I thought this might be a good time to post what I have compiled now, so far
on the Joshua Brown that married Hannah Gatchell, and their son Joshua Brown
that married Sarah Balderston Ely. It is quite long so I hope it will
all go thru to the list. I have lots more on this group of family also.

Co, MD to Caleb (female) Pierpoint of Elk Ridge Meeting in Anne Arundel Co,

--------Lancaster cnty, PA Wills, BROWN, JOSHUA, Wife. Zillah Brown.
Children: Elisha, Patience, Jeremiah, Isaak, Mary, Samuel and Lydy.

Ex. Zillah Brown. Little Britton Twp. - The will of Joshua Brown Sr. of
Little brittain in Lancaster Co, Pa. who was married to 1)Hannah Gatchell
and married 2) Zillah Walker is dated Jun 10, 1799. It lists his wife as
'Zillah'. He lists his children: Joshua, Elisha, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Samuel,
and daughters Patience Morrison, Lydy, Tillah, & Mary King who married
Vincent King. He leaves his mansion & Plantation to son Joshua Brown Jr.
This list of names also coincides with the Rev. War Militia Lists for
Lancaster County also.

------- "History of Lancaster County" by Franklin Ellis & Sam. Evans
published in 1883, on page 861, there is a long article about Judge Jeremiah
Brown. It says he married Mary Cole (a widow) of Nottingham. Their children
were: Patience, JEREMIAH, JOSHUA and Isaac. It says "Joshua was born Mar 5,
1717. He married Hannah Gatchel in 1736 and 10 of their children grew to
manhood. In 1758 he purchased 500 acres in Little Britain now Fulton Twp.
(The book was written in 1883, and it states that Jeremiah's descendant
Slater F. Brown of the 4th generation, now occupies that land). It states
Joshua Brown was a minister for Society of Friends and traveled to Virginia,
& North Carolina preaching to friends. He died October 1798 in the 82nd yr
of his age. Of his children 4 settled & remained in that area. They were:
Mary married Vincent King, Jeremiah, Isaiah and Joshua. Joshua Jr. the
youngest son, died in the year 1823 on the mansion farm, leaving no
children. And from what I gather, is the one many have used for DAR and
other organizations to join as the Joshua Brown in Huntingdon Co that died
in 1832.) Joshua's brother Jeremiah purchased his father's mills and a
portion of the farm. Jeremiahs sons were: Levi, Jeremiah and Slater." (This
accounts for the names Jeremiah Jr. and Slater Brown in the Will mentioned
above).

-------1790 Census for Penn. under Lancaster County, Little Britain Twp.
lists Jeremiah Brown, Joshua, Isaih, Joshua Brown Jr. etc. , these names
listed in Lancaster County again coincide with the names of the Wills and
Quaker records listed above.

------*2nd Wife of Joshua Brown: Zillah (Maule) Walker m: Aft. 1760 in
Little Brittain, Lancaster Co (this information came from Sheppard Book
titled "Sheppard-Marshall and Allied Families"/Lillian A. Sheppard,
PUBLICATION: 1974. After Thomas Maule died, Zillah (Walker) Maule married
(Sept. 10, 1767, at Radnor, Pa.) Joshua Brown of Little Britain Twp.,
Lancaster Co., Pa, by whom she had two children, Lydia and Israel. (Lydia
married Merrick Embree and their descendants are numerous in Pennsylvania
and elsewhere.) Joshua Brown, a renowned minister of the Religious Society
of Friends, was an abolitionist and a temperance advocate; he made quite an
impression on the young Maule boys. It is believed Zillah met Joshua when he
was on one of his journeys as a Friends minister and was staying at the home
of Daniel Walker. Thomas Maule's will was quite unusual, because in it he
left his property, including the farm, to Zillah and his children in equal
shares, rather than to the oldest child. After Zillah married Joshua Brown,
she and the Maule boys moved to Little Britain Twp., Lancaster Co., Pa. The
Radnor farm was rented until all the children attained legal age. Rec. of
Radnor MM & Phila. MM.









2) In the Quaker minutes of Meetings of Friends (Quakers) (I have copies of
these minutes) 'New Garden Monthly Meeting, PA Births & Deaths' and Little
Brittain Monthly meeting minutes and MM from Cecil, Maryland, shows:

A) Jeremiah Brown married Mary Coale, they had a son

B) Joshua Brown b.March 5, 1717 m/ Hannah Gatchell had several children.
Some of their sons were:

C1) Jeremiah Brown b.1750 d.7-7-1831 m/Hannah England. Jeremiah & Hannah had
sons: Slater b.1787, Levi b.1776, & Jeremiah Jr. b.1785.

C2) Elisha b.1737 m/Rachel Littler. Elisha & Rachel had a son Joshua Brown
b.1762, d.2-24-1831 who married Debra Taylor.

C3) Joshua Brown b.1745 (d. 22 Jan 1760, I have not actually seen the death
date on this yet, but I have seen reference to it); she was probably
pregnant and decided to name the new son...

C4) Joshua Brown b. 2-17-1760, d.8-18-1823 married Sarah ? . They had no
children. (see his Will below Item #3).

relict (widow) of Hugh Ely.

------"Quaker records of Northern Maryland 1716-1800"/Peden, pg 122 -
Witnesses at Duck Creek Meeting in 1791 - Joshua Brown, Hugh Ely, Sarah Ely.
This is probably how they met and after Hugh died, he married Sarah Ely; He
also witnessed a wedding on Nov 3, 1791 there (same page).

------The will of Joshua Brown Sr. of Little brittain in Lancaster Co, Pa.
who was married to 1)Hannah Gatchell and married 2)Zillah Walker is dated
Jun 10, 1799. It lists his wife as 'Zillah'. He lists his children: Joshua,
Elisha, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Samuel, and daughters Patience Morrison, Lydy,
Tillah, & Mary King who married Vincent King. He leaves his mansion &
Plantation to son Joshua Brown Jr. This list of names also coincides with
the Rev. War Militia Lists for Lancaster County also.

-------In the Quaker minutes of Meetings of Friends (Quakers) (I have copies
of these minutes) 'New Garden Monthly Meeting, PA Births & Deaths' and
Little Brittain Monthly meeting minutes and MM from Cecil, Maryland, shows:

A) Jeremiah Brown married Mary Coale, they had a son

B) Joshua Brown b.March 5, 1717 m/ Hannah Gatchell had several children.
Some of their sons were:

C1) Jeremiah Brown b.1750 d.7-7-1831 m/Hannah England. Jeremiah & Hannah had
sons: Slater b.1787, Levi b.1776, & Jeremiah Jr. b.1785.

C2) Elisha b.1737 m/Rachel Littler. Elisha & Rachel had a son Joshua Brown
b.1762, d.2-24-1831 who married Debra Taylor.

C3) Joshua Brown b.1745 (d. 22 Jan 1760, I have not actually seen the death
date on this yet, but I have seen reference to it); she was probably
pregnant and decided to name the new son...

C4) Joshua Brown b. 2-17-1760, d.8-18-1823 married Sarah ? . They had no
children. (see his Will below).

------Will of Joshua Brown Jr. of Little Britain dated Aug 18, 1823.
Mentions his wife Sarah. He had no children. He left everything to Isaac
Rushes children. Executor was his nephew Jeremiah Brown Jr. Witnesses were:
Jeremiah Brown, Wm. Brown, and Slater Brown another nephew.. ( According to
the Quaker records which I have viewed and are accessible at several places
on the internet, both Jeremiah Jr., and Slater Brown are definitely children
of Jeremiah Brown Sr. who is brother to Joshua Brown Jr., and both Jeremiah
and Joshua are proven to both be sons of Joshua Brown and Hannah Gatchell.)
So this proves this could not be the Joshua Brown that moved to Huntingdon
Co, Penn and died there in November of 1832.

------- "History of Lancaster County" by Franklin Ellis & Sam. Evans
published in 1883, on page 861, there is a long article about Judge Jeremiah
