A few years ago I stumbled on a probate for Nathaniel Brewer of Chatham Co., NC on a microfilm at the FHL of the LDS microfilm #1906925, item 2, Chatham Co., NC Estate Records 1772 - 1806 filed under Thomas Brewer.
Anyway, these are the heirs listed.
Thomas Brewer Daniel Brewer Nathaniel Brewer, Jr. William Brewer George Brewer James Brewer Charles Vickers and Patience his wife Jno Mebane and Lucy his wife Wm Morgan and Milley his wife Chas. Powel and Susannah his wife Levy Powel and Nancy his wife Frances Brewer
In the records, it appears that Thomas Brewer is already deceased, although I would double check if I thought I was a descendent.
I can't put my finger on the info, but many of these children were in either TN or KY, someone researching the line can verify where they moved to.
