Nathaniel Brewer, Chatham Co., North Carolina, Law Suit, Part III

Links to Part 1 and Part II. Please read the two for background on this post.

Page 10 is another cover page. It appears that the year is 1808.

Nathaniel Brewer Case, p. 10
 Page 11. State of North Carolina Supreme Court, July Term 1808. Littlejohn and Ashton v. Daniel Brewer & Others.

Nathaniel Brewer Case, p. 11


Page 12. The case continues and in this document the plaintiffs claim that Nathaniel Brewer fraudulently conveyed property to his son Thomas Brewer, and that said Thomas Brewer died intestate, leaving Daniel Brewer, Nathaniel Brewer, William Brewer, George Brewer, James Brewer, Patience Vickers the wife of Charles Vickers, Lucy Maban the wife of John Maban, Milly Morgan the wife of William Morgan, Francis Brewer, Susannah Powell the wife of Charles Powell and Nancy Powell the wife of Levi Powell, his brothers and sisters and heirs at law.

Nathaniel Brewer Case, p. 12


 Page 13 is simply a continuation of page 12, with some overlapping. Probably the original pages were legal size pages (8 1/2" x 14"), and had to be scanned in two segments as they would not fit on a letter size (8 1/2" x 11") scanner bed.

Nathaniel Brewer Case, p. 13
Page 14 picks up where 13 leaves off.

Nathaniel Brewer Case, p. 14
Page 14 is the final page in the file. Evidence and/or ideas on who this family is, where they lived, who their descendants are, is welcomed. Please use the Comments field on any of the three posts.
