Willis was killed when someone stole Glass's mother. Do you know the story about Glass? My parents live in Newark and one of my sisters is in Concord and the other is also in Newark. I live close to Dallas, Texas.I have so many Brewer stories, that I could probably write my own book. My dad bought me the same book, the one written by Gary Perky. It is really interesting. It has a picture of my Great Grandfather when he was a child with the ohters in the Franklin Layfette Brewer immediate family. I would love to hear more of what you know. I know that all of Willis' sons fought in the Civil War and that James Willis fought for the north and the others fought for the south. I have documentations of their military records. I also have copies of Willis Brewers land records if you would like any of them.
