I am the great, great grandson of Jim Brewer who was a brother to "Black Sam" Brewer.Grandpa Jim , who was called Pap by the family, had several children including Ellis Clement Brewer , my grandfather. My dad's name is Billy Brewer and he was born near Winchester in Franklin County.He could provide quite a bit of info on that side of the family.
We also have the book called " Paint Rock Valley Brewers".There is an annual Brewer reunion every year at Huntland TN.in June. I'd love to learn what you know about "Black Sam" and any other info. Let me know if you have any other questions
