Pogue Family Genealogy Forum
Thanks so much for the info on Martha Jane Pogue's parents. I have been looking for them for a while. Martha married Emberson Jerry Brewer on 19 May 1877. I found the marriage records in Alabama marriages online BkC p 126. Jerry was married previously to Rebecca(his brother's widow). After her death, he married Martha and they had six surviving children: Mary E (Mollie) b 1879, Della b 1882, Walter C. b 1883, Ida Frances b 1891, Richard Harvey (my g-grandfather) born 1892 d 21 Sept 1932 murdered by a single gunshot to the head, and Robert McDonald b. 1894. These names and dates are from Roy Brewer Jr., who sent my dad a booklet of his census results and discussions with family members back in the 1980's. My g-grandfather, Harv Brewer was a bootlegger during prohibition, so I'm guessing the entire family had something to do with moonshine. Hope this helps.
