John Brower

b. between 1760 and 1770
  • John Brower was born between 1760 and 1770 (based on his age on the 1840 census).
  • He appeared on the census in 1840 at Cass Co., Indiana, as John Brower, with a family of 1 male 20-30, 1 male 70-80, 1 female 20-30.1
  • John is the proposed father of Jeremiah John Brower. This is based on his pressence in Cass Co., Indiana prior to and probably during Jeremiah John Brower's appearance there. Jeremiah's middle name, John, also may imply that his father was named John.
    Assuming that John is the father of Jeremiah John Brower, and as Jeremiah John Brower was born in New York in 1815, we can search the 1820 U.S. census for men named John Brower, living in New York State, with at least one male under age 10 in their household. In addition, the 1840 census states that John Brower of Cass County was aged 70-80 years, therefore born between 1760 and 1770 and therefore over the age of 45 in 1820. The one John Brower who meets both of these conditions is a John Brower at Petersburg, Rensselaer County, with a household of 1 male under 10, 1 male 26-44, 1 male over 45, 1 female under 10, 1 female 10-15, 1 female over 45. This same man is found at Petersburg in 1810 and 1830 as well, but does not appear there in 1840.
  • John Brower and John Brower may be one and the same.

Bogardus Collection, Anneke Jans and Everardus Bogardus Descendants Association, Wilmington, Ohio, Box 5, File NN-2. No sources are provided for the vital information stated. The record shows an incorrect ancestry for Isaac Brower (m. Jemima Quackenbush) back to Anneke Jans (this ancestry has been known to be incorrect for many years now). The accuracy of the families of Jacob Brower (m. Agnes Brower) forward should be confirmed with additional evidence.

John Brower1,2

b. 4 July 1815
  • 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. No evidence is given for this claim, and it appears to be in error. Hannah Abrams, for one, was the wife of John (Jan) Brower, not Jacob Brower. Another Hannah Abrams was married to a James Brower. 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.
  • John Brower was named in his father's will dated on 6 January 1834.1
  • He appeared on the census on 24 August 1850 at Hempstead, Queens Co., New York, John Brower, age 34, born in New York. A farmer with real estate valued at $1500. In the household are his wife Sally; children Hamilton, Margaret A., John, Richardson, and Caroline. Also Richard Brower, age 36, a bayman; Elbert Brower, age 28, a bayman; and Emeline Brower, age 26. John Brower is enumerated between William Brower and Charles Brower.3
  • He was named in the will of Sarah Langdon dated on 21 April 1853 proved 6 Jan 1857 (Queens Co., Lib. 7, page 350). Names her three nephews: David Langdon, Gilbert Langdon and Jesse Langdon. To the eight children of sister Mary, wife of Charles Brower viz: Charles Brower, Richard Brower, John Brower, Hannah Brower, Amelia Brower, Mary Brower, Catherine Brower, Emeline Brower. Names as executor, nephew Jesse Langdon.4
  • John Brower appeared on the census on 22 July 1870 at Hempstead, Queens Co., New York, as John Brower, age 55, born in New York. A farmer, with real estate valued at $5000, personal estate at $3000. In the household are his wife Sarah, and children Margaret, John H., Richardson, Cornelia and Augusta.5
  • He appeared on the census on 12 June 1880 at Village of Woodsburgh & Hewletts, Hempstead, Queens Co., New York, John Brower, age 65, born in New York. Both parents born in New York. A farmer.
