      Data source " Abraham Brown, The Miller " by John Burgess Fisher.

      Abraham Brown was well known as the " Miller ". His house, spring, blacksmith shop and grist mill were located behind what is now know as Dan Nicholas Park off Bringle Ferry Road on Persimmon Branch
      (N35' 38.470 W080'20:829 ) Abraham operated this mill till his death. Abraham is buried at Union Lutheran Church in Rowan County. His son, Jacob, Sr. operated the mill till his death. Abraham probably
      did not serve in the Militia due to his age. He served in Patriot Service in North Carolina during the Revolutionary War. Patriot Service means a collector of provisions, Defender of the fort, delegate to the
      Continental Congress or to a provincial congress, express rider, fence viewer, furnishing a substitute, gunsmith giving services, member of the Boston Tea Pary, minister making patriot sermons, etc. Info
      received about Patriot Service from Robert Webster, Washington State. He did research at Pugent Sound
