The Brown's have a rich history in the Jackson, (Putnam) County area. They were God fearing people who lived humbly before God, with some being Minister's of the word of God. Most of them raised large families, and as we are researching, we discover we have a lot more work to do and have a not even started to know where this path will lead us.
Our oldest known decendent is George Brown, he is buried in Stewart Cemetery close to Cookeville, Tn., Someone has put down a Stone saying he was a Rev. War Soldier, with dates of b.Dec. 16, 1752- d. March 24, 1842. This stone does not belong there, the dates on stone belong to a George Brown who died in Illinois.
My GGGG grandfather George Brown was a Rev. war Soldier, it is written on his original tombstone, there are no dates on this tombstone. We think he would have been born between 1760-1775. He had five sons, Benjamin Brown 1787-1849, He married Susannah Richards, John Brown 1790-1858, he married Sally Carr, Andrew Brown, Andrew had a child named Wilson, George Brown, we think he died in Illinois abt. 1850, and Daniel Brown. We need to find George, so anyone who can help us, we would certainly appreciated it.
God Bless you all!
