Sounds like there could be a connection -- New York and Ohio as well as overlapping dates.
My ancester John Brewer is reported to have been born 3-26-1733 in Pennsylvania, Holland or New York. He died in 1809 in Miami, Scioto or Adams County, Ohio. John served in the Tryon County Militia under Col. Klock during the Revolution. Eleven children were living at the time of his death.
