1850 census Saranac, Clinton County, NY Joseph Brown age 25 b NY Adaline age 23 b canada Joseph age 1, b NY
Joseph and Adeline were married about 1848 in NY and later had 15 children, moved to Illinois after 1856 and later (after 1870) La Porte, Indiana.
On the same 1850 Clinton Cty New York census page as Joseph and Adaline Brown and their son Joseph the family just before them is Lewis Brown, age 70, farmer, born Canada Julia, age 56 born Canada and several children born in NY. Possibly Joseph's parents or an uncle.
It is likely either Julia or Adaline are Canadian Native American although I have no info on what tribe or which of them it is I am interested in information on Lewis and Julia--birth place in Canada, Julia's maiden name and Adaline's birthplace in Canada or maiden name Other documents refer to Canada-ENG---so not French extraction or spoke English--not sure what that means. Any information helpful --this is my grandmother's family
