I am the Great Grandson of Simon Peter Brewington… I am just wondering where you got this information about his mother? The only information I’ve found was for Bathsheba Manuel/Emanuel. I would love to understand my family better and thank you very much for posting valuable information on your site.
Hi, John. This post consists of abstracts of North Carolina death certificates, which are available on-line. I’ve learned to take the information they contain with a grain of salt, especially on certs that pre-date about 1960. The data is only as good as the memory or knowledge or understanding of the informant, who surprisingly often was basically guessing. For example, the death certs of the children of my great-great-great-grandmother Margaret Henderson list three or four different maiden names for her.
By the way, I’m not a Brewington myself (that I know of), but am related to many, and I know what a tangled web those lines are pre-1850. Best wishes for happy hunting!
My grandmother was Daisy M. Jackson and her mother, my great-grandmother Polly Ann Brewington’s parents were Nancy Jane Manuel and Johnson Brewington aka as (Old Man Johnson Brewington). My great-great granmother Nancy’s father was stated in the pamphlet on the “Sketch of the CLASSIFIED INDIANS OF SAMPSON CO. NORTH CAROLINA, 1921 BY ENOCH EMANUEL as Jack Manuel that lived on the west side of Little Coharie.

I live in Cumberland County, Fayetteville, NC about twenty-one miles from Sampson County, NC.
Hi, Gale! I’m not a Manuel or Brewington myself (that I know of), but I have lots of relatives who are. Both my Henderson and Aldridge relatives married into those families in the 19th century. Of course I recognize many of your surname matches with families commonly associated with the Lumbee and Coharie today. Interested in your Henderson match, specifically. Would you be willing to share details privately? If so, my email address is lyhend at aol dot com. Thanks!
Thank you so much for such valuable information! I am the great great great granddaughter of Mary Maynor (nee Brewington), who was the child of Nathan and Matilda Chestnut. From what I have learned, Mary Maynor was born sometime around 1839 in Sampson County, NC. She married my great great great grandfather William taylor on May 6, 1857 in Fayetteville. They had at least 4 children together–my great great grandmother Della Taylor, a son named George Taylor, and two other daughters named mary and Jane. My great great grandmother Della married my great great grandfahter Edward W. Holliday (1855-1910) in fayetteville on June 21, 1877. Learning about my family history is a great passion of mine, and I am always excited to learn about the different generations of my ancestors. Thank you so much for sharing!!!
Hi, Marta! Have you seen my Chestnut posts? I mentioned a coincidence re Dr. Robert S. Holliday. I’m glad you found my blog! — Lisa
