William Brewer1

b. circa 1799, d. 1857
  • William Brewer was born circa 1799 at Pennsylvania.3
  • He is possibly the William Brewer who married Anne Fuller on 27 December 1829 at Tippecanoe Co., Indiana.4
  • William Brewer married Sarah Switzer before 1837.1
  • William Brewer died in 1857.1
  • Also known as William Bruer.3
  • "William Brewer, the father of the subject (John W. Brewer), was reared in Ohio, and when a young man, started for the West, going to Lafayette, Indiana, and there married. In about 1832 he came to Vermilion County, locating in Danville."2
  • He appeared on the census in 1840 at Vermilion Co., Illinois, as Wm. Brewer, with a household of 1 male under 5, 1 male 30-40, 1 female under 5, 1 female 20-30, and 1 female 40-50.5
  • Between 1840 and 1848 William Brewer resided at Clay Co., Illinois; then returned to Vermilion County.2

However, there is no evidence to support the claim that the two William Brewers are the same man.7

William Brewer1

b. 4 September 1826, d. 30 May 1886
  • He appeared on the census on 24 October 1850 at Jefferson Co., Texas, as William Brewer, age 23, born in Louisiana. A laborer. With him is his wife, Caroline, age 22, also born in Louisiana.4
  • He appeared on the census on 13 July 1860 at Grigsbys Bluf, Jefferson Co., Texas, as William Brewer, age 33, born in Louisiana. A farmer and stock raiser. In the household are his wife Caroline and children Erastus, Elisha, Elias, Erasmus A., James B., and A. Jackson. He is enumerated next to Levi Hillebrandt.5
  • He appeared on the census on 25 June 1880 at Precinct 3, Kimble Co., Texas, as William E. Brewer, age 54, born in Louisiana. Father born in New York, mother born in Louisiana. A farmer. In the household are his wife Caroline, and children Andrew, Albert J., Erastus; daughter-in-law, Mary T. Brewer (wife of Erastus) and granddaughter Lillia. The household is enumerated next to James B. Brewer.6
  • William Brewer's ancestry is not known. A direct descendant has participated in the Brewer DNA Project (kit no.14813) and the results demonstrate that the descendant is most closely matched with descendants of Jan Brouwer of Flatlands. On the 1880 census, William' father is stated to have been born in New York. Census records (1860, 1870 and 1880) consistantly state that William, himself, was born in Louisiana. The first known record of William Brewer is his marriage record in 1850, at Jefferson County, Texas. In the early to mid 1830s there was a heavy migration of families from southwest Louisiana into eastern Texas (largely at the invitation of the Mexican Government). Among those immigrating were, at least two, different William Brewers. On 23 May 1835, the character of William G. Brewer, petitioning for land in Nacogdoches, was attested to by Radford Berry. On 9 Oct. 1835, the character of William T. Brewer, petitioning for land in Nacogdoches, was attested to by Radford Berry. On 20 Sep 1834, the character of William T. Brewer was attested to by Luis Procela Alc., who also states that William T. Brewer has a wife and two children. Texas gained its Independence in 1836. In 1835 a William Brewer appears on the tax rolls at Williams Settlement, Texas Territory. In 1836 a William F. Brewer is on the tax roll at Nacogdoches, Texas Territory. Nacogdoches County was created on 17 March 1836. In 1840 there are both a William Brewer, and a William T. Brewer on the tax lists of Nacogdoches County. In 1845 one William Brewer is taxed in Nacogdoches County. In April 1846 Nacogdoches County was divided into what would eventually become twenty different counties, among them Rusk County, Henderson County and Cherokee County. In 1846 there are both a William Brewer and a William G. Brewer taxed in Cherokee County, and William T. Brewer in Henderson County (as well as a William Brewer in Washington County). In 1846, there is also an Erasmus Brewer, taxed in Rusk County. It must be noted that this William Brewer named a son Erasmus, a name that is otherwise rare among Brewers anywhere. Texas became a State in the United States in 1845. The first U.S. Census covering Texas is in 1850. In 1850 there is a William Brewer, age 60 (b.1790) at Rusk, Rusk Co., Texas. He is the only person named Brewer in the household of William Elliott. His place of birth is recorded as "unknown" (all others on the sheet do have a specific place of birth recorded). No Erasmus Brewer is found in Rusk County, or in the entire State of Texas in 1850 (in fact there are only two adult men named Erasmus Brewer found in the entire U.S. in 1850. One in Virginia, the other in North Carolina).
    This William Brewer was born in 1826 and therefore a search was made of the 1830 and 1840 census records in Louisiana with the hope of finding a Brewer head of household with a son in the appropriate age brackett for the particular census year (0-5 in 1830; 10-15 in 1840). Of the few Brewers in Louisiana in 1830 and 1840, none had a son in this age brackett. Perhaps William's father was in (Mexican) Texas prior to 1830 (a small population of "squatters" from Louisiana were prior to formal land petiton records).
    The search for William Brewer's parents has to begin with the above mentioned men. The question is, how or why, would a Brewer man, born in New York, find his way to the Louisiana Bayou region and eventually to east Texas? One Willam Brewer mentioned was born in 1790. If born that early he certainly would have been old enough to participate in the War of 1812. Could a Brewer man have been recruited for military service during the War of 1812, in the New York area, then find himself, because of his service, in Louisiana? An investigation into War of 1812 enlistments in New York and subsequent deployments has to be conducted. It is also possible that William Brewer's father found his way to Louisiana via the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. It is possible to travel from Pittsburgh, Pa. to New Orleans by water, without ever stepping foot on land. A number of families descended from Jan Brouwer of Flatlands were in the Ohio River Valley area circa 1800. Among them are Samuel Brewer, b. 14 Feb 1790, a riverman who worked on flatboats on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers and "was often away from home for long periods," according to descendants. There may have been other Brewers who made their living on the rivers and perhaps Samuel, or one other, while in Louisiana. As no male Brewer age 0-5 is found in Louisiana in 1830, perhaps William was born to a Louisiana woman by a Brewer man from elsewhere, who did not remain in Louisiana.7,8,9
