Below is an article, dated September 1905, from the Statesville Landmark concerning historic artifacts owned by Lucretia Stout Brewer (1828-1922) wife of Wiley Brewer. Lucretia and Wiley are ancestors of most of the people reading this blog. It would be wonderful if we knew where these artifacts, particularly the vest, are today. We assume Lucretia was speaking of the Stout side of her family. There have been suggestions the Stouts have a Revolutionary War Patriot in their ancestry.
