since your post I have info on other Brewers and some questions about this name in Lee Co.
My line follows James Brewer1821-1896, a poor preacher.He was educated at williams College MA.His father was Jonas Brewer (which one is somewhat of a mystery). James married Elizabeth Pratt 1825-1899 in 1845 in Lee Co.Their children were Marcus, Carmelite, Adda and Orville.I have information about Carmelite (my great grandmother) and Orville.
There was an Ira Brewer 1822-1903 who was well known in Lee Co. he came to Lee Co in 1843.I believe his father was also a Jonas and perhaps was James brother.Ira married Mary Phillips 1822-1908.They had a big family.Many of my facts about Ira are based upon census & Platt records and biographies. Their children were Mary Jane 1844-1845, Louisa 1846-, George W. 1848-1930, Ella Jane 1849, Clara A. 1852-a872, Luna C 1854-.Hope this helps you and others.Please contact me for more information, I have more exact dates.The biographies do not mention his church affiliation or if he was related to "my" James. Hoping for info one way or the other.
