Re: JOHN WALKER BREWER-GA, TX

In Reply to: JOHN WALKER BREWER-GA, TX by FRANCES of 8988

John Walker Brewer, b. 2 Apr 1857, was the son of Lt. Col. Septimus Lemuel and Amanda A. Beall Brewer of Taylor Co., GA. He died March 1932 in Ennis, TX. The family Bible of Septimus and Amanda is listed at the Taylor Co. Rootsweb site.
John W. Brewer's grandfather was Henry Brewer of Monroe Co., GA. He left a will in will book A, p.122. Henry's wife was Nancy Doles, daughter of Revolutionary Soldier Jesse Doles of Baldwin Co., GA.
I have a note in my file that John Walker Brewer wrote a letter from Texas that was published in The Butler Herald, vol. 26, #16, February 11, 1902. I don't know the contents of the letter other than it said he came to Texas in December 1898 and that he was 7 miles from Chatfield, TX.
I also have a note that he married Mattie E. Johnson, possibly in 1877, but I have no proof of that.
Hope this helps.
