The George Brower is later in the document referred to as George W. Brower, and it is stated that he is the only heir of Robert Brower, deceased. At the time, George W. Brower was living in Burlington County, New Jersey. His father, Robert Brower, had purchased land, of his father's estate, in 1810, so it is likely that Robert was born prior to 1790.
