Jacob Brawler
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

He moved from Tar River, North Carolina to Liberty Precinct, (Marion County), South Carolina, and settled sixteen miles below the town of Marion. He married twice, and had twenty-three sons and one daughter. During the Revolutionary War, some of his sons were drafted but he insisted that all of his sons go and fight. He served along with them under General Francis Marion. He, as well as twenty-two of his sons, died in the war. The surviving son was crippled and died a few years later. The widow of Jacob Brawler had no other living relatives, so the local parish took care of her.

William Shaw, who lived during this time and knew the Brawler family, confirmed this story to Rev. Alexander Gregg.
