I am intrigued by this Brouwer/Brewer connection. An ancestor of mine said she remembers Dutch or German being spoken in her grandmothers home and that perhaps the name had been spelled differently. My known line is Brewer as follows: (1)Samuel Brewer - no known dates or places (2)Aaron Brewer b. 15 May 1797, Fayette Co. PA d. 26 Aug 1862 Iowa m. 30 Nov 1820 to Elizabeth Fisher (3)Henry Brewer b. 18 Dec 1831, Fayette Co. PA d. 7 Apr 1896 Mt.Pleasant, Iowa m. 15 Dec 1853 to Sarah A. Daniels (4)William Henry Brewer b. 29 Nov 1862, Iowa d. 7 Dec 1927 Vernon, Kansas m. Ida Hilinda Griest 29 Jan 1885 If you can make a connection I would be very grateful.
