      Jacob married Mary " Polly" SOLTS on 23 January 1816 in Washington County, TN. He died there on 10 May 1841. She was aged 58 when she filed a widow's pension application there on 29 March 1853.

      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.
