 in Greenfield, Dade, Missouri. 1902 July 4 at Everton, Dade, Missouri he married Pearl Eva Jones b. 1885 May 5 at Everton, Dade, Missouri, died 1966 May 10.
    7. Lois Brewer was born 1880 May 19 at Barton County, Missouri and died 1881 January at Barton County, Missouri.
    8. Elmer Brewer was born 1883 Dec 25 and died 1919 May 1 at Greenfield Dade, Missouri. He is buried at Carr’s Chapel Cemetery, Greenfield, Dade, Missouri. He married Rosa Bell Jones, born 1885 July 25, died 1939 May 13. She was the daughter of Jim Jones and Lucy Coble.
    9. Alva Brewer was born 1885 Aug 10 at Barton County, Missouri and died 1909 May 24. He was buried at Carr’s Chapel Cemetery in Greenfield, Dade, Missouri.
    10. Jessie Brewer was born 1888 Jan 10 at Barton County, Missouri and died in June 22, 1981 at Yakima City, Yakima County, Washington. She married about 1905 in Everton, Dade, Missouri to Levy Jones who was born 1883 December 28 and died 1952 December 28 in Yakima City. Both are buried at Tahoma Cemetery in Yakima. They had 3 children. (1) Herman C. Jones b. 1906 September 22, died 1977 March 9 in Yakima. (2) Herbert Leo Jones b. 1910 October 28, died 1989 March 7 at Yakima, married 1947 August 27 at Selah to Edna Lambeth who was born 1919 March 1. She died 2006 October 10 and was buried at West Hills Memorial Park in Yakima. They had no children of their own. (3) Burton Jones b. abt. 1917, died 1975 Nov 6 in Yakima. (Thanks to Barbara Krogh for this information on the family of Jessie and Levy.)
    11. Robert Walter Brewer was born 1890 Nov 15 and died 1969 in Joplin, Jasper, Missouri. He is buried at Carr’s Chapel Cemetery, Greenfield, Dade, Missouri. He married Edith S. Gilmore who was born about 1894 in Missouri.

Alva’s death was an accidental drowning in a swollen creek.

Ed Henderson notes,

These are a couple of letters from Rachel Jane Henderson to her niece, Mrs. Elmer (Mary Elizabeth Brewer) Porcupile, after the tragic death of her son, Nova Windom Henderson who died May 2, 1909 and a letter about the death of one of her brother Dave Brewer’s son’s (Alva). From “Six Generations of Brewers” by; Norma L. Roberts, 1976. Transcribed January 13, 2001 by Ed Henderson.

“May the 30, 09 Dear Neice
I will drop you a few lines this moring oh it is so lonsome to be hear by my self oh how I miss my poore boy he was all way in the house with me it seams as if every thing is gon. my hops ar all blasted this world is a sad world for me windom sayd de had not lived rightr but if he had lisened to his mother he would of been all right he spok of people joying church. as bad sick as he was & I told him if he wanted to joyn church it was all righ he culd he sayd he felt as if he was all right & was ready to go but he hated to leave me. oh you know my heart was breaking to hear him talk so for all I knew he culd not live if he did not mend soon.”

Alva died on May 24 1909. Following is the letter concerning his death.

“Dear Neice
I got a letter from Dave & they had the sad neuse of Alvaus death last monda him & walter drove in the crick & dide not know it was up & thair! bugie turned over & threw the boys out & alva thoug his team was not going to get out so he started to help the hourse out & steped offf in a dep whole & dround & they never found him untill the next day noon oh how sad it was for me to read that letter it broat every thing so frech to my minde oh how quick the poore boy was taking a way alva was such a good boy it is sade.”

Jessie and her husband, Levy JONES, are given as having resided in Yakima, Washington. Photos exist of Bettie Brewer NOYES visiting her sister, Jessie, there in Washington in later years. It would appear that Jessie and Levy didn’t move to Washington until after 1930 as they are still in the Dade Co., Missouri census in 1930. She was known to be living in Selah, Yakima Co., Washington at the time of her mother’s death, as evidenced in her mother’s obituary. She is not mentioned in the obituary of Bettie Brewer NOYES and so had perhaps deceased by then.

Jessie’s sibling, Lewis, married Pearl JONES.

Nancy notes on Walter,

Walter and his family lived near Oscaloosa, Missouri, when I was growing up. They moved to Joplin sometime during the 1940’s. Walter was a some-time preacher.

THE CENSUS INFO

I have yet to locate the family in the 1870 census.

The 1880 census shows the family in Central, Barton, Missouri.

Delana’s father died 1883 in Greenfield.

I have yet to locate the family in the 1900 census.

In 1902, David purchased acreage south of Greenfield, Missouri, which he sold to his son, Alva, in 1906. Nancy Benton furnishes the paper which I’ll post in another blog.

Dela’s mother died 1902 in Greenfield. David’s mother died in 1903 in Greenfield.

Nancy Benton writes that in 1906, David purchased, at Pilgrim, Dade, Missouri, Lots 18, 19 and 20 in Block 1.

I’ve a letter dated 1907 July 25 that David wrote to Jim Brewer, that was sent in care of Rachel Jane Henderson, their sister, who was living in Chautauqua County. I’ll post this in another blog.

Their place in the 1910 census is yet to be found.

In 1920 they were in Polk, Dade, Missouri.
