Elias Brewer's Will, 1809

Digital images of Elias Brewer's 1809 will can now be found at a new location. The images were taken from FHL film #0832859 Delaware County, N.Y. Wills v. A-C 1797-1825, and were originally published on the old Brouwer Genealogy website.
Elias was baptized on 25 Dec 1740 at Readington, Hunterdon Co., New Jersey, the son of Elias Brouwer and Helena Willemse, and a great-grandson of Jan Brouwer of Flatlands. He was married to Phebe Lucas, and lived his adult life at Cambridge, Washington Co., New York and later at Kortright in Delaware Co., New York. Elias Brewer served during the Revolutionary War and is buried at Riverside Cemetery, Oneonta, Otsego Co., New York.
Details and sources can be found at the Brouwer Genealogy Database website.
