Yesterday I found in the
internet that Nancy died 24 March 1925 and is buried in the McCullough
Cemetery at Stone County Missouri. It appears that Henry Lightle is
buried there too. I'd assume then that they must have died in or around
In the 1900 Stone County
census there is a Henry and Larkin Brewer. Do you know anything of them?
Some of the
Ann Brewer and Nancy Lucinda Brewer are daughters of John Wesley Brewer
and Mary America Hunter. John is son of Jacob Fletcher Brewer and Edeith
Crocker. Elizabeth Aletha Lightle is daughter of Henry Lightle and Nancy
Lucinda Brewer. This information was supplied to Peggy (Britton) Boone,
great granddaughter of Elizabeth Aletha Lightle and William Isaac Briton,
by Donna Flood. Donna is descended from Elizabeth Ann Brewer.
Peggy has put these 3
photos together, so that we can compare facial looks of these 3 special
ladies. The Brewers have been pretty much a mystery to Peggy’s line,
some letters that Nancy wrote to her husband, which she will transcribe
later. She can also send originals.
Peggy for the above information and should you have any further
information on the family please email her on
