I also have a lot of male Brower marriages if you want them. I hope you can use some of the information. Let me know if you want me to post the male Brower marriages; I can also post the female Brower marriages, but I'll have to look them up. There is a Brower family file at the library. I can check it thoroughly to find family researchers if you also want. Let me know how I can be of further help. This is one part of the Surfaces that I haven't gotten to yet. Debbie
