My daughter sent me your query re: Balaam BREWER. My family is researching Balaam to determine whether he could be the father of Caswell(C.C.) BREWER, my husband's Ggrandfather.

Balaam married Nancy Polly Taylor 21 Oct 1816 in St. Tammany Parish, LA.

Do you have a list of their children?

We think Caswell could be their son as he and Balaam were in Hinds Co., MS, both on the Republic of TX Poll list for 1846 for Harrison Co., TX, Caswell married Elizabeth Ann WALTON in Harrison Co., TX in 1847.

In the 1850 census for Upshur Co., TX Balaam is listed as #318 and Caswell as #319.

Caswell is in the 1860 Upshur Co., TX, but Balaam is not. I cannot find either of them after that.

I will be glad to share more specific info with you.
