Hi! Dean -

I have a slight problem in finding my George Brewer. Rumor has it that Burwell Brewer is his father but, I believe his father is Oliver Brewer. Both are sons of George Brewer: Oliver from Sarah Lanier and Burwell from Alice Burwell. My George is listed as George Brewer Sr., on the Hinds,Co., MS census of 1820 and 1830. His wife's name is Hannah (confirmed by a marriage license in LA for one of his daughters where his wife's name is also listed as Hannah. It's a long story. She is the daughter of Balaam Thompson and Olive Melton.) The Hinds Co., MS census lists his birth time frame bet. 1760-1770. My question is this: Do the 40 odd pages of estate records for Burwell Brewer list a son named George and if so, can you figure out his age? Actually any references to a George would be interesting. Where did you find the estate papers? I'd like to lay my hands on them. Thanks so much.
