Hey Cyndy, I'm not sure about the connection, but I'll check it out. I don't live in Buffalo, I live in FL. If I did live in Buffalo, I'd definately be a snowbird! I'm sure all the people at the genealogy societies, the libraries and court houses would be out waving bye to me in the fall b/c I would bug them to death all summer!

I just posted a video on my Brown ancestor's cemetery in Locust Grove, Henry County, Georgia. Her name is Atha Brown Sandifer.

To view it go to my blog at: "keeper of the records dot blogspot dot com".

Robbyn, I have a 4 Gr Grandfather, Archibald Brown, who immigrated from Scotland (not sure where or when) and married Martha McMullen/McMillan from Argyleshire, Scotland and lived in Buffalo, NY. I know Brown is a common name, but maybe there is a connection. They were married at the Scottish Reform Church in Buffalo in 1851. They had 3 sons: Hugh, born in 1855, Neil, born in 1858, and Archibald (jr?) born in 1859. I only have info on children of Archibald and none of them are Spencer. All of the brothers died after 1900. If any of this makes sense or you want more info, contact me. I'm happy to share what I can! Do you live in the Buffalo area? I don't, I'm in AZ, but go back every once in awhile.

I have several lines of Brown, although I have not proved a few of them, and they are older lines.

Margaret Elizabeth Brown (1834 TN-1866 MO), daughter of Squire Brown (1795SC-MO), and Elizabeth Williams (OF Coffee Co., TN to Missouri). She married William Smith, and died young in Phelps Co., Missouri.

Elizabeth Brown married Benjamin Meader/Meadows, a minister, of Bedford Co., Virginia c1800, migrated to Barren Co., Kentucky in 1850 census, living next to her daughter, Edna Thornhill. There is an indication Elizabeth may be related to Daniel Brown of 1700's Guilford Co., NC. Edna, was confused about her birthplace, so they may have lived in different places, although Bedford Virginia seemed to have been home.

My Browns are from the Hemmingford area and my greatgrandfather married Marietta (Henrietta) Tallman. Looking for any further info that anyone would have on them.

My father Thomas Crawford Brown came from Belfast, Ireland in 1920 to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. He was only 14 years old and got a job with the Canadian Pacific Railway by saying he was 16 years old. One family story says he added the e on Brown because his father already worked for the CPR and they had a rule that they did not hire relatives. Another story states that when he was called in for work they could not find his name in the Winnipeg phone book because of all the Browns listed. Adding the e made it fast and easy to reach him. Regardless of the reason I grew up with Browne. When my dad retired he had completed 51 years of service with the CPR.

I hope someone can help me. I'm looking for information on Esther Brown. she married Phillip Sylor. I have one child listed: Esther Margaret Sylor. Esther Margaret was born 1786 in Augusta, Virginia and died Aug 22, 1860 in Lee County, Virginia. This is all I have on this family.

John Reeve + Hannah BROWN =
Abigail Reeve + Thomas Dickerson (m. 1712 or 1715) =
Thomas Dickerson + Sara Wager (m. 1737)

Well you don't need to see all the rest. Does anyone have any information on my Hannah BROWN??

Thanks :-)
