Reuben Brewer (Bruer) NC

Looking for parents and siblings for Reuben Bruer (Brewer). This is what I know:
Reuben Bruer(Brewer)first appeared on the 1820 Census of the portion of Rowan Co, NC that became Davidson Co in 1822.
Reuben was listed as between 16 & 26. The only other Brewers listed were Thomas Brewer, Henry Brewer, both age between 26-45, and John Bruer (Brewer) and Henry Bruer (Brewer) both age between 26-45. Many of the early Brewers used the German spelling Bruer.

Reuben is listed on the 1830 Census, Davidson Co, NC age 30-40 along with John, and Henry ages 30-40. Reuben is listed on the 1840 census, Davidson Co along with John and Henry.

Reuben is listed in the 1850 Census of Forsyth with no wife. Listed with him is a dau Angeline, b abt 1842, Ruth Brewer b abt 1873 who is probably Reubenís mother, William b abt 1818, Reubenís brother and a sister, Sarah, b abt 1822.
Note: It is doubtful that Reuben moved. Forsyth Co was formed in 1850 about the time the census was taken and there was confusion as to where the line was. Most of the Brewers in Forsyth & Davidson Co lived on the Border of the two counties.

Reuben, age 46, is listed in the 1860 census, Davidson Co with wife, Sarah b abt 1822, (apparently his 2nd wife) along with a son, John E. b abt 1849 and a son Bryan M. b abt 1859. Neither Reuben or his family are listed in the census of NC. After 1860. He must have moved out of NC.
If anyone has any information as to who Reubenís parents were or names of any of his siblings, please contact me. Thanks in advance.
