Hi John, I've exchanged email messages with you before on our Brown line. Some of the same surnames you are researching, so too am I. Yesterday I noticed a new Brown related DNA match to my Robert Brown Sr. line, on my DNA results page at Family Tree DNA.
I realize your Browns are in brownsociety.org group #29 & my Browns are in group #33, but according to my FTDNA results page, some of the same surnames you are researching, are related to my Browns. The latest match was by a Mr. Eric Fisher, who's earliest known male Fisher ancestor was Thomas Fisher[1814-1844], who married Rachel Ann Cage[b. 1822, VA.-d. 1895].
I also noticed by your previous posts on these message boards you were/are researching the Hulsey family. My Brown ancestors married into the Hulsel[Elizabeth Hulsey]family. Some of the other surname message boardsyou have posted on also have married into my Brown line, and also show up on my FTDNA results page: Martin, Phillips[many, many Phillips related to my Browns[per FTDNA-this line goes back to EZEKIEL Phillips], among others.
If you would like to see the FTDNA results page for my Robert Brown Sr. line, my kit # is 215527, & my password is 3C3311. Have you found any new information out on your Brown line?
