George Brower

b. 20 September 1767, d. 26 January 1850
  • George Brower was born on 20 September 1767.1
  • He is said to have married Hannah Bennet, daughter of Abraham Bennet and Catharina Heyer, (but this claim may be in error, as it was more likely that Hannah Bennet married a contemporary George Brower in Kings County).1,2
  • George Brower married Ann Combs at St. George's Episcopal Church, Hempstead, Queens Co., New York, on 12 December 1796.3
  • George Brower died on 26 January 1850.1
  • Also known as George Brouwer.1
  • Also known as George Brewer.4
  • He appeared on the census in 1800 at South Hempstead, Queens Co., New York, as George Brewer, with a household of 1 male under 10, 1 male 26-44, 1 female 16-25.4
  • He appeared on the census in 1810 at Hempstead, Queens Co., New York, as George Brewer, with a household of 1 male under 10, 1 male 10-15, 1 male 26-44, 1 female under 10, 1 female 26-44. Oliver Brewer is enumerated on the same census sheet.5
  • He appeared on the census in 1820 at Queens Co., New York, as George Brewer, with a household of 2 males under 10, 1 male 26-45, 1 male over 45, 1 female under 10, 1 female 26-45. (Town not stated).6
  • George Brower is a possible son of George Brower. although at this time there is no direct evidence or record to back up this possiblity. George Brower's death cert. claims his birth place as Rockaway, and he died at a poor house in Hempstead. The census records of 1860, 1870 and 1880 all find him living in households in which no direct relationship between George and any other member has been found. His death cert. and the 1880 census states that he was a widower, although the identity of his wife is yet to be discovered. It is very likely that George descends from the couple Jan Brouwer and Aegje Sprong, but from which son, or grandson of that couple is not clear. His placement as a possible son of George Brower is simply a guess until more evidence is found.
  • Sylvanus Brower is a possible son of George Brower. Proof of this father-son relationshio has not been found. George Brower does have two males under 10 in household in 1810, and other potential sons (except George, b. ca. 1799) have not been identified. A descendant of Sylvanus Brower has participated in the Brewer DNA Project. However, the test results demonstrate that the participant is not a genetic descendant of Jan Brouwer of Flatlands (the earliest known ancestor of the Browers found in the Five-Towns area of Hempstead). An "adoption event" is suspected, and as the ancestry from the participant back to Sylvanus appears to be sound, that "adoption event" likely occurred with Sylvanus or prior to his birth.

George Brower1

b. circa 1799, d. 27 June 1882
  • George Brower was born circa 1799 at Rockaway, Town of Hempstead, Queens Co., New York.2
  • He died on 27 June 1882 at Hempstead, Queens Co., New York; age 83.3
  • He appeared on the census of 20 July 1860 in the household of Henry V. Smith at Roslyn, North Hempstead, Queens Co., New York; Henry V. Smith, age 47, born in New York. A merchant. Real estate valued at $6000, personal estate at $4500. In the household are his wife, Mary E., children, Richard W., William H., Sylvanus E. Also George Brower, age 60, born in New York, a farm laborer, and Sarah A. Morris, age 32, born in New Jersey, a servant.4
  • George Brower appeared on the census of 26 July 1870 in the household of George Bedell at Hempstead, Queens Co., New York; George Bedell, age 44, born in New York. A farmer. Real estate valued at $1500, personal estate at $500. In the household are his wife, Charity, children, Hannah, George R., Frederick, John H., and George Brower, age given as 64, born in New York, a farm laborer.5
  • George Brower appeared on the census on 15 June 1880 at Hempstead, Queens Co., New York, George Brower, age given as 85, born in New York. Both parents born in New York. A laborer and a widower. He is enumerated in the poor house, which is kept by Alfred Matthew. The poor house has about twenty occupants.6
  • George Brower is a possible son of George Brower. although at this time there is no direct evidence or record to back up this possiblity. George Brower's death cert. claims his birth place as Rockaway, and he died at a poor house in Hempstead. The census records of 1860, 1870 and 1880 all find him living in households in which no direct relationship between George and any other member has been found. His death cert. and the 1880 census states that he was a widower, although the identity of his wife is yet to be discovered. It is very likely that George descends from the couple Jan Brouwer and Aegje Sprong, but from which son, or grandson of that couple is not clear. His placement as a possible son of George Brower is simply a guess until more evidence is found.
