Ruben Brewton was born on December 14, 1830 in Mississippi. He married Martha ____ before 1864. Martha was born on 7 June 1844 in Texas, according to the 1880 Runnels County Census. They had four known children before Ruben's death on 17 December 1880. Unsure what the cause of death was, but the 1880 Runnels County Census shows that Ruben was suffering from a broken leg. Martha later married Elijah J. Killen on 9 August 1891 in Runnels County (Book 1, Page 104). Martha died on 24 December 1917 and is buried beside R. B. in the Midway Cemetery in northwestern Coleman County, Texas.
