Re: Nancy Jane and Johnson Brewington

Here is some more Brewington info I just added to my site:

Joshua Brewington, born about 1760, was head of a New Hanover County household of 5 "other free" in 1800 [NC:311] and 5 "free colored" in 1820 [NC:225]. He was seventy-seven years old on 19 September 1836 when he appeared in New Hanover County court to make a declaration to obtain a pension for his services in the Revolution. He stated that he was born in 1759 or 1760 in the part of Duplin County that became Sampson County, served in a Company of 9 months raised in Duplin County in February or March 1779, lived ten to twelve years in Sampson County after the war and then moved to New Hanover County. There was a record of his enlistment but no record of service. He was a "person of Colour" who died on 22 November 1836 leaving his daughter Yernah Conner, widow of John Conner, as his only heir according to testimony of Richard Curtis [National Archives Pension file S8091,]. He was the father of
i. Yernah, born say 1785, wife of John Conner, head of a Wilmington household of 9 "free colored" in 1820 [NC:205].
