Gerrit Brouwer

b. before 1726
  • Gerrit Brouwer was probably born before 1726.
  • He 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 son, but of which of Uldrick Brouwer's wives cannot be determined with certainty. Gerrit Brouwer stood as sponser for a baptism within this family and this is the only record of him known thus far. No previously known "Gerrit Brouwer" can be identified as a possible sponsor. The name Gerrit is found in Adriantje Pieterse family (he mother being Lysbeth Gerritse) and this is a consideration in the tentative placement of Gerrit in this family.

Hannah Brouwer1

b. 27 December 1730, d. 1815
  • Hannah Brouwer was born circa 1730 at Tuckahoe, Westchester Co., New York.1
  • She was baptized on 27 December 1730 at Dutch Reformed Church, Hackensack, Bergen Co., New Jersey; sponsors Joannes Peek, Maria DeMarest.3
  • She married Edmund Turner circa 1747.
  • Hannah Brouwer died in 1815 at Shawangunk, Ulster Co., New York; at the home of her son, Cornelius Turner.4
  • Another source says Hannah Brouwer died in 1822 at Shawangunk, Ulster Co., New York, at the home of son Cornelius Turner.5,6
  • Also known as Nauchy.7
  • She was baptized as Annaetjen daughter of Cornelius Brouwer and Maria Raffel.3
  • She is decribed as the heir in law (of one twentieth part of a mill seat on the Bronx River) to Nicholas Brouwer (d.1749) and wife of Edmund Turner (d.1805). Hannah was allegedly insane from (at least) 1801 until her death in 1822. She left several children and grandchildren, one of her surviving children was Jemima Thorp (d.1832) mother of Cornelius D. Thorp and married to Peter Thorp when nineteen years of age. Peter died in 1832, and Jemima died in 1842.8
  • She is named in her husband's will on 30 June 1806 to receive all her husband's real estate, together with one feather bed and bedding. (No mention of her mental condition).9
  • In April 1851, Elizabeth Caywood, daughter of Hannah (Nauchy) Turner, gave testimony as to the ancestry of her mother. Elizabeth states that her mother, Hannah, also known as Nauchy, was the only child of Cornelius Brower and Molly De Roselle. Hannah was born in Tuckahoe, Westchester Co., N.Y., about 1730. She married Edmund Turner at Tuckahoe at age 19, and died at Shawangunk in 1816. Edmund Turner had died at Plattekill in Ulster County, prior to Hannah.
    Elizabeth further states that Cornelius was the son of Nicholas and Yannetje Brower, both resided at Bronx River, Westchester Co., N.Y. Cornelius died about 1733 at Bronx River.
    Elizabeth states that the family tradition named eight children of Nicholas and Yannetje Brower: Adolphus, Nicholas, Cornelius, Nazareth, Jenny, Hannah, Lana, and Anna. She understood that Nicholas was a millwright. She thinks that Nicholas went to North Carolina after the Revolution (this cannot be the first Nicholas as he was certainly deceased).
    Mary (De Roselle) Brower survived her husband, Cornelius, and married second, David Demarest (lists five children).7
