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.

Descendants of Elizabeth Caroline Brewer

Elizabeth Caroline Brewer (1855-before 1910) was the daughter of Wiley Brewer and the wife of James C. Potts (1851-1925).  Elizabeth was born in Chatham County, NC, moved to Alexander County, NC, and eventually to Watauga County, NC.  Some members of the family migrated to Avery County, NC and eastern Tennessee.  We have no photos of Elizabeth Caroline, but her first born child, Minnie Bertha Potts (1877-1955), is pictured below on the right.  Minnie married Henry Walter Tate (1863-1945).  Hattie Lena Potts (1880-1952) also was the daughter of James and Elizabeth Potts.  She is pictured below on the left.  Hattie married Roby Lee Townsend (1883-1971).  





James Walter Potts (1885-1959) was the son of James and Elizabeth Potts.  He married Etta Mae Brinkley.



We honor our most senior living descendants.  James Dale Treadway (born 1933) is the great grandson of Elizabeth Caroline Brewer Potts, grandson of Minnie Bertha Potts Tate, and son of Mary Lenora Tate Treadway (1899-1944).  Jim served his country with a career in the US Army and retired as a Colonel.
