Looking for family of John B. Brewer
Posted by: Barb Brewer Date: August 27, 2001 at 16:59:08
  of 8988

Have hit a brick wall and would appreciate any help!
My great grandfather was John Benjamen Brewer
born August 2, 1855 near Crossville, TN. He married Elsie Terrill in 1878. Their children
were Andrew Jackson born Feb.13, 1880,Ellory born Sept. 27, 1881 and Joseph born in 1886.
John and Elsie were divorced sometime after March 1888. John then married a woman named Ollie. Their children were Jerry Albert born July 8, 1894, Effie born Sept. 23, 1898 and Pearl born June 9, 1904. John died in Crossville on August 28, 1937 and is buried in Creston Cemetery. In the 1870 Fed. Census for Cumberland County District 1, page 5 John is listed as living with William C, Elmore, his wife Eveline and their son Andrew. On John's death certificate his mother's last name is listed as Morrow.I am told John's parents migrated from North Carolina to Tennessee just prior to John's birth.
Does anyone recognize John? Who were his parents/siblings/grandparents? Does anyone know these Elmores and/or why John was living with them?
