According to family history as well as her headstone which is located in Goshen, Elkhart, Indiana, my great grandmother's maiden name is "Browen".However, I anticipate that the name was misspelled and the correct spelling of her maiden name is actually "Brower".
Martha (nee Brower) Beasecker was born about Oct 1836 in Pennsylvania.Martha died 03 Mar 1912 in South Bend, St. Joseph, Indiana.Martha married Samuel Beasecker (b. 13 Feb 1831, d. 06 Jun 1888) about 1855 in Elhart, Indiana.
In the 1880 U.S. Census for Baugo, Elkhart, Indiana, there is a Magdalena Brower (never married) living with/near several Beasecker/Besecker families.I have a suspicion that Magdalena is the sister of Martha.
Unfortunately I don't have any information on Martha, her siblings or her parents.If anyone possibly has any information on Martha, Magdalena or others in this line please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.All of my latest information can be found on our family website of http://www.wheelergenealogy.comhttp://www.wheelergenealogy.com.
