[S1443] Lilly Martin, "Brouwer/Brower/Brewer Research," e-mail message from Martin, Lilly (unknown address) to Chris Chester and et al, 8 Jan 2007, "George Brouwer: I am going to guess this is the brother of Lawrence Brower, as detailed above. In the Nov 1818 congressional petition, filed by Mary Brower, maiden name Losier, widow of Abraham Brower, s/o Abraham, s/o Abraham, s/o Adam, she lists the children of Jeremiah Brower, she says that Jeremiah Brower is dead, and he was the brother of her own dead husband Abraham.
    I have the 22 pages which are photocopies of the ORIGINAL documents, which the National archives sent to me. The copies are very good, and I studied them last summer.
    Mary said that Jeremiah Brower had 7 children, but she only listed the names of 6 children, meaning perhaps one of them was dead prior to Nov 1818 when she filed the petition.
    She named the children as follows:
    Lawrence Brower
    George Brower
    Sarah (Brower) Vachter
    Charity (Brower) Tidemon
    Anna (Brower) Van Cleve (m. Benjamin Van Cleve)
    Rebecca (Brower) Shannon (m. John Shannon)". Hereinafter cited as "L. Martin e-mail 1-8-2007."
