  • Also known as Mack Brower.2
  • Montross: A Family History (1958) page 262, states that John "Mack" Brower was a son of Henry Brower and a grandson of Jacob Brower and Hannah Abrams.

However, that marriage took place in 1811, making the couple much too young to be the grandparents of John "Mack" Brower who was born in 1815.
