My husband and I love to do genealogy research and get to know our ancestors who have left us such a great legacy. My greatest focus lately has been on my dad's side of the family, especially the Brewer line of Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama. My favorite is Isaac Brewer (1763-1852), who is believed to be my 5 greats grandfather. He was born in what later became Wilkes County, Georgia, but was then part of the Creek and Cherokee Nation. He grew up in North Carolina and there served in the Revolutionary War. During the war he was briefly taken prisoner by the British in South Carolina and later, in the Battle of Cane Creek, was shot in that back during an ordered retreat. A few years after the war he moved to the Oconee River region of Georgia, which was then the frontier, where he was an Indian fighter and Indian spy during the Oconee Indians Wars. During one battle he was stabbed, but survived. He later served in the War of 1812. Isaac eventually moved to eastern Tennessee and later to Talladega County, Alabama near Silver Run. There he died at home in 1852 at the age of 89. I have created a website on which to post documents, photos, and also life stories I have written on members of the Brewer line. The URL is listed above. I am also writing a book about Isaac Brewer's life.A few other surnames of interest to me are Britton, Lightle, Waters, Reno, Odell, Hunter, Coulter, Hitchcock, Fitz Farrell, and Linder.Campbell's line includes such surnames as Birch, Dayton, Fuller, White, Andersen, Jensen, and Kellar. Some of Campbell's ancestors came to America in the 1800s with the LDS Pioneers, but others came much earlier on the Mayflower, and one relative even was one of the signers of the U.S. Constitution! Some areas that his ancestors settled were Fountain Green, Ephraim and Manti, Utah and also Shelly, Idaho and Overton, Nevada.If you would like a copy of any photos that we have posted on findagrave, in their original size, or would like additional info or have info to share with us, don't hesitate to contact us!Written by Mary
