Family of Johanis Brewer, Westchester Co NY, 1778
Posted by: Clayton Heathcock (ID *****5517) Date: January 03, 2007 at 11:59:15
  of 8988

The folllowing will was recorded in 1778:

Page 149.--"In the name of God, Amen, June 19, 1778. I, JOHANIS BREWER, of the Manor of Philipsburgh, in Westchester County, being in perfect health. My will is that my son Jacob shall have all my improvements where I now live, on condition that he gives his sister, Peggy Brewer, a good maintainance. I leave to my daughter Peggy a good bed and furniture. I leave all household goods to my four sons and three daughters, viz., Deliverance, Peter, Matthew, Jacob, Angeltie, wife of John Sispen, Lena, wife of Peter Mabie, and Peggy, and all my movables. I make my friend, William Yurksea, and John Yurksea, executors."
Witnesses, Johanis Britt, William Britt, William Davids. Proved, January 13, 1780.

Does anyone know anything about this family? I am searching for a Matthew Brewer who appeared in the Mississippi Territory in the early 1800s and died in Marengo Co AL in 1832. The foregoing will mentions a Mattiew Brewer, son of the Johanis Brewer who wrote the will. Matthew Brewer is recorded in the Westchester Co NY census in 1790 but not in 1800-1820.
