Jeff, you may indeed reply to me privately. Since I can't seem to find your email address in your posting, I assume you don't know mine. It is < firstname.lastname@example.org >.
The information you related on Laverda Adams, Esther Jane Brown and Benjamin Wilson Brown is all familiar. I even have your GG grandfather, Noah W., along with his wife, Sally Ann Holly, three children and a couple of grrand chilren, the children of Susan E. Brown and George Cooper.
I do have the parents and grandparents of Benjamin W. and Noah W,, including the female ancestry but the Borwns continue to elude me.
So do email me privately. Maybe we can each benefit from each other's information.
