The original Brunswick County marriage records are located at the county courthouse in Lawrenceville, Virginia. They are also on microfilm at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. The marriage record for John Brewer and Mary Mitchell, showing her father as Lockett Mitchell, is on microfilm number 30659.
