Elijah Brown, son of David and Roark Brown, born 9 September 1792-94 at Telford, Washington Co, TN. He is probably the Elijah Brown who was mentioned in the Cherokee Baptist Church Records in 1824:
"a motion is made for licensing brother Elijah Brown to preach " and " agree that Elijah Brown have the liberty to exercise his gift in the way his mind may be impressed." He was a Baptist Minister. He married
20 August 1814 Polly Glass, who probably died young since Elijah married her sister, Mary Elizabeth
" Betsy " Glass on 23 December 1815, both marriages in Washington County, TN. Betsy Glass born 21 April 1796, died 20 March 1867. The Reverend Elijah died 21 August 1838 in Sidney, Vermillion County, IL. Both are buried in Weaver Cemetery, Indianola, Illinois. In 1830, Elijah Brown was living in Washington County, Tennessee beside his cousin, Jeremiah Million.

A granddaughter, Alice ( Brown ) Allen, writes of the Rev. Elijah's " Elijah Brown, his wife, Mary Elizabeth, and five children were moving in a covered wagon to this country and when the vicinity of Sidney was reached, Elijah became ill. He was taken to the Knox Hotel ( which stood where the Ed Frances residence now stands ) where he died. Kind friends cut down walnut trees and made a coffin in the blacksmith shop and his body was buried east of Sidney in a wooded pasture.

The family went on to Browntown, Indiana. ( This town was name after Isaac Brown, the eldest son). Here the mother had a hard struggle to provide for her family. My father was only 9 years old and he was his mother's main support.....My grandfather worked and saved enough to buy a stone to mark my grandfather's grave". She died and is buried in Weaver Cemetery., northeast of Indianola. A search was made 78 years later for the grave of the Reverend Elijah by relatives..." The bones were well preserved and were reburied in a pine box that Ralph had made, then reburied in Weaver Cemetery."

" It is reported that Mary Elizabeth Glass's father was a soldier in the Revolutionary War and that her mother rode on horseback and delivered a very important message to the Officers. I have no proof of this , it was handed down by relatives. It was also reported that one of the great great great-grandparents was an Irish Bishop."

The Sidney, Illinois Times reported finding the grave of the Reverend Elijah Brown in the presence of the only remaining child, Mrs. Sarah Day, Dr. and Mrs. T.A. Dicks, several of the grandchildren and great grandchildren.

110 From: History of Washington County, Tennessee"

My grandfather, Jesse Brown, was an early pioneer in the Black Hills, South Dakota. He made a name
for himself as treasure coach guard and sheriff of Meade County. His picture hangs in the Pioneer Room
of the historic Museum in Deadwood, SD. He was co-author of BLACK HILLS TRAILS, published in 1924.
In this volume, he penned these words, " I was born August 24, 1844, in Washington County, Tennessee."

Jesse's roots were deep in the hills of east Tennessee. He was the son of Henderson Brown, born about
1810. In 1840, Henderson was living in the 16th District, Washington Co., adjoining Lewis Martin and Carter Tadlock. Henderson was the son of Solomon Brown, born 1779 in North Carolina. Solomon was the father of at least 15 children, and was a member of the Cherokee Babtist Church. He died, 1860 in
Greene County. The father of Solomon Brown was Jacob Brown, called the Wagonmaker, born in 1731 in
Germany. as an elderly man, Jacob moved from Rowan County, North Carolina to Washington Co., where he died in the fall of 1807. Jesse's mother was Rebecca Mullins. Her marriage, 25 January 1834 to Henderson Brown is recorded in Washington County. Rebecca was a daughter of Jesse Mullins, whose
name appears in the early tax lists and census records. He owned 160 acres of land located close to the Greene County line. Jesse Mullins was married in 1806 to Betsy Tadlock, oldest daughter of Lewis Tadlock and Charlotte Padfield. Lewis Tadlock's name first appears in the Washington County records about 1788. He owned over 500 acres of land on Lick Creek and several slaves. Lewis died in 1815, naming his wife Jane ( Blair ) in his will. Many of Lewis's descendants remained in Washington and Greene counties. One son, James Tadlock, moved to Scotland County, Missouri, in 1848. That year,
Henderson and Rebecca Mullins Brown made the same move.

Mary Bayless, born 1778 in Virginia, was the grandmother of Jesse Brown. She was married to Solomon Brown in 1797. Mary's father was Samuel Bayless, born 1751 in New Jersey. Samuel's father was Daniel Bayless, born 1716. Both Samuel and Daniel recieved land grants in Washington
County in the early 1780's. The Bayless were members of the Cherokee Babtist Church and many members of the family are buried in the church cemetery. Mary Bayless mother was Mary Nodding, daughter of William Nodding. William also recieved several land grants in the 1780's. The will of William Nodding, dated 1804, begins with a declaration of faith in the Almightly God, and expresses his belief in the resurrection of the mortal body. He also named his eight negro slaves and gave
specific directions to the exact date that each one was to be freed.

My grandfather, Jesse Brown died in South Dakota in 1932. He never had the opportunity to return to the place of his birth, but he spoke of it with affection. He was proud of his ancestors, and of his heritage in Washington County, Tennessee."

______________________________________________________________________________

Additional Information: Relatives of Margaret Robe Summitt #I445. Now explains the
relationship of " BIRD Brown".

Birth: from Fisher-Koller-Anderson ( Part #2, p.1 ) Jacob Brown, the oldest child of Jacob, the wagon
maker and his wife, Elizabeth, was b. 1752 in the area of Rowan Co., NC. According to D.A.R. records he died 10 May 1841 in Washington Co., TN. He married first Elizabeth Artmire, 29 Aug, 1774 in Rowan County, NC. Elizabeth died before 1816 and Jacob m. second Mary ( Polly ) Saltz, 23 January 1816 in Washington Co., TN. Some records state that Mary was the widow. Jacob Brown served in
the Revolutionary War. He enlised in 1777 and served three months in Capt. Frederick Fisher's company, Col. Locke's regiment. He marched against the Cherokee Indians and was in several skirmishes. He served under commissary Yarberry, in Salisbury, and was employed in making and repairing wagons, according to the Pension Record. It is very probable that he used the tools or workshop of his father, Jacob, the wagonmaster. He was in the Second Battle of Camden under Col. Reece. Jacob moved from Rowan Co., NC to Washington Cty, now TN about 1789-90 with at least
two of his brothers, George and Abraham. On the 11 day of Aug. 1791, George Brown sold 100 acres
of land on the Little Limestone to Jacob Brown. In the year 1796, the 24th of Dec., Jacob Brown, Sr.
sold to Jacob Brown, Jr. 24 1/2 acres on the Little Limestone. About 1830, a school house was built on land that was deeded to Jacob Brown, Jr.; trustees' were John Murr, Alexander Campbell and Robert
Million. Mr. Paul M Fink's " Jonesborough, the First Century of Tennessee's first Town", states that in
1863, " In the morning of September 8th, the troops met close to the Embree stone house just west of
Telford. After a brisk skirmish, the Southern forces returned to their camp at Brown's School House about two miles east." A few months before his death, an old man of almost 90 years, Jacob Brown
made his will, dated 19 February 1841. He names his children, although some of them had already
died, and he mentions grandchildren without naming them. He left to his wife Mary, his " still and tubs" along with household furniture, geese, sow and pigs. Jacob and several of his children were members of the Cherokee Baptist Church.

passengers: men-120; women and children-221; crew of 8; total 349. Stephen Braun & family after
several years went to the Carolinas ( 1742 ). They most likely traveled from Philadelphia down the Old Philadelphia Road, down the Shenandoah Valley to Roanoke. They then traveled " The Carolina Road", which is through Maggoty Gap to the Carolinas. Originating as the Great Warrior Path of the
Iroquois centuries before, the path was frequently used by the Iroquois before being ceded to the whites in 1744 to become one of the most heavily traveled roads in all Colonial America. This old road
was located about where Highway #220 North out of Greensboro towards Roanoke.

Searching for Abraham Brown's Roots
by John Burgess Fisher
Recived from Scott Brown ( 10/15/2005 ) emailed
Sent response on where did he recieve

SEARCHING FOR ABRAHAM BROWN'S ROOTS

Several years ago I happened to read a letter in which Mr. James Luther Fisher, my uncle, stated that,
if he had time before he died, he would like to search out his mother's family which traced back to
Abraham Brown. I knew that he died within a few years and didn't get to fulfill his desires. One day I
stopped by the History Room, Rowan Public Library, just to see if I could find anything on this Abraham
Brown. I first examined the " Brown Folders" in the McCubbins Files. To my delight the visit was very
rewarding. For a start I found a pamphlet entitiled, " Dr. James Seven Brown, M.D., The Country
Doctor" by Robert Bruce Camerson of High Point, NC written in 1958. This pamplet told of Abraham
Brown coming from Pennsylvania to Rowan County in the 1700's, and that he was an ancestor of Dr.
Brown. It gave the names of his children and the line of descent to Dr. Brown, as well as his children, etc. I found it to be a most helpful beginning for a research project. Shortly thereafter I read the book,
" Michael Braun of the Old Stone House " concerning some writings by the Reverend Bachman Samuel Brown concerning Abraham Brown, his ancestor. Mr. Bachman S. Brown of Kannapolis, N.C. grandson of this Reverend Brown, later told me that he would send me a copy of these writings. In about a week I recieved a visit from Bachman S. Brown. He brought me a copy of the paper entitled, " Memorabilia and Musings", by Reverend Bachman Samuel Brown, written in 1917. This paper gave the complete line of Reverend Brown back to his ancestor, Abraham Brown. In the paper Reverend
Brown stated that tradition had revealed to him over the years that Abraham Brown was brother to Michael Brown of the Old Stone House. However, he did state that he had no proof. Dr. Richard Brown in the early book of Michael Braun also had stated that it was his opinion that Abraham and Michael were brothers. These two sources gave me enough material that I could not just stop at this point. Rather I knew that I had to dig into this further and see if I could trace this family back to the place that I could prove a connection between these two early Rowan County Pioneers.

I then started a research of the counties of Pennsylvania in hopes of finding a deed, record of a passenger list, a birth record or baptism record, a tax listing, a marriage bond, or some other record of
Abraham Brown (Braun ). This was all to no avail. There appeared to be no record of Abraham Brown
( Braun) to fit my Abraham. This finally convinced me that Abraham must have either been born in
Pennsylvania or to have arrived from Germany as a small boy. I checked every book that pertained to Germans in Pennsylvania in the Rowan Public Library History Room, Davidson College Library, The University of North Carolina Library, and other sources that I could find without a trace of Abraham.
I knew without finding his roots in Germany and tracing them into this country a book would not be complete. I did find a number of books and papers that indicated the possibility that Abraham, Jacob and Michael Brown were either brothers or close kin. I constantly spent most of my lunch hours in the
History Room, Rowan Public Library, check all new books and articles that might give some clue.
Nothing appeared of any help until August,1981. My day finally arrived. The Librarian, Shirley Hoffman, told me that she had just recieved a new book concerning Pastoral Records in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania that covered the early 1700's. I couldn't wait to take a quick look at the index. There it appeared, " Abraham Braun, page 48". My hands were shaking when I turned to page 48.
There it stared at me, " Abraham Braun, a son born to Stephen Braun, March 8, 1743, baptised
April 10,1743". The name of the book was " Records of Pastoral Acts at the Lutheran and Reformed
Congregations of the Muddy Creek Church, East Cacalico Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania,
translated by William J. Hinke, and Frederick S. Weiser of the Pennsylvania German Society, Breinigsville, Pennsylvania, 1981". Dr. Weiser is the Editor of the Pennsylvania German Society paper.
I wrote to him in hopes that he had further information. I had a nice letter from him, but he didn't have any further information. I could hardly wait to consult the passenger lists. My lunch hour being up, I had to wait until the next day.

I first looked over Strassburger's Passenger Lists. There I discovered a Stephen Braun, age 37, arrived on the ship " Glasglow", September 9,1738, Walter Sterling, Commander, from Rotterdam, but last from Cowes, England, 120 passengers. There was also a Stephen Brun, age 21, that arrived on the Ship Patience, September 15, 1753. How fortunate that the ages were given. This is very unusual-
most ages are not listed. Here we have the only Stephen Braun that would fit-Stephen Braun, age 37.

Brown and Rachel his wife have letters of dismission, 2 October 1819 ( this would indicate that they were
perhaps moving to another church). John Brown was the Bondsman for his sister, Mary Brown, when she

Washington Co., TN to Wayne Co., IN in 1820. John engaged in farming until his death. The widow,
Rachel Brown, was living in Monroe Co., IN in 1830. Census records show 1 male 5-10; 1 male 10-15,

141 SOURCE NOTES FOR TOBIAS BROWN:

Tobias went to Kentucky about 1821 and wrote the Smiths to come on out. They had land grants
on the Cumberland River, where they farmed. Both Tobias and Sarah were of the Lutheran or
Reformed Faith in Rowan Cty, helped establish the Pisgah Presbyterian Church in Somerset where their children were christened.

The Smiths of Rowan Cty, NC came from the German Palatinate, probably in 1750. The Ship Phoenix,
John Mason, Captain, from Rotterdame, last from Cowes arrived at Phil, PA on August 28,1750 with 539
passengers, among them Peter Schmitt, John David Schmitt, Casper Schmitt, Casper Bruner, George
Volz, Michael, Jacob and Christopher Fisher, Jacob Frederick West, Hans Braun, Hans George Schultz,
and others who names are not in Rowan Cty, NC. This was probably the beginning of the Smith
migration. On Nov 8, 1752 the Snow Louisa with John Pittcairne as Captain, brought 50 passengers from Rotterdam, last from Cowes, to Phila , PA. Among them was George Michael Smith, who found his way to Rowan Cty, NC , near what is now Salisbury, the Cty seat.

Peter Schmidtt ( Smith ) and his son, George Michael Schmidt ( Smith ), recieved Grants ( deeds ) for land the same day, August 23rd, 1759 from the agents of John Earl Granville, the remaining Proprietor of the Carolina Grant. The lands were located on Crane Creek, near Salisbury, in Rowan Cty. Here they lived
and died, Peter Smith, Sr. in 1775, and his son George Michael Smith in 1814.

The Rowan Cty records mention these Smiths and their descendants many times. Descendants still live in Rowan Cty today and are still making contributions to the development of the Cty and State. Some have migrated to other states, notably Pulaski Cty, KY and Lawrence and Boone Cty, Indiana.

Sarah Smith was the granddaughter of Peter Smith ( Schmidtt ) Court records show that on the 18th
of May, 1819, Tobias was appointed guardian to his brother, Nathan ( orphan of Daniel Brown ), and again on the 22 November 1821 was appointed guardian by the court of the state of NC over his sister, Anna B. Brown.

In the November term of 1828, page #625 deeds, State of KY, Pulaski Cty Court session, he was appointed as follows: " Agreeable to the order of the Court of aforesaid, this indenture is made between Wm. Faro, Clerk of said Court on account of HIRAM BARNES, son of John Barnes, a poor person, now here before the court & consent of the one part and Tobias Brown of the other part witnesseth that the said Hiram Barnes is honestly & industiously to serve and obey the said Tobias
