First, was Oliver born 1819, or 1919 and where? Second what are the approximate years of birth for George, Elizabeth & Jacob? Were they born in TN? In searching on an Oliver Brewer born 1819 TN, about the only census that pops up is for an Oliver who married an Elisabeth. The family is listed on the 1860 Hancock C.,TN for this couple with 6 children which includes a George, b. abt 1847 and and Elisabeth, b.abt 1856; but no Jacob. There is a Joab Brewer, age 79, in the household which is probably this Oliver's father. This Oliver's life apparently spanned 1819-1909. 1870 this family appears to be in Lee Co., VA and is there through the 1900 census. The surname on the 1860 census is picked up as Bresner by Ancestry, but if you look at the file you can see that it is Brewer.
