Names without a Stone: Robert Edgar BREWER

Because his death certificate merely states that he was buried  in “Jollyville”, we ASSUME that Mr. Brewer is buried in Pond Springs; he may in fact be buried at Rhodes.

Per his death certificate, Robert Edgar BREWER was born in Williamson County Texas on 5 August 1890.  He died in Williamson County Texas 31 October 1955.  Mrs. Rosie Brewer informant.  I have not found Robert or Rosie/Rose/Rosemarie/Rosella in the Social Security Death Index.  I have found no info on Rosie.  Research has shown that his parents were Joshua/Josiah and Della/Delfinia Estelle (BARNES) BREWER.

It appears that the BREWER family migrated to Runnels County Texas sometime between 1890 and 1900.

In 1917, Robert BREWER completed his WWI Draft Registration Card while residing in Chaves, New Mexico.  He was tall, stout, had grey eyes and black hair.  He had a wife and one child.  The card states that he was born in “George” Texas; I believe this was a typo of “Georgetown” Texas (Williamson County Texas).  Descendants say that he was of a fair complexion, not dark at all.

In the 1920 Runnels County Texas census, Robert BREWER was married to Flory (Floy?), and had a daughter and a son.  In the 1930 Runnels County Texas census, Robert was listed as the head of house, married to Pearl F., and had six children.  “Floy” was born in Bridgeport, Wise County Texas 1 May 1894 to Richard Wesley and Anna Elizabeth (BROWN) ROBISON.  She died 29 October 1972 in Monahans, Ward County Texas.

Known children of Robert Edgar and Pearl Floy/Floy Pearl (ROBISON) BREWER (per family researchers):

i.  Arvel J. BREWER, born in Fredonia Texas 25 March 1915, died in Midland Texas 29 February 1968.

ii.  Leona Pearl BREWER, born in Texas 20 July 1918, died 3 January 1999 in Midland Texas.

iii.  Dallman “Dal” Robert BREWER, born in Broken Bow, McCurtain County Oklahoma 27 April 1919, died in Mason County Texas 25 February 1983.

iv.  Della BREWER, born in Texas ca. 1921

v.  Clinton Willis BREWER, born 1 June 1922 in Runnells County Texas, died 1964 in San Diego California.

vi.  Robert Edgar BREWER, born in Texas 6 January 1924, died 2 March 1989 in Odessa Texas.

    Robert Brewer was my grandfather. I am trying to find information on his life. He abandoned his family with Floy Brewer. Floy is the mother of my mother. If you have any information on Robert Brewer please e-mail me. It is doubtful he divorced Floy Brewer as extensive research has yet to find a record of a legal divorce.. The Floy Brewer family was stunned to learn years after he abandoned them that Robert had a second family.

  2. Hi Darwin,

    I’m related to this Brewer family my self. You see I just found out about my father’s side of the family, and my grandmother was Rose Brewer, daughter of William Brewer and Olive “Ollie” Bird.

    Robert Edgar Brewer is my 1st cousin x3 removed. His father Joshua Brewer is my 2nd great grand uncle.
