Nicholas Birdsall Brower1,2,3

b. 26 April 1772, d. 22 August 1837 or 27 August 1838
  • Nicholas Birdsall Brower was born on 26 April 1772 at Dutchess Co., New York.1,2
  • He married first at New York City, New York, on 13 January 1798 Ruth Prince, daughter of Samuel Prince, by Rev. Dr. Foster.1,2,4
  • Nicholas Birdsall Brower married second at Saugatuck (Westport), Fairfield Co., Connecticut, on 11 January 1817 Sally Hurlbut, daughter of John Hurlbut and Anna Adams, at the house of John Hurlburt, according to the form of solemnization of matrimony in the Protestant Episcopal Church, by Reuben Sherwood, Rector of St. James Church, Hyde Park.2
  • Nicholas Birdsall Brower died on 22 August 1837 or 27 August 1838 at Utica, Oneida Co., New York; (both dates are recorded in the same Bible record).2
  • Lena Brouwer and Nicholas Birdsall Brower, asked the Chancery Court of Dutchess County on 17 April 1833, to take depositions from William Lane and Josiah Drake. Their reasons stated were that they expect to be made a party (with other devices and heirs of Annetie Jans widow of Domine Everardus Bogardus, deceased) in a suit in some Court, concerning the title to certain lands in the City of New York.
    The deposition of William Lane was taken at his house in the town of New Paltz, Ulster County on 23 May 1833. In his deposition William Lane states that he is 75 years of age, and that his mother, Elizabeth Drake, was the daughter of William Drake, and that William Drake was the son of Magdalena Brower and John Drake to whom the said Magdalena Brower had been married. The deponent further states that the said Magdalena was the sister of Adolphus Brouwer, and that the said Magdalena and Adolphus were the children of Jacob Brouwer and Annetie his wife, formerly Annetie Bogardus. That the said Magdalena was the mother of Josiah Drake and great-grandmother of Helena Manning, the said Helenor Manning being a daughter of Nicholas Brouwer who was the son of Adolphus who was the son of Jacob Brouwer.
    The deponent then claims that the said Magdalena and her husband lived on a farm in New York called the Domine's Hook containing upwards of 130 acres, and that Magdalena claimed the land as hers. The deponent understood and believes that the house was burnt down during the Revolutionary War while Magdalena lived there. The deponent heard that the Church of England claimed the property and that he understood that there had been lawsuits regarding the property but did not know the particulars.
    (This account of William Lane's, specifically with regard th the claim that Magdalena Brower and John Drake were the parents of William Drake and Josiah Drake, is not consistant with other evidence, particularly with the claim that John Drake was the father of William and Josiah. What is of concern is that William Lane, having been born in 1758, would have had the opportunity to personally know his claimed great-grandfather, John Drake, who was living as late as 1779.).5

"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.".
