In 1947 Edward Denton Brewer, 610 National Bank of Tulsa Building, Tulsa, OK, published THE HOUSE OF BREWER*. This book starts with Thomas BREWER who lived from 1540 to 1610 and who married a Miss Drake. His son John, it is said, was born in England in 1565 and died in VA in 1635. He married Mary Grove and his will was probated in London, England. John, his wife and three children came to America shortly after 1624. He was a member of the House of Burgesses in 1629. His children were John, Frances, Mary, Margaret and Roger. This last John, according to this source, was the father of George BREWER who settled in Brunswick County, Virginia and died there in 1744 leaving his second wife, Alice and a host of progeny. It is through his son, Henry, that the author claimed his origin and in his book he dealt at length with that branch of the family. In 1936, the late Warren Harold Brewer of Terre Haute, Indiana, prepared a mimeographed paper bound manuscript of the Brewer family. He began with a Thomas Brewer and took up his descendents. This record is not of any great interest to the majority of the Howell C. BREWER clan. The first wife of George BREWER was Sarah Lanier. Mrs. Royal Eason Ingersoll, 1202 Indiana Avenue, LaPorte, IN, has done much research on the Lanier family and has touched upon the Sarah (Lanier) BREWER branch. Sarah was the d/o John Lanier and his wife Sarah (Edmunds) Lanier was the d/o William Edmunds and his wife Elizabeth Edmunds. It is from Howell Edmunds, s/o this William, that the name of Howell seems to have gotten into the BREWER family. Three of the sons of George BREWER, that is Nicholas, Howell and Lanier, moved south and settled in North Carolina. All available information points toward Ambrose Brewer, father of Howell Cobb BREWER, as being a s/o either Howell or Lanier. Several people as of this date are devoting considerable effort to research on the BREWER family. Two of these stand out among the others, namely, Mrs. Janice B. Reddin, 714 North Main Street, Findlay, Ohio, and Mr. L. D. Brewer, 1811 East 11th Street, Long Beach 13, California. Some members of the Howell Cobb BREWER family, however, are becoming authorities in their own right. Any inquiry about this family should be directed to Dr. Clinton Congleton, Barbourville, Kentucky. He is Secretary and Treasurer of the annual Howell Cobb BREWER family reunion and will either answer any question received or refer it to the best source. p 1: I. Ambrose BREWER b in VA in 1753 d in TN in or after the year 1854. His Children: 1. Joab BREWER (1780's) 2. Fredrick BREWER (1780's) m-Lydia (___) 3.

Pleasant BREWER (1800) m-Elizabeth Seals 8. Lucinda BREWER 9. Ona BREWER It is believed that the children shown above belonged to the family of Ambrose. It is suspected that there were others. Tradition in one branch of the family has it that Ambrose had twelve boys and this source named a George and a Samuel that are not included here. The 1830 United States Census of Hawkins Co, TN show him with a family of young children which suggests that he may have reared the second family. 1.

BREWER (5 Aug 1818) m-Catherine Sheard 18. Thomas BREWER m-Anna White The names of Joab BREWER's children as shown above, have been taken from several sources and are given with uncertainty. There could very well have been other children of Joab and likewise, some listed here could very well belong in another family. This list is, however, from the information now [1962] available the best that can be offered. p 2: 2.

Ona BREWER D/o Ambrose BREWER: No information pp 16-17: BREWER Record Ambrose BREWER (No. 1) started with two children from Holland to come to the United States. He took sick on the ship and died, leaving his two children, a boy and a girl. The boy's name was Luther. The girl married a man by the name of Webber and left for some of the first settlements. It was never known what became of her. Luther BREWER raised a family. Some of his boys probably settled in the northeast states-VT and other states. One of his sons was named Ambrose (No. 2) who had several sons, some were named as follows: Joab, Moab, Sam, Howell (No. 1), Mit, Ambrose (No. 3) and six more boys, names not known. Ambrose (No. 3) who was called "Dodger," Sam and Howell (No. 1) came into Hancock Co, TN from Buncomb Co, NC that being the place that Ambrose (No. 2) lived and raised those ten boys. Some of the brothers went to AL and MS and others remained and stayed in NC. Howell (No. 1) later settled in Owsley Co, KY. He remained in KY, raised a big family, names as follows: Ambrose (No. 4), Joab, George (No. 1), Jim (No. 1) Bill (No. 1), Howell (No. 2) and Orville. Several girls, Polly Cope, Nancy Seals, Sally Elrod and Patsy Isaacs. The above were his first children. His second wife's children were Nick, John (No. 1), Morris and Valentine and a girl Emily McCollum. Ambrose (No. 4) settled in Hancock Co, TN, and later came to Cumberland Gap, then from there to Jackson Co, KY, raising a big family.
