Bogardus Collection, Anneke Jans and Everardus Bogardus Descendants Association, Wilmington, Ohio. Privately printed. This work contains errors, among them the false account of Anneke Jans descent from William of Orange. This account had been proved a fantasy long before 1988, and its inclusion in the reprint edition is unfortunate. The account of Pieter Adamsz Brouwer is also in error, and there may be other errors with the earlier Brouwer generations. Latter generations are recounted by descendants who lived in the latter part of the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries, and the ancestors who they describe were their parents and grandparents. In addition to the original work of Bertha C. Spencer, the "re-publisher" Sharon Brewer Dodge, includes her own Brewer lineage with the incorrect claim that her ancestor, Willis Brewer of North Carolina, was a son of Jacob Brouwer (b.1709) and a grandson of Sijbrandt Brouwer & Sarah Webber of New York City (this claim has no basis in fact). There is also a short note from William B. Bogardus who questions this connection. There is no factual evidence that would tie Willis Brewer of North Carolina (late 1700s) to any of the Brouwer families of New Netherland. p.17. Hereinafter cited as Three Hundred Years in America.

In addition to the original work of Bertha C.

Abraham Brewer1

b. 15 April 1744, d. 17 May 1814
  • Abraham Brewer was born on 15 April 1744 (from g.s.).2
  • He married Eunice Griswold, daughter of Elijah Griswold and Abigail Thomas, between 1775 and 1780.3
  • Abraham Brewer died on 17 May 1814 at Chemung Co., New York; aged 70y 1m 2d.2,4
  • He was buried at Riverside Cemetery, near Lowman, Chemung Co., New York.5
  • He was a Revolutionary War soldier. Said to have served in the 7th Regt., Albany Co. Militia, Col. Abraham J. Van Alstine (hunting and guarding tories, no dates). Also in Col. Hay's Regt., Orange Co. Militia in 1778 (note: this second claim likely belong to a different Abraham Brower).2
  • He appeared on the census in 1790 at Chemung, Montgomery Co., New York, as Abraham Brewer, with a household of 1 male over 16, 1 male under 16 and 4 females. He is enumerated next to Daniel Brown? (maybe Brower), followed by Elijah Griswold and Gideon Griswold.6
  • Tioga County was set off from Montgomery County in 1791. Chemung County was formed from Tioga County on 29 March 1836 (New York. Laws of New York. 59th Session, Chapter 077, Section 1, page 102).
  • He appeared on the assessment list of at Chemung, (then Tioga Co.), New York, on 10 December 1799 with a house and farm. Real estate valued at $603, personal estate at $88. He is recorded just after James Wilson, and just before, Gideon Griswold, Jonathan Griswold and Elisha Griswold.7
  • He appeared on the census in 1800 at Chemung, Tioga Co., New York, as Abm. Brewer with a household of 1 male under 10, 1 male 10-15, 1 male over 45, 1 female 16-25, 1 female over 45. Listed in succession are Elisha Griswold, Elijah Griswold, Gideon Griswold, and Abm. Brewer.8,9
  • He appeared on the census in 1810 at Chemung, Tioga Co., New York, as Abraham Brewer, with a household of 1 male over 45 and 1 female over 45. Enumerated on the same sheet are Elijah Brewer and Abraham Brewer, Jr.10
  • Abraham Brewer and Peter Brewer both have descendants who have participated in the Brewer DNA Project. The results demonstrate that both Abraham and Peter are not descended from either Adam Brouwer or Jan Brouwer. Both participants belong to the haplogroup R1a1, which to date (Jan 2009) is not represented by any other participant in the Brewer DNA Project. However, there is not enough similarity in the test results of the two participants to imply that Abraham and Peter are closely related.
    The origin of R1a is identified by genetic marker M17, while the subgroup R1a1 is identified by marker M198. R1a1 is typical of present day Eastern Europeans, Central Asians and South Asians. Further subgroups are known. R1a1a is found in a significant minority of Eastern European people, while R1a1b is found in low frequency in Scotland, Ireland and France, and R1a1c is found in low frequency in Scotland and Ireland. The participants may choose to have their haplogroups further confirmed by SNP testing. Additional descendants of both Abraham and Peter are sought for participation in the Brewer DNA Project.11
  • Discovering origins of Abraham Brewer, should begin with finding the location of his marriage to Eunice Griswold. It is therefore suggested that researchers should concentrate on finding the exact location of the family of Elijah Griswold during the period of 1770 to 1780.
  • John Brewer and Abraham Brewer are both Revolutionary War soldiers buried in Riverside Cemetery, Chemung, New York. Any relationship between the two as not yet been determined.

Bogardus Collection, Anneke Jans and Everardus Bogardus Descendants Association, Wilmington, Ohio. Privately printed. This work contains errors, among them the false account of Anneke Jans descent from William of Orange. This account had been proved a fantasy long before 1988, and its inclusion in the reprint edition is unfortunate. The account of Pieter Adamsz Brouwer is also in error, and there may be other errors with the earlier Brouwer generations. Latter generations are recounted by descendants who lived in the latter part of the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries, and the ancestors who they describe were their parents and grandparents. In addition to the original work of Bertha C. Spencer, the "re-publisher" Sharon Brewer Dodge, includes her own Brewer lineage with the incorrect claim that her ancestor, Willis Brewer of North Carolina, was a son of Jacob Brouwer (b.1709) and a grandson of Sijbrandt Brouwer & Sarah Webber of New York City (this claim has no basis in fact). There is also a short note from William B. Bogardus who questions this connection. There is no factual evidence that would tie Willis Brewer of North Carolina (late 1700s) to any of the Brouwer families of New Netherland. p.34. Hereinafter cited as Three Hundred Years in America.

  • Adam Brouwer is covered by Hoffman in "Brouwer Beginnings" (TAG 24:27-28). "Most authorities consider him to be the founder of the Monmouth County, New Jersey branch of the Brouwer-Brewer family. If this is correct, and I believe it is he m. first Deborah Allen..." The children mentioned in their father's and their grandmother Allen's wills "are to be found in Monmouth County. Stillwell (6:51) makes a mistake in stating that Elazerius was a son of Adam by his second wife, Deborah Allen. She was his first wife. Some authorities have given Adam a first wife, Magdalena Jacobs, but this is a mix-up with the wife of Adam the settler. The children joined the Quakers." The Cropsy notes at the Long Island Historical Society give a different version of the family (from Hoffman's). "They list an additional daughter Lydia (not named in the wills) who m. a Throgmorton; Edmund Lafreta is called Edward; and the husband of Deborah, Francis Morris. Records not yet come to light may straighten out these apparent contradictions."9
  • It is noted that the birth dates of the children of Adam Brewer and Deborah Allen do not come from any primary source. They have been passed down in various published accounts of the family with their origins having been said to be a Bible record, a copy of which was received by William A.D. Eardeley prior to the publication of his manuscript in 1923 ("Brower Family and Langdon Family," Queens County Public Library).
  • In my own analysis I now consider Adam Brewer as only a possible son of Jacob Brouwer and Annatje Bogardus. He has traditionally been placed as the son, Adam baptized in 1696 at the Brooklyn Dutch Church. However, it is important to note that there is no direct or primary evidence known that links the person named Adam Brewer, found in Monmouth County, New Jersey, to the son Adam, baptized by the couple Jacob Brouwer and Annatje Bogardus. To date this association as only been assumed and passed on from one published account to the next. It appears that to date, no thorough thought has been given to this matter. William Hoffman himself (in "Brouwer Beginnings") simply states that he accepts this placement but does not state a reason for his acceptance. However, if the same degree of investigation and thought is applied to the placement of Adam Brewer among the sons of the progenitor, Adam Brouwer, then an entirely different conclusion is likely to be drawn.
  • Adam Brewer and Adolphus Willemsz Brouwer may be one and the same While tradition has placed Adam Brewer of Monmouth County as Adam, son of Jacob Brouwer & Annatje Bogardus, circumstantial evidence such as naming patterns imply that Adam Brewer may have been born Adolphus, the son of Willem Brouwer and Elizabeth Simpson.
