Jannetje Brouwer

b. before 1726
  • Jannetje Brouwer was born before 1726.
  • She witnessed the baptism of Gerrit Brouwer , son of Abraham Brouwer and Elizabeth Ackerman, on 10 January 1742 at Dutch Reformed Church, Hackensack, Bergen Co., New Jersey, (sponsors Gerrit Brouwer, Jenneke Brouwer).1
  • Possible daughter, but of which of Uldrick Brouwer's wives cannot be determined. She is shown here as a possible daughter of Adriantje Piterse, but this is simply a guess. A Janneke Brouwer stood as sponser for a baptism within this family. No previously known "Janneke Brouwer" can be identified as a possible sponsor.
  • Jannetje Brouwer and Jannetje Brouwer may be one and the same This would be a best guess placement for Jannetje Brouwer, the wife of Cornelius Tunison. It is likely that her placement in a Brouwer family may never be known with certainty. She lived in a community and at a time when nearly everyone was named for someone. The someone being a relation. The only clues to Jannetje's placement are with the names of her children, of which only three are known from being named in her husband's will. Of the three, Cornelius is clearly named for his father's father. The other two are named Garret and Arietta. Neither of these names are seen in the family or ancestry of Cornelius Tunison, and therefore may have come from Jannetje's family. Jannetje Brouwer, the pressumed daughter of Uldrick Brouwer and his second wife Adriantje Pieterse, stood as sponsor at the baptism of Gerrit Brouwer, son of Abraham Brouwer and Elizabeth Ackerman. Uldrick had a son named Gerrit, and the name Arietta may well be a variation on Adriantje.

Jannetje Brouwer

b. between 1725 and 1730
  • Also known as Tanniers Brower.1
  • Also known as Yannica Brouwer.2
  • Also known as Jane Brouwer.4
  • In 1749 Jannetje Brouwer resided at Middlesex Co., New Jersey; at the time of her marriage.1
  • "Wife, Jane," is named in her husband's will dated 4 Feb 1790.4
  • Jannetje Brouwer and Jannetje Brouwer may be one and the same This would be a best guess placement for Jannetje Brouwer, the wife of Cornelius Tunison.

  • Other than the above mentioned placement for Jannetje, it is conceivable that she may be Jannetje Brouwer, baptized 1722 at Hackensack, the daughter of Jurge Brouwer and Elizabeth Holmes. However, the lack of the names Jurge (Jeremiah) or Elizabeth in the Tunison family is a strike against this palcement.
    It is unlikely that she is Jannetje, baptized 1718, daughter of Sybrant Brouwer and Sara Webber. Sybrant lived his entire life in Kings County and New York City, and is not found in Middlesex County, New Jersey which is where Jannetje Brouwer was living at the time of her marriage. And as above, the names Sybrant and Sara are not found among Jannetje's children.

Unfortunately, my grandmother seperated these pages from the Bible shortly before she died, throwing the remainder of the book away.

The obituary does not name any children.4,9
  • From: The Huenot Millers by Margaret Miller White published by Itawamba County Times Fulton, Mississippi. The following article printed in "Magazine and Death Notices," South Carolina Historical and Genealogical Magazine says a great deal about the man and his times: Died on Friday last, Mr. Jeremiah Brower, a native of New York, in the fiftfourth (sic) year of his age, after a lingering illness and confinement to his house for nearly twenty years past, with the gout, most of which time he was confined to hisbed, as useless to himself; all of which he bore with as much manly and Christian fortitude as human nature would allow. This gentleman came to this state in 1772, fromhis native state, in the capacity of a merchant, and transacted business with honor and credit, under the firm of Somerson and Brower, until the Revolutionary War and depredations of the British deprived him of his property, particularly as a shipping merchant to the West Indies. In 1778, he marched as a member of the Volunteer company of the militia of this city to Savannah, in Georgia, when infested by the British. After his return, he exerted himself as a man in the defense of this city, to the year 1780 and was, with many other of our fellow citizens sent a prisoner to the Northward, and like them endured a tedious and tiresome journey by land, on foot, back again to his family; the fatigues of which and suffering all the hardships of war, from repeated colds, brought on a fit of the gout, from which he could never get relieved, until friendly death removed him, we hope to ease and happiness in the mansions of peace. He has left behind him a widow whose unremitted attention and care to him through life could be equalled by few of her sex. He was an honest man, and highly esteemed. Thursday, July 19, 1804.10

    I believe that this man was the Jeremiah Brower, Jr who died on the Friday prior to July 19, 1804, when his obituary appeared in the City Gazette and Daily Advertiser, in Charleston, SC. It stated he was a native of New York, and was 54 years old at death, making his birth about 1750. It said he had been a SHIPPING MERCHANT , his line was Charleston , SC to the West Indies. (his father's line was Manhattan to Charleston, so the story probably goes: that the son was sent to Charleston in employ of his father, and somehow he became established there, in the same buisness his father did.)
    The obit states he arrived in Charleston in 1772, from New York, and had a going business, but the Revolutionary War popped-up, and he served as a Voluteer in the Militia in 1778. It details his battles, and the fact he was severly injured, actaully disabled due to his various injuries, and he lived out the remained of his life crippled.

    "DIED on Friday last, Mr. Jeremiah Brower a native of New York, in the 54th year of his age, after a lingering illness and confinement to his house for nearly 20 years past, with the gout, most of which time he was confined to his bed, as helpless as an infant, his limbs being contracted and distorted, so as to render him useless to himself; all of which he bore with much manly and christian fortitude, as human naure would allow. This gentleman came to this State in 1772, from his native state, in the capacity of a merchant and transacted business with honor and credit, under the name of Somerson & Brower, until the Revolutionary War and depredations of the British deprived him of his property, particularly as a shipping merchant to the West Indes. In 1778, he marched as a member of the Volunteer company of the militia of this city to Savannah, in Georgia, when infested by the British. After his return, he exerted himself as a man in the defence of this city, in the year 1780 and was with many other fellow citizens sent a prisoner to the Northward and like them indured a tedious and tiresome journey by land on foot, back again to his family, the fatigues of which and suffering all ???? of war, from repeated ???? brought on a fit of the gout from which he could never be relieved until friendly death removed him, we hope, to ease and happiness in the mansions of peace. He has left behind him a widow whose unrequited attention and care to him through life would be equaled by few of her sex. He was an honest man and much esteemed by the few friends who had visited him in his confinement and by whome his memory will ever be esteemed.". Hereinafter cited as "L. Martin e-mail 12-17-2006."

Jeremiah is of the belief that "Great Grandfather Jacob" had eight children. (The inquiry is being made in an effort to demonstrate a right of nheritence to the "Jans and Bogardus" property).12

Jeremiah Brouwer1

b. 26 February 1738, d. 13 March 1822

  • Jeremiah Brouwer was probably born on 26 February 1738 at New Jersey (date recorded in a ledger belonging to his son).
  • He is possibly the Jeremiah Brouwer who married Margaret Hedickie before 1766 (two children baptized at Schaghticioke in 1766 and 1774).2
  • Jeremiah Brouwer married Hannah Thomas, daughter of (Peter?) Thomas, before 1776.
  • Jeremiah Brouwer possibly died on 13 March 1822 at Petersburg, Rensselaer Co., New York, according to a ledger that is said to have belonged to Jeremiah and then his son, Jeremiah, Jr. (it was last in the possession of descendant, Nellie Smith of Wisconsin who d. in June 2006, ae. 100).3
  • Also known as Jeremiah Brower.
  • Also known as Jeremiah Brewer.4,5,6
  • Jeremiah is possibly a son of Jurge Brouwer and Elizabeth Holmes, but the relationship has not been proved. DNA tests involving descendants do confirm that he is a descendant of Adam Brouwer of Gowanus, L. I. Jeremiah was likely born in either Bergen or Hunterdon Co., New Jersey and lived for some time at Cortlandt Manor, Westchester Co., New York. During his service with the Westchester Militia in the French & Indian War, he spent time in the vicinity of present day Saratoga County and afterwards settled there at "Newtown on the Half Moon Patent." He was a Loyalist during the Revolution and at the close of the war became one of the first settlers at Missiquoi Bay in northern Vermont on the Canadian border. About 1806 he is believed to have settled at Petersburg, New York with his youngest sons, Jeremiah and Serring. His son, Peter, remained at Highgate, Vermont, and many of his descendants went to Wisconsin.
  • A Jeremiah Brewer, Jr. joined the Provincial Troops on 22 Apr 1759, Westchester County, Capt Jonathan Haights Co., aged 22, b. New Jersey, a miller, detached Capt. Verplank's Co., 6' 0", dark eyes and black hair. Hoffman in "Brouwer Beginnings" (TAG 24:164) credits this occurance to Jurge Brouwer (b.1733) with the qualification that although the ages do not match, the colonial militia records are often incorrect regarding the age of the enlisted. However, this record of service could certainly pertain to a second son named Jurge, or Jeremiah, born to the same couple after an early death of the first son Jurge, and as the age does match that of Jeremiah's (b.1738) this record more likely pertains to this Jeremiah. The record could belong to an entirely different Jeremiah Brouwer (say from another family), although there are few other candidates, and none are known to have been born in New Jersey.
    Capt. Jonathan Haight's Co. was recruited out of Cortlandt Manor in Westchester County, New York. Jeremiah was one of three men detached from the company to serve under another command. It is possible that he was part of the detachement sent to Albany/Crown Point, New York. Although this is not certain, men from all the counties were sent there in the summer of 1759 to augment troops under Gen. Amherst who was mounting an offensive against the French (this was at the height of the French & Indian War). This company's movements took them to Half Moon, Stillwater and Saratoga, New York. Gen. Amherst's army of twelve thousand men arrived at Ticonderoga on 22 Jul 1759.7,8,9,10
  • His encounter with the region around Half Moon during his (presummed) military service, may have promted Jeremiah to settle there. At least one other member of the militia raised at Cortlandt Manor (Joseph Concklin) did settle at Half Moon after his service.
  • In 1777 Jeremiah Brouwer resided at Newtown "on the Half Moon Patent", (present day Saratoga Co.), New York.11
  • "Jere. Brower, Han. Brower, Davis Brower, and Annetgen Brower," are recorded on a list of members of the Gilead Lutheran Church (now in Centre Brunswick, NY) "prior to 1800" (no specific date given).12
  • Among the sparse records of the inhabitants of the area around Half Moon and Hoosick are assessment lists from 1766 and 1779. They show that Abraham Buys was assessed in Half Moon in 1766, and at £100 on his real property in the Town of Half Moon in March 1779. Widow Buys was assessed at £50 in Half Moon in Mar 1779, and Mary Buys was between Jeremiah Brewer and John Hooper in Hoosick in Oct 1779 (she was not noted as a widow here).13
  • On 2 March 1779 A Jeremy Brewer and a Nicholas Brewer are found on the 2 March 1779 Albany Co. tax list living at Half Moon, while a Jeremiah Brewer and Nicholas Brewer are recorded on the 23 Oct. 1779 Albany Co. tax list at Half Moon. Among their neighbors in March 1779 are Widow Buys, John Hooper, Charles Elsworth and John Sterling. Abraham D'graf lived next to John Sterling and Nicholas Brewer was on the other side. In Oct. 1779 their neighbors are John Concklin, John Hooper, Mary Buyce (presummed to be the "widow" in March), Charles Aylesworth, John Sterlin, Thomas Concklin, and Thomas Concklin, Jr.
  • During the Revolution, Jeremiah sided with the British Government and apparently suffered because of his loyalty. "The Memorial of Jeremiah Brewer of Hoosick, New York," no.1650, new claim filed 1 May 1786 was signed by Jeremiah Brewer, Hoosick, 13 Mar 1786, witnessed by Isaac Tishman, Justice, Bennington, Vermont. In his claim Jeremiah states that he lived in "Newtown upon the Half Moon Patten" and that he joined the British Army under the command of General Burgoyne, then at Fort Miller, on the 1st of August 1777, and went immediately into service, and was with the army for two months with his family. On 3 October 1777, for want of provisions for his family, he says he left the army. On the second day after he left he was made a prisoner by the Americans, "but staid with them but a few hours and found means to make his escape from them." Jeremiah states that his effects were taken away and destroyed, but that he was then permitted to return home to his farm where he remained for one year, but was driven off when he would not take the oath. He states that his farm was taken from him and sold at one half the price, and includes among lost property, 3 horses, 9 sheep, 1 cow, 6 swine, 100 bushels of wheat, 50 bushels of oats, 20 bushels of rye, tobacco, household furniture, a "sley and harrow", and one Negro man. Jeremiah professes his loyalty to his Majesty during the "unhappy dessentions" and states that he was active and faithfully attached to his Majesty's Government. Jeremiah lists as witnesses on his behalf, Nicholas Brewer and Charles Aylesworth, both of Newtown, New York, and Peter Thomas and Stephen Buys, both of Cataraqui in the Province of Canada.14,15,16,17,18
  • Jeremiah Brower and Jacob Brimmer, both of Hoosick, New York, filed their respective Loyalist claims on the same day in Bennington, Vermont.
  • A search of Confiscations in Albany, Charlotte and Tryon Counties, New York did not find the name of Jeremiah Brower mentioned. Among those confiscations in the towns of Half Moon and Hoosick were a number involving the names Lampman, Hogle, and Buys, the first being families that had married daughters of Jacob and Maria (Bovie) Brouwer of Hoosick, New York.19
  • Jeremiah Brewster (sic), is stated to be, along with Joseph Reycard, John Hilliker, and Thomas Butterfield, as the first settlers of Highgate, Vermont, arriving there about 1786/87. They have been described as Dutch refugees probably assuming that they were settling in Canada (as a line had yet to be established). It should be noted, that Aldrich, in his History of Franklin and Grand Isle Counties, initially calls him "Jeremiah Brewster," although subsequent accounts call him "Jeremiah Brewer." Jeremiah settled, "on the west side of Rock River, near the lake shore." This area was then Alburgh, and he appears there on the 1790 census, as Jeremiah Brewer. A J. Brewer appears in the town records of Highgate in 1794.20,21,22,23
  • He appeared on the census in 1790 at Alburgh, Chittenden Co., Vermont, with a household of 3 males 16 years and older; 2 males under 16; 3 females. Enumerated next to Stephen Sweat (1 male over 16, 2 females). In this record, the male over 16 could be, Jeremiah himself, and possible sons Nicholas and Isaac, with the two males under 16 as Peter and Jacob.24,25,26
  • On 10 July 1795 Jeremiah Brower of Missiquoi Bay petitioned for 1200 acres of land in the Township of "Clapham or Farnham" (in Lower Canada).27
  • On 19 Oct 1795, Jeremiah Brewer, Isaac Brewer, Peter Steinhour, and George Steinhour, recorded in sequence, took the Oath of Allegiance to Canada at Missisquoi Bay. His then place of residence was recorded as Vermont, and the place he intended to settle was given as Barnston. Peter Steinhour was Jeremiah Brewer's son-in-law. A relationship between Jeremiah and Isaac has not yet been determined.28
  • On 22 Mar 1796, Jeremiah Brower sold land in Alburgh to Oliver Barker of St. Armands, Province of Lower Canada. The property is described as Lot No.1, containing 110 acres, bounded on the north by the province line, westerly by the Lake or Missisquoi Bay, southerly by the property of younger Wilson and easterly by Lodwick Stiles property. The deed was recorded in the Highgate, Vermont town records on 19 Dec 1801.29
  • In 1800 Jeremiah Brower appears on the General List at Highgate, Vermont, assessed at 43 50. Peter Brower is listed immediately after Jeremiah.30
  • He appeared on the census in 1800 at Highgate, Franklin Co., Vermont, spelled "Jeremiah Bruer," with a family of 1 male under 10 (John), 2 males 16-25 (Nicholas and Peter, who is married but is not enumerated seperately as a head of household), 1 male over 45 (Jeremiah), 1 female under 10 (Martha), 2 females 10-15 (Susannah and Sarah), 1 female 16-25 (most probably Peter's wife Hannah Sanborn), 1 female over 45 (Jeremiah's wife, Hannah Thomas). Possible son, Isaac is enumerated in Isle of Mott, however, possible son Nicholas is not found in the 1800 census records in either Franklin Co., Vermont or Clinton Co., New York. Peter is presummed to have been in Highgate (as he settled there permenantly), while Nicholas may have been in the Eastern Twps. of Canada.31
  • On 5 Jul 1800, both Jeremiah Brower and Jacob Brower, were admitted as associates at Barnston Twp. (Missisquoi, Quebec). Also admitted were George and Peter Steinhower (sic).32
  • In 1801 the names, in succession, of William Proper, Peter Brower, James Proper, and Jeremiah Brower appear on the Grand List of Highgate, Vermont.30
  • In 1803 Jeremiah was granted land in Potton, Lower Canada (now in Brome Co., Quebec). Potton is directly across the border from North Troy, Orleans Co., Vermont.33
  • He was living on 4 September 1806; when he sold land in Potton, Brome Co., Quebec to Philip Ruiter of St. Armand, Quebec. It was the same 200 acre parcel that Jeremiah had been granted in 1803. This is the last documented record of Jeremiah found to this date.33
  • Jeremiah Brewer was among the first settlers in the area of Highgate and Alburgh, Vermont, and it logically follows that the three individuals named Peter, Nicholas and Jacob Brewer who appear in the town records there in the first decade of the 19th century would be Jeremiah's sons, and that this Jeremiah Brewer is the same who, with wife Hannah Thomas, had two sons, Peter and Jacob baptized at the Gilead Evangelical Lutheran Church in Center Brunswick, New York in 1779 and 1782. The Gilead Church and its members were known as a "hotbed" of Loyalist activity at the onset of the American Revolution. The area of Alburg and Highgate, Vermont, as well as that area directly over the border in Canada, which at the time was known as the "Eastern Townships," was first settled by families, mainly Dutch and German, who emigrated from the Hudson Valley region near Albany, New York, just after the close of the Revolutionary War. Among those families that emigrated to the northern Vermont area near Lake Champlain, and who are also associated with the Brewer/Brower name in the area of Hoosick, New York, where Lampman (Landtman), Vosburg, and Hogle.
  • Regarding Jeremiah's children, only Polly, Peter, Jacob, and Sarah can be placed in this family with reliable accuracy, as baptismal records exist for these four. The other children listed are surmised based upon their appearences in Highgate as adults and at a time that, with reasonable certainty, would have them "fit" into Jeremiah's family, and as Jeremiah is the only "Brower" of his generation found in the Highgate area, it is most likely that they are all his children. However, the possibility exists that they may belong to another Brewer household.
  • The parentage of Jeremiah Brewer has not been determined with certainty. Neither a birth, marriage or a death record have ever been located for him. Determing who his parents were is based upon the best circumstantial evidence that can be found. Using this approach also requires communicating the reasons why Jeremiah would not belong to other "suspected" families. For example, the fact that he was over the age of 21 in Aug 1777 is important in that it eliminates the possibility that Jeremiah is the son of Nicholas4 Brouwer (1714-1778; Adolphus3, Nicholas2, Adam1) of Poughkeepsie, Fishkill and Albany, New York. When this Nicholas wrote his will on 17 Sep 1777, he states that his son Jeremiah is at the time under the age of 21 (this Jeremiah inherited property "lying above Schenectady and on the north side of the Mohawk River" (this location would be west of the Hudson River and west of Albany, while Hoosick, New York is east of the Hudson and Albany and very near the Vermont border). Another possibility is that Jeremiah may be a descendant of Jacob3 Brouwer (Pieter2, Adam1) and Maria Bovie who had a family in the area of Hoosick, New York where they were married and their known children were baptized (1719-1743). Of Jacob and Maria Brouwer's known children, Antje married Petrus Vosburg, and Maria married Michael Lampman. Each of these two families first lived and had children baptized in Hoosick, then emigrated to the area of Alburgh and Highgate, Vermont and eventually settled in the Eastern Townships of Canada directly over the border from Highgate, just as Jeremiah did. Both Maria and Antje were described as "of Hoosick" in the church records of their marriages in 1751 and 1752 respectively. If born in the time frame of 1745-1755, Jeremiah, would probably be too young to be a child of Jacob and Maria whose last child was born in 1743, when Maria was 44 years old. He could, however, be a son of Jacob and Maria's son Peter (b.1722) of whom, however, nothing else has been found. If Jeremiah was born on 26 Feb 1738, as claimed in the ledger believed to have belonged to Jeremiah, then he could possibly be a son of Jacob and Maria, however, while baptismal records have been found for all of their other children, none has been found for Jeremiah, and the name of Jeremiah Brower does not appear at all as a sponsor in the baptismal records of the grandchildren of Jacob and Maria (Bovie) Brouwer. The name Jeremiah itself is an important clue. The name is only known to be found in the lines of descent from Adam Brouwer through his sons Nicholas and Abraham, whose father-in-law was Jurrian (Jeremiah) Caljer. This would eliminate any lines through Adam's son Pieter, including that of Jacob and Maria (Bovie) Brouwer.
  • DNA testing of confirmed descendants of Jeremiah Brower has helped to narrow down the possibilities for identifying Jeremiah's ancestry. Results from DNA testing (Dec. 2006) of descendants of Adam Brouwer (Brewer DNA Project, www.familytreedna.com) has indicated that the most likely son of Adam Brouwer, through whom Jeremiah is descended, is Nicholas Brouwer. Test results have shown that two known descendants of Jeremiah are descendants of Adam Brouwer Berkhoven (Kit nos. 65385 and 77803). In addition, the test results for Kit nos. 75657 and 81173 (known descendants of Adam through his son Nicholas) demonstrate, by their close matching with the former mentioned two kits, that Jeremiah must also be a descendant of Adam Brouwer through his son Nicholas.34
  • Isaac Brewer is a possible son of Jeremiah Brouwer. However, at this point in time this is only a speculation. If so, he may be from an earlier marriage. He may also be a nephew, and (less likely) completely unrelated. From the 1800 census, Isaac is clearly of an age in which he could be a son. He is associated with Jeremiah in that the two appear consecutively on the list of those who took the oath of allegiance at Missisquoi in 1795. Isaac may be related to Jeremiah in some other way, but it should also be noted that in the descent from the family progenitor, Adam Brouwer, the name Isaac is most common in the families descended through Adam's son Nicholas, which is the same line in which Jeremiah is descended. The identity of his mother is not known, but based upon his age range as per the 1800 census, it would appear that his mother is not likely to be Hannah Thomas.

  2. [S2072] It is possible that the Jeremiah Brower, married to Hannah Thomas, and the Jeremiah Brower, married to Margaret Hegger (Hidickie) were one and the same, meaning that Jeremiah Brower was married twice. Both couples had children baptized at the Schaghticoke Dutch Reformed Church, the former had daughter Polly in 1776, and the later, sons Willem (1766) and Abraham (1774). For this to be possible in would mean that Jeremiah fathered children, by his two successive wives, over a period of 36 years (1766 to 1802), possible, but not common. The records of the Schaghticoke Dutch Reformed Church were first published, beginning in 1929, in the NYG&BR (59:318) as annotated transcriptions of the original records by the late William Burt Cook, Jr. In his annotations, Mr. Cook notes the earlier baptisms of the sons of Jeremiah Brower and Margaret Hegger on the entry of the later baptism of Polly, daughter of Jeremiah Brower and Hannah Thomas (NYG&BR 61:182). Whether he believed these two Jeremiahs were one and the same, or whether he was simply calling attention to the common name, Jeremiah Brower, in both records can not be determined.

    Jeremiah Brewer Jun'r --enlisted April 22 [1759] -- age 22 -- born: Jersey --Trade: Miller -- Volunteer -- Detached of Militia Company Captain John Verplancks -- enlisted by Captain Haight -- stature: 6 feet 0 inches --Dark eyes and Black hair
    This is a muster roll of the men raised and passed muster in the county of Westchester for Capt Johnathan Haight his company April 30th 1759. Capt. Johnathan Haight, Liv't Robert Travis, Liv't Nathaniel Wyatt.
    This Jeremiah was one of three men detached form the company to serve under another command. I believe they were part of a detachment sent to Albany/Crown Point. But of that I am uncertain. Men were sent from all the counties to augment the troops under General Amherst who mounted an offensive on Crown Point and Fort Ticonderoga in summer of 1759. In the report of the State Historian of the State of New York there is a memorandum that outlines the New York regiment’s 1759 planned route northward, departing from Albany: “Albany to the half moon 12M [miles]; Water carriage. From Half Moon to Stillwater 12M in Land carriage unless Waters high. (any season a Fall obliges them to ride one mile southward of Stillwater. From Stillwater to Saraghtoga 14 Miles Water.

From Fort Miller to Fort Edward 12 Miles Water Carriage.” They would have then taken an overland portage eastward from the Hudson to the Lake, thence northeast to Crown Point. It is recorded that the British provincials at Fort Ticonderoga included Colonel Peter Schuyler’s Jersey Blues The army under General Amherst arrived at Ticonderoga on the 22d of July with twelve thousand men, Provincials and regulars.".

  9. [S1436] Richard Brewer, "Jeremiah Brewer in Muster Roll," e-mail message from Brewer, Richard (unknown address) to Chris Chester and et al, 2 Jan 2007, "I think the probability of locating Jeremiah Brewer in the New Jersey records of the war are slim. There is an address prepared for the New Jersey Society of Colonial wars at the University Club, New York called “New Jersey In The Colonial Wars”, by The Hon. Richard Wayne Parker Published by The New Jersey Society of Colonial Wars, in 1919. to be found online at: www.webroots.org/library/usamilit/njitcw00.html. It is worth your taking a look at. He does not list specific individuals but rather covers the the various NJ militia forces activities, recruitment, furbishing, funding etc., during the various wars. In chapter VI "The Conquest of Canada, 1756 to 1763" he covers the activities of the NJ military during the time of Jeremiah's enlistment. Aside from the interesting history (it is a short but fascinating read) he makes clear in the forward to the presentation that we have little hope of tracking the individual personnel--sadly-- he writes, "Nearly all our New Jersey court-houses were burned during the Revolution. Our Adjutant-General's office once contained fairly complete rosters and reports. It is said that one of our Adjutant-Generals took part of these papers to his home in order to write a history
    of the New Jersey troops. Unfortunately, he died while engaged in the work, and the papers have disappeared. The payrolls of the militia, when in service, should have been
    preserved in the State treasury. If this had been done we should now possess a complete roster, not only of officers but of privates. But, unluckily, there was a fire in the State House in 1885. As a result, no one can find the old treasury vouchers, and,
    indeed, they seem to have been regarded as of no account. Yet such papers contained a great deal of personal information and other data, not otherwise obtainable. There was a surprising amount of official laxity in this respect. Many of the old-time treasurers
    kept their papers at home, just as a private executor or trustee might do." That said, the references he used may be of some value if they can be located. He refers to at least 9 Volumes of "New Jersey Archives" that he consulted and at least 13 volumes of "New York Colonial Documents" He adds that "The State of New York has published four volumes of documentary history and thirteen volumes of Colonial documents, but in the selection of matter many details relating to our State have been omitted. Some of these omitted items may be found in the archives of the New York State department, and also in that of Pennsylvania."
    The author suggests that, “The Ottawa records should give full details.” He writes:" In 1760 we sent one thousand men; in 1761, six hundred men. In 1762 Montreal was taken and the whole of Canada came under the British flag. It is believed that New Jersey troops under Colonel Schuyler went with the final expedition. The Ottawa records should give full details." I don't know what the Ottawa records are that he is referring to. He adds, "Nothing is found in the records of the State treasurers concerning the purchase of supplies; also the pay rolls, which would contain the name of every man in every company, are missing. This is really a great disappointment. I find a few lists and muster rolls in family papers, but all too few. Dr. C. E. Godfrey tells me that nearly all our honorably discharged Revolutionary soldiers received land grants, the record of which would show their names. This clue should be followed up." He basically placed a task before the The New Jersey Society of Colonial Wars, to put in the effort to recover records that may have still been available in 1919. "Unquestionably this Society has a special historical work to do in rescuing from oblivion the valiant deeds of our forefathers. The work must be done by many hands, but all should take some share. The old records must be carefully collated, and abstracts made of what they say regarding the military operations in which New Jerseywas engaged. Also copies should be prepared of the early military laws and war measures passed by our State, supplying from the records in England whatever details may be missing. Finally, search should be made at Whitehall for the military record of New Jersey officers and men engaged in service under the Crown. All this is labor certainly, but it should be a labor of love."
    So, I wonder if the Society still exists and whether or not they have additional records that have turned up since 1919. But, it seems a long route to go to try and locate the movement of one Jeremiah Brewer from New Jersey to Half Moon and thence to VT and Canada. But one never knows what can turn up serendipitously. Could the papers of the Adjutant General, remarked upon at the beginning that disappeared after his death at home, have eventually turned up?". Hereinafter cited as "R. Brewer e-mail 1-2-2007."

  16. [S490] Tom Barker,"Loyalism in Rensselaer County."Symposium on the Battle of Bennington.. Online www.hoosickhistory.com., "During the War for Independence, Gilead Evangelical Lutheran Church in Brunswick Center, New York, was a hotbed of Loyalist or Tory sentiment. There were differnet reasons for this. Two stand out. Many, probably a majority of the parishoners, were tenant farmers of the upper portion of the Van Rensselaer's East Manor and subject to rental payments and various other onerous, material exactions. The congregation was then predominantly Palatine, that is eighteenth century German-American, with a certain representation of Lowland Dutchmen and recent New England Yankee immigrants. The second factor was that the European-born pastor, Johann Wilhelm Samuel Schwerdtferger (1743-1803), who also ministered to the large German population in Albany (First Lutheran Church), was a strong advocate of fidelity to the Crown, as represented by the German-descended monarch, the Hannoverian George III. This was regular trouble with the Patriot or Whig authorities in Albany. Moreover, one of his own sons joined the Tory militia under Franz Joseph Pfister (c.1740-1777), a parishoner, at the Battle of Bennington, where Pfister's Hoosick political boss was killed. It should be stressed that the Albany rebel junta was the instrument of the Mid-Hudson's landed ruling class, among which the Van Rennselaers, Schuylers and Livingstons were especially prominent.
    After the war (1787) Schwerdtfeger sought to emigrate with the apparent bulk of Gilead's congregation to Quebec, but a specific request for lan was ignored by the royal governor, Lord Dorchester (Sir Guy Carleton). However, Schwerdtferger did leave on an individual basis in 1791 and served as pastor of the ex-New York Palatines, i.e. Loyalist refugees, whom the British government had granted undeveloped tracts of territory around Williamsburgh, Upper Canada (later Ontario), just downriver from Kingston. Many of these settlers had belonged previously to Gilead.". Hereinafter cited as Loyalism in Rensselaer Co.

Page 487-517.. Online www.rootsweb.com/*vermont/GrandIsleAlburg.html., "The earliest civilized settlement, of which we have any authentic account, was made by the French about the year 1731, at Wind-Mill Point, in the west part of the town. This was under a charter from the French crown, issued to "Senior Francois Foucault, councillor to the Supreme Council of Quebec, and principal scrivener to the Marine," which is confirmed by another charter bearing date April 3, 1733, ratified by his Majesty the King of France, April 6, 1734. May, 1743, this charter was renewed and augmented, in which charter of confirmation it is recited, that Foucault had complied with the conditions of the original grant, by establishing three new settlers, in addition to eight who had settled the previous year -- that he had built in that year, (1731) a wind-mill of stone masonry which cost near 4,000 livres, and had taken steps to build a church 20 by 40 feet, which was to be ready to receive a missionary the next spring, to whom a lot of land was conveyed, free of charge, of 2 acres in front by 40 acres in depth, to serve for the building of a church, a parochial house and burying-ground, and for the maintenance of the missionary, which donation was accepted by the Bishop of Quebec. This charter or concession granted to the said Foucault, was for "two leagues in length upon the River Chambly;" and in its renewal the lands of the original grant were included, and an "augmentation of one league in front, by the same in depth, to be taken at the end of the said two leagues, going up the said River Chambly." In view of the Improvements set forth in the petition of the said Foucault, to which reference is trade in the said grant, and also his efforts to induce settlers to enter upon these lands, the farther augmentation above named was made, in the year 1743, of a neck of land or peninsular of about 2 leagues in front, joining the concession previously made, and going up the said River Chambly to the point called "Point du Detour" the southern extremity of Alburgh, known as "Point of the tongue," which said extent of land had bees granted to Mr. De L'Isle, who relinquished the same at the same time, on account of the bad quality of the land; part of which, the petitioner states, is fit for cultivation, and which the petitioner could give to some laborious young man -- all the remainder being without any depth, and full of large stones and rocks This grant or concession is signed jointly by "Charles Marquis De Beaubarnois" and "Gilles Hocquart," who declare therein, that they have "full power and virtue thus to do by his Majesty," &c.
    This settlement was of short duration, and another was commenced in 1741, only 10 years after, and soon abandoned. This is corroborated by the fact that the early settlers of the town found the mill in ruins, except the masonry, only about 50 years after its erection, and that an excavation near it, apparently a cellar, bad large trees growing in it. I might here say, that stones were found in the cellar of the mill, which were pronounced by good judges to be, genuine French burr, and were afterward sold by Joseph MOTT to Judge MOORS, of Champlain, and run in his mill. The cellar and upper wall, say about 4 feet above the ground, are still in a good state of preservation, The fact that these settlements were of so short duration will not seem so remarkable, when we bear in mind that the French and English, each aided by their Indian allies, were establishing and demolishing their respective settlements and outposts, especially along the Lakes, about this period. Son. Foucault transferred his grant to Gen. Frederick Haldimand, who was Gov. of Canada from 1778, to 1784, and Haldimand subsequently conveyed the same to Henry CALDWELL, Esq., of Belmont near Quebec. Caldwell caused the outlines of the town to be surveyed and lotted on the Lake-shore. The title of Henry Caldwell descended to John Caldwell, his son. It was afterward purchased from John Caldwell by the late Heman ALLEN, of Highgate. About the year 1782, some emigrants from St. Johns made a settlement within the present limits of the town, it was then known as "Caldwell's Upper Manor." One of these, John GIBSON, who settled on what Is since known as the HUXLEY farm, had a daughter born two days after the arrival of the family on the place, which birth occurred Dec. 15, 1784. This daughter, baptized "Agnes,' by Dr. SPARK of Quebec, and since, Mrs. STIMPSON of Bangor, N. Y., was the first person born in town. The first male child born in town was William SOWLES, in 1788, who is now living. These settlers supposed themselves in Canada, and were principally British refugees. Others settled in soon after, from different localities. These settlements were begun on the Lake-shore, around the town. Many of the settlers acknowledged CALDWELL's titles and took leases under him; but afterward denied his title, and recovered in the State courts, on the ground that he had failed to have his title recorded within the limits of the Province in which the lands were located. According to the provisions of the definitive treaty of 1783, which established the boundary in this vicinity on lat. 45°, the line having been settled by Sir H. MOORE, governor of the Province of N. Y., and Brig. Gen. CARLTON, accompanied by other gentlemen from Quebec, from observations previously made by the French, on Wind-Mill Point, about 2 1/2 miles north on lat. 45°, in the year 1766, these lands were found to be within the Province of New York, within the limits of which Caldwell had not recorded his title. Thus terminated the first series of land-suits, which were specially onerous and vexatious to these poor, but independent and high-spirited settlers. It ought, however, to have been stated, that during the pendency of this claim, the settlers petitioned the General Assembly of Vermont, to lay a tax of one cent per acre upon their land, for the purpose of building and repairing roads and bridges; -- which act was passed, and under its provisions the inhabitants suffered all their lands, claimed and unclaimed, to be sold at public vendue by the collector, each bidding upon his own lands only, and that without any interfering bids from any and all others; thus each bidding in his own lands at the amount of tax and costs, which tax was worked out by the inhabitants. But they were foiled in their attempt thus to obtain a title to their lands. Previous to the time of redemption running out, CALDWELL sent his son John up from Quebec, with an amount of specie, and paid the entire claim. Still they had reaped the benefit of obliging their quondam landlord to build their roads and bridges.". Hereinafter cited as History of the Town of Alburg.

Her notes read: "Jeremiah settled in Highgate in 1786, coming from Hoosick, NY. He lived on the west side of Rock River, near the shore of Lake Champlain. Prominent in town affairs. The 1790 federal census showed him in Alburgh (later to become Highgate) with 3 males 16 and over; 2 males under 10 (sic); and 3 females. The 1800 census for Highgate gave 1 male under 10; 2 males 16-26; 1 male 45 or over; 1 female under 10; 2 females 10-16; 1 female 16-26, and 1 female 45 and over. Jeremiah wasn't listed on the 1810 census. He appeared on the Highgate tax lists until 1801, but no record of his death can be located. He was granted 200 acres in Potton, Brome County, Quebec, and took the Oath of Allegiance to the Crown then, but no record of his ever living in Potton can be found, nor is there any gravesite. His son Jeremiah was born in 1802 and son Serring born 1802/03, so he may have died somehere around this time, but no record of his death is shown in Vermont vital records. But, there is a record of a land sale made by Jeremiah to Philip Ruiter, of St. Armand, Quebec dated 4 Sep 1806, which was the same land granted Jeremiah in Potton in 1803. So apparently he was still alive as of 1806, but he appeared on no tax lists after 1801 - at least in Highgate. No record can be found of his living in St. Armand. Believe he used the town officials in St. Armand as they were closest to Highgate."

Jeremiah Brouwer

b. 1770, d. before 25 June 1813
  • Jeremiah Brouwer was born in 1770.2
  • He married Catherine Cole at Paterson, New Jersey, in October 1794.3
  • Jeremiah Brouwer died before 25 June 1813 at probably Essex Co., New Jersey.
  • Surname is also spelled Brower.4
  • Will proved on 25 June 1813 (undated will). Calls himself Jeremiah Brower of Paterson, Essex Co., New Jersey, carpenter. Names his wife Caty, all of estate real and personal during her widowhood, after which to my only son Henry Brower, but if she should be pregnant with child then estate to descend as law directs in intestacy. Names as executrix his wife Caty. Witnesses: Mary Brower, Abraham Brower, Eneas Gould.5
  • He is mentioned in a letter from Charles Vail to Pitt Carl Esq. on 16 January 1852 Writing from Riverhead (Suffolk Co., Long Island), Charles Vail is seeking the aid of Pitt Carl, Esq. of New York City in determining whether or not his wife (whose mother was a Brower) is entitled to cliams upon the Trinity Church property. Charles Vail writes, "My wife's grandfather lived on the west end of Long Island but lost his property and moved to the state of New Jersey but had his mill at Goanses burnt and other property destroyed by the British in the Revolutionary War. And when I knew the old man he lived in Paterson, New Jersey and was a very aged man and that was in 1815. I think his name was Abraham and he had four sons--Jerry, Abraham, Christopher and William. Christopher and William I knew. He also had 3 daughters--Sally, Caty, and Rebecca, the mother of my wife. My wife's mother is dead and so is all her brothers and sisters." Charles Vail also mentions speaking with "Catherin Cannon sister," who lives in Riverhead, whose mother was also a Brower, but from a different family.6
  • At least one, undocumented source has placed this Jeremiah Brouwer in the family of Abraham Brouwer (ca.1726-1797) and his second wife, Mary Losee. As no son Jeremiah is named in that Abraham's will of Feb 1797, it is unlikely that this Jeremiah, who would have been living at that time, is a son of Abraham Brouwer (1726-1797). Jeremiah is placed in the family of this Abraham Brouwer (1739-1816) based only on the fact that other members of the family are found in the records of the Totawa Dutch Church. Further evidence is sought to either confirm or reject the placement of Jeremiah in the family of Abraham Brouwer and Mary Elsworth.

It was created from territory that had been a part of Essex County, but was removed by Royal decree and added to Bergen County, and originally contained all of present day Bergen Co. west of the Hackensack River, including portions beyond the Passaic River, and added the whole territory between the two rivers from Newark Bay northward to the boundary with New York, and west to the line with Sussex Co., New Jersey. Today, New Barbadoes township exists as Hackensack, which adopted the present name in 1921.
  • The 9 May 1787 will of Charity (Stillwell) Brower, names Theophilus Brower, merchant of NYC, "my late husband's grandson." This statement is the basis for including Jeury in the family of Jeury Brouwer and Elizabeth Hilton. No baptism record has been found for Jeury, and his first marriage in 1750 would imply that he was born by 1732. He is most certainly younger than his three brothers Abraham, William and Adolphus who would have been born between the years of 1726 and 1732, and so it appears that Jeury married at a relatively young age, say between ages 18 and 21. It is curious that in his father's 1754 will, Jeury is not devised a share in the valuable mill property at Gowanus. His three brothers each receive a share of the property while Jeury is given £200, and while his three brothers are all named as executors, Jeury is not. In addition, none of his brothers appear has sponsors for any of Jeury's children (the Abraham Brower who sponsors's Jeury's con William's baptism may be his elder brother, but that can not be claimed with certainty). Therefore, the inclusion of Jeury in this family lies solely in the link provided by the 1787 will of Charity Brower.

Johannes Willemsz Brouwer1

b. 18 September 1687
  • Johannes Willemsz Brouwer was baptized on 18 September 1687 at Old First Dutch Reformed Church, Breuckelen (Brooklyn), Kings Co., Long Island, New York; sponsors Barent Jansen, Maritje Korsen.2
  • Johannes Brouwer is covered by Hoffman in "Brouwer Beginnings" (TAG 23:205): "It is he probably who married Aagje (Egge, Aegye) for the witness to his will was Samuel Brouwer (his half-brother). Johannes removed to Raritan. Oct. 29, 1732 will of John Bruer (Brower) of Somerset County, farmer. Children John oldest, Dirck second, Antie and "last and youngest son." Executors: Johannes Colyer of Long Island, Kings County, and Tunis Post and Hendrick Bris, both of Somerset Co. Witnesses Willem Post, Samuel Bruer (Brower), Cornelia Willemje. Proved Nov. 30, 1732-Nov.13 Inv. £107-6-7 - Lib. B, p.328. Of the four children mentioned in the will, the oldest one was bp. in 1726 at Flatlands, Dirck the second one in the Raritan church in 1730, the two remaining are known only from the will." This assessment by Hoffman is incorrect. The Jan Brouwer who married Aegje (Sprong) and is described by Hoffman above, is a son of Dirck Brouwer and Hannah Dawes, and in the line of descent from Jan Brouwer of Flatlands (see also NYG&BR 138 (2007), pp.256-257).3

Johannes Jansz Brouwer1,2

b. 26 May 1658, d. between 1 September 1712 and 13 October 1712
  • Johannes Jansz Brouwer was baptized on 26 May 1658 at Reformed Dutch Church, New Amsterdam; sponsors Nicholaes Velthuysen, Grietie Jans.3
  • He married Sarah Willems, daughter of Willem Gerritsen and Mary, at Amersfoort, Kings Co., Long Island, New York, on 2 September 1683 (betrothed 12 Aug 1683).4
  • Johannes Jansz Brouwer died between 1 September 1712 and 13 October 1712 at Hempstead, Queens Co., Long Island, New York.
  • Also known as Johannes Brewer.5
  • Also known as Jan Brouwer.6
  • He was a member of at Reformed Protestant Dutch Church, Flatbush, Kings Co., Long Island, New York, in July 1679 upon confession of faith, along with his sister Jannetje Brouwer.7
  • After their marriage Johannes and Sarah lived in Gravesend (Long Island) where he took the oath of Allegiance as a native in 1687 (Garretson - possibly confused with his father). Flatbush Church records show "Johanis Brower and Sara Willemsen" witnessing the baptism of Sara, daughter of Marten Petersen (Wycoff) and Sarah's sister Hanna Willemsen on 22 Sep 1689. Johannes sold his house and garden plot in Gravesend and lot number 27 on Gisbert's Island to Stoffel Langestraat on 23 Jul 1693. He is not found on the census of 1698 in either Gravesend or Hempstead, where he eventually moved to. His will, bearing the name "Johanes Brewer," dated 1 Sep 1712, proved 13 Oct 1712, leaves to his wife Sarah, all houses, lands and meadows in Hempstead, made her executrix and stated "that after my wife's decease that then my own brothers and sisters shall have the estate." Since no children are mentioned and no children's birth records have been found it appears that Johannes and Sarah were childless.
    Bergen in "Early Settlers of Kings Co., N.Y.," adds to the end of his piece on the Adam Brouwer family: "Besides Adam there were other Brouwers who immigrated here at an early date. Among them a John or Johannes Brouwer, who immigrated in 1657, m. Jannetje ___; in 1687 took the oath of allegiance in Flatlands where he resided from 1677 to 1698..." Bergen here is referring to Johannes' father Jan (also called Johannes at times). Totten adds, "lived in Flatlands 1683, 1687, 1707, also lived at Hempstead, Long Island, married Sarah Willems, no children."
  • He took the Oath of Allegiance in September 1687 at Gravesend, Kings Co., New York, as "Johannis brouwer, native."8
  • In 1688, Jan Brouwer was school master, reader in the church and chorister at Flatlands, Long Island. He was preceeded by Willem Gerritse (Van Couwenhoven) who had the position beginning in 1675, and was succeeded by Pieter Tull in 1691.9
  • He witnessed the baptism of Sarah Wyckoff , daughter of Marten Pietersen Wyckoff and Hannah Willemse, on 18 September 1689 at Old First Dutch Reformed Church, Breuckelen (Brooklyn), Kings Co., Long Island, New York, (witnesses Johannis Brouwer, Sara Willems. Also recorded at Flatbush with the date 22 Sep 1689.).10,11
  • On 23 July 1693 Johannes sold his house and garden-spot in Gravesend and lot no. 27 on Gisbert's Island to Stoffel Langestraat.12
  • His will was dated on 1 September 1712 proved 13 Oct 1712. "Johannes Brewer of the township of Hempstead in Queens County being very sick," mentions his wife Sarah, all houses, lands, and meadows in Hempstead, and "my own brothers and sisters" to receive the estate after Sarah's decease. He does not mention any children. Makes his wife executor. Witnessed by Jacob Hicks, Samuel Carmen, Charles Abrams.13

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.16. Hereinafter cited as Three Hundred Years in America.
