Only verbal and from notes from my paternal grandmother Willa Augusta Rusmisel. Barbara, born in 1740 survived birth, but her mother, Eva Christina Bauman -975 (aka Eva Bowman) perished. Thus Barbara's father, Christian Brower-415, then age 25 was a widower with an infant baby girl. { I suspect that a close neighbor and later his sister-in-law, Catherin Eve Brennemann-17 and even later his second wife helped with the care of the infant Barbara. } So when in 1749 when the first husband of Catherin Eve Brennemann-17 died and thus leaving Catherin a widow with two small children, it was a logical plan to marry thus joining the two families. Barbara of this profile retained her birth name: Brower. It should be pointed out that the first husband of Catherin was Johann Jacob Bauman-976 who anglicized his name to John Bowman. He and Eva Bauman were siblings. Johann or John Bowman and Catherin had two chldren: John Jr. and Mary. John Jr. assumed the last name of his step father Christian Brower and was later known only as John Brower Jr. Brower-727.
