Shortly after arriving in Oregon, he married the widow of Elijah JAMES, Nancy READ JAMES who had at least three JAMES children from her first marriage. (JW- a male, David, and MJ- a female).
According to Census info, they lived in Jackson Prct of Polk County, OR in 1860; and in Sheridan Precinct of Yamhill County, OR in 1870 and 1880.
James H BROWN and Nancy had 5 children, Elizabeth (~1853), Emily (~1856), Thomas (~1859), William (~1861), and Hank (9 Mar 1864).
I'm looking for descendents of these children, as well as more info about James H BROWN prior to his arrival in OR around Oct of 1852.
