Hello Brewer Gang I too am looking for information on Isam Brewer that is listed in Bibb County, Al in 1870.
I think this is the same Isam Brewer that is listed in 1880 in Franklin County, Al in 1880
I found the marriages license for Silas Brewer that married Amarintha Handley, daughter of John Handley.
On this marriage liscense, John Handley and Isam Brewer give permission for their children to marry.
Married 24th day of August 1852 in Bibb County, Al.
My interest is linking the Isam Brewer that was in Bibb County in 1870 to the one in Franklin Co., Al 1880.
I think that Isam is the brother to John Brewer that is listed on page 46 of the 1860 census in Bibb County. John it seems died before the 1870 census as his wife shows as WD with children in the household. They are living next door to Isam and his family.
I looked though the marriages license at the courthouse in Bibb County, today and found what I think is the marriage lis for Isam and Rebecca, seems she was a Brewer as well.
