Re: Proof Needed for Patriotic Service for Burwell Brewer

In Reply to: Proof Needed for Patriotic Service for Burwell Brewer by Betty Stokes of 8988

(2)I have since found that when Burwell bought land in Johnston Co.,NC, the deed included "of Halifax Co." I presume that is North Carolina since it was a NC book.
-------------------------------------------
(1)I have him born about 1730 in Surry Co., VA.
NEW LOCATION HALIFAX CO., NC about 1769
I have him in Johnston/Wake Co., NC in 1773
He was in Wilkes Co., GA by 1788
He died in Oglethope Co., GA. in 1799
-------------------------------------------
(3)Burwell - sometimes called Burrell - died in 1799 so I can't use him for 1812. I could use him for Daughters of American Colonists if I can find the right service. An Original Land would do it. Not bought or inherited. In my notes, I have that someone told me that his land in Wilkes County, GA was a Major's portion. It is my understanding that there were no Military service awards in Georgia. Just that they were eligible for the Lottery. I may be mistaken. Burwell owed a large acreage in Wilkes County.
