  • "In 1795 he deeded some land to the Low Dutch Reformed Church, Salt River, Mercer Co., Kentucky. On 13 Aug 1795, he signed a petition, with many others, for a minister for a church to be built.

  • Some descendants of Abraham Brewer are outlined and briefly discussed in a privately published book titled Three Hundred Years in America, by Bertha C. Spencer (1942). It was reprinted, with additions, by Sharon R. Brewer Dodge in 1988. Much of the research for the book was the efforts of Sarah Marshall Buchanan of Indianapolis, a great granddaughter of Mary Brewer and Daniel DeMotte.16
  • One (undocumented) source states that Abraham Brewer, son of Daniel Brouwer and Maritje Koning, and of Harrodsburg, Kentucky, was the Abraham Brouwer who married Sarah Truax.

  • Also known as Abram Brower.
  • Abraham Brouwer appeared on the census in 1830 at Broadalbin, Montgomery Co., New York, with a household of 1 male 10-15, 1 male 30-40, 1 female 10-15, 1 female 30-40.3

  • , Broadalbin was part of the Sacandaga Patent of 1741. It was a part of the former town of Caughnawaga in northern Montgomery County. It was first settle about 1770. The town of Broadalbin was created from the towns of Johnstown and Mayfield in 1793, before Fulton County was formed.

Mayfield was also a part of the Mayfield Patent of 1770. It was also a part of the original town of Caughnawaga. Mayfield was established as a town in 1793.
  • Although additional evidence would be welcome, it is almost certain that the Abraham Brouwer, baptized in 1792, son of Jacob Brouwer and Margitta Triet, is the same Abraham who appears in Fulton County, New York in the 1800s as an adult.

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. p.20. Hereinafter cited as Three Hundred Years in America.
