Elijah Brewer of Elmira in Chemung and Tioga Counties in mid-southern New York by ca 1799 was born 1777 and married Margret.Presume he died before 1830 census when Margaret is listed as head of household. They had children John, Elizabeth, Belinda, Richard, Daniel, Phoebe, Fanny, Griswold, Abraham b 1816 who married Hannah Dunn, David b. 1818 who married Rebecca Piggot, and Abigail G. Elijah may have had brother named Abraham also in Elimra 1799.There is a listing for Abraham and E. (Elijah?) in Elmira 1799 tax list.Son David moved to near Portsmouth Ohio in 1838 there marrying Rebecca Piggott. In 1841 they moved to Farmington, Fulton Co, Illinois. Rebecca died 1888, David 1893.Some of their children moved on to Wayne Co, Iowa.In seeking to gain further background on this family I'd like to share with others researching Brewers in these locations.
