William BROWN (died at 55) in 1812 m Elizabeth PRETTYMAN (b 1792-1801 d age 90), both natives of Delaware, d/o John and Nancy Ann (MILLS) PRETTYMAN.Their children are: Daniel, William, Mary, Eliza J, John, Charles, Joseph, Matilda, Sarah, and Jacob BROWN b2 Apr 1833 near Bridgeville, Sussex, DE m Martha Jane CASSEL d/o William and Nancy (RUNNELS) CASSEL.I have more on descendants of Jacob, but I am searching for connection to ancestors.
On the 1880 Seaford, Sussex, DE Census T9-0118 p729D I found two families that look promising:
William P BROWN 61 (1819) DEHucksterDE DE MargaretWife 58 (1822) DEDE DE Martinson19 (1861) DESexton Annie BROWN dau 15 (1865) DE William D KINSEY Gson 17 (1863) DE Eliza BROWN widowed mother 85 (1795) DEDE DE Is this the same William, son of William & Eliza?
Next door (Is the the son of William above?) George W BROWN37 (1843) DE Oyster Packer DE DE Roseniawife34 (1846) DEDE DE George L BROWN6 (1874) DE Laura3 (1877) DE Rosa9mo (1880) DE Matilda FLOWER Widowed Mother 54 (1826) DE DE DE Erma BRADLEY other 12 (1868) Black Nurse

In Jacob BROWN's history he moved to Ohio @9yrs old, grew up on a farm, at 18 Crawforsville, Indiana then Vermilion Co, Illinois during Civil War (Danville Co I), 1869 came to Labette Co, Kansas later Parsons then McCune,Crawford,KS.
I am assuming some of William and Eliza(beth) BROWN's children were married and didn't move to Ohio.Does anyone recognize my family and know when the older children were born or who they married?Thanks for your help, (Debbie) firstname.lastname@example.org
