MIL RR-112 Brewer Rev War Pension File Abstracts VDWhite

There are four pages with numerous BREWERs, one BROUWER (Garret) and six BROWERs. The veterans are from states all along the eastern seaboard, from New England and New York, to the Carolinas.

Pension Files of Revolutionary War veterans, and their widows and heirs, have long been available online at Heritage Quest, a site that is accessible for free through a subscribing institution (such as a public Library). Not all that long ago, Ancestry.com began access to digital images of Revolutionary War pension files as well. The files found at Ancestry.com contain many pages that are not found on the files available at Heritage Quest. A paid subscription is required to access the collection through Ancestry.com.
