Hi. I'm looking for information on Dennis Brown, particularly anything about his parents. He was born in 1775 in Anne Arundel, Maryland; moved to West Virginia around 1804. He was married to Rebecca Porter, also born 1775 in Anne Arundel. He died in 1840 in Marion County, West Virginia (buried at St. John's Cemetery in Basnettsville). They had ten children: 1. Eliza Brown Miller (Jesse), b. 1799 in AA; d. 1861 in Marion, WV 2. John Brown (Mary Amos), b. 1803 in AA; d. 1894 in Marion, WV 3. Mary Brown Toothman (Daniel), b. 1804; d. 1871 in Monongalia, WV 4. Dennis Brown Jr. (Elizabeth Toothman), b. 1805; d. 1887 in Marion County, WV 5. Sarah Brown Hayhurst (Andrew), b. 1809 in Monongalia, WV; d. 1858 in Marion County, WV 6.

Jesse Miller Brown (1st: Susanna Fluharty; 2nd: Keziah Cross), b. 1822 in Monongalia, WV; d. 1886 in Marion County, WV
In addition, any information on how he earned a living, how he came to own land in West Virginia, brothers and sisters, etc. Hope the list of children and spouses is of use to someone else, too. Thanks, everyone!
