According to this then.

Wilma Brewer was born 1907 and looks to be about 3 years of age here. Delana Fowler Brewer, the matriarch of the clan here, was born in 1854. Monte Brewer was born in 1905. John David Brewer was born in 1869 and so is about 40 here. Eva Hall Brewer was born also about 1869. The child in her lap is John who was born 1909.

Daisie (Daisy), the girl standing to the left behind Delana, was born in 1898. Flora was born 1896.

Walter Brewer, son of Delana and David Nathaniel Brewer, was born 1890. His wife, Edith, was born in 1894, so she would be about 16 here. Uncle Roy and Maude would be Clara Maudline (Maude) b. 1892 and her husband Roy Carrico. Addie Brewer was born in 1890. Bill Smith would be her husband and Irene their daughter. Ralph Brewer was born 1901 and would be 9 here. Albert Brewer was born 1894 and so would have been 16 in this photo and must be the taller boy, still short. Lewis Brewer was born 1903 and would be 7.

All the children of John David and Eva had to 1910 are thus all shown here. They would have two more after this picture: Elizabeth b. 1912 and Lellia b. 1915.

John David Brewer, b. 1869 December 10 at Osage Mission, Neosho, KS, married Eva Hall about 1889.

The 1900 census showed them as living in Ozark, Barton county, Missouri. They reside by Frank Bevans, whose son Frank Jr. would marry Mary Louise “Mary Lou” Noyes in 1929:

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:

Rose 44 b. KS father b. KY mother b. KS
Davie 18 b. MO
Ralph nephew 11 b. MO father b. KS mother b.MO

The 1920 census shows the following for Schuyler in Polk, Dade, Missouri:

Gladys 21 b. MO parents b. MO
Odilla 5 b. MO
Pansy 3
Schuyler Jr. 1

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:
