More From the William B. Bogardus Collection

Below are some links for additional material gleaned from the William B. Bogardus Collection. This is an assortment of varied and, for the most part, unrelated material. Some of those mentioned can be found on the Brouwer Genealogy Database website. Some others will be added to either the BGD or the Drake Genealogy Database websites, and there will be others that I simply do not have the time to enter into the databases, but the material is here for those who are interested.

Thomas Brewer Biographical Sketch. Thomas Brewer was born in Cornwall, England, came to the United States and lived at New Rochelle and Mamaroneck in Westchester County, New York.

James F. Brower Biographical Sketch. James F. Brower was born in Ulster County, New York, a son of David Brower and Eliza Lewis (according to the sketch). The ancestry of David Brower, the stated father of James F. Brower, has not been traced.

Some Brower and Drake burials at Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn. This handful of burials was taken from Minnie Cohen's typescript of 1932. I have not been able to locate all of them using the "burial search" at the Green-Wood Cemetery website.

Harvey Brower of Babylon, Long Island. Notes on the brief mention of Harvey Brower found in volume 14, no. 1 (Summer 1988) of the Suffolk County Historical Society "Register". Harvey has not been placed in a Brower family.

Tombstone Inscriptions, Brown Co., Ohio. Pages including those named Brewer or Brower.

Records of the First Lutheran Church in the City of Albany, N.Y. From the "Vosburg Collection." A few Brower and Bogardus entries.

I believe that it was about a year ago that I stated that I wanted to get through and make available by year's end (meaning end of 2012) all of what I had not yet gone through in the William B. Bogardus Collection. Well, that certainly did not happen, and I'm still looking at better then 500 items to consider. Sorry about the slow rate of uploading, but we will eventually get it all done. Patience is a virtue.
