I would like to find out who now has the old Brewer family Bible that once belonged to Howell Brewer Jr (b. abt 1742 in Brunswick County, Virginia and died before 1851 in Western Tennessee). I read in the Revolutionary War Pension Application file for his son Isaac Brewer (born 1763 in Wilkes County, Georgia and died 1852 in Talladega County, Alabama) that Isaac's younger brother George Brewer of Wayne County, Tennessee had the old family Bible as of 1846, where Isaac's birth was recorded. I would love to know who has that old Bible now. I am assuming that it was passed down through George Brewer's descendants. George Brewer was born about 1777 in Chatham or Orange County, North Carolina and, as mentioned above, was living in Wayne County, Tennessee in 1846. Please email me if you have any info about this Bible or its present location at Isaac Brewer is my 5 greats grandfather.
