James and Elizabeth Brewer, PA., OH., IN.

I am still looking for information on the parents of James Brewer, born Westmoreland Co., PA, moved to Tuscarawas Co., OH. and then to Clay Co., IN.
I have a possible mother in the 1820 census for Unity Twp., Westmoreland Co., PA., but she is listed a "Widow" Brewer, the ages of the children seem to fit somewhat, so I feel I'm on the correct path.
The children of the Brewer Family are:
Sarah b. 25 May 1787
Agnes b. 15 Feb 1790
John b. 17 Oct 1793
Rebecca b. 17 Sep 1796
Sharlotte b. 24 Jul 1799
Abijah b. 28 Apr 1803
James b. 12 May 1806
and also listed in the family bible is
Mary Campbell b. 27 Dec 1817
This bible has been in the Brewer family since James. The printing of the names and the dates varies, so I sure it was put in by different individuals over the years. Of course there are no parents names to start out brick wall!
I have found relatives to John and Abijah, but all of us have the same challenge, no parents' names.
I would love to have any information, if these names sound familiar. I am fairly certain, of the starting point of Westmoreland Co.,PA. as names in the early census, that were from PA., started there. Family names that married in to the Brewers: ARNOLD,and ARMEL/ARNEL, from Westmoreland, PA.
Thank You, Cindy Brewer Dooley
