Brewer Family Genealogy Forum
Helloooo Lyman, and welcome to the Old Ambrose Brewer Insanity Club. The Bowman-Congleton booklet, "The Ambrose Brewer Family" (published 1962) confirms most of your information, although you seem to have a little more. Everything holds right down to your Howell -- he shows as a child of William and Elizabeth, b. 1859 (close enough!) but it says he died in infancy.
However, this book focuses on the author's direct line -- the rest of us are sorta footnotes, so it's posible that Howell didn't die in infancy.
There are a bunch of us in the Old Ambrose line who are trying to straighten this mess out. Let me know if you're interested, and I'll send the email address.
Regards -- Judy
