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.2

Cornelia Brouwer1

b. 8 April 1775
  • Cornelia Brouwer was born on 8 April 1775.2
  • She was baptized on 1 October 1777 at Reformed Dutch Church, Albany, New York; sponsors Wiliam Conclin, Jane Brouwer.2
  • She married James Tarrant between 1807 and 1809.3
  • Also known as Catherina Brouwer.4
  • Catherine is named in her father's will, listed last among the daughters. (Cornelia is not named in her father's will dated 17 Sep 1777, although she was baptized on October 1st of that year).5
  • Note*: 5
  • It appears that Nicholas Brouwer's daughters, Cornelia and Catherine, are one and the same. Catherine is not named as a daughter of Nicholas Brouwer and Sarah Drake by Martha Pitcairn (who would be her niece). Martha does mention Cornelia Brower and states that she married James Tarrant. However, another document refers to "Catherine Tarrant." Catherine is named in her father's will (1777) while Cornelia is not. In a letter from Robert Pitcairn to "Mr. Prince," he refers to the six daughters of Nicholas Brower, namely Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Sarah, Lany and Catherine. ( Another possibility may be that Cornelia died at a young age, and Catherine, still young herself, then was given her older sister's name). It is noted that no baptism record for Catherine has been found, while a baptism record for Cornelia does exist.3,6
