I assume you are refering to Henry Brewer b. 1776 NC d.1865 Nacogdoches Co., TX, son of William and Ann Shepherd Brewer. On Ancestry Family listings there are siblings listed, am not sure how accurate they are. Some are listed with the last name "Brewer" and some as "Viars". The Brewer siblings are:
Nancy Brewer 1770-1845
Fanny Brewer 1776-
Elizabeth "Betsy" Brewer 1782-
William Brewer 1784-
Thomas Brewer 1786-1892
Charity Brewer 1794

Some of the "Viars" listing have the same first names and same dates.

I thought I had seen a will or something, but since I don't have it entered into my family tree, then guess I didn't. Henry descends from a branch off my husband's Brewer line, but is a direct ancestor of my niece's husband. These names might be something to start searching. All are very common in most of the Brewer lines that descend from George Brewer b. abt 1670 VA and Sarah Lanier b.1686 VA.
