I'd like to find descendants of this family, which is probably related to Laura's in some way:
James Brewer and Harriet Adams were parents of Daniel Chauncey Brewer (usually signed D. Chauncy Brewer), born May 24, 1828 in Springfield, Mass.
Daniel Chauncey Brewer married Mary Ada Turpin, daughter of Mary Ann Williams and John P. Turpin) on December 28, 1853. It was his second marriage. He was a wealthy horticulturist. They had one daughter Mary Ada Brewer who died young, and two sons who survived to adulthood: Daniel Chauncey Brewer b. September 14, 1861 in Springfield and David Homer Brewer b. December 08, 1854 also in Springfield. Daniel Chauncey Brewer became, I believe, a well-known author and died in 1932. Any connections, please contact me at email@example.com
