There seems to a question, in many Brewer researcher's minds, about where Nicholas Brewer III fits in to the family tree. This is what I have:
l. Nicholas, b. c1720, son of George and Sarah Lanier Brewer d. c1792 m. Sarah
2. Nicholas II, b. c1741-49, son of Nicholas Sr. and Sarah Brewer d. c1820 m. Winifred
3. Nicholas III, b. 10 Jan 1812, son of Isham and Pherabe Brewer, grandson of Nicholas II and Winnie. m. Sarah Noble, b. c1812 d. c1870, daughter of Elisha Noble. ch: l. Elisha 2. Calvin 3. Caroline 4. Elizabeth 5. Margaret 6. Augusta "Gusti" 7. Albert 8. Lewis C."Cass" 9. Susan 10. Clinton "Clint"
There may be other Nicholases in some other family of Nicholas II's children, that I do not know of, but the above is what I have.I feel the more information we can acumulate the better it is.If someone else has a Nicholas that they believe should be No. 3 please let us know about him.
