I recently came across a listing of "Militia Officers of Chatham County in the Revolutionary War" and found a Pretteman Brewer who precedes the Prettyman Brewer that is often attributed as a son of Old Ambrose Brewer.As follows:
"List of men commanded by Capt. Stephen Poe- Pretteman Brewer}Serg'ts"
Does anyone know anything about this "Pretteman"?? With no other information to go on, it's hard to place him, but I suspect he might be a grandson of George and Sarah Brewer, or possibly even a son who isn't listed in the will
Other Brewers listed in the same document:
Muster Role of Capt. Joab Brooks Company Howel Brewer
Captain Isaiah Hogan, September 19th, 1772 Henry Brewer George Brewer Olliver Brewer
Please let me know if you know anything about this earlier Pretteman.
