Origins of Robert Brown and Mary Ann Reed
My Robert Brown b 1800 in PA or KY d 1853 in Livingston County, IL, interned in Phillips Cemetery just south of Streator, IL came to Marshall County (then LaSalle County) in 1837 on a riverboat from Cincinnati. His wife was Mary Ann Reed b 1808 in KY d 1899 in LaSalle County, IL. Mary Ann's obit states that they originally removed from KY but after years of effort we have not been able to find out where exactly they lived in KY. Most of what has been posted on ancestry about our Robert Brown and his father Wm Brown the Rev War Vet interned in 1841 in the Cherry Point Cemetery in Evans Twp, Marshall County I have placed there. If you are a Brown descendant and should happen to have any as yet unpublished information on our family your help would be greatly appreciated. The Brown's of Shelby County, KY with their Rev War Vet Wm Brown b 1760 in Henrico County, Va look like a perfect fit but we have not been able to prove any connections so far...
