I want to add a little more to the info on Ellis F. Brown - maybe it will help jog someone's memory -
Ellis F, Brown was married to Rozilla A Bartram - her father - from what I can find - was William Bartram (b1838 Jefferson Co NY)Mother was mary Ann Hollows - from Middlefield NY - Both of them died in Hancock - he in 1926 and she in 1919. Rozilla was born 1873 and had 6 siblings - Frank E.-Wilmar - Albert - William - Kleber and Sarah who was married to Ernest Brown - Sarah died 1928 in Hancock) Ellis had lived in Hancock - Coloma - Dalton and Princeton - his children were Warren, Herbert, Leon, Florence, Walter, Norman,Irene, Marjorie and Verne.
MY QUESTION is - who were Ellis's parents and how do they connect to the other Brown's around Hancock - if he does???? David
