The lineage of the Daniel Brown who was married to a Frances and who migrated from Culpeper Co., VA to Hampshire Co., VA in the late-1760s or so is as follows:
1 Francis Brown "I" (died 1691/1692 in Essex Co., VA) + Elizabeth (apparently Elizabeth Cole)
2 Francis Brown "II" (died about 1708 in Essex Co., VA) + Elizabeth Allen
Note: The above Francis Brown "II" had a brother who we call Daniel Brown "I," and Daniel Brown "I" married Jane Copeland.
3 Daniel Brown "II" (born circa-1677; died about 1747 in Culpeper Co., VA) + Elizabeth Coleman (a daughter of Robert Coleman, Junior and Ann Spilsby, and a granddaughter of Robert Coleman, Senior and Elizabeth Grizzell)
4 Daniel Brown "III" (born circa-1715; left his Will in Hampshire Co., VA in 1780) + Frances (presumably Frances Neville, but I don't know if her maiden name has actually been proven)
5 The above-referenced Will of Daniel Brown "III" mentioned the following five children: Daniel ("IV"), Thomas, Sarah, Ann and Mary.
Note: There was also a Coleman Brown who was killed by Indians in Hampshire Co., VA in 1774.It would not be very surprising if he was yet another son of Daniel Brown "III" and Frances.There were at least two other men in this overall Brown family back in Culpeper Co., VA who were also named Coleman Brown.
I see some posts on this message board about a Thomas C. Brown and an "associated" Nathaniel Brown in Hampshire Co., VA.Perhaps Thomas C. (Coleman?) Brown was the Thomas Brown who was shown as a son of Daniel Brown "III" in the above-referenced Will in 1780 (though I have seen other information on the internet that claimed that the middle initial of "C" stood for something else).No one named Nathaniel Brown, however, was mentioned in that Will.It is possible, however, that the above-mentioned Coleman Brown who was killed by Indians in 1774 could have also fathered some children of his own (but I do not know when that Nathaniel Brown was born, nor if that Coleman Brown was old enough to have been his potential father).Depending on when they were born, maybe Thomas C. Brown and Nathaniel Brown were sons of Daniel Brown "IV" and/or sons of his brother Thomas Brown.With a common name like "Brown," however, it would not be too surprising if there was more than just one overall Brown family in the area.
