I am having much the same problem you are having. I have Moses Drown [b. 21 Oct 1785, Rochester, NH] m. Mary "Polly" Glines [b. 1789, Eaton, NH] in Eaton, NH 15 Nov 1804.Both d. in Eaton NH but son Roswell Drown [b. 17 Oct 1809] m. in Orleans Co., VT to Diana Smith.Orleans & Caledonia Counties in VT share borders and the Drowns seemed to be mostly in Caledonia County.Do you suppose Moses & James are brothers?Moses & Polly had ch: Samuel, Sarah, Roswell, James, Moses, Lovina, Monroe, Abigail, Eli, John & Elijah. Sorry, I can't place your James [b. 1774]. Hope we can find a connection.
