Census, 1930, Chatham Co, NC. Ruffus J Brewer is 63, a farmer who owns his farm, married first at 28. Living with him are sister Amanda (67, widow) and uncle Grady (22, single, farm laborer). (Chatham Co, Bear Creek Twp, ED 5, sheet 236) [I can't find any mention of a sister Amanda. Since she is a widow, her last name should not be Brewer if she is really a sister. Similarly, I can't find an uncle Grady, and having an uncle of age 22 is highly unlikely.

Occupation: Farmer.
