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. Appendix p.C. No additional information is provided.

Cutler and east by Marvins Gore Line and to run far enough north on Marvins Gore Line and John Stinats line to contain just forty acres." Signed by Joseph Cutler, witnessed by H.D. Brewer and Lucy Cutler. This was the same parcel of property, purchased by Joseph Cutler from Jacob Brewer's uncle, John G. Brewer, just three days prior.11
  • On 31 Mar 1839, Jacob Brewer was on Capt, Drury's Militia Roll at Highgate, Vermont.12

Also in the household is the family of Jacob's son, Jackson M.18
  • Although believed to be the same person by some, Jacob Brewer, the husband of Jerusha Westover, and Jacob Brewer, husband of Elizabeth Stickney, are two distinct individuals, seperated by about twenty years at birth. All U.S. census records regarding Jacob and Jerusha Brewer clearly show that he was born in about 1801, and was just a year or so old when the other Jacob Brewer (b. 1782) married Elizabeth Stickney in Highgate, Vermont.
  • The parents of Jacob Brewer have not been confirmed by either a birth or death record. If a birth record does exist for Jacob it has not been found, and death records in Floyd Co., Iowa were not kept until the year 1880, while it is probable that Jacob died during the decade of the 1870s. Jacob is placed in the family of Peter and Hannah (Sanborn) Brewer because of his close proximity to Peter on U.S. census records in Highgate, and because of land transactions recorded in the Highgate Town Records involving Jacob with Peter Brewer, and Jacob with Rensselaer Brewer. The possibility is open however, that Jacob is a son of Peter's brother, Jacob Brewer and his wife, Elizabeth Stickney.
  • A descendant of Jacob Brewer and Jerusha Westover has participated in the Brewer DNA Project, Kit no. 65385. The results are consistant with and confirm a descent from Adam Brouwer (ca.1620-1692).19

Jacob Brewer1,2

b. 20 May 1782
  • Jacob Brewer was born on 20 May 1782 at near Brunswick Center, Rensselaer Co. (then Albany Co.), New York.3
  • He was baptized on 2 June 1782 at Gilead Evangelical Lutheran Church, Center Brunswick, New York; the sponsors were parents Jeremias and Hanna Brewer.3
  • He married Elizabeth Stickney, daughter of Joseph Stickney and Mehitable Sawyer, at Highgate, Franklin Co., Vermont, on 22 May 1802 by Matthew Sax, J.P. (rec. 23 May 1802, Highgate TR).4,5,6
  • Also known as Jacob Brower.5
  • Jacob Brewer is named in the Highgate, Vermont Town Records in 1803. On 28 Jun 1804, Jacob Brewer, in Highgate, Vermont, was involved in a land transaction with James Wilson, "Know all men by here present that I Jacob Brewer of Alburgh town in the county of Franklin and state of Vermont, do for and in consideration of ten dollars done in hand said before this meeting here of James Wilson of Highgate in this county and state ...given grant bargin of sale and for ever quit unto him the said James Wilson and by there presents do warrant to defend from all demands of possician (sic) the said James Wilson.

To have and to hold this above granted promises with all the privalidges (sic) of after ___ there unto belonging to him this said James Wilson his hiers and___." Signed by Jacob Brewer, witnessed by Matthew Sax, dated 28 Jun 1804.7
  • , By a deed dated 10 March 1803 (recorded 18 May 1803) Abel Baker of Highgate sold for fifty dollars to William Hefflon of Highgate, a tract or parcel of land lying in Alburgh bounded by the lot Elisha Higgins now lives on, by John Wilson on the east, and by Jacob Brewer on the south.8
  • On 28 Jun 1804, Jacob Brower of Alburgh, Franklin Co., Vermont, for $10, sold to James Wilson of Highgate, Vermont, "a piece of land lying and being in Alburgh bounded as follows (vis) on the west by said Wilson on the north by Wm. Hefflin on the east by Peter Brewer and on the south by Reuben Willard containing 25 acres of land," signed as "Jacob Bruer."9
  • Jacob Brewer appears on the Grand List of Highgate, Vermont in 1805 (with an estate valued at 26.50), 1806 (at 60.00), 1807 (at 60.00).10
  • On 6 Apr 1809, Jacob Brewer witnessed a deed of Hercules Lent to Levi Stowe.11
  • On 7 Apr 1809, Jacob Brewer of Highgate leased from Herman Allen of Colchester, Vermont 100 acres on Lot #26 (eight tenths of all mines and minerals, white oak & pine timber and all running water wherever mills may be constructed always excepted) for the rent of twelve cents and five mills payable on the first day of January 1810. Jacob to pay all taxes. The lease was signed by both parties on 5 May 1809. Herman Allen was, evidently, a large absentee land owner. The Highgate Town Records of this period contain numerous lease agreements between Herman Allen and many of the residents.12
  • On 1 May 1809 (at Swanton), Jacob Brewer and Robert Kent, both of Highgate, Vermont, sold to Andrew Bostwick the whole of Lot #3 in the first division of lands in Highgate, for the consideration of 120 dollars current money, "the aforesaid meaning the lot of land leased by Herman Allen to Richard Tinar."13
  • Jacob Brewer appeared on the census in 1810 at Highgate, Franklin Co., Vermont, appears as Jacob Brower (Ancestry.com has transcribed the name as Brown) with a family of 1 male under 10, 1 male 10-15, 1 male 16-25, 2 females under 10, 1 female 10-15, 1 female 16-25. (With two children aged 10-15, it is more likely the parents were aged 26-44).14
  • Although believed to be the same person by some, Jacob Brewer, the husband of Jerusha Westover, and Jacob Brewer, husband of Elizabeth Stickney, are two distinct individuals, seperated by about twenty years at birth. All U.S. census records regarding Jacob and Jerusha Brewer clearly show that he was born in about 1801, and was just a year or so old when the other Jacob Brewer (b. 1782) married Elizabeth Stickney in Highgate, Vermont.
  • Jacob Brewer and his wife, Elizabeth apparently disapear from the records in Vermont before 1820. As the U.S. census records prior to 1850 offer limited information, trying to identify the couple with some degree of certainty in the U.S. has come up empty. It is also very possible that they moved north to Canada.

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.19. Hereinafter cited as Three Hundred Years in America.

Johnson Smith, son of Capt. Johnson Smith, was married to Arethusa Fuller. Both lived on Mr. Bradford's land. Their witnesses were Walter Smith and James Fuller.
