Need to prove that Oliver Brewer was a son of Joab Brewer.
Joab Brewer (1781 TN - after 1860, TN)
Oliver Brewer (5 Sep 1819, Hancock Co, TN- 3 Jun 1909, Ponca Arkansas) There are no Arkansas death certificates until 1914. There is a Brewer genealogy, "The Ambrose Brewer Family, 1753-1855" by James F Bowman, Pineville KY, 1962, but I doubt I can access it from Colorado where I live. Can anyone help me please?

I found an 1860 census from Hancock County Tennessee that lists

Oliver born 1819 with

wife Elizabeth
son Ely
son George
son Dorchas
son Richard
daughter Elizabeth
daughter Emelia
and an old man named Jaob Brewer living with them born about 1781 in Virginia

This seems to fit your Oliver/Jaob.

Also this looks like an excerpt from the book you mentioned

[wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com]

for a Brewer family tree.

I hope this helps!
