Hello Mr. Jones,
Thank you for contacting the History Hub regarding your ancestor. If Allison P. Brewington participated as a scout with General Custer, then he would have been a possible member of the
7th Cavalry US Army as a teenager. You may review the regular Army enlistment records in person at the National Archives in Washington D.C. Or, you may contact firstname.lastname@example.org to help you research. If they are able to help you via email, the staff will reply if any charges apply.
Secondly, while I was looking around for your relative, I found an image on ancestry.com of AP Brewington on a horse with 3 other men. The image is labeled Scout 1876, source is the National Archives. For information about that image, you may contact our still pictures department in College Park, MD at email@example.com or leave a message on their phone line. Here is a link to the Still Pictures Department for more information.
Lastly, I put your ancestors name into a Google search, there was a nice pdf. Newspaper article by his wife on homesteading if you have not seen it.
I hope this information helps. Best of Luck with your research.
