In the household are his wife Margaret, sons Frank A., and George B., and daughter Alice.6
  • "Judge Hammond H. Brower, who is living in an honored and well-deserved retirement in McCool Junction, Nebraska, has had a history that reaches well back into the first part of the century, and has had a hand in some of the most stirring experiences of early 'times. He is now drawing well towards his eightieth birthday. He bears the burden of years with dignity, arid keeps his intellectual faculties unclouded to the present time.
    Judge Brower was born April 7, 1819, in what is Fulton county, New York, and is a son of Abraham and Philotha [Webster] Brower. His father was a native of New York, and his mother was from Connecticut, and a relative of the famous Noah Webster. The senior Brower was a millwright and a carpenter, and most of his life was engaged in farming. In the summer of 1831 he brought his family to Ashtabula county, Ohio, traveling by wagon into a country which the railroad had not yet penetrated. They located on a farm in the timber twenty-five miles south of the city of Ashtabula. Mr. Brower died at the home of his son in LaSalle county, Illinois, when past ninety-four. His wife died a number of years previously in Ohio.
    Judge Brower was twelve years old when his parents brought him into Ohio, and he had the privilege of an education superior to what was the common lot of farm lads in his time. He passed through the public school, and attended college at Meadville, Pennsylvania. He had learned the shoemaker's trade while a lad, and he worked at it during the years he was preparing for a legal career. He was admitted to the bar in Ashtabula county, where he practiced law quite successfully for a number of years. In 1852 he located on a farm north of Ottawa, Illinois, and after several years had passed resumed the practice of his profession at Pontiac. It was there that he was appointed to fill a vacancy on the bench, and has since worn the title of ''Judge," which accords so well with his judicial spirit and candid mind that it has never been dropped by his friends. In Pontiac he was highly respected, and was frequently a candidate on the Democratic ticket for county and legislative positions. He came within forty-two votes of being elected prosecuting attorney in a county which cast over one thousand normal Republican majority. When he left Pontiac, the members of the bar presented him with a gold-headed cane, bearing the following inscription, ''Presented to H. H. Brower, by the Livingston county Bar, as a token of professional esteem. Pontiac, Illinois, May 22, 1877." He came to this state and entered upon the conduct of a farm, being obliged to give up professional labors on account of failing health. Here he has made his home with the exception of five years spent in Colorado, until he moved into McCool Junction in 1896. He has sold his farm in Fillmore county, but still owns eighty acres of land in this county with a quarter section in Custer county and a block in the junction.
    Judge Brower was married for the first time in Ashtabula county, Ohio, to Miss Maryette Crosby, who died in Earlville, Illinois, in 1854. There were four children born to this marriage, Charles, Casendane, Douglas [deceased] and Castarah. He was married again in LaSalle county, to Miss Margaret J. Furrow, in 1857, by whom four children were born. The oldest of these, Frank, was recently mustered into Company H, Third Nebraska Volunteer Infantry. George is the second in the family, Flora is dead, and Alice is the youngest of the family. The judge has been a Mason for many years, and is probably one of. the oldest in the state, having joined the order in 1849."1
  • He appeared on the census in June 1900 at Hays, York Co., Nebraska, Hammond H. Brower, age 81, born Apr 1819 in New York. Father born in New York, mother in Massachusetts. He is recorded as father-in-law in the household of Joseph Matthews, husband of daughter Castarrah Brower.7
