Her father, W.E. Lips witnessed the event. Brower was born April 24, 1848 in Hanover, Prussia, and immigrated to America in 1849 at the age of one year. At the time of the 1880 census, Brower and Libbie had a seven month old daughter, Ladora. They lived with Brower's mother, Deepke Broers, and his older brother, Peter (October 19, 1845 to March 6, 1901) Brother Brower and Peter were farmers.
      In 1900 Libbie and Brower had five children: "Dora, born in September 1879; Owen, born August 1881; Laura, born December 1884; Martin, born April 1888; and John born April 1890. Brower was listed in this record as a "tank builder." Dora, aged 20 at the time was a music teacher.
