I have recently found my ggrandfather (William) Caswell Brewer (dob 21 Nov 1856-TX) residing with his mother Mary BREWER Murray in Freestone Co., TX in the 1880 census.Evidently the Brewer patriarch (unk name, either died or is gone) because Mary had remarried a J. K. Murray 12 Dec 1877, and evidently he had died before the 1880 census because she is listed as a widow.
Other children of Mary residing with her were:
Caroline Brewer, dau F S W age 23 (ca 1861-TX)
Henry Brewer, son M S W age 16 (ca 1864 TX)
Buddie Brewer, son M S W, age 13 (ca 1866 TX)
The census reflects that Mary was born in TN.
The father of the children was born in MS
In researching the 1870 census for Freestone Co., TX a
H. Brewer 51 M W MS is listed ( the 1870 census lists the head of household only). He is the only Brewer from MS listed.
I am trying to ascertain who the father of the children is. Does anyone have any information on who this H. Brewer may be? Where do I search in MS? What happened to him? No death listing in Freestone Co., Tx after 1870 census.
What was Mary's maiden name? Who was her family?
I know that Caswell married Isabel Abigail Giles in Freestone Co., TX in 1883, but interestingly I cannot find them in the 1900 census of TX, even though their oldest son Tolbert Theodore Brewer was born in Freestone Co., TX in 1900.
What a mystery! If anyone can shed any light on this family I would appreciate it very much.
Thanks so much. Kloyece
