Henry Brewer - Cherokee County Alabama - killed at Shiloh

I find Henry Brewer on the 1860 census living in Cherokee County Alabama with

his wife, Lavintia (Tracy)- many spelling variations on her name in the few records I've found on her

dau, Mary J Brewer - married Reubin T Wood

son, Gilbert Brewer - incorrectly enumerated as Joseph Brewer - married (1) Ellen Harwell and (2) Winnie Ella Gardner

Joseph Tracy - who I am pretty sure is Lavintia's brother, Jasper Tracy who married Eliza Cox

Henry Brewer and Lavinaty Tracy were married Bartow County, GA in 1854.

And Henry signed up with the Cherokee Davis Guards (later consolidated with the Alabama 55th, which is where his CW records are found).

Henry was killed at Shiloh in 1862.

Records on Henry and Lavinity are scarce and I would love to find out who their parents were and connect with other researchers of this line to compare notes.
