About Adam Brower, I

Any of the Browers who died in Jennings County are supposed to be buried in Hopewell Cemetery, but they are not listed in either of these or anywhere online. Based on the descriptions in Adam's obituary and other sources, I believe they should all be in the one in Commiskey. I am going to try and make contact with someone in Jennings County, and go down there and look when we get another warm day. PAS 12/28/2020

I have since visited both Hopewell Cemeteries and I believe the one in Commiskey is the correct location, as does the most helpful lady at the historical society. Many of the headstones are unreadable and I plan to go back down there and try some other (non-damaging) methods of reading the headstones in hopes of finding one, since they are all supposed to be located together.
