  1. Hello: I am a Brouwer/Brewer descendant. My grandfather was Richard Brewer 1895-1974, husband of Margaret Brewer 1899-1992. He is being listed with middle initial “F”. My grandfather had no middle name. His son, Richard, was given the middle name Friemuth. Thus, Richard F. Brewer 1924-1970 had a son, Richard F. Jr. If you have any further questions, please contact me @ email above. He also had two daughters.
