Thank you for your response. Congratulations on your dna test, it’s nice that you’ve found some answers through the results.
I’ll have to study your message more, but meanwhile may I ask a few questions?What about the generations between William and Joseph?According to the files online this William you mention was born about 100 years before Joseph Brewer (who was born about 1808).
Do you know who the father and paternal grandfather of your Joseph Brewer are??
You say William Brewer was married to “Susannah 'Amme' Cato??”.Do the question marks you placed after her name mean you’re not sure of her last name or was William’s wife Susannah, a Cato?
As for Emberson Brewer who my message was about. I don’t know for certain who his parents are. But John Brewer of 1820 Franklin County, TN, might be the only choice since Emberson must have married Elizabeth Counts there at about that time. Your Joseph (supposedly the son of this same John Brewer) named a son Emberson Brewer, Black Sam’s brother.
As for “John and Phebe” and “William and Ann”, these names came from things I’ve read online, and gathered the census records myself. I’ve been trying to see if the pieces fit, and they do. But any challenges or corrections are very helpful.
Looking forward to hearing who Joseph's father and grandfather are.
