I'm going to throw this out here and see if it connects with anyone else's Brewer line.According to the 1870 census for Dunklin County Missouri, our Daniel Brewer was born in Tennessee (~ 1825).He is listed with his second(?) wife, Francis, as his 3 older children are too old to be Francis'.The children listed are:Cyntha (b. ~1850 in Illinois), Candac (b. ~1854 in Illinois, George (b. ~1857 in Arkansas), William (b. ~1866 in Missouri), Mary (b. ~1868 in Missouri).There is also a farmhand listed as Daniel Hill, age 12, born in Illinois.
By the 1880 Dunklin County Missouri census Daniel and Francis had 3 more children, Frances age 7, Neoma age 4 and Sidney age 3.It also lists NC as being where his parents were from.There was only one child from his first marriage still living at home and that was Joseph (George on the 1870 census).Joseph lists his mother's birthplace as OH.
I have unproven information that Francis was Francis Hensen born June 4, 1845 in Tennessee.I also have the name Mary as a possibility for his first wife's name.
Does anyone have any information that would connect this Daniel with the Daniel Brewer who was a son to Nathaniel Brewer of Chatham County North Carolina or any other Brewers of North Carolina?I know it's a long shot, but we're kind of stuck with Daniel.
I would be happy to share what I know so far on his descendants.Thanks for your time!
