I am the GG Grand daughter of William Henry Brewer, son of John Brewer and Nancy Boon. He was born Sept. 9, 1818, in Morgan County, GA, died Jan. 14, 1893, in the B'ham area of Jefferson County, AL. He was a building contractor, or a mason, working on some the the big buildings which still survive in B'ham. I am still trying to find proof on that though. The family knows, but no one else seems to. He married Sara Ann (Morrow/Meriwether/Landers). No one seems to agree on that. Can't find records on any wife for him. If you ever find out, PLEASE let me know! They had 7 children: John C., Sept. 1854, Jesse T. 1856, Joseph P. Feb. 1857, James Zachariah "Jim" Jan 29, 1860, Rhoda A.M. "Rhodie" 1863, Matthew Robert Jan 1, 1865 (my G Grandfather& Sheriff of Mountainboro, Etowah Co. AL& coal miner in Sligo, which is near Mountainboro), & William Lafayette "Billy" Dec 18, 1866. James Zach died in Adamsville, AL, Rhoda married Alvin Scott,William Lafayette died in Gardendale, AL, which is a suburb of B'ham, Matthew Robert died in Sardis City, Etowah Co.,AL, which is one mile from Mountainboro, and is buried in Thrasher's Cem, which is across the street from his house, (where I lived for 17 years). John C. married Mary C. Unknown, and had Maurice and Agnes I.;Joseph P. married Eliza Unknown and had Vicie, Jesse, Rhody, Claudy, & Ida. James Zach married Margret Hannah Rivers & had Nancy Saphrona, Henry Matthew, Jessie Comer, Martha Hannah, Samuel David, Robert Lafayette, Vesta, & Margaret. Matthew Robert married Mary Ann Rogers and had Thomas Buford and Sarah Naoma "Oma" (my Grand mother and G Uncle). William Lafayette married Francis C. Sharitt and had Sara "Sally Rhodie, Cora C., William "Willie" Asa, Viola, Homer Roy, and Oscar Underwood Brewer. I have the children of John Brewer and Nancy Boon as William Henry/Henery, Joseph, and Emily Annie, born 1828, in Walton Co., GA . Joseph born Jan 29, 1825,in Walton Co, GA,died July 12, 1890 in Warrior, Cullman or Jefferson Co.,AL, married Emelia "Milly" Lacy and had Benjamin A., Elizabeth, Cynthia "Cinthy", Joseph H., James P., Mary, Julia A., Emma C., John Wesley, & David Irvin. Emily Annie married Hartwell A. Baldwin and had John& William H. Baldwin. Sara Naoma married my Grandpa Lee Theodore Pritchett Sr., they had Lee Theodore Jr, who died at 3 months, and my father, Donald Wayne Sr. who was a B'ham Police Officer for 20 years, He lived in the family home at Sardis and drove to B'ham every day. Thomas Buford was a machinist, who lost an arm, he married Minnie Louise Royseter, a Registered Nurse, and had Joseph Thomas "Joe", who is doing genealogy and provided most of this information to me. He lives in Arab, Marshall Co., AL. with his wife, Emma Jane Clark. Most of the older family members lived in the area around B'ham, Joseph P. was a founding father of the Holly Pond area of Cullman Co.,AL. I found him in "The Heritage of Cullman County Alabama" I hope this helps you. If you find anything interesting please let me know! My G Grandfather Matthew Robert Brewer married Mary Ann Rogers in the Warrior, AL area, but I cannot find anything on that area. All I have is my Grandmother's Bible. I am still trying to find a record of that wedding. Hope you have better luck!
