10 years later? I have been researching 'ole Benjamin and have figured out his past. If this is the right Ben Brown he would have married Cordilla Stewart in 1839 in Jefferson County, IN. He must have died soon after. She married to Thomas Stacker in 1848. When she was married to Benjamin, they had a son, Thomas, born in Jefferson County, 1841. I am in contact with his descendants and am researching for them.
