Honoring Our Ancestors

This blog is dedicated to the Brewer Family of North Carolina. These pages present our recent family gatherings and more distant family history.
We have an ongoing effort to capture the Brewer genealogy to best honor our ancestors. We've identified our ancestors who moved from Mecklenburg County, Virginia to Orange and Chatham Counties, NC as early as 1750. In the 1800s, we saw a migration to Alexander and Iredell Counties in NC, Tennessee, and Kentucky. By the 20th century our family made their homes all over the nation.

We lost our most senior Brewer descendant on July 17, 2014.  Gentry was born on November 7, 1921. He was the son of Dewey Samuel Brewer (1898-1977); the grandson of Jerry Milton Lee Brewer (1861-1903); and the great grandson of Wiley Brewer (1832-1864).   Gentry lost his wife of 72 years, Billie on March 19, 2014.
