I thought my grgr grandfather, Jefferson Brewer, was Reuben's son until I found Reuben's estates settlement listing his heirs.Jefferson had a close connection to this family since he was the administrator of Mary's estate. He named two of his children William R. and Hubbard.He left NC after Mary's death.His son William R., my great grandfather, was born in TN in 1852.Jefferson was in Bradley Co TN on the 1860 Census.
