Please see her husband's Hackler-33 profile for information from 1858 thru 1878. Seen as Thersa, Thurza, T J, Jane, Thursey and others throughout the record trail. 'Theresa' which is what is engraved into her gravestone is what is used here.

Update Dec. 2015 Linear/Lineer Brewer married Elizabeth Phipps (daughter of John Phipps) on April 27, 1830 in Grayson. Parents noted on death certificate= Lynard Brewer & UNK Phipps--both from Virginia. Also noted is that she is a widow.

Update 11-4-13, Father's name is Lynier Brewer/mother's is Eliza. {Elizabeth?) on the marriage record-see Jacob's profile.

1900 Census

See photo and Jacob Burgess' profile for data. Listed as T J Hackler / Mother and living with sons Jacob & William in Tampa, Marion, Kansas.

Theresa lists being the mother of 8 children with 5 living. If this is correct and the record for the unnamed infant son is correct also, the Sarah at Find A Grave Memorial# 150353004 can NOT be correct. If Sarah is Jacob & Theresa's child, she must have died before 1880. She is not with the family in 1880 or in any of the other records I've located so far.

1910 Census

See photo. Listed again as T J Hackler and living with son William in Tampa, Marion, Kansas. Most of the family is in this area. Jacob and David are enumerated on the same page.

1917 Death

See photo of DC and see her FaGR memorial for much more information including links to her parents and some siblings. Her great-grandson Melvin's Hackler-151 wife Nadine Turner-15581 has supplied an excellent biography for Theresa Jane at this memorial. I believe that her son William L. Hackler-121 was the informant noted on the DC.

Burial: Belton Cemetery
Belton, Cass, Missouri
Find A Grave Memorial# 143696131


  1. Another child is listed in the 1870 Census between Enoch & David but I cannot make out the spelling and have not researched further. By????? 5 years old. First name is noted here as it is spelled on her DC--her gravestone notes THERESA. I believe that this Thersa is the same as BREWER-1 but the first name on that profile is misspelled to be Theresa. I've contacted the profile manager who hasn't been active here since 2009 to propose a merge (10-9-13). Profiles merged (Mar-14)
