"The source of the name for George Brower's daughter, Olivia, was his will, wherein she was given a portion of his "moveable estate." In reading the will, her name appears to be spelled Alehy Lott, wife of Henry Lott. However, the census records for Somerset county, New Jersey, in 1850 lists a Henry Lott whose wife is named Olivia. She appears to be about the right age to be George's daughter, and was born in New Jersey, so I have entered her as being George's daughter. Furthermore, there was living in Henry Lott's household at the time of the 1850 census a young boy named Aaron Hardy, age twelve. I surmise that this young man was the son of Olivia's sister, Rebecca, wife of James Hardy. Furthermore, he was probably named for Olivia's brother, Aaron Henry Brewer.".
