  • He appeared on the census on 1 June 1880 at Baldwin, Queens Co., New York, as Sylvaneus Brower, age 70, born in New York, both parents born in New York, a hotel proprietor. With him are his wife Phebe, daughter Lily E., and step-son William Ackley.10
  • Administration of Sylvanus Brower's estate was granted on 17 September 1884 at Queens Co., New York, granted to his son, Samuel T. Brower.11,12
  • Sylvanus Brower is a possible son of George Brower. Proof of this father-son relationshio has not been found. George Brower does have two males under 10 in household in 1810, and other potential sons (except George, b. ca. 1799) have not been identified. A descendant of Sylvanus Brower has participated in the Brewer DNA Project. However, the test results demonstrate that the participant is not a genetic descendant of Jan Brouwer of Flatlands (the earliest known ancestor of the Browers found in the Five-Towns area of Hempstead). An "adoption event" is suspected, and as the ancestry from the participant back to Sylvanus appears to be sound, that "adoption event" likely occurred with Sylvanus or prior to his birth.

Family 1: Charlotte Ann Treadwell b. c 1816, d. b 1870

Family 2: Phebe Remsen b. c 1832, d. 16 May 1899
