I have long been fascinated by Pearsall Brown, I have a Brown family of Dutchess Co in my ancestry and the name "Pearsall" has been asscoiated with them, Some time back I had a communication that mentioned this family which you might find interesting,
I will post it here without the identifiers which I can provide privately since I have no permission to do so on an open forum
All that follows came to me via an email some time back, Agnes:
Here is some more food for you.Thought you might find the names of the individuals that were witnesses ineresting! I have no clue who Asa and Valentine and Benedick Brown are?? I am guessing that they could be brother's of Filenar who died after the marriage of Pearsall and before before their father Nathaniel????
This must be Pearsall Brown's first marriage John Ireland and Philenar must have married between 1772 and 1790 Filener Brown is one of the witnesses at her brother's 1772 Marriage and she is named in her father's 1790 will as Philenar Ireland.
