Levi H. (likely Henry) Brown is my oldest known ancestor on my mother's father's side of the family.I don't know where exactly he was born, aside from Mass, so I'm posting this in all the County pages and hoping for a bite.
Levi H. Brown was born in 1819 in Massachusetts (parents unknown) and married Mirian (maybe Mary Ann) Windle probably in Michigan bet 1860 - 1862. Marian and Levi had John )or maybe Henry W.) Brown b. 1871 which is my ancestor and Ada Cora Brown b. 1862, Michigan, d. 1940, California. John was born in Illinois.
Levi was a physician and travelled around A LOT since I find him in different places on each census. 1850 = Circleville, Pickaway, OH, 1860 = Wrightt, Hillsdale, Michigan, 1870 = Chillicothe, Peoria, Illinois.
I think Levi died between 1870 and 1880. I found his wife married to a Thomas Peer in Indiana in 1880 with Ada and John and another daughter Nerva Peer, b. 1877, so Levi likely died vef 1877.
Marian died in Golden Pond, Trigg County, KY in 1916, living at the time with his son's widow.
I see that there are other Levi Browns mentioned on this form in the Massachusetts area (earlier than 1819) so if this makes sense to anyone please get in touch with me.
