    "On Tuesday March 14, 1815, Mr. Bradford married two young couples. Since they were married on the same day, and were all Chatham people, they might have had a double wedding. Johnson Smith, son of Capt. Johnson Smith, was married to Arethusa Fuller. Both lived on Mr. Bradford's land. Their witnesses were Walter Smith and James Fuller.

b. 22 September 1790, d. 20 November 1866
  • Father-Claimed*: Mathew Brower b. bt 1755 - 1760
  • Mother-Claimed*: Emery b. bt 1755 - 1765
  • Jacob Brewer was born on 22 September 1790 possibly in New Jersey.2
  • He married Cassandra McDonald at Greene Co., Pennsylvania, in 1812.3
  • Jacob Brewer died on 20 November 1866 at Coshocton Co., Ohio.3
  • Greene County, Pennsylvania was created from a part of Washington County on 9 Feb 1796.
  • A Jacob Brewer appeared on the census in 1830 at German, Fayette Co., Pennsylvania, with a household of 1 male under 5, 1 male 15-20, 1 male 40-50, 1 female under 5, 2 females 5-10, 2 females 10-15, 1 female 15-20, 1 female 40-50.4
  • He appeared on the census in 1840 at Kilbuck, Holmes Co., Ohio, Jacob Brewer, with a household of 2 males 5-10, 1 male 10-15, 1 male 40-50, 1 female 10-15, 2 females 15-20, 2 females 20-30, 1 female 50-60.5

  • Jacob Brewer has been stated (by descendants) to be a son of Mathew Brewer/Brower of Greene Co., Pennsylvania, and his wife, who is stated to be Mary Magdeline Emery. Evidence for this relationship has not been found, and the relationship has not been proved. An 1898 account of Mathew Brewer/Brower of Greene Co., Pennsylvania, written by a grandson (James A. Brewer), states that the writer believed that Matthew Brower married an Elizabeth Emery, and that he knew of seven children, who the writer names. Jacob Brewer is not mentioned among them. However, it is possible that James A. Brewer confused Jacob for William Brewer in his recollection of his grandfather's family.6

  1. [S751] "History of Crawford and Richland Counties, Wisconsin" Transcribed to the Richland Co. Wisconsin AHGP website, JAMES BREWER, who is now engaged in the livery business in Richland Center, has passed the major portion of his life in this county and was long identified with agricultural pursuits. He is well known in the county and here has a wide circle of friends. Mr. Brewer has the distinction of being native of the city of London, England, and he comes of stanch old English stock in both the paternal and maternal lines. He was born May 29, 1851, and is a son of James and Charlotte (Atkins) Brewer, the former of whom was born in 1819 and the latter in 1820. Both rest in the cemetery at Richland Center, the father having died Feb. 20, 1873, and the mother having passed away June 6, 1894. The parents immigrated to America in 1853, when the subject of this sketch was about two years of age and they first located in the city of Cleveland, Ohio, where the father was employed in a packing establishment. He remained there until 1859, when he came as a pioneer to Richland county, Wisconsin, securing eighty acres of wild land, in Rockbridge township, and residing on the place from 1861 until his death. His widow thereafter remained on the old homestead until her death, many ears later, and the farm is now one of the well improved places of the township. Of the children of this worthy couple the following brief data are entered: James, subject of this sketch, was the first born; Mary, born Nov. 6, 1853, in England, is the wife of William F. Doudna, of Rockbridge township, and they have three children; Margaret, who was born in Cleveland, O., is the wife of Murry Washburn, of this county, and their only child died in infancy; Ned, who likewise was born in Cleveland, married Miss Hattie Dove and they have one child; Grover, who was born in Rockbridge township, this county, married Miss Hattie Joslin and they have seven children. All of the children remain residents of Richland county and the family is one held in high regard in the community. The subject of this sketch secured his rudimentary education in Cleveland, O., and after the removal of the family to Richland county he continued his studies in the district schools of Rockbridge township, where he was reared to maturity. He remained at the parental home until 1872, when he began working for himself, a few years later purchasing a farm in Rockbridge. He remained on this place until 1885, when he sold the property and took up his residence in Richland Center, and thereafter he was superintendent of a farm for N. L. James until 1887, when his first wife died. This caused him to break up housekeeping and he removed to Lavalle, Sauk county, where he remained nearly two years, in the meanwhile contracting a second marriage. He returned to Richland Center and shortly afterward repurchased his old farm, in Rockbridge township, a property which he still owns. He remained on the farm until 1901, when he rented a livery stable in Richland Center, where he has since continued in successful business, having a well equipped establishment and catering to a discriminating patronage. In politics Mr. Brewer is an independent Republican and he served one term as a member of the town board of Rockbridge. On Oct. 7, 1873, Mr. Brewer was united in marriage to Miss Lucy A. Washburn, daughter of Col. James and Maria E. (Jewett) Washburn, well known residents of Rockbridge township. Mrs. Brew was summoned tothe life eternal April 6, 1887, and is survived by two children: Alice, who was born July 20, 1874, is the wife of Edward Kintz, of Richland Center, and they have four children, Lucy, Mearl, Ruby and Elmer; Genevieve, who was born in 1886, lives with her uncle, Murry Washburn. On Feb. 9, 1889, Mr. Brewer wedded Miss Della M. Hawks, daughter of Charles and Eleanor (Weyman) Hawks, and she died Aug. 12, 1901, being survived by two children,--Charlotte, who was born Nov. 17, 1890, and Mildred, who was born Dec. 26, 1892. Mr. Brewer has an interesting heirloom in the form of a teacup, which has been handed down in his mother's family for several hundred years and which is said to have been one of the first manufactured in England, and he also has an ornate wooden-weight-bar of the sort utilized in England, for weighing money many years ago. The same is made of mulberry and his mother informed him that it was cut on the place where Shakespeare lived. The quaint device is handsomely carved and is highly prized by its present owner., History of Crawford and Richland Counties, Wisconsin, online http://www.rootsweb.com/~wirichla/history.htm.
