Subject: [NYDELAWA] Brown family of Delaware County - not
Date: Sat, 19 May 2007 19:18:26 -0700 (PDT)
Offline I was asked if I have a connection to Delaware
County Brown family. My answer is no because Brown is
not my maiden name. However, I did a lot of research
with my former sister-in-law. "My" <direct line> of
Browns didn't settle in Delaware County that I have
found. Most of them came to Chenango, Madison, and
Cortland counties in the early 1800s from Stonington
and North Stonington, Connecticut; and Lynn,
Massachusettes and England before that.
There are two books about these Browns that I know of:
1. Brown Genealogy/Of Many of The Descendants of
Thomas, John, and Eleazer Brown/ sons of/Thomas and
Mary (Newhall) Brown of Lynn, Mass./1628-1907/ by
Cyrus Henry Brown. Boston. The Everett Press Company.
2. Vol. II Brown Genealogy, 1915. (Has parts 1 and
2). Part 1 refers to the above family and Part 2 is
"Part II/Many of the Descendants of/ Charles Browne/of
Rowley, Mass./1647-1915 by the above same author,
There is a third Brown genealogy I've seen:
Ebenezer Brown and His Descendants by Jennie Brown
Hollist, Imogene Brown and Family Representatives. Bob
Davis Publishing Co. 1979.
Of course, there must be other Brown genealogies than
Some indexes are very often surname, name indexes in
books that helps research by name.
