Janie BREWER (d. 1898 Parrott, Terrell Co, GA), buried at Clapp's Factory
"A SAD OCCURRENCE
"Miss Janie BREWER, of Phenix City, Dies Suddenly at Parrott
"The many friends of Miss Janie BREWER, of Phenix City [Lee County,
Alabama], will be pained to learn of her sudden death which occurred
at Parrot [Terrell County], Ga., Thursday. Her sister, who resides
at Parrott, telegraphed Miss BREWER a few days ago that she was very
sick and requested her come to Parrott at once. She immediately went
to the bedside of her sister and cared for her faithfully up till the
time of her death. Miss BREWER was giving her sister a dose of
medicine and all of a sudden dropped dead. Her remains were brought
in on the Georgia and Alabama [rail]road at 12:00 o'clock yesterday
from Parrott. The funeral occurred from the depot, Rev. J. W. HOWARD
officiating in a very impressive manner. The interment occurred at
Clapp's factory burying ground."
[Columbus (GA) Daily Enquirer newspaper, Sunday, 30 JAN 1898.]
It appears that Rev. J. W. HOWARD was a Baptist minister.
The fact that Miss BREWER was carried back to the Columbus area and
buried at Clapp's Factory, combined with the fact that there were
BREWERS in the CF community, suggests that relatives of hers were
already buried there.
I'm wondering if she is kin to Allen BREWER who m. 12 DEC 1877 in
Muscogee Co, GA, to Rebecca "Becky" VINSON? In 1880, they are
residing at Clapp's Factory (p. 510A in Nances Dist) - each is 22 and
b. in AL; they have a son James (2), plus Allen's mother Winsey (45,
b. GA, widowed) and three brothers, Josie (24), Thomas (19), and
Gilbert (17) - all three b. in AL, single and, like Allen, working in
the cotton mill. A. D. BREWER served on a coroner's inquest jury at
Clapp's Factory on 13 FEB 1884. There was later an A. D. BREWER
involved with the International Order of Oddfellows fraternal
organization in Phenix City.
Also in 1880, I found in the Lower 19th Dist of Harris Co, GA, p.
548A, James W. BREWER, a farmer, age 58, b. GA, with wife Arminda
(45, b. GA) keeping house, and children William H. (23 GA), a farm
laborer, and Mary S. (19 GA) - both single. All parents were b.
GA. I've wondered if this isn't the same as James W. BRUNER [sic]
who m. 14 NOV 1854 in Muscogee Co, GA, to Melissa A. DECKER (b. ca.
1837). The DECKERS are another Clapp's Factory family.
There is a Joseph C. BREWER indexed on p. 209 of the 1860 census of
Muscogee Co. According to the LDS IGI NA, Joseph C. BREWER m. 28 MAY
1850 in Muscogee Co, GA, to Ellen A. FLEMING.
I am interested to learn more about Janie BREWER's background and
family connections, as well as the rest of the BREWERS associated
with Clapp's Factory. Thanks John in TX
