I was not locating much for a James Samuel b.1889, but did locate a Joseph Samuel who had draft records for WWI and WWII.He had a birth date of Feb.5, 1889, his residence on both records was Stone, Craighead, AR.WWI draft his name is listed as Joseph Samuel, and WWII it is Joseph Sam.I did locate a death record for one Fred Brewer showing his birth as Jul 7, 1922 and death as Sep. 1983 with his last know address as Lake City, Craighead, AR.
Are you sure your James Samuel Brewer died in MI?I don't see a trend of the family moving out of AR.Since his death was in 1959 there weren't many, if any, listed for the SSDI at that early date, and a lot of the states do not have records online.
I did locate a family listing on ancestry for a Joseph Samuel Brewer.I believe they stated his father was Joe Brewer, but had nothing else on him.They had no info for a mother either.If I get time in the next few days I'll try to look more, but maybe this will give you a start.
