Lima, was born in Rockingham County, Va., November 24, 1815, son of John and Hannah (Miller) Brower, of German descent, former a native of Pennsylvania, latter of Virginia. After the death of John Brower, his widow moved to this county, where she died in June, 1856. Our subject came to this county in 1844, settling on Section 4, German Township, on land entered by his father in about 1832, he having made a trip through this county about that time. Our subject was married, May 20, 1841, to Elizabeth Leedy, also a native of Rockingham County, Va., daughter of John and Eve (Keiser) Leedy, also of German descent, and who died in Rockiugham County, Va. Mr. aud Mrs. Brower were the parents of eleven children, seven of whom are now living: Mary C., Melissa J., Joseph M., Sarah E., David B., Lydia M. and Amanda F. Mrs. Brower dying May 7. 1874. our subject married, February 21, 1875, Lydia Miller, a native of Rockingham County, Va., and daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth (Thomas) Miller, who both died in Virginia. Mr. Brower has improved many acres of land in German Township, and has followed general farm work, but for the last ten years has given most of his time to the ministry of the gospel, to members of the old German Baptist persuasion. He was received into the German Baptist Church, with his wife, in 1845; in 1849 to the office of deacon; in 1854 to the ministry, and in 1863 to the eldership. where he has been laboring faithfully in observing the ancient order and practice of the church, laboring with his own hands, that he might not be chargeable to any, and in 1883 he took his stand with the old German Baptist Church, which, in the year 1881, had resolved to withdraw from the many innovations that had crept into the church, and fully adhere to primitive Christianity, as taught by Christ and His Apostles, in all His commands and precepts, as practiced by our f orefathers.
