    • MILITARY: John O. Brewer was a Union soldier. He died in hospital as a result of disease before actually engaging in battle. According to Susan Dickson, he snuck home at one point early in his military enlistment to visit his wife. Her brother, an ardent Confederate,came to visit so John hid until he left because the brother said that if he saw him, he would shoot him as quick as any other Yankee. This story can only be partly true, since it appears that Sarah's family were Union supporters overall.

      Interestingly, there is a John O. Brewer in the CSA Rivers' Battery, Arkansas Light Artillery and in the US Army, 1st Regt, Arkansas Infantry, Co. E, however, the Confederate Brewer served after the Union Brewer was already dead and was otherwise not the same person.
