Hi,
If you will look for the estate records, you will find Burwell Bledsoe Brewer. He came to St Stephens, Mississippi Territory, where before 1819 he married Elizabeth "Gilly" Brewer, daughter of George B. Brewer (son of William Brewer and wife Susannah who moved from Brunswick Co Va to, eventually, St Stephens. William was son of George Brewer by his second marriage to Burwell. I don't have my notes in front of me)
Burwell and Gilly's granddaughter Julia was my husband's grandmother.
She lived to a ripe old age, dying while my husband was in Korea.
