Re: peter brewer of NJ or PA, died in KY

According to my brother's DNA tests, Peter Brewer (b. ca. 1765 in NJ or PA; died ca. 1840 in Kentucky) does NOT appear to be a direct descendant of Adam Brouwer Berkhoven.

There are several differences between our line and that of Jacob Brewer/Anne Bogardus - they are probably distant "cousins"

Most likely Peter Brewer is a descendant of one of Adam's uncles. Check Steve Brewer's website at

or the website at

My brother is Kit #28193. There are several markers that are different from the markers for the "proven" Adam Brouwer Berkhoven line ... We seem to be most closely related to Kit #32813:

If you have any Brewer male relatives, I suggest having them tested to see where they fit in.
