#26 Brown Cemetery-Additional Information

Posted on

I received an email from Marshall Brown [whynotus@comcast.net] with additional information on the #26 Brown Cemetery. We first blogged about it here: #26 Brown Cemetery

All information and images copyright Marshall Brown

He told me that John Brown’s full name was John W. Brown, the owner of Brown’s Mill.  His father, John Thomas Brown (1761-1849) was a Revolutionary War veteran (1780-81) who was born in Lunenburg County, VA, and fought under Gen Gates.  In his 1833 pension application he states that his land is worn out and while some of his children are already in Tennessee, the remainder will travel with him to resettle there.  Those children  were Grechson, Thomas, Lucretia (Weatherford), Gerusha (Pully), John W., Margaret, William R., Richard, Marthina and Nancy.  Other individuals that married his children and made the trip include the Osbornes, Weatherfords, Lowry (or Loughry) and Pully.  I wouldn’t be surprised if the unknown graves are those of John W. and his family members.
