Brewer Family Genealogy Forum
I am not directly related to you, but do have some info. you may be interested in. My 2g grandmother, Sarah M. Necessary, was married to Isaac Brewer. I just learned his first name when I got my 2g grandfather, James Muncy's pension records from the civil war 3 days ago. I knew she had been married to a Brewer who was killed early in the civil war (1962 by their estimates) by home guards in Ky (then Lawrence Co. and later Martin Co.), but had no first name, and no connections. When she applied for widow's pension after James' death, she ended up having to give details about his death, down to exactly what happened, and who was with her. The bullet entered his leg above the knee, and came out at the knee. He was shot at about 11 AM and died at 10 PM. Some other accounts said a man named Jack Maynard was the actual killer. Also, she said she call "Aaron Brewer, Liza Brewer, and Bettie Brewer" to come get the body, and they buried him. Of couse, Isaac was a brother of Lewis, as was Aaron. Included in the record, their brother, James Brewer testified at age 85 to helping build the coffin, and that he knew he was dead.
Isaac and Sarah had 3 sons, Joel, Henry, and Jefferson. According to ancestry.com, Isaac had been married before to Keziah Spaulding, but no children were mentioned. It also mentions Sarah. I sure would like to know where that info. came from. I'm still piecing this thing together. It was so good to look on this board and see some familiar names. Identifying Isaac has been a key point on my agenda for a while. I enjoyed your info. Glenn Muncy
