I am a descencant of the Brewer families from Smith and Simpson Counties in Mississippi. These counties are very near toHinds County. My mother was Mary Alice Brewer (b. 1926-d. 1976), daughter of Albert Julius Brewer ( son of Harryor Harvey and Ellen (Unknown surname) and wife Bessie Martin (daughter of Newton Martin & Carolyn Robinson). The Brewer family's Brewer or Brouwer anscestor(s) came from the Netherlands. These families also have Native American-Cherokee and Choctaw ancestry. My Brewer's could be related to yours.
