    Brower & Family", prepared sometime after the birth of the apparent last
    child of George who was born Jan. 3 (or 8) 1877. The chart was sent to me
    by Alfred H. Brower of Elmwood Park, NJ (now deceased) many years ago. It
    is very light and readable primarily with a magnifying glass. It contains a
    printed "Copy of Affidavit" that I will copy below, after the genealogical
    data.

    The line of descent is from Domine Everardus Bogardus and Anneke Jans
    (not Webber as on the chart), through their son William and his second wife
    Wyntje Sybrandts; through their daughter Blandina, who married Theophilus
    Ellsworth; and then through their daughter Mary Ellsworth who married
    Abraham Brower, Oct. 18, 1758. The chart continues: "Christopher Brower
    (son of said Abraham Brower) was born in Brooklyn. In 1768 he married
    twice. His first wife, Ellen Van Houten - second wife Elizabeth Garretson".

    "The children of the first marriage were Maria, Richard, Charity and
    Catherine. By the second marriage, Ann and John".
    "Richard Brower, son of Christopher Brower, was born Dec. 15th, 1797.
    He settled in Patterson (sp), New Jersey. On Jul 20, 1820, he married
    Margaret Van Horn, who was born July 20, 1800, and was the daughter of John
    Van Horn".
    "Of the marriage there were the following children: - John, Richard,
    Abraham, Elizabeth, Henry, Ellsworth and George Vanderhoof Brower".
    "George Vanderhoof Brower - born October 18, 1840. Married in 1871,
    Mary Ellen Tompkins, born in 1843 (or 1848) - Died in 1907"
    "Children: Genevieve Brower, born Oct. 4, 1872; Edith Daly Brower, born
    Jan. 27, 1874; George Ellsworth Brower, born Jan. 22, 1875; ; Ernest Taylor
    Brower, born Jan. 3 (or 8), 1877".

    The "Copy of Affidavit" follows:

    "State of New Jersey)
    Essex County)

    Be it remembered that on the tenth day of March in the year of our
    Lord one thousand eight hundred and twenty, before me, Philemon Dickerson,
    notary public, in and for the State of New Jersey, appeared Abraham Delaney,
    who being duly sworn on his oath, saith that he served as a private in the
    Revolutionary Army from the year of our Lord 1776 to 1782. That he was
    present at the Battle on Flat Bush Hill in 1776 under Captain Rogers. That
    Joshua Drake was Colonel and Generals McDougal and Putnam were Commanding
    Officers. This deponent further saith that he was acquainted with Abraham
    Brower and Jeremiah Brower, that they owned a flour mill, house, barn and
    work house, situated a few miles from Brooklyn, on Long Island. That when
    the army retreated from Flat Bush, the mill house, barn and work house, and
    a boat loaded with flour laying near the mill, all belonging to the said
    Abraham and Jeremiah Brower, were burned by the rifle company, and as this
    deponent was then informed, by the order of the commanding officers, and
    this deponent further saith that the two stacks of wheat belonging to the
    said Abraham and Jeremiah Brower, were burnt at the same time and in the
    same manner. And this deponent further saith that the said Abraham and
    Jeremiah Brower were absent from home at the time, and employed in the
    service of the United States. This deponent further saith that he is
    seventy seven years old and resides in the County of Orange, in the State of
    New York, and now receives his pension under the late law of Congress, and
    further saith not"

    Brower is taken from the family Bible".

    in the destruction of the Mills and other property of Abraham and Jeremiah
    Brower. Application was made so late and so long after the war, and owing
    to the poverty of the country about that time, that no money was received or
    other compensation for the destruction of the property by the United States
    Troops on the first day of the Battle of Long Island".
