Buckner Brewer married Susannah Robinson in Greensville County VA Feb 4,1808.Family tradition has Green Berry Brewer as Buckner's son, however I have not found any record of it.I have quite a bit on Susannah Robinson. daughter of James Robinson and Winifred Fox of Brunswick and Greensville Cty, VA.Robinsons were descended fromtoAvents, and Rives, etc.
Buckner is in 1810 Greensville Cty, Census and the 1830 Chatham Cty, NC Census.
Susannah and Buckner are mentioned in James Fox Robinson's will in 1838 in Morgan Cty, GA.ItSeems a lot of Greensville families ended up there. Drury Brewer is there with a large family.Could Drury and Buckner have been brother?.No one seems to know the parents of Drury Brewer.I really would like to find Buckner's parents and if Green Berry fits in anywhere. Buckner or Green Berry could of been James William Brewer's father. James William or J. W. Brewer, my husband's Great Grandfather came to TX in about 1853 with Susannah Brewer , John Jones Brewer, B. W. Brewer and Benjamin Brewer and Settled in Freestone Cty, TX. B. W. could have been Buckner or Benjamin.B. W. is listed in 1850 census as 45 but could this be a mistake, Buckner would have been 75.
John Jones was referred to as "Uncle John"by the family but I don't know if he was J.W.s Uncle or Brother.Green Berry Brewer had a league of land in Freestone Cty Tx, but JW settled on some ofDurham Avant's league of land also in the county. Susannah sister was married to an Avant, and the Robinson’s were descended from Thomas Avent of VA.
