I found the book very confusing, contradictory and full of highly suspicious info.
Page 118 entry for William Brewer son of Oliver son of George, b 1752 Brunswick, Co., VA d 1835 m Mary.
"Deed Book 7 page 37 Brunswick Co., VA
William Brewer and wife to James Harris in 1761."
This William Brewer would have been 9 years old! Show me a state that will let a 9 year old boy sell land or marry for that matter.
He then ties this William to the Rev War pension S3085 Cert 1817 E. TN Agency.

Obviously he has munged together two different William Brewers, one being the Rev War soldier and the other who was a good bit older and married to Mary.
