George W. Brewer b. 1844 Georgia to Alabama

Seeking help identifying the Georgia family of my George W. Brewer, born August 1844 in GA. He enlisted at age 17 in 1861 in Co. G, 11th Alabama Infantry known as the Northport Rifles which is Tuscaloosa County, AL. George lost a leg in the war (Seven Pines, VA, 1862) and settled in Birmingham, Jefferson Co., AL after the war where he died about 1889. His profession was distiller. He named a daughter Mary Margaret Brewer, possibly after his mother or grandmother, and he named a son Marion Moses known as "Mape" Brewer. He married Disa Townley of Townley, AL and there was a connection to a William Hinton family where George, age 16 was enumerated on the 1860 Tuscaloosa County census. The census stated he was born in Georgia, and the Hintons were from SC and TN. Please note this is Hinton, not to be confused with Hinson. Family tradition tells of the Brewers coming from England and an ancestor of George marrying an Indian girl. Would appreciate any leads, contacts, or information and will gladly exchange my research information.
