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.

Lucretia Stout Brewer's Antiques

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.
