These names are very familiar.I am the 2Ggrandson of Nathaniel David Jackson Brewer (1816-1906).There are several researchers of this line that are all stuck on N.D.J. Brewer and we have very little now to go on. I believe he was related to Benjamin Franklin Brewer however no one in the family can remember if they were cousins, uncle/nephew or just how. (They lived in the same area, belonged to the same church, their sons grew up together and served in the same units in the Civil War...) We all believe that NDJ's father was James W. Brewer (abt1775-1838) and James' father was Nathaniel.I have found a census record for Nathaniel Brewer from Chatham County, NC that has a Nathaniel, Daniel and James listed among his children. I can only assume that the Elder Nathaniel Brewer must have been born in the early to mid 1700's. It appears that there are a few records in Chatham County attributed to this Nathaniel Brewer which may shed some light but I have not had a chance to go there yet to take a look.
I know it's a long shot, but do you think any of your lines might meet somewhere in the middle with mine?At the moment long shots seem to be all I am left with.
