Abraham Brower b 1787 m Mary Ochs

I'm hoping someone may have some information about a Brower family who lived in Lebanon County in the early 1800s.

Purportedly, Abraham Brower was born about 1787 in Lancaster, the son of a Revolutionary War veteran. Around 1808, he married Mary Ochs, who may have been born in Germantown near Philadelphia.

At least two sons, Jacob and Henry, were born in Lancaster prior to about 1820. After that, additional children were born in Lebanon County. I assume that the family did not move; rather, that they lived in the area that become Lebanon in 1813.

The family moved to Dauphin County in the 1830s, where Mary died. Then the family moved to Elkhart, Indiana in the late 1840s. Abraham died in Kosciusko County, Indiana, in 1871.

I have lots of information about Abraham's descendants, but not much regarding the vitals for either he or Mary, and I have absolutely nothing about their parents (save the Revolutionary War reference, and the DAR indexes haven't helped with that).

Any information at all would be most appreciated. Thanks!
