John M. Brewer was a son of Asa L. Brewer (c1825-c1865) and his wife, Martha Ann (?probably Wallace?) from North Carolina. (Martha resided, before marriage, with William James Wallace of NC and his wife, Rose Ann Page, who are buried at Cooktown Cemetery.) John M. was the husband of Melvina Conner, daughter of Duckery "Duck" Conner and Ada (Unknown).
John's father, Asa L. Brewer, was a son of Asa Brewer (c1788-c1856), son of David Brewer who came from Johnston County, North Carolina around 1800 and settled on lands just south of Lake View. John M. resided on the lands of his father and grandfather (part of the old David Brewer lands) on the west side of Highway 9 just south of Lake View. John's small home is still standing (2012) in a field on the misnamed "Bass" Road (see photo caption.)
Florence Page, a granddaughter of John M., said John's brother, George Brewer, resided in a log cabin that stood on the property when she was a girl. John's brother, George, was buried on adjoining lands (more of the old David Brewer lands) in the Joel B. Hayes Cemetery. Others in this Brewer family, including John's parents, Asa L. and Martha, are also believed buried there.

- Asa L. Brewer (A. C. Brewer on his tombstone at Bear Swamp Church) mar. Moniley Murray.
