Collection Historical Note

According to a family tradition, Henry Brewer first arrived in Texas in 1816, three years after the Magee-Gutierrez Expedition. Settlers from the United States were just beginning to venture back into East Texas, having been driven across the Sabine by the Spanish in 1813. The Nacona Indians had a settlement northwest of Nacogdoches near the base of Flowery Mountain and it was near this peaceable tribe that Henry Brewer supposedly located. However, no supporting documentation for Henry Brewer's presence in Texas has been found prior to 1833, when he bought a tract of land from Joseph Durst.

The 1850 Census for Nacogdoches County indicates that both Henry Brewer and his wife, Susan Mitchell, were natives of North Carolina. They resided for a number of years in Hinds County, Mississippi, where several of their children were born, and a Henry Brewer appears there on a census as late as 1830. His first wife died in 1853, and Brewer married Mrs. Sarah Jane Smith on August 13, 1854. His son, Henry Mitchell Brewer, participated in the Battle of Nacogdoches in 1832 and the Battle of San Jacinto in 1836. Henry Brewer died in Nacogdoches County on January 23, 1865, and was buried in the Brewer Cemetery.
