Hey Marshall....Bill Davidson here.Per discussions with Gary of the Brown family that is represented by DNA "Group 33," John Brown Lawhun/Lawhorn was APPARENTLY the biological son of the Thomas C. Brown who had been in Hampshire Co., VA (and there was supposedly a Francis Asbury Brown in that family, as well).The part that is confusing to me is that I always thought that the Thomas C. Brown in Hampshire Co., VA was a member of DNA "Group 10," because it appears that he was a grandson of Daniel Brown "II" and Elizabeth Coleman of Culpeper Co., VA and a son of the Daniel Brown who married Frances Neville.Unless that Daniel Brown who married Frances Neville was not a son of Daniel Brown "II" and Elizabeth Coleman after all, something just does not seem to "add-up" here.I don't know if perhaps they have "connected" to the wrong Thomas C. Brown?
The Browns who were in Westmoreland, Fauquier and Loudoun Co., VA....who were headed by a Thomas Brown, Senior who married a Miss Thornton (and their son Thomas Brown, Junior who married a Miss Reed/Reid/Read, who was a Coleman descendant)....married into the Asbury family on more than one occasion, and I have long suspected that this Brown family was part of DNA "Group 33."You will recall that a James Brown left his Will in Culpeper Co., VA in the 1820s, and he was a proven member of DNA "Group 33"....and one of his sons was named George Coleman Brown.So....I would not be too surprised if Francis ASBURY Brown was a member of "Group 33," but I would be surprised if Thomas C. Brown of Hampshire Co., VA was a member of "Group 33."I do not know, however, if there is any real proof that the Daniel Brown who married Frances Neville was positively a member of DNA "Group 10."Maybe this recent DNA match to "Group 33" will eventually lead us to some good data on that family.
