Notes for George Brewer
George Brewer was son of Matthew Brewer, who died in Marengo county on 28 August 1832. The nuncupative will of Matthew Brewer mentions only his wife Polly (Mary) and his son George, to whom he left a negro woman by the name of Bat and Abram her son.252

George appears to have died in about 1842/3 from entries in the Marengo County Court Minutes:
• page 293, March Term 1842. Cite Furney Manaly, adm. estate of George Brewer.
• Page 322, April Term 1842. Citation returned marked not found.
• Page 483, 3 April 1843. Est. George Brewer, cite Furney Manly.
• Page 511, 29 April 1843, Est. George Brewer, continued.
Similar continued entries appeared on 3 July 1843, Sept 1843, Oct 1843, Nov 1843, Jan 1844, Feb 1844 and Mar 1844, at which time the court apparently gave up trying to find Furney Manley.

Mathew Brewer was b in Georgia and d in Marengo County, AL1832. He was m to Mary Elizabeth Hammond. His son was George Brewer.
