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's Grocery Owned by James Robert Brewer. Plus Bristol Irene Brewer Huffman, one of our most senior family members

This photo was taken in the 1940s in front of Brewer's Grocery, owned by James Robert Brewer (1886-1956), in Mooresville, NC.  James' family is discussed later in this blog.  Pictured here are Bristol Irene Brewer Huffman (born 1927) on the left and Josie Cochran.  Bristol Irene is the daughter of James Robert. See her picture today on Page 2. Josie is not a direct member of our Brewer family, but we're happy to present her picture.  James Robert cut a door in the master bedroom of his home and built the store connected to the side of the house.
