Jim Brewer of Searcy

My mother remembers an old gentleman named Jim Brewer, an ex-slave who lived in Searcy in the 1920's. He was well thought of and people called him Uncle Jim. He lived in a shanty behind the Word's house (called the "Dictionary House")and often went to the Nazarene Church where he enjoyed the music and preaching.

Was there a Brewer Plantation in White Co.? It would be interesting to find out more about Uncle Jim. I have recorded everything my mother could remember about him, but would like to add to it.
