Hello, I was surprised to see a posting mentioning Balaam Brewer. There is a record of a Balaam Brewer in Lawrence County Alabama in 1856. The only other Brewer's that were in Lawrence County Alabama appear on the 1850 census as John J. Brewer age 26 and James W. Brewer age 22, both living with a Louisa Brewer age 64 born in Virginia. Next door to them is Rebecca Kirksey and her children and a John Brewer age 10. I think Rebecca Kirksey must have been a Brewer before she married. Balaam Brewer does not appear on the 1850 census, there is only the mention of him here in 1856. I do know that the two Brewer men on the 1850 census moved to Texas before 1860. Those two young men are supposed to be children of Buckner Brewer. If you know anything of this Rebecca Kirksey or this Balaam Brewer I would appreciate any clues.
