Margaret & Thomas Brewer - Orange NC
Posted by: Matt Hartley (ID *****0137) Date: May 05, 2006 at 18:23:43
  of 8988

I am confused in regards to some postings and other information online regarding Thomas Brewer, who was born in 28 Sep 1768 and died 22 Sep 1844. This I am sure of, and can verify based on his tombstone in Cane Creek Baptist Church Cemetary (

His wife is Nancy, whose tombstone is also on the site and reads:

b. - d. 15 Feb 1844
Wife Of Thos Brewer Ae 65 Yrs, 6 Mos, 15 Ds.

If this information is correct, she would have bene born on July 30, 1778. However, much of the information this and other sites points to Thomas Brewer's wife being Nancy (Lloyd) or Petty, and dates of birth either 1771 or 1783.

Much confusion seems to be involved here. I know my ancestry goes up to Margaret Brewer, and I know her father is Thomas Brewer. Anyone work out Nancy?

Thanks in advance!
