Nancy Bellzona's Picture Book
The Brewer's -
Family of Jacob F. Brewer

To realize as a descendant of this man Jacob Fletcher Brewer there is nothing I can add.  Reading the work of one of his line, Reagan Alan Brewer, Atlanta, Georgia is helping me to tie their culture to that of my father, Lee Otis Jones. Reagan mentions that they passed the knowledge of  brewing from father to son.  This was definitely a part of my father's make up.  He made the most wonderful elderberry wine and kept it cool in a very large wooden barrel in our cellar.  People came for miles when there was any occasion for them to be invited. Today, there are those who remember the "spirits" he could produce, not just one variety but a wide selection from home made whiskey and more. It is more than the knowledge, there is an actual love of the blending and producing of fine drinks. In Oklahoma if liquor is produced just for one's own use,  it is legal.  Lee did not drink his own alcohol other than to delicately taste it to test  for quality. He did not pass on his knowledge and none of his family knows how to work with brewing.

Brewer Family Tree

Arthur CROCKER is shown on this page as a private in Captain Nathan Chamber's Company, 1813. Arthur is the father of Eda Crocker Brewer, wife of Jacob Fletcher Brewer.

I hope that this is still a valid e-mail address for you.  I am a descendant of William Clark and Rachel Starkey and a number of years ago I found your wonderful website for the Brewer Family which helped me fill in my information for Miranda Clark who married Jacob Brewer Jr.
My lineage also intersects the Clarks with a Vanderford family (among others) from Polk County Missouri.  In a moment of boredom today, I did a Google Image search for Vanderford and found a link to Nemaha County Nebraska cemeteries.  I found some Vanderfords buried in the Honey Creek Cemetery and also a tombstone inscription for
Brewer, Edy, Consort of Jacob Brewer, died June 7, 1865, aged 71y 4m 6d . A photo of the tombstone is at this site:
I was sure this was a Brewer relation to the Clarks since one of the Vanderfords (William) buried in this cemetery was married to 2 Rains sisters.  These Rains sisters had a third sister Hannah married to George Clark a son of William Clark. 
In rechecking your website at I saw that you did not have information posted about Edeith after Polk Co. Missouri, and as one genealogist to another, I felt compelled to let you know what I had found. 
I really enjoyed your website.  It had so many interesting postings.  In addition to the family connection,  my husband's family was from Osage County Oklahoma.  He was born at Ponca City.  His mother's maiden name was Barnard and one of her grandmothers was Martha Ella Jones.  I did not see any connection to his family in your material; however, some of the pictures of your relations bear a striking resemblance to my mother-in-law.
I hope you can use this information.
