I am descendant of John Alen Brower born 1825 in Woodstock, New Brunswick, son of John and Catherine Fletcher Brower.John Sr was born about 1787 in Sunbury County, New Brunswick.
I have been working for some time trying to identify John Sr's parents.I know think is most likely his parents were Cornelius and Rebecca Burt Brower.
Do you know anything about any of the other children of Cornelius and Rebecca Burt Brower?Rebecca's obituary states she was the mother of twelve children. d. 19th May, Rebecca BREWER w/o Cornelius BREWER, Keswick (York Co.) age 82, mother of 12 sons and daughters, grandmother of 72 children, great-grandmother of 32 children. Through analysis of published marriage records and "Vital Statistics From New Brunswick (Canada) Newspapers" as transcribed by Daniel F. Johnson of Saint John, NB I have determined that some of these children might be: John b. 1787 m. Catherine Fletcher 3/21/1815 Cornelius b. 1793 m. Mary Morehouse 1/23/1823 Caroline b. 1795 d. 1866 Miss Caroline BREWER, age 70, died in the Alm House(St. John) Friday last. She had been an inmate of the house the last 35 years, being the oldest inhabitant. She had not spoken an intelligible word all that time. Having been disappointed in love in early life, she made a vow never to speak another word, and she religously kept her vow. 8 October 1866 MN
Mary b. 1797 m. Moses Lawrence 8/4/1819 James Brower b. 1800 d. Keswick (York Co.) 14th inst., James BREWER, age 64. 18 June 1864 NBC
