Has anyone ever verified the tribe that George W Brewer, wife Jane Butler, was related to? From what I gather, Jane was either the daughter of a minister or a indian agent in or around Moore County MC -- Methinks that the Amerinds in this are were Tuscarora - George was reputed to be 1/2 thru his mother, an association with Lanier Brewer Jr - someone had this woman's name - and I am curious as heck where it came from and how it was obtained and verified -- George had 6 brothers that have been identified out of a number of them; whether 1/2 or full - unknown - my GGG-GF Solomon Brewer was one of them --

Hi Sam,

I am interested in your Brewers. My husband descends from Solomon Brewer born about 1794 and died about 1854 in Powesheik County, IA. He is buried there in Wilson Graveyard. Our Solomon had siblings: Enock, Willis, Andrew, James, Christina, Elizabeth, Mary, Mariah and Nellie (there could have been more).

If this sounds familiar to you please contact me at brewer1954@earthlink.net.

Thanks and God bless,

Anna Brewer, MO
