If Melinda was born in Holland, she probably was not part of this family. These Brouwers (Brewers)had already been in America since 1642. This might help you in your research. It is a record of what I believe to be Matthew's (Maty)marriage. Carstiena probably became Christina. I haven't researched this line. My interest is with Matthew's brother Jacob.

The following is taken from "First Record Book of the 'Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow' Organized in 1697 and now The First Reformed Church of Tarrytown, N. Y.," An original translation of its brief historical matter, and a copy, faithful to the letter, of every personal and local name, of its four registers of members, consistorymen, baptisms, and marriages, from its organization to 1791, by Rev. David Cole, D.D., Yonkers, N. Y., Published by The Yonkers Historical and Library Association, 1901.

406. Apr. 26, 1772 - Maty Brouwer, j. m., and Carstiena Van Waart, j. d. Both b. and l. in Philipsburgh.
