Hi Henry, I have been trying to make the family tie back to Zebedee Brewer.My Grandmother, Sadie or Sarah always claimed to be a Brewer.She said her father was Benjamin and her grandfather was Zebedee Brewer.We assumed that Benjamin was a Brewer also, but I have found info that leads me to believe his surname was Franklin.Benjamin Franklin married Eliza Ann Brewer, the daughter of Zebedee in Sebastian county Ark. in 1877.I found Benjamin and Liza and 2 yr. old Sarilda, and Zebedee Brewer living in the same household in the 1880 census of Fremont county Colorado.Joseph or Josiah and family were living in the same area.Do you have any info on Benjamin and Eliza Ann Franklin's family? the only two children I know of are Sadie, born 1878 in Ark. and Algie, born 1892 or 1894 in Colorado.
Does the name Annie or Anne Ruleman (Ruelman)sound familiar. I have some photos taken from about 1922 up to 1940 of Annie Ruleman that refers to her as the mother of Algie and Sadie (my Grandmother).
Hope you can help me out, because I've been stuck behind this fence for quite awhile.
