The only thing I know is that William Brewer was actually wilhelm von brewer....apparently changed name upon arriving to states...was a surveyor in the hillls along tenn/ky? Wife was cherokee Jane hill was listed as name...from Hill tribe??
Jane acted as a midwife although apparently wasnt fond of kids...lol loved animals tho...go figure
Hubby's grandfather was contacted about paying back taxes in germany for a castle. They never did and unfortunately due to death cant find any info or paperwork. was looking for more info...am in Europe now and want to get as much info as possible before I go to germany.
Yes, William and Jane had a child named william.

Sorry I cant be of more help...all my trails lead to dead ends

My William I Brewer was born 1869 to Wm. Brewer. I am looking into this, but maybe Wm and Charles W. are related.

I am currently waiting for info on William I. Brewer son of William (and quite possibly son of William and Jane). William I. is on the Dawes rolls (cherokee 1897), and on the the Miller Rolls. The applications pactes for those rolls are supposed to have 3 generations of info on them. Let us cross our fingers. LOL ;)

I shall keep in touch

I am descended from a Sarah Brewer born in 1885 who was possibly Cherokee. I read your posts that the applications for the Dawes roll had 3 generations of info in them. How can I obtain that information?

wilhelm von brewer changed name to william thomas brewer married jane hill cherokee indian had a son named john henry brewer. wilhelm von brewer was from hamburg germany. jane hill disliked children but loved a german shepard dog. almost killed two individuals who stole the dog. she would catch my dad william thomas brewer standing on the edge of the high porch (like they use to be at that time), and take hersilver tipped walking cane and use it as a baseball bat and knock him off the porch. she did kill a man stealing from her root cellar. went to winchester tennessee to look up record on the two but only found when they were married. can't remember the date -- think 1866 or 7.
