Abstracts of Wills for Queens Co., New York, 1787-1850

Here is another selection from the William B. Bogardus Collection.

Brower and Brewer in Abstracts of Wills for Queens Co., NY, compiled by Ray C. Sawyer.

This is a large file of thirty pages. You may want to download it, which can be done from the drop-down file menu in the top left corner. The pages here contain abstracts that include persons with the surname BROWER or BREWER. There are many other names found on these thirty pages and therefore those researching families in Queens County, New York may find some other useful information.

The pages come from Ray C. Sawyer's four volume typescript titled Abstracts of Wills for Queens County, New York. Volume 1 (1936) covers 1787-1813. Volume 2 (1937) covers 1813-1828. Volume 3 (1937) covers 1828 to 1843. Volume 4 (1938) covers 1843 to 1850. Heritage Quest Online does not have these volumes available, and I have been unable to find another online location for the complete set. They are available on microfilm from the Family History Library on film #0860322. This film also contains other items regarding probate, burial and gravestones in Rensselaer County, New York.
