There is no concrete evidence that Eliza Ann Caroline Brewer was actually the daughter of Matthew Brewer and his wife Mary (Polly). She is not mentioned in Matthew's will or the estate settlement. The only record I have found for her is the record of her marriage to Philemon Hodges. Thus, I have included her as a daugher of Matthew purely on the basis that she was about the right age and lived and was married in Marengo Co AL in the same general time frame as did Matthew and Polly.

Thank you for the information about the possible descendancy of Mary Ann Hodges from Gov. Hampton. If this is true, this would presumably mean that either Philemon's mother or Eliza's mother was daughter of Gov. Hampton. We should check this out.
