In Reply to: Benjamin BREWER/Catherine Wellinger by Jan Longest of 8972

Here's what I have on Benjamin Brewer and family. This family is involved with the Higgs/Hicks family. My ancestress, Catherine married or was a sister to Jonathan Higgs who died by 1778 and is probated in Yohogania co, VA. She married Peter Stacy and moved to KY and then to Clark county, Indiana. So I can see a definite possibility for relationship -- just don't know what. Any ideas?
