Yes, with all this, it suggests that William Brewer and Ann Cato is John Brewers Uncle and Aunt (William being a brother to Lanier Sr.) I find your sheet work marvelously smooth includeing Emberson, because #1 somebody has to fill that spot, #2 with a Brewer surname, #3 the dates fit, #4 the given name Emberson does run in this line at this time span, and #5 there's not very many familes left he could have belonged to. I don't have that book eighter, just a few pages that Ben Brewer sent me from Ky. I plan to order it soon if it doesn't sell out again before I come up with the money. If you plan going dna, you will have to get a Brewer male member of the family to take it. I only used the Y for starters, because this carries the same patterns unalterd for hundreds of years from father to his sons and w/o any interference with the female. As far as a way for Johns,Cornelius ect. mother is concerned, I think that would envole MitochondriaDNA which goes mothers mothers mother ect. , so this would have to be done by a found desendant from Laniers wife. I guess this is why they say mtdna is a little bit more complicated. I do know that every male has xy chromosomes and every female has xx chromosomes, so every male gets the exact y from his fater and every female gets an x from her father and an x from her mother, and all these x's and y's have their very own unique alleles................Doug.
