Regarding Durden-Brinson-Brewer House.
Albern Neal Durden (1828-1904), son of Dennis and Phoebe Dillard Durden, and Eliza Brinson (1833-1911), daughter of Benjamin E. and Mary Lewis Brinson, were married in Swainsboro, Emanuel County, Georgia, on January 23, 1851 by the Reverend Lott Berwick. The young couple first lived at Brinson's Mill Race about eight miles from the site of the Durden House. Eliza's father had a grist mill there, and Albert was miller. Shortly before the Civil War the Durdens moved into an existing small house on the present property. This 1850s hall-parlor house now serves as the dining room and kitchen.
Approximately 1870 the hall-parlor house was moved slightly, and the two-story plantation-plain house was constructed to accommodate the large Durden family. The Durdens had eight children from 1851 to 1872. Their last child, Fannie Ethel, was born in the c.1870 house.
