William Brewer m. Phanah Risden
Posted by: Rhynda Peterson (ID *****8758) Date: June 23, 2010 at 11:18:51

Hello Brewer connections. I am descended from this line through William's son Oliver who was born about 1785 in Chatham County, NC. Every source I have seen shows that William married Phanah Risden (many var on name)in 1781 in Wilkes County, NC. That makes everything work fine for Phanah to have been Oliver's mother, but his other children (incl Thomas, George, Joseph and others) appear to have been born earlier than his marriage to Phanah if the 1781 date is correct. Does anyone have primary documentation of this marriage? Or is anyone aware of an earlier marriage by this Willim Brewer, son of Oliver Brewer and wife Rebecca (and of the George Brewer-Sarah Lanier line). Thanks.
