"In the will of George Brower, Jemima is listed as his child, the wife of John Parks. The spelling in the will is difficult to read, but the 1850 census of Monmouth county, New Jersey, lists the wife of John Parks as Jemima, age 60, born in New Jersey. This makes her about the right age to be the daughter of George Brower of Monmouth county. Furthermore, in the publication "Marriages of Monmouth County, New Jersey, 1795-1843," the license for the marriage of John Parkus and Jemica Brower was issued on December 9, 1810. Since the spellings in such publications are not always accurate, due to difficulty for the compiler to read someone's writing, I believe this is the marriage license for Jemima Brower and John Parks, and that they are the same persons mentioned in George Brower's will.".
