Chapter XXVIII, Page # 592
The old Vincennes and Ohio Falls trail passed through Posey Township, and it was along this trail the first white men located within the present borders of the county. Thomas Hopper settled a short distance north of Hardinsburg in 1803.

Thomas Polson was the first settler in the township located where the old town of Fredricksburg was mapped out. He came in 1805. Polson's cabin was only a short distance from the trail, and he was kept from getting lonesome by occasional bands of Indians, soldiers and adventurerers who passed over the trail, bound for the Falls or Ft. Vincennes.

Martin Royse and his sons John, William and Martin came early in the spring of 1806. Elijah Harriman and John Butler came into the neighborhood in 1808, Benjamin King a year later.

Could not understand the naming of Lewis: Lewis Bowles?
Found: the following biography from Orange County GENWEB ( Goodspeed Biography )

Dr. Lewis S. Bowles, was born at French Lick Springs in Orange County, December 8, 1834. He is one of three children, all sons, born to Thomas C. and Anna ( Patton) Bowles, who came from Maryland in an early day and located in Washington Co., Indiana. Thomas C. Bowles, while a young man, went South and for several years had charge of an extensive plantation. Upon his return North he settled in Orange County a short time, but soon after in Washington County; his death occured in 1840. Lewis S. began the study of medicine in 1850, with Dr. T.C. Kelso, at Livonia, in Washington, Co.
After attending a course of lectures at the University of Louisville, KY, he began the practice at French Lick Springs, which he continued for eighteen months, then went to Fredricksburg. In 1865 he located at Paoli, and the following year began doing a retail drug trade, with a stock valued at about $ 2,200. In this Dr. Bowles has been more than ordinarily, succesful, and he now has one of the most complete stocks of drugs and druggist's sundries kept in southern Indiana, and is valued at about $ 15,000. He owns about 800 acres of land, and in 1874 built the finest residence in Orange County. His marriage with Ms. Lizzie Andrews ****( here was the clue ) of Fredricksburg, Indiana was solemnized September 25, 1861, and to their union two children have been born, named William T. and James A.
He is a ardent Democrat in politics and a member of the Blue Lodge in Masonry. Dr. Bowles has made his own way in life beginning in the practice of his profession with $ 25 of borrowed capital and
he is now one of the wealthy and influential men of the county. He has been one of the School Trustees of Paoli for several years and is now a fifth owner in the Orange County Agricultural Association, of which he has been Superintendent ever since its organization in the spring of 1883.

Mary Jo Andrews named her son after her sisters husband.

Mary Leah "Polly" Andrew Horner is referred to in the Roberts Family as Mary. Her mother Mary Leah
Dillon Andrew is referred to as Leah.

A newspaper clipping found in Lillie Mae Hottel Robert's family Bible written by a " guest present " at the
Grand Golden Wedding Anniversary, 1 September 1879 of Sam Horner and Mary Leah Andrew states
that there were five persons living who attended their wedding in 1849 who also attended the golden
wedding anniversary. Brothers and sister of Mrs. Horner: the two Andrew's ( Joshua T and Thomas )
and Mrs. Sallie Andrew Ollis. The " guest present " refers to Uncle Sammy ( Samuel Horner ) and Aunt
Polly ( Mary Leah " Polly" Andrew Horner ). Family lore speculates that the " guest present " is Eliza
Horner McPheeters.

Nancy Leeg Jankowski @ leeg@thegrid.net
Jacques fled from Port des Barques, France in 1681 to England. In the summer of 1700 he came to the colonies of America. Port des Barques was in the Province of Saintonge which no longer exists. Old maps indicate the location as the southwest coast of France opposit the Ile de Oleron, on the Bay of Biscay and the Charente River. The following is a copy of his pass to England found in the bible of a great great grandson, James Bilbo, 1779/1849 Chatham County, Georgia. " By the Honorable Thomas Collier",
" Lt. Govenor and commander in Chief of his majesties castles, forts, forces and island of Jersey, sugger the bearer hereof, Jacques Bilbo, quietly to pass from hence into England, without let trouble, molestation or hindrance, he behaving himself as becometh. Given under my hand at his majesty castle England the 28th day of March 1699. Thomas Collier, to all whom these it may concern." In England, King William III was sympathetic with the plight of the Huguenots in his country so he and the protestant relief fund financed the settleing in America of a great number of them in England. Ten thousand acres of land was reserved for them in Virginia in an area abandoned by the Monean Indians. This land was located on the James River, twenty miles wet of the present city of Richmond. It was called Manakin Town for the Indian Tribe. Located in 1700 in Henrico County, it was in 1727 cut off into Goochland, then Cumberland in 1749 and finally Powhatan County in 1777. Over 500 French refugees landed at James City, Virginia in four ships, about July 1700. Jacques Billiebo was in " Ye First Shippe" which was the " Mary and Ann". Some 700 emigrants led by Marquis de la Muce landed in Virginia and started Manakintown settlement. First ship to land was the " Mary Ann" which cleared from London on April 19,1700 and arrived at Hampton, Virginia on July 23rd. From James City it was necessary for them to make their way up the James River to Manakin. From the records it was a perilous trip which many perished. James ( Jacques ) Bilbo was given two land grants, the first on March 23, 1715 containing 119 acres, the second one was on October 1,1716 for 43 acres, both were located on the south side of the James River. In 1723, his son Jean Pierre Billiebeau was living in the house with Pierre Dutoi, which indicates that his parents were probably deceased. The fact that he was taken in by the Dutoi family and later they left a tract of land to Isaac Dutoi in his will might surmise that his mother was a Dutoi. They only other record found of another Bilbo in Manakin Virginia at this time was " The 28 May 1728 was born to Jacques Billiebo a black named Jacque". I believe this was a slave and not a son, but it could be either one? The vestry book of King Williams Parish, Virginia, 1707/1750 listed a Jean Pierre Billbo and a Sara a negress.

NOTE: I believe he had a sister Jeanne who married Pierre Guerin, son of Mathurin Guerin, native of St. Nazaire, en Xaintonge who arrived on the ship " Mary and Ann". Some records are microfilmed # 850402, the National Library of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

This William King was a Member of the Convention of 1792 which formed the first Constitution of Kentucky. He was a Representative and Elector of the Senate of 1792 from his home, Nelson Co., KY
under the First Constitution. He fought at Valley Forge and at King's Mountain ( See Draper's King's Mountain and it's Heros ) and for his services he recieved 1782 acres in Jefferson County.

John Edwards King, when but nineteen years of age, fought with his brothers, Jack, William, Valentine,
and Nimrod, as a private in the Stafford County Militia, 3rd Virginia Regiment, in the Revolutionary War,
and all were discharged from the camp at Valley Forge, February 16, 1776, " to return to their homes
in Stafford county." Probably on accunt of the disturbances which the war brought about in eastern
Virginia, there was a heavy immigration westward about the year 1780. Settlements began to spring up all over the area of good lands, and there was a general exodus towards Augusta County and that vacinity.
Justice William King, having died, his widow, Elizabeth Edwards King, decided to sell her plantation and accompany her children to Augusta County. She was at that time about sixty years of age, and was still living in 1790, when she is mentioned in the will of her son Valentine King.

They did not remain long in Augusta County, for the Kentucky records show them living in Kentucky a few years later. All of the sons fought at Kings Mountain, serving under Colonel Isaac Shelby, and though John Edwards King was but twenty-three years old, he " displayed so much daring and initiative in action as to call forth the praise of his general."

matriculated at Wadham College, Oxfor, 28th April 1618; B.A. 6th July 1620, M.A. 20th April 1624.

COMMANDER ROBERT BROOKE, the emigrant ancestor of William Howard COURTENAY, the subject of this sketch, arrived in Maryland, 30th of June 1650, with his second wife Mary MAINWARING, ten children and twenty eight servants, all transported at his own cost. He was the son of Honorable Thomas BROOK
and Susan FOSTER. Commission issued to him in London the 20th September 1650, to erect a new County in Maryland, called Charles, of which he was constituted Commander; made Member of the Council the same day; Head of the Provisional Council under Cromwellian Government 29th March to 3rd July 1652, Acting Govenor, 1652. Bozeman says he was a Puritan, and Allen that he was a High Church
Protestant; certain it is that he stood high in the confidence of the CROMWELL party. His sons Baker and Thomas took the oath of fidelity to the Proprietary, 22nd July, 1650.

He settled on the Patuxent at De la Brooke. In 1652 removed to Brooke Place, adj. De la Brooke.

Virginia Prominent Families, Vol. # 1-4

That there was a close friendship between the Sovereign and the Brooke family is not only evident from the fact that the King honored his home with his presence, but the action of Cecilious Calvert in announcing Robert Brooke's intended adventure a whole year before his coming, his granting a whole county to him, and the fact that he named it Charles County, all indicate that he was near to the royal person. Robert Brooke, the third of, Thomas and Susan Brooke, of Whitechurch, England, matriculated at Wadham College, Oxford, April 28th, 1618, aged 16 years. He received the degree of Bachelor of Arts, July 6th, 1620, and that of Master of Arts four years later. At the age of twenty-five he married Mary Baker of Baute, in Sussex County, England, and had by her four children-two sons and two daughters. At the death of his first wife Robert Brooke married, in 1635, Mary Mainwaring, daughter of Roger Mainwaring, D.D., Dean of Worcester and later Bishop of St. Davids, and said to have been a noble family. By his second wife Robert Brooke had eleven children, seven of whom were sons. Ten of his children came to Maryland from England with Robert Brooke and Mary, his wife. It is, therefore, not surprising that it took a ship of his own to bring his family across the ocean.

77 Charley Talley Brown supported himself and his second family by selling chairs and other furniture that
he made from the trees found on his homestead. He made his own tools to work the wood pieces.
He would soak the wood in water to facilitate bending. He sold these chairs at Frank Bailes and
Oscar Ellis' store on Big Coon and Little Coon Creek in the valley near the Tennessee River in the
1920's. The chair making was done at his homestead on Cumberland Mountain near Hytop, Alabama
in Jackson Co.,. The wood selected for the chairs was hickory and white oak.

He was a blacksmith and had his own forge. He made his own turning lathe and tools. The lathe
was powered by a treadle and the boys were the movers on the treadle.

79 I feel sorry for my David Brown. Most of the family line has been traced except for this David. There
were four David Browns in Washington Co., TN at this time ( 1780-1833). Including David's son, David,
Jr. : I think my David was in the Revolutionary War ( see following ) and probably in the War of 1812 or
his sons were. I have alot of research to do and I really want to find my Roark as well.

East Tennessee County's Early Boundary Changes: ( 1790 and 1800 ).
Most of us have found that researching the early settlers of Tennessee can be quite perplexing. Although Tennessee didn't become a bona fide state until 1796, many of the eastern counties were formed much earlier than that date. Washington County was the first to be formed in 1777, then came Sullivan ( from Washington ) in 1779, Greene ( Washington ) in 1783, and then Hawkins was formed in 1786 from Sullivan.

History books tell us that these four counties were in the " Southwest Territory " or " Territory South of the Ohio " which was created around May 1790. By direction of the territorial govenor, militia captains took a census in July 1791, the county lines had not changed from 1790.

What does this mean to you as a researcher? Many things. The one thing is that if you find your ancestor in say Greene County in the early 1790's but in Cocke County in the early 1800's, they didn't necessarily pack up their families and move. Depending on the area of Cocke they lived in between 1790 and 1800, they could have lived in the following counties: Greene ( 1783 ) Jefferson ( 1792 ) or
Cocke (1797 ).

From Booklet provided:

DAVID BROWN was born about 1759 in Rowan County, North Carolina. He married, probably also in Rowan County, ROARK, daughter of John Roark. John Roark refers to David as " my loving son-in-law" in a 1796 Washington County, Tennessee deed of gift, giving David " one bay horse, one black mare and household furniture." David purchased land in Washington County in December of 1796 from his father, Jacob. After moving to Tennessee, David and his family settled at Telford and remained there until 1822 when he sold his farm to a nephew, Stephen Brown, and moved to Little Chuckey Creek in Greene County. It was there he died about 1833. His property was divided between his eight children.

A 1788 Rowan County Deed states, " This indenture made the 23rd day of September in the year of our Lord between Jacob Brown and Elizabeth, his wife, at the County of Rowan and State of North Carolina, Wagon Maker of one part and David Brown, son to the said Jacob and Elizabeth of the County and State aforesaid....." establishing the son ship of David. This deed is of great interest to genealogists in that it also includes the written signature of Jacob.

83 HUSBAND:
In 1760-61 Jacob purchased two tracts of land in Crane Creek, Rowan County, North Carolina from the
Earl of Granville. A portion of the land joined the land of his brother Michael Brown. Jacob had 11
children. In 1796 Jacob moved from Rowan County, North Carolina to Washington County, Tennessee.
Three of his sons George, Jacob Jr., and Abraham had settled in Washington County, Tennessee
several years earlier. Jacob purchased 235 acres of land on a branch of the Little Limestone
Creek from John Rimela on the 17th July 1796. Later that year, he sold portions of this farm to his sons Jacob, Jr. and David. As the years passed the small stream that flows from east to west through the farm became known as the Brown Branch. This farm remained in the Brown Family for nearly 150 years with the last Brown owner selling out in the 1940's.
It is presently owned by John W. Howze of Telford. An old log cabin that was located on this farm
was believed to have been Jacob's home. In January 1987, the cabin was dismantled by two of his
descendents James C. and James T. Dykes and stored for future restoration. See page 225
of " The History of Washington County, Tennessee " for the balance of the article. See page #
252 of the " Brown-Bayless-Good for more information. After moving to Washington County, TN, Jacob
began to be referred to as " wagonmaker" in deeds and other legal documents in order to distinquish
him from another, unrelated Jacob Brown who lived near the Nolichucky River. Several of Jacob
Browns children attended the Cherokee Babtist Church, a short distance south of the Brown farm;
however, it is not known whether Jacob attended services there. Many of Jacob's children, grandchildren and other descendants were blacksmiths, wagonmakers and wheelwrights.

Jacob died in November of 1807, Washington County, TN and was buried in the family cemetery on his
farm. As was the custom at that time, his grave was marked with a hand lettered piece of limestone
with the inscription: 'JACOB BROWN N 1807'. As time passed, the cemetery fell into disuse and the gravestones were broken and scattered. Jacob Brown's gravestone was " rediscovered " in 1986 by James T. Dykes, Nell Fox, and Bill Fox and was removed from the farm, with the owners permission,
for safekeeping. " submitted by James T. Dykes, 1306 W. Lynwood Circle, Johnson City, TN 37604

It is perhaps necessary to remark in closing this notice that the German word " Braun " signifies dark
or brown, and that it was pronounced in German exactly as our English word " brown". Old Michael's
and Jacobs descendants therefore discharged the German spelling and signed themselves " Brown".

Goodspeed's History of Washington County, Tennessee: Paragraph Three.
The first permanent settlement in Tennessee was made in 1769 on Boone Creek by Captain Willliam Bean, ,who came
in that year from Pittsylvania County, VA. His son, Russell Bean, is said to have been the first white child born in the State. Soon after Bean made his settlement, in 1770 and 1771, James Robertson, Landon Carter and others, laid the
foundation of the Watauga settlements, which at first were mainly in what is now Carter County. The steady stream
of emigrants from the older States, however, soon forced these to overflow into the territory now embraced in Washington and Greene counties. In 1772, Jacob Brown with one or two families from North Carolina, located upon the north bank of the Nolachucky River, which up to this time had remained undisturbed by the white man. Mr. Brown
had been a small merchant and brought with him a packhorse loaded with goods with which he soon purchased from the Indians a lease of a large body of land lying on both sides of the Nolachucky. In 1775 he obtained one deed signed by the chief men of the Cherokee Nation, embracing the greater part of the present Washington County west of the Big Limestone, and another deed forthe land lying between the Big Limestone and a line drawn from a point on the Nolachucky Mountains north 32 degrees west to the mouth of Camp Creek, thence across the river; then northwest tothe dividing ridge between Lick Creek and Watauga or Holston; thence up the dividing ridge tothe rest of the said Brown's
land. This land Mr. Brown sold to settlers at a small price. The government of North Carolina, however, refused to recognize the validity of this deed, and continued to make grants in the territory covered by that instrument.

Westward Movement
From RowanRoots by Dan Patterson ( www.rowanroots.com )

In Old Rowan County, there are still many descendants of Jacob, Michael, Abraham and Andrew Braun. As you know, these four men came into the county in the mid 1700's and obtained much land in the eastern and middle part of what is now present day Rowan County. Michael built his home in what is now Granite Quarry and Dunn's Mountain area.
Abraham ( my ancestor ) had property in the Persimmon Branch ( Dan Nicholas Park area ) and operated a Grist Mill.
Jacob had land in this general area. Michael and Abraham died in Rowan County. Jacob moved to Telford ( Washington County, Tennessee ) and died there. For the most part, Michael and Abraham families stayed in Rowan County; the move westward was originally by Jacob's family, although, members from all four families did move toward Washington County, TN and Kentucky. The man that owns part of the farm that Jacob & Enoch owned is Mr. John Howze. This Jacob, was known as the Wagonmaker. His farm and front door of this home is within yards of the Old Wagon Road. The book written and compiled by John Fischer, Dorothy Brown Koller & Margaret Brown Anderson
" Ancestors and Descendants of Abraham Braun ( The Miller ) and Jacob Braun ( the Wagonmaker ) has pictures of many parts of this farm in Telford. This book traces these families from Rowan County to Tennessee to Illinois and most parts westward. As these families moved westward, they settled in the Washington County, TN area and this movement
was also southward toward Cabarrus & Stanley County, North Carolina and toward the northeast into Orange Co., NC where there was another large German settlement. Later the movement was into the Union Co., Vermillion Co., ( southern Illinois area ). This is where many of you come into the picture. I have heard that many cemeteries in that area are filled with tombstones that show ( born in Rowan County ). If your name is not Brown, never mind. As these pioneers moved westward, they gathered wives and brothers-in-law, with a thousand other names. Adams, Alexander,

Page #27
The first arrival of Germans in Western North Carolina, in the bounds of old Rowan is believed to have taken place about
1745, though it was five years later that the great body of them came. The stream thus started continued to flow on for years, many of them arriving after the revolutionary war. They traveled with their household goods and the women and children in wagons, the men and boys walking and driving their cattle and hogs before them. They came side by side with their Scotch-Irish neighbors, sometimes settling in the same community with them, and at other times occupying alterante belts or sections of country. Thus we can trace a German stream through Guilford, Davidson, Rowan and Cabarrus counties, and just by its side a stream of Scotch-Irish. But as the years passed away, these streams, l ike the currents of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, have mingled into one, resulting in a mixed race of German-Scotch-Irish, perpetuating the virtues and perhaps also the weaknessess of all the races. Dr Bernheim, in his interesting work on German settlements in North and South Carolina, has given a list of names, found in common use in Pennsylvania and in North Carolina, such as Propst (28)Bostian, Kline, ( Cline ) Trexler, Schlongh, Seitz (Sides ), Rheinhardt , Biber ( Beaver ), Kohlman ( Coleman ), Derr (Dry ), Berger ( Barrier ), Behringer ( Barringer ),. To this list may be added other names familiar in Rowan County such as Bernhardt, Keilig, Meisenheimer, Beard, Mull, Rintelman(Rendleman ), Layrie ( Lyerly), Kuhn ( Coon ), Friese, Eisenhauer, Yost, Overcash, Boger, Suther, Winecoff, Cress, Walcher, Harkey, Savitz, Henkel, Moser, Braun ( Brown ) and many others familiar to all our people

From the booklet compiled by Scott R. Brown and Dale E. Heber based on material from
The Ancestors and Descendants of Abraham ( Braun) Brown the Miller
The Ancestors and Descendants of Jacob ( Braun ) Brown the Wagonmaker
by John Burgess Fisher, Dorothy Brown Koller and Margaret Brown Anderson.

Why Stephen?

To search and to establish our Brown ancestral line was the goal of this research and the hope was always to be able to identify the immigrant-that particular link in the ancestral chain which would signify the beginnings in this country and the severing of the ties to the Old Country. The search led to Jacob Brown ( Braun ) the Waggonmaker, who died in Washington County, Tennessee in 1808. From the Revolutionary War Pension record of his son Jacob, Jr. the trail led to Rowan County, North Carolina.

Contact with the North Carolina State Library, History and Archives Division in Raleigh, produced several genealogical clues. Important among them were copies of pages from the book, " Michael Braun ( Brown) of the Old Stone House", pages in which Jacob Brown's name appeared. The possible brotherhood of Jacob, Michael and of a younger Abraham, was mentioned. Included also were the excerpts from " Rowan County, North Carolina Deed Abstracts", by jo White Linn. They revealed that in July of 1760, Jacob Brown bought 392 acres of land from the Earl of Granville, and that a year later he sold 196 acres of this same property to a Stephen Brown. The name of Stephen had already come to our attention in Washington County records--a Stephen Brown who married Betsy Tucker in 1811 with Abraham Brown as bondsman.

We felt sure that Jacob was of German descent because five German books were listed among the inventory of his estate. He had to have immigrated from Germany before 1752 as his oldest son, Jacob, Jr. was born in Rowan County then, according to the records of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. This would establish a possible birth date for Jacob at about 1730.

An answer to two questions were needed. The first involved the name of Jacob's father. This became of prime importance after an intensive research in two volumes of " Pennsylvania German Pioneers" by Strassburger revealed that none of the Jacob Browns on the immigrant list was Jacob, the Wagonmaker. Of the four Jacob Browns(Brauns ) ; on the immigrant listings, three of them arrived to late, disembarking at the Port of Philadelphia in 1752,1753, and 1754. The one Jacob who arrived in 1749 was eliminated because he signed his name with an "X" whereas the Wagonmaker wrote his name on official documents. Therefore, Jacob must have immigrated as a child with his father. In this case, probably only his father would have been listed by the ship's Captains as they compiled with the regulations of the Colony of Pennsylvania. So it was that the name of Jacob's father became very important. The first question brought attention to the second question-what was the relationship between Jacob and Stephen?

Jo White Linn's " Abstract of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions of Rowan County, North Carolina"
states that on 14 January 1763, a Mr. Dunn ordered that Eve and Jacob Brown have letters of Administration on the Estate of Stephen Brown. The order of placement of the names-Eve's before Jacob's ( according to Judge Garland D. Anderson, husband of Margaret Brown Anderson) indicated that Eve had precedence over Jacob and was likely to be Stephen's widow. Jacob was probably the next-in-line of kinship, very likely Stephen's oldest son although there was a possibility that Jacob could have been the younger brother of Stephen, had Stephen had no surviving children.

Returning to the arrival time of the early Brown's into the port of Philadelphia from Germany, it was noted that a Stephen Braun arrived on the ship " Glasglow" on the 9 September 1738. He was 37 years old. This Stephen was born about 1701, a realistic date to be the father of Jacob. From another source, " Pennsylvania German Immigrants" by Don Yoder, it was noted that a Stephen Braun from Ruschberg, Germany left for Carolina in 1738.

This made a link of Stephen-Jacob-Carolina-Germany which prompted us to consult the necessary Gazetters so that a microfilm of Ruschberg's vital records could be obtained from the Genealogical Library of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Salt Lake City, Utah. Two microfilms were available listing marriages, births and deaths in Ruschberg-one of the Evangelical Lutheran Church and one of the Reformed Lutheran Church. Pure instinct decided the ordering of the Evangelical Church listing first.

When it arrived, the names of not only Stephen ( written Steffe Brun ) but also a Johan Jakob in 1731 and a Johan Michel in 1732 were evident even though we could not read the entire Old German Script. Prints were made of these two Baptism records. They were later sent to a translator, Hildegard Geltmeyer, who specializes in genealogical and " old script " German records.

Her translation confirmed the birth of Johan Jacob and Johan Michel to their father. Stephen Braun and established to our satisfaction not only the fatherhood of Stephen but also the brotherhood of Michael and Jacob.

Because the results of this research involved Michael Brown as well as Jacob, the data was sent to Mr. John Fischer who was involved with research for the parentage of not only Michael and Jacob but also of his brother Abraham Brown. He contributed the records of the Muddy Creek Evangelical Lutheran/
Reformed Church in Cocalico Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, showing the birth of Abraham, to a Stephen Brown, said to be the Stephen who had arrived on the ship Glasgow in 1738.

This has been the advent of joint research by the descendants of Jacob, Michael and Abraham. For more evidence about Stephen Brown after he arrived in this country, Mr. Paul Brown Fry pursued the research of records in Lancaster County, PA. Mr. John Fischer, in November of 1981, wrote a letter to the Mayor of Ruschberg, West Germany, asking for information on the family of Stephen Braun.

After six long months Mr. Fischer recieved an answer from Ruschberg which was well worth waiting for. It confirmed our known data and added more. A full fext of this letter is included elsewhere.

The hope then, to discover the immigrant ancestor has more than been fulfilled by finding not only Stephen Christian Braun, but additional lineage of both him and his wife, Maria Eva Hamen, in Ruschberg, and the development of a bond of friendship between the multitude of American descendants.

Memories from Willie Edna Stallings:
Known as L.E., he was 6 feet tall, stood straight and walked with a definite spring in his step, no one
could keep up with him walking down the road.
Willie was short, she could stand under his outstretched arms when they were married.

His parents parted ways when he was very young, since he was the oldest he seemed to take
responsibility for the welfare of the family. He went to work for the Southern Railroad, first. His
mother had to sign a work release for him. He soon transferred to the N.S. & State L System and
remained in their employment until his early retirement in 1969.

L.E. was a very hard working man. He had to leave school in the 8th grade, but loved learning.
He took home courses in math and electricity. He educated himself in carpentry, electricity, plumbing, and home repair. He was in demand on weekends when he was home, ( had to stay
away from home on the week days ), by the home owners of Stevenson to do repairs, paper
hanging and painting. He always had something to do and could do anything. He did not have
to hire anyone to do work for him. He worked his way up to Foreman of the railroad crews that
built bridges, causeways, culverts and railroad beds for N.C. & St L ( later changed to L& N railroad).
He was the crane operator, was very good at driving pilings. He really enjoyed his association with
people from Chattanooga to Nashville. Met some great people and they were nice to him. He did
not want to retire, but had to on account of his health. He was a patient in the hospital many, many
times and I can remember 30 times at least. He had several surgeries, but would alway bounce back
and get to work as soon as possible. It seemed like if anything happened to him it was the worst in
the world. He had back surgery and phelibitis set in in his leg. The doctors where a while finding out what was wrong. He would often say, " My big toe is killing me". Sure enough it was the
infection that made his toe hurt. He thought the doctors did not care about how bad he hurt.

One thing that really remains awesome to me is how much he cared for his Grandpa and Grandma
Guinn. They were good to him and he never forgot it. His mind left him right before he died, but
he remembered them. He loved his relatives, Walter Lee Brown was someone he really cherished
and he always talked about him with me. He never got over his dad leaving his family. It made me
so sad to hear him say, " I don't know why he left us children". He loved children, but he didn't
know how to be a tender father. He was loud and gruff and when he whistled we scattered like
a covey of birds, when we were kids.

The stamina and drive that he had to work was passed on to his children. Were all work nuts.
During the depression, when he was laid off by the railroad he would work for the farmers in the
fields for a $1.00 a day to buy food. He always looked after his brothers and sisters as best he could.

I remember his prediction about the economy, which I passed off lightly until it became a reality
When Mead Corporation and H.D. Lee Company moved here ( the Stevenson area ), he said they
would only use our resources and tax credits, then move on. H.D. Lee Company is gone, but the
Mead Company is still here. I don't know for how long though. When H.D. Lee Company shut down, dad's words rang in my ears, afresh and anew. I miss him!

93 Page XXVIII from The Ancestors and Descendents:

A great deal of work has been done to try to find traces of other children of Stephen Christian Brown
in Pennsylvania. Since families in that day stayed very much together, it is believed that they all came to
Rowan County. It is difficult to locate women in the 1700's. Women occupied such a secondary role in
the family and public life that rarely are their names recorded. Church records reveal very little. It is believed by several of us that Anna Christiana, daughter of Stephen Brown, married John Getchey ( Ketchie ) for the following reasons:
1. In the McCubbins Paper, Rowan Co. Library, a page, headed by name, Jacob Brown contains the
following: Will of Christiana Getchen, Book B, Page #48, dated 8 March 1790. Sons John and Frederick-Wit. " Michael Brown, Jr. and John Strange.
2. Deed Book 4:664-66, Jacob Brown and his wife Elizabeth release to John Gilichi (?) 134 acres, 22 Jan. 1762 ( this is a part of a tract of land Jacob Brown bough in 1761-479 acres. ( It is noted that Jacob
Brown regularly deed his land to members of his family).
3. In the 1758-59 Tax List of Rowan County, NC John Gilcha's name is listed directly below the three
Brown's ( Michol, Steven and Jacob ).
4. In 1732 baptism record of Johnn Michael Braun, son of Stephen gives Johannes Goettge as on of
the Godparents. All from Ruschberg, Germany.
5. " Pennsylvania German Immigrants " by Yoder, page #321, Johannis Goettgen of Ruschberg leaves with wife and six children for the Americas. ( The John who married Christiana was probably one of these children ) 1751.
6. " Pennsylvania German Pioneers" by Strassburger- Ship Edinburgh, Sept 16, 1751--Johannes
Gottgen.
7. Abstract of Minutes of Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions, Rowan Co., N.C. one of the Executors.
Book A, page #172, 9 May 1777. Christiana Getchy summoned to next court, being widow of John
Getchey, decd, to see if she has disposed of part of the said estate, contrary to Law, she to give account.
8. John Gitshaue made oath in court that he was one of the chain bearers when the land of Jacob
Brown, formerly of Rowan County, was first surveryed.
9. John Getchey and Michael Brown, Jr. witnessed the will of Barbara Bruner.
