Edgar, Here is some info that might link together, my dates aren' for sure--My family link is to Lanier Brewer (I am glad to get your date and state) married to a Joanna unknown, listed as a Cherokee woman that all. They had Ambrose Brewer (1753?), he married a Joanna Russell who was also listed as Cherokee. He had two wives, Joanna first then Mary Oma Richardson. They had ( I think JOanna and Ambrose had Charity Brewer (9/24/1777) who married Shadrack Maynard. Charity was married twice, John Holland (?), but her and Shadrack had Mahala Maynard who married my gggggrandfather, Willis B. Brewer who was born in NC, 1799.
Hope this helps a bit.
Good luck, phyllis , email@example.com
