EUGENE A. BREWSTER is a lineal descendant of Elder Brewster, of the Plymouth Pilgrims. His immediate ancestor in this county was Samuel Brewster of New Windsor, a most substantial and representative man of the Revolutionary era. He was born in New York, April 13, 1827, and was brought to Newburgh by his parents when he was three years old. He entered the office of John W. Brown in 1843, and remained with him until January, 1850, when he united in partnership with Nathan Reeve, Judge Brown’s brother-in-law, and continued under the firm of Reeve& Brewster until 1855, since which time he has been without an associate. That he has few, if any, superiors in practice in the county will be generally conceded by the profession. He has held several local stations with credit, and many rely as implicitly upon his judgment as they did upon that of his tutor, Judge Brown, some of whose habits of thought and action were deeply grafted upon his character. He married, in 1859, Anna W., daughter of Rev. John Brown, D.D.
