My name is Jacob L. Bateman III or Le I live in Montgomery, Alabama. I have
been trying to find out about my father's maternal grandfather Charles
BROWN. He lived in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I think on Liberty Street. He
was born in
Pittsburgh 23 Apr 1869. I do not know who his father was, yet his eldest son
was named Charles T. BROWN. He was born and died the same year 1889. I had
been told the the family was Irish. They attended St. Augustine's Catholic
Church in Pittsburgh. They are interred at the Cemetery of this Parish. He
died in 1947. Now my father's cousin told me that they hailed from County
Cork. Yet the Little Book of Irish Clans said there were two families with
the name BROWN. The one spelled with an E. is of Anglo-Irish or
Norman-Irish descents. The one spelled BROWN is the Anglicized from of the
Scots name. The Anglo-English or Norman families are from Galway, Leinster,
Munster and I think Connacht. The Celtic Families are from Ulster. I have
been able to verify that Charles Brown's ancestors came from County Cork.
They may not even be Irish in their descent. The names of his children were
Charles T., Walter, Joseph Sr., Marcella, Ralph, Raymond, Carlotte,
and Paul. All of the children were born between 1889 and 1908 in Pittsburgh
Pa. Any help on this family or at least point me in the right direction.
Jacob L. Bateman III or Le.
