BREWER,FOSTER,LANHAM I am trying to find more information on Joseph Wesley BREWER and Emaline Elizabeth LANHAM who were married in 1843. Their son James Albert BREWER was my g-grandfather.

Any information would be appreciated.

My great grandmother, Mattie Belle GAINES, filled out a family tree in my baby book. In it she stated that she was the granddaughter of Bernard GAINES and Martha POINDEXTER. I was taken to the graves in Henry Co., KY, "to visit the ancestors", as a child. I have no doubts that this is my line. But, as Thomas F. GAINES was not mentioned in his father Bernard 's will, I need proof. "Barney gave him his settlement early, so that Tom & Martha could get married. "
Now, I need more than this oral confirmation that Thomas was Bernard's son. Since Bernard was born in that portion of Fayette County that became Jessamine County two years after his birth, I hope to find some old family records of relatives in Fayette County.
