Bogardus Collection, Anneke Jans and Everardus Bogardus Descendants Association, Wilmington, Ohio. Privately printed. This work contains errors, among them the false account of Anneke Jans descent from William of Orange. This account had been proved a fantasy long before 1988, and its inclusion in the reprint edition is unfortunate. The account of Pieter Adamsz Brouwer is also in error, and there may be other errors with the earlier Brouwer generations. Latter generations are recounted by descendants who lived in the latter part of the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries, and the ancestors who they describe were their parents and grandparents. In addition to the original work of Bertha C. Spencer, the "re-publisher" Sharon Brewer Dodge, includes her own Brewer lineage with the incorrect claim that her ancestor, Willis Brewer of North Carolina, was a son of Jacob Brouwer (b.1709) and a grandson of Sijbrandt Brouwer & Sarah Webber of New York City (this claim has no basis in fact). There is also a short note from William B. Bogardus who questions this connection. There is no factual evidence that would tie Willis Brewer of North Carolina (late 1700s) to any of the Brouwer families of New Netherland. Appendix p.C. No additional information is provided. Further research is required .. Hereinafter cited as Three Hundred Years in America.

  • "Milton Brewer, a prominent farmer of Sedgwick county, Kansas, owns a fine farm of 160 acres of land in section 15 Greely township. He was born September 5, 1847, in Grant county, Indiana, and is a son of John and Pamelia (Davis) Brewer.
    Stephen Brewer, grandfather of Milton, was born in a suburb of New York City, and served in the Revolutionary War as a teamster. His father, Stephen by name, was also a soldier in the Revolutionary War. The wife of the last named died, and he was obliged to take his son to war with him as he had no place to send him. The son entered the struggle at the age of eleven years, and remained in the service until the close of the war. He was then engaged in boating on the Delaware River for several years, after which he learned the trade of cooper. He moved to Fayette county, Indiana, where he plied his trade several years, and then located at Delaware, Indiana. He also worked at his trade at Yorktown, and the last years of his life were spent with his children in Grant Co., Indiana. His wife was Margaret Whiteside by whom he had the following children: Louisa, Lucinda, John, Emily, Stephen, and Aaron. Both parents were Baptists in religious belief. The mother died in 1899 at the age of seventy-eight years.
    John Brewer, Milton's father, was born in Fayette county, Indiana and when a young man moved to Grant county in the same state, where he was one of the pioneer settlers. He there improved a farm, upon which he lived throughout the remainder of his life. He and his wife became parents of the following children: Joseph F., Mary, Milton, John H., and Charles W.
    Milton Brewer was reared and schooled in Grant county, Indiana and remained there until he was thirty-five years of age, when he moved to his present farm in Greely township, Sedgwick county, Kansas, in the fall of 1881. He has since devoted his attention to improving and cultivating his property, and has met with marked success in his work.
    Mr. Brewer was united in marriage, March 23, 1871, with Elizabeth J. Payne, a daughter of William and Celia (Lewis) Payne and a sister of Captain D. L. Payne, widely known by reason of his connection with the settlement of Oklahoma. The following offspring resulted from this union: Emma C., deceased; William D; Mary; Charles E; and Frank, deceased, who were twins; L. May; Robert; and Carrie, deceased. Religiously the family are members of the M. E. Church. In politics Mr. Brewer is a Populist, and has served the public in official capacities."3
