There was no reference to a Burrell B. in his papers. The one child referenced that most people are not aware of is Bledsoe Brewer.

I finally visited the Georgia State Archives two weeks ago and fond the book on the American State papers which references all of the Brewers. There sure are a lot of Brewers referenced in it. It did not answer any questions for me but only complicated them more. Do you think there are two Brewer lines that are mentioned in this book. The reason I ask is that the John Brewer I am interested in that was married to Patience Sibley had a son born around 1820. He married an Elizabeth Wheat in MS. In the book there are numerous references of both Brewers and Wheats together. I know the Wheats came from GA. AS I mentioned previously the Moungers lived near some Brewers in Warren County. I also noticed where Ozborne Brewer was in the area also, in addition Rawley Greene. Rawley signed as a witness to Ozborne Brewers land sale to a John Stembridge in 1794 or 1797 off of Log Dam Creek in Hancock county near the Oconeee River.

I noticed where the George Brewer refernced in your message and a John Brewer appear to have been lawyers and involved in a number of land claims. These seem to be the Brewers who lived in the St. Stephens area. My question to you is this. There are two terms I see often. "East of the Pearl RIver" and West of the Tombigbe". Can one assume that when it states East of Pearl River that they are talking about lands that are now in MS? Then again, the Tombigbe River is fairly close to the MS state line and some point in the middle of the state actually runs in MS. Your thoughts would be welcome.

I shot about 50 pages of this book. I am trying to locate the various creek references and finding them on a topographic map to determine what state they are actually in.
