Jacob Breuer1

b. before 1691
  • Jacob Breuer was born before 1691 at Bergen, New Jersey.2
  • He married Lea Beeckman at Lutheran Church, New York City, New York, on 6 May 1711.3
  • Surname is also spelled Brewer.4
  • On 14 Jan 1714, Jacob Brouwer of Bergen signed the new charter.4
  • Jacob Breuer was received first Communion at Lutheran Church, New York City, New York, on 25 October 1719.5,6
  • Hoffman states that Jacob is probably not related to the family of Adam Brouwer, and I would add that it is difficult to find a spot to fit him in. He was probably of German descent, is name is found, in the few records there are of him, spelled as either Breuer or Brewer (Ihave not found a case of Brouwer or Brower).
