Brower Visiter Center." He is often referred to as "the Father of Lake Itasca." In 1896, he published his findings on the ultimate source of the Missouri River, a place now known as Brower's Spring in the Centennial Mountains of Montana, just below the ridge of Mt. Jefferson.

(The site is 100 miles further west than the site originally declared to be the source by Meriwether Lewis in 1805).1

b. 1760
  • James Brower was born in 1760.1
  • He married Sarah Smith circa 1784.1

  • James Brower appeared on the census in 1790 at South Hempstead, Queens Co., New York, as James Brewer, with a household of 1 male over 16, 2 males under 16, 2 females.2
  • He appeared on the census in 1800 at Hempstead, Queens Co., New York, as James Brewer, with a household of 3 males under 10, 2 males 10-15, 1 male 26-44, 2 females under 10, 1 female 26-44.3,4
  • He appeared on the census in 1810 at Hempstead, Queens Co., New York, as James Brewer, with a household of 1 male under 10, 2 males 10-15, 2 males 16-25, 1 male 26-44, 3 females under 10, 1 female 16-25, 1 female 26-44. He is enumerated in succession with William Brewer and John Brewer.5
  • He appeared on the census in 1820 at Queens Co., New York, as James Brower, with a household of 1 male under 10, 1 male 10-16, 2 males 16-26, 1 male over 45, 1 female 16-26, 1 female over 45, 1 person engaged in agriculture. (Town is not stated).6
  • James Brower is claimed as a son of a son Brouwer as suggested by William A.D. Eardeley in his 1923 manuscript, "Brower Genealogy and Langdon Genealogy." Eardeley places James as a son of the unnamed son mentioned in the will of Jan Brouwer. Eardeley states that he can find no place for James among the children of brothers John and Dirck Brewer of Hempstead, Long Island. He further reasons that this unnamed son could be a Jacob Brewer who is found in Nova Scotia, an evacuee from New York after the Revolution.
    There is no evidence to link the Jacob Brewer of Nova Scotia to this family. There is also no evidence, yet found, as to who the unnamed son is, or if he survived childhood. James Brower may well be a son of Dirck Brower (son of Jan Brouwer and Aege Sprong).
