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.

Brewer Lane, Mooresville, NC

Most towns have streets named after respected citizens. In Mooresville, NC, Brewer Lane was named by our family! Michael Gene Brewer and Frances Earlene Cockrell, both grandchildren of James Robert Brewer (1886-1956) and Bessie Dean Shoemaker (1888-1964), live in sight of the sign.  Mike named the street when he moved there, and he runs a store near Brewer Lane.  Our Nancy Dianne Brewer Sloop (pictured below) stopped by after the reunion and purely by chance discovered the homes of Mike and Earlene.
