Rachel Ranes m. Henry Brown ca. 1780
The marriage of Henry Brown to Rachel Ranes ca. 1780 is inferred from the death record of Hezekiah Brown, d. Jan. 20, 1875 at age 85 in Fayette co., Ohio. Hezekiah Brown lived in Marion Township, Fayette co., Ohio; he grew up in Frederick Co. Virginia. The death record lists his parents as Henry Brown and Rachel Ranes. Would like more information on this marriage and the origins of Henry Brown and Rachel Ranes. Is there a marriage record? In Virginia or another state? Ireland? Scotland?
