The updating of the numbering system used on this page has been completed. Generation 28 is my own;
27 is that of my parents; 29 is that of my children, etc.  --   John M. Gwin, May 2009


The reformatting of the name font and census data for this page has NOT been completed. --John M. Gwin, Nov 2011


When our son Jeremy married Kara Douglas in 2006, we knew this page would soon be forthcoming.  Charity had married Beau, and the Pihlaja page became part of the tree. Sarah had married Jason, and off we went with the branch for the Johnsons.  So when Sharon and I went to Albuquerque for a visit with Jeremy and Kara in March 2007, who was I to put off the inevitable?  And so, readers...


...we are delighted to present to you our growing Gwin/Douglas connection!  Jeremy is a civil engineer, P.E., with a master's in Architectural Landscaping, who has also served as a school teacher in the content areas of math, computer skills, and filmmaking.  Dr. Kara Gwin is now an OB/GYN in Albuquerque, NM, and together they have become the parents of our seventh grandchild, Adrianna Rose Gwin.
--John M. Gwin --

Whew!
The original page was getting to be a real monster--we had over 2.5 megs of data stored there!
So in December 2011, we split it into its two parts:


Gordon's Ancestors

Private HARVEY S. BROWN, Co. B & Co. C, 86th Illinois
        Harvey S. Brown was born on July 4, 1838 in Pittstown or Troy in Rensselaer County, New York, the son of Royal H. Brown and Alida (Potter) Brown.   Royal was born on September 8, 1813 to John Brown and Polly (Spaulding) Brown.  John Brown was born in Heath, Massachusetts on July 18, 1771 to John Brown and Lucy (Rugg) Brown. John and Polly (Spaulding) Brown had 4 children. John passed away on March 3, 1833 in Raymertown, New York and his earthly remains were laid in the Hillside Cemetery in Pittstown, Rensselaer County, New York.
Royal H. Brown was married to Alida Potter on __________ __, 183__ at __________, New York. Alida was born on March 2, 1815 in __________, New York, the daughter of __________ Potter and __________ (__________) Potter.
        At the time of the 1850 census, the Brown family is found in Watson Township of Lewis County, New York;
Royal H Brown M 37 New York Olida Brown F 36 New York John Brown M 13 New York Harvey Brown M 12 New York William Brown M 10 New York Sidney Brown M 2 New York Orson Eldria M 32 New York;
        About 1856, at the age of 18, Harvey S. Brown apparently struck out on his own moving west to Wisconsin, where he settled in Albion, Wisconsin. There he attended the Academy. He remained there for two years. In 1858 he moved to Illinois where he settled in Peoria County near West Hallock, Illinois.  In the 1860 census of Peoria County, Harvey Brown cannot be definitively located. There is a Henry Brown, age 21, born in New York, working as a farmhand on the farm of Bartholomew and Cornelia Noyes in Elmwood Township in Peoria County, but, this is as close to the correct information that I can find.
        At the time of the 1860 census, the rest of the Brown family are still found in Watson, Lewis County, New York;
Royal H Brown 46 New York;  Alida Brown 45 New York;  Sidney S Brown 12 New York;  Clark L Brown 8 New York
        In the early 1860's, the Brown family came west to Illinois to join Harvey here in Peoria County. They, too, settled in the West Hallock area of Peoria County. Royal H. Brown died on Oct. 23, 1862 and his mortal remains were laid in the West Hallock Cemetery in Peoria County.
        At the time of the 1870 census, Aleda is found residing with her son, Harvey S. Brown, and his family in Akron Township of Peoria County, Illinois;
Harvey S Brown M 32y Farmer 5,000 700 New York Rosa A Brown F 26y New York Ella Brown F 3m Illinois Aleda Brown F 55y New York William Potter M 13y New York;
        At the time of the 1880 census, Aleda Brown is found residing with Lucretia Green in Hallock Township in Peoria County, Illinois. Aleda is listed as Widowed and is working as a House Keeper. Her father is listed as having been born in Rhode Island, while her mother is listed as having been born in Connecticut;
Self Lucretia Green F 88 New York;  Other Alida Brown F 65 New York
        Alida died on Mar. 10, 1891, and her mortal remains were also laid in the West Hallock Cemetery.

Now to continue with the biography of Harvey S. Brown.

        On August 13, 1862, Harvey S. Brown went to Marshall County, probably Henry, Illinois where he volunteered to serve in a company which was being raised in the Henry, Illinois area of Marshall County, by a man by the name of Elias C. Brearley for service in the Union army. At the time he volunteered he listed Akron Township of Peoria County as his place of residence.

        When Brearley had about 100 volunteers, he led the Marshall County company into Peoria where they went into camp at Camp Lyon, near present day Glen Oak Park.  On August 27, 1862, Brearley and 88 of his volunteers, including now Private Harvey S. Brown, were mustered into service as Co. B of the 86th Regiment of Illinois Volunteer Infantry.  Brearley was elected Captain of Co. B.
        On September 7, 1862, the men of the 86th Illinois marched out the gates of Camp Lyon, through the streets of Peoria, with much fanfare, down to the railroad depot. There they were joined by the men of the 85th Illinois, who had been mustered into service at Camp Peoria. There at the depot, the men of the 85th & 86th Illinois boarded trains bound for Camp Joe Holt in Jeffersonville, Indiana, which was located across the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky.
        The trains carrying the men of the 85th and 86th arrived at Jeffersonville, Indiana on the morning of September 9th, and the men of the regiments began to drill almost immediately.  On September 10th, Privates Harvey S. Brown, Ansel Crouch and ____  ____ were transferred from Co. B of the 86th to Co. C of the 86th, most likely at their request, because Co. C was full of men recruited from the Chillicothe area, including Medina Township and ____ Township.  Company C was commanded by Captain Joseph F. Thomas, who before the war was a Physician in the Chillicothe, Illinois area.

        By early October, the men of the 85th & 86th were in the field in Kentucky as part of Col. Daniel McCook's Brigade, in pursuit of Confederate troops.  On Oct. 8, 1862, the men of McCook's Brigade were engaged with those troops in the Battle of Perryville, Kentucky, the 86th Illinois suffering their first casualties.  There would be many more to come.   After the Battle of Perryville, the Confederate troops withdrew from Kentucky and the men of McCook's Brigade marched on to Nashville, Tennessee where they would go into winter camp.
        The men of McCook's Brigade would spend the winter of 1862/63 in Nashville and remain based there through the spring and early summer of 1863.  The life for these new troops was difficult as the living conditions, life style and diet were not conducive to good health.  Today, the Nashville National Cemetery is the final resting place of hundreds of union soldiers who died during that first winter in Nashville.
        In the late summer of 1863, the men of McCook's Brigade participated the early movements of what would become known as the Campaign for Chattanooga, Tennessee. On September 19-20, 1863, the men of McCook's participated in the Battle of Chickamauga, Georgia, a union defeat.   It is not known if Private Harvey S. Brown was with his company during this battle, as just over a month later on October 29, 1863, Private Harvey S. Brown was transferred to the Veteran Reserve Corps (V.R.C.).
        The Veteran Reserve Corps, which was originally called the "Invalid Corps", was a military reserve organization created within the Union Army during the Civil War to allow partially disabled or otherwise infirmed soldiers to perform light duty, freeing able-bodied soldiers to serve on the front lines. Why Private Harvey S. Brown was transferred to the VRC is not known.  He is not listed among the wounded from Chickamauga.  Perhaps he was sick back in Nashville at the time of the battle, or perhaps he was injured in some way during the campaign for Chickamauga or during the battle itself.  Whatever the reason for his transfer, Private Harvey S. Brown would spend at least part of the remainder of the war in the VRC.    How long Private Harvey S. Brown remained in the VRC is not known, either.   Perhaps he served out the remainder of the war in the VRC.  It just is not known at this time. What is known is that Private Harvey S. Brown survived the war and was back in Peoria County by the fall of 1864.
        Harvey S. Brown was married to Rosey A. Potter on November 19, 1865, in Peoria County, Illinois.  Rosaline A. "Rosey" Potter was born on April 14, 1844, in Berlin, Rensselaer County, New York, the daughter of Riley Potter and Phebe (Green) Potter.   Three children were born to Harvey S. Brown and Rosaline A. (Potter) Brown:
        1. Ella G. Brown, born April/May __, 1870 in Peoria County, Illinois. Ella was married c. 1890/91 to Alfred S. Burdick.   At the time of the 1900 census, Alfred and Ella are found in Hinesdale Township, Hinesdale vill., DuPage County, Illinois. They have been married 9 years and have not had any children. They are believed never to have had any children;  A S Burdick Head M Feb 1867 33 New York;  Ella Burdick Wife F Apr 1870 30 Illinois
        Alfred S. Burdich/Burdick died on February 11, 1933 in Highland Park, Lake County, Illinois. He was born on 15 Feb 1867 in De Ruyter, New York, the son of Stephen Burdich, who was born in Preston, New York, and Susan Maxson, who was born in Alfred, New York. Alfred had been employed with Pres.-Abbott Labratories. Alfred's mortal remains were laid in the Rosehill Cemetery in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois on February 15, 1933.    Nothing more is known for certain about Ella G. (Brown) Burdick. There is a Ella B Burdick, who was born in 1870 in Illinois living in St. Petersburg, Pinellas County, Florida in the 1945 Florida state census. She is 75 years of age. Could this be she?
        2.  Etta Alida Brown, born May 2, 1874 in Peoria County, Illinois. Etta died on March 4, 1880 in Peoria County and her mortal remains were laid in the West Hallock Cemetery in Peoria County, Illinois. See her Find A Grave Memorial# 25490984.
        3. Riley Potter Brown, born February 10, 1879 in Peoria County, Illinois. Riley was married on July 17, 1902 to Sarah Charlotte "Lottie" McWilliam. Sarah was born on July 18, 1880 in Grand Junction in Greene County, Iowa. Sarah died on June 20, 1926 in Boy River, Cass County, Minnesota.  Two daughters were born to Riley and Sarah, one dying in infancy:  A. Ora L. Brown, born c. 1902/03 in Illinois;  B. Ella Brown, born and died in 1906.;
        At the time of the 1905 Wisconsin state census Riley and his family are found in Prentice, Price County, Wisconsin;  Riley P Brown Head M 26y Illinois;  Sarah C Brown Wife F 25y Iowa;  Ora L Brown Daughter F 2y Illinois
The mortal remains of Sarah Charlotte (McWilliam) Brown were laid in the Milton Cemetery in Milton, Rock County, Wi
        At the time of the 1930 census, Riley is found in Boy Lake, Cass County, Minnesota:  Riley P Brown Head M 51 Illinois;  Gertrude Brown Wife F 46 Michigan
        Riley Potter Brown died on January 19, 1965 in Cass County, Minnesota. His mortal remains were cremated at the Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis, Hennepin County, Minnesota, but CREMAINS WERE RETURNED, so they were not buried Lakewood. See his Find A Grave Memorial# 35507344.
        4. Mary Ethel Brown, born October 1, 1880 in Peoria County, Illinois. Mary Ethel Brown never married. Mary Ethel Brown died on October 12, 1932 and her mortal remains were laid in the West Hallock Cemetery in Peoria County, Illinois. See her Find A Grave Memorial# 25490973.
        At the time of the 1870 census, Harvey and his family are found in Akron Township in Peoria County, Illinois:  Brown Harvey S. 32 M Farmer 5,000 700 New York;  Brown Rosa A. 26 F New York;  Brown Ella 3/12 F Illinois; May Brown Aleda 55 F New York;  Potter William 13 M New York;
        At the time of the 1880 census, Harvey Brown and his family are found in Hallock Township, Peoria County, Illinois. He is married and is listed as a Dealer In Horses. Both of his parents are listed as having been born in New York:  self Harvey Brown M 40 New York;  wife Rosa A. Brown F 36 New York;  daughter Ella G. Brown F 10 Illinois; son Riley Brown M 1 Illinois;  other Nancy Marwood F 19 New York;
        In 1887, some of the surviving members of the 86th Illinois organized and held a reunion of the old 86th during the week of August 27th, the 25th anniversary of the mustering in of the men of the 86th. Harvey did not attend this 1st reunion, though more than 110 surviving members of the 86th did. The reunion was such a success that they continued to he held every August through 1923, when the few who were able to attend that reunion tearfully decided that they were too few and too old to continue to hold them.  Through the years, Harvey was able to attend the 1890, 1892, 1900 and 1901 reunions.
        In 1893, Harvey and Rosa moved the family to Wisconsin, where they settled in Milton, Wisconsin.
        In 1898 they moved to Whitewater, Wisconsin, where they remained until Harvey's death.
        At the time of the 1900 census, Harvey and Rosa are found in Ward 3 of Whitewater City, Walworth County, Wisconsin:  Harvey is listed as having been born in July of 1838 in New York. His parents are both listed as having been born in New York.   He and Rosa are listed as having been married 34 years:  Head Harvey S Brown M 62 New York;  Wife Rosa Brown F 56 New York;  Son Riley P Brown M 21 Illinois;  Daughter Mary E Brown F 20 Illinois.
        Harvey S. Brown died on May 8, 1902 at __, Wisconsin. The following obituary was found in the "The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 58, No 21, p. 334 that was published on May 26, 1902:
"Harvey S. Brown was born at Pittstown, Rensselaer Co., N. Y., July 4, 1838, and died May 8, 1902. He was the son of Royal H. and Alida Potter Brown. When about eighteen years of age he came West, going to Albion, Wis., where he entered the Academy. In 1858 he moved to West Hallock, Ill. This continued to be his home until 1893 when he went with his family to Milton, Wis. In 1898 they moved to Whitewater, Wis., where the family resided at the time of his death. In 1862 he enlisted in the 86th Illinois Infantry and remained in the army for about two years. He married Rosaline A. Potter, daughter of Riley and Phebe Green Potter, Nov. 19, 1865. They had four children, three of whom, with the widow, survive him: Mrs. Alfred S. Burdick, Riley P. Brown of Chicago, and Miss Ethel Brown of Whitewater.  Mr. Brown was not a member of any church, but was a regular attendant at the service of the Seventh-day Baptist church when it was possible for him to be present.     A. S. B."
Harvey S. Brown's mortal remains were returned to Illinois where they were laid in the West Hallock Cemetery in Peoria County, Illinois.

        At the time of the 1910 census, Rosaline is found residing with her daughter and son-in-law in Chicago Ward 26, Cook County, Illinois:  Alfred S Burdict Head M 43 New York; Ellen G Burdict Wife F 40 Illinois; Rosie P Brown Mother-in-law F 66 New York; M Ethel Brown Sister-in-law F 29 Illinois
        At the time of the 1920 census, Rosaline is found residing with her daughter and son-in-law in Chicago Ward 26, Cook County (Chicago), Illinois:  Alfred Burdick Head M 52 New York; Ella Burdick Wife F 49 Rose Brown Mother-in-law F 75 New York;  Mary Ethel Brown Sister-in-law F 39 Illinois;  Ora Brown Niece F 16 Illinois
        At the time of the 1930 census, Rosaline is found residing with her daughter and son-in-law in Highland Park, Lake County, Illinois:  Alfred S Burdick Head M 62 New York;  Ella B Burdick Wife F 59 Illinois;  Evelyn V Suomi Servant F 20 Minnesota;  Rosaline P Brown Mother-in-law F 85 New York;  Ora L Brown Niece F 26 Illinois
        Rosaline A. (Potter) Brown died on February 5, 1939 in Ravina, Illinois. "The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 126, No 13, p 220, Mar. 27, 1939 had the following obituary;
"Rosaline Potter, wife of the late Harvey S. Brown, was born in Berlin, N. Y., April 14, 1844, and died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Alfred S. Burdick, Ravina, Ill., February 5, 1939. Though confined to her room for the past eight years, she retained all her alert mental faculties, interest in people and events, together with her charming sense of humor.
While young she became a member of the Seventh Day Baptist Church at Berlin, and later at West Hallock, Ill., remaining loyal and faithful to that fellowship until her death. Her daughter Ella, Mrs. Alfred S. Burdick, survives, and one son, Riley P. Brown, of Boy River, Minn. Two daughters preceded her - Alida in 1880, and Mary Ethel in 1932.  Mrs. Brown was tenderly cared for by her daughter and was laid to rest in the West Hallock cemetery.    H. C. V. H."
Rosaline's mortal remains were returned to Peoria County, where they were laid to rest in the West Hallock Cemetery in Peoria County, Illinois. See her Find A Grave Memorial# 25490989.

[John M. GwinNote:  The following obituary was posted on Lottie's FindAGrave memorial:]
 The Journal-Telephone, Milton Junction, Wisconsin, Thursday, June 24, 1926, p 1:
        Sarah Charlotte McWilliam, familiarly known as 'Lottie,' was a daughter of D. P. McWilliam of Milton, Wis.  When she was born, July 18, 1880, the family lived at Grand Junction, Iowa.  They continued to live there until Lottie was 20 years of age and had become a member of the Seventh Day Baptist church at that place.  In the year 1901, the family moved to Milton.
        She was married to Riley Brown July 17, 1902.  Mr. and Mrs. Brown lived for two years in Chicago, seven years in northern Wisconsin, and for the last fifteen years they had lived at Boy River, Minn., where Mrs. Brown died June 20, 1926. The body was brought to Milton where the funeral service was conducted at the home of her parents by Pastor James L. Skaggs on Wednesday afternoon, June 23, and burial was made in the Milton cemetery.
        Two daughters were born to Mr. and Mrs. Brown.  One died in infancy.   The other, Ora. L., was present with her father at the funeral.
        Mrs. Brown was one of a family of ten children, and she is survived by eight: three brothers and five sisters.  Two of the brothers, Ervin and Darwin, and a sister, Clara, live near Milton.  The other brother, Arthur, is at Tillamook, Ore.  The other sisters are Belva, of Boy River, Minn.; Bertha, of Plainfield, N. J.; Ella, of Palo Alto, Calif.; and Moleta of Stoughton, Wis.  Mrs. Brown is also survived by her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. E. F. Davis, Milton, and by many other more distant relatives.
         She was known for her devotion to her family, her consideration of friends, and her kindness of heart.  God's great world with its life and beauty held a great fascination for her.  She is gone, but she will be affectionately remembered by those who have known and loved her.

[Mike Brown Note: Elizabeth's maiden name is Truelove, sometimes spelled Trulove.  I believe they may have met in AZ as there is a Sidney Brown operating a saloon with his oldest brother John in the 1880 census, although Sidney's age doesn't match.  Elizabeth may have been there visiting family, an aunt named Louise Davis, that she grew up with in CA after her parents died.  Elizabeth's father, William, was a prospector who died in 1869.  I don't know what year Sarah died.  I can't locate her in the 1870 census, which by then her children are living in CA with their grandfather, Joel Davis, Sarah's father. 

Concerning Sidney S. Brown, I have not been able to locate him in the 1870 census.  It would be interesting to see if the 22 year old was still in NY or had started his way west by that time.  My info on Sidney in the 1880 census is speculative and unconfirmed, but it is the best lead I have at this time.  I am also stumped on the next generation beyond his parents, Royal H. Brown & Alida Potter. Royal named his first born John, Sidney's oldest brother.   I found the names John Brown and Polly Spaulding in NY, who had a son named Royal H. and who was born in the correct year, but I have been unable to find enough information to confirm it's our Royal.]

Bertha Ann Brown was my grandmother.  She died right after she had my mother Ruby Frieda Luft (4th child).  I have been trying to find information on her.  My mother recently passed away and I didn't get who my grandmother's parents were and where they were born.
 
After my grandmother died my grandfather remarried and had another child Doris Luft.  As it stands all my aunts and mother have passed.
 
I would like to thank you for your page; I was going off in the wrong direction.  I do have family tree on Ancestry.com named the Cavanaugh Family.  I currently have 1400+ entries.

[Kathy Brown Douglas Note: My grandmother's name ... was actually "Georgie."   My dad told me that she was named for Uncle George (but we're not sure how he fits in--my dad thought he was another brother of Leticia/Lettisha).  Also, Uncle Alfred was Leticia's brother, but the info says that his name is James Albert, so now I am confused.]

Some Pertinent Brown Family Census Data:





I have listed census records here in two different formats.


First are summary transcriptions of copies of the original census records transcribed by Ancestry.com, some of which may have been mistranscribed. Because I was in a hurry at the time, I simply cut and pasted them from Ancestry.com immediately below to at least get some of the data (names and ages) onto this page.

Second are my own transcriptions of copies of the original census pages. These include more data than simply the names and ages of the parties as in the summary trancriptions. These are listed below the summaries in charts with this pale yellow background. While they take longer to add, I believe they may be more valuable because of the additional information.

Ella's age is likely a clue to their wedding date. Three months plus nine more would put their marriage about July 1869. And if Rosa was b. in NY, that would probably mean that their move to IL would've been within the year, don't you think?

It appears that she is actually the daughter of the household head, Riley, and wife of Riley's son-in-law, Harvey. Rosa is Riley's daughter, so if my earlier specualtion is correct (that Riley and Alida are siblings) then Rosa and Harvey are first cousins, perhaps putting Ella and Riley B. at risk for genetic deficiencies/defects. I hope their descendants turned out well.

Ella G. Brown wf

It appears that she is actually the daughter of Harvey and Rosa, thus the granddaughter of the household head. This is H&R's firstborn (we believe); however, with no more children showing for ten years, we may assume that several have died very young, leading us to believe that others may even have preceded Ella in birth; therefore, their marriage could have been even earlier than July 1869.

I decided to include this family because the last name, GREEN, is the same as Lucretia's, residence #170 above, and he's also from NY. He could be a grandson of Lucretia and thereby a first cousin to Harvey. On the other hand, there are MANY in this census who were born in NY; in fact, it looks like an entire trainload of Illinois settlers may have made a mass exodus from NY together! Who knows--maybe they're ALL related...
A quick scan search of this census has turned up another GREEN family--Jefferson, 50 (NY/NY/NY); wife Mary, 41 (IL/MA/MA); daughters Hettie A., 17, and Sarah M., 15; granddaughter Mollie Ovesen (Overen?), 1; an elderly Nelson couple (who are likely Mary's parents--MA/MA/MA). And living next door is an Overen/Oveson family--and on and on it seems to go! Are they all Brown relations?
Another thought: the father of Sidney Brown's wife, Elizabeth Truelove Brown,  is William Green Truelove.

Hi John,
My name is Mike Brown in California.  George & Joanne Brown are my uncle and aunt.  I enjoyed very much looking at your research on the family names, and I wanted to add whatever I could.
Unfortunately none of it is computerized. You may have some of this information already, so please forgive any duplication. 
I can confirm your information on Sidney Brown's parents, Royal H. Brown and Alida Potter.
Royal died between 1860-70 because Alida is widowed and living with her son Harvey in Illinois in 1870.  I do have additional information on the Potter line.
Sidney Brown died July 4, 1919, in Hanford, CA.  His wife Elizabeth's maiden name is Truelove, sometimes spelled Trulove.  She died June 28, 1928, in Laton, CA.  They were married in Cochise Co., AZ on April 5, 1880.  I believe they may have met in AZ as there is a Sidney Brown operating a saloon with his oldest brother John in the 1880 census, although Sidney's age doesn't match.  Elizabeth may have been there visiting family, an aunt named Louise Davis, that she grew up with in CA after her parents died.  Elizabeth's parents were William Green Truelove and Sarah Davis, married in Shaw's Flat, Tolulome Co., CA in 1855.  William was a prospector who died in 1869.  I don't know what year Sarah died.  I can't locate her in the 1870 census, which by then her children are living in CA with their grandfather, Joel Davis, Sarah's father.
Royal E. Brown died in 1956.  I have no information about his marriage, if he ever was.
Nettie Brown married Ralph Delano Dec. 24, 1903. She died May 14, 1956, in Lewis Co., WA
Lee B. Brown married Litisha Dodds in 1922.  Litisha was the mother of Georgie Dodds, Lester Brown's wife. No children. Lee died in 1959. (I did not have the 1930 census info on Lee--thank you!).
Rosa Brown married Madison Stogdill in 1911. She died March 7, 1959, in LA Co., CA.
Bertha Brown married Henry Luft in 1914.  3 children.  She died in 1920 at age 29.
Lester Brown (my grandfather) married Georgie Dodds on Feb. 6, 1924, in Compton, CA.
Hope this is helpful, and thank you for sharing your work and information with all of us.
Mike

Subject: RE: Brown Family

John,
 
Good to meet you as well.  I looked at the updated pages and let me first say how much easier on the eyes it is to read your typed and organized research than my handwritten scribbles and notes!  What a gift to the Brown family--thanks again for taking the time to do this.  I know I have a few additional names and dates which I will pass on to you when I locate them.
 
My research on the family over the years has been very satisfying to me, although at times I've hit a lot of dead ends!  Kathy undoubtedly mentioned the Jesse James connection to you, something we have been told since we were kids, but I have not been able to fully connect the dots (if you are able to, John, you will most definitely be the new Brown family hero!).  Here is what I know about it:
The James name enters on my grandmother Georgie Dodd's line.  As I mentioned previously, her mother is Littisha, or Letisha, Reynolds (m. Dodds), who married Lee B. Brown in 1922.  Littisha's parents are William Reynolds and Mary A. James, married Feb 12, 1864, in Macon Co., MO., and who came to CA I believe in the 1890's.  Mary James' death certificate lists her birth as Nov. 22, 1845, and her death date is June 22, 1918.  Her father is listed as A. James and mother as Ruth Smith.  In The 1850 census of District 22, Macon Co., MO., I found an Alfred James, age 45, and wife Ruth, age 45, and one of their children is Mary A., age 10 (putting her birth year in 1840, not 1845 as indicated on the death cert.).  A brother is on the same census, named Hampton, and I found a Hampton James living in CA with Mary A. and husband William Reynolds in the 1900 census, so I'm fairly certain I have the correct family.  Beyond this, I'm not sure how to proceed to connect our family with the infamous outlaw.   Kathy and I have both viewed the Jesse James family tree and neither of us found a connection.  But it's compelling because Jesse (b.1847) and Mary A. are born in the same generation and in the same state, although different counties.  Perhaps distant cousins?
 
Concerning Sidney S. Brown, I have not been able to locate him in the 1870 census.  It would be interesting to see if the 22 year old was still in NY or had started his way west by that time. My info on Sidney in the 1880 census is speculative and unconfirmed, but it is the best lead I have at this time.  I am also stumped on the next generation beyond his parents, Royal H. Brown & Alida Potter. Royal named his first born John, Sidney's oldest brother.   I found the names John Brown and Polly Spaulding in NY, who had a son named Royal H. and who was born in the correct year, but I have been unable to find enough information to confirm it's our Royal.
 
More later John, and Happy Father's Day!
 
Mike

This has to be our Sarah Truelove, nee Davis; however, she's not a widow yet, as our Elizabeth won't be born for a couple of more years.  So where is her husband, William?  Mike Brown says he's a prospector who won't die until 1869, so he has to be "in the field" somewhere.

Dorcas' name, his initials, and the place of residence pretty much nail this down as the right family. Granted, they're not proof, but I'm convinced. Therefore, I'll move forward, looking for John Clark Shaw, b. ca. 1903 in Ohio, with his dad b. OH and his mom b. in England.

I came across this photo of what I believe to be four generations of mother/daughters.  I believe the photo was taken in late ‘48 to early ‘49 and can verify that it is of my sister, mother, and grandmother (Katrina Felker-Bright).  I also believe it is of my great-grandmother Dorcas Dow-Felker (she would also be Kathy Douglas’ great-grandmother), who was born in 1872 and died in April 1950.  If it is she, she looks to be roughly the 76/77 she would have been at the time of the picture.

Some Pertinent Felker Family Census Data:








Other Interesting Felker Family Data:




"An illustration of sorts--and an engaging digression--brings to the fore a recent hypothesis promulgated by N Brent Kennedy that Melungeons are descended from Ottoman Turks. Evelyn McKinley Orr, a member of the previously mentioned Melungeon Research Committee, wrote a few years back that her Melungeon ancestor, David Goings (whom she discovered in the fall of 1989) must have had Turkish ancestry because Norman Goings of Selma, Indiana, wrote that in 1939 that "Tuckahoe" was the term used by the family to describe itself. Somebody suggeted to Orr that "Tuckahoe" was a "nicname for people from Turkey." Orr stated that David Goings married in Montgomery County, Virginia, and that his wife's family were members of the New River German settlement."

"Tuckahoe" is not at all a misreading or mispronunciation of Turkish. Tuckaho unequivocally alludes to the Virginia origins of Goings. In "Tennessee Civil War Veterans questionnaires", George Washington Lewis of Lebanon, Tennessee, stated that his father Carroll Lewis was from James River in Virginia and that his grandfather Samuel Lewis was a colonel in the Continental Army during the Revolution. He commanded a "regiment of Tuckaho Indians." "Tuckaho" was once a widespread sobriquet for Virginians, especially those from east of the Blue Ridge. The term is derived from the Powhatan language and originally applied to several different roots, tubers, and fungi, some used by Indians for food, especially in the form of bread. Tuckaho was possibly consumed by poor Virginians of every color, for the word came to refer to Virginians generally. The Tuckaho Indian regiment mentioned by George Lewis was composed of foot soldiers from the piedmont counties of Albermarle, Fluvanna, Louisia, and so forth, and was but one of several Virginia regiments of Indian soldiers. Several reputed Tennessee Melungeons had been Revolutionary soldiers in piedmont Virginia before moving down to Newman Ridge. In fact, several mustered and served in the general region of the said Tuckaho Indian regiment. In the Tennessee Civil War Veterans questionnaires, George Lewis stated that the farm he grew up on near Lebanon, Tennessee, was worked before the Civil War by hired free Indian labor..."

"The latest exotic-origins movment, favoring connections with Portuguese, Ottoman Turks, or possibly other Mediterraneans, has generated a peculiar following on the Internet--another virtual community. For such folks, Melungeons are a hot topic, as illustrated by five recently published books and the developement of the ad-hoc "Melungeon Research Committee" noted earlier in this essay. However, I suggest that the current movement is but the latest in a series of mid to late 20th century reinventions of the Melungeons. Unfortunately, while hypothetical "Off-shore Others" flood Appalachia and the word-wide web, real Melungeon histories and historic identities are being cast aside." CS Everett Appalachian Journal.

I am suggesting that the controversy over the Melungeon ethnicity is motivation of some of these vigorous attempts to deny the well documented black and white African ancestry of the Mihil-Thomas Gowen line. The more adamant of those who have denied African, have actually traveled to Turkey with Mr. Kennedy and strongly support his opinions. While I have high regard for Brent's character, I strongly disagree with him on the Turkish origin of Melungeons. He and I continue to communicate frequently and have none of the rancor that is directed to me by some of his followers on this sub.

Some of these so called exotic origins of Melungeons are coming under extreme academic fire, many of those theories will not survive scrutiny or time. We would be wise to keep that controversy separated from sound Gowen research to avoid being labeled as re-inventors of history. I rarely find anyone with the GRF objecting to Mihil and Thomas' Negro kinship who did not first have a strong opinion about the origin of the Melungeons. On the contrary, my article on the origin of the Melungeons was inspired from convincing documented archives of the GRF. This is how it should be. You should state your opinions without going into attack mode by talking about "speculation" etc. Let others make their decisions on the documentation. Genealogy, precisely documented, should drive the theory, not the other way around.

From a search of each of the 1900, 1910, 1920,
and 1930 U.S. Census data for "Rodney Gwin"

Based on these searches, it appears to me that this Rodney R. Gwin is a son of a Harry and Iva Gwin and that he moved away from home for some reason by the time he was fifteen. He was born in Indiana, which is where my Gwins were; however, he was living in central Indiana--Madison Co., not the southern part--in 1900, north of where my family lived but very near where the "other" Indiana Gwins lived.  This is not conclusive, of course, for he could have been born in the southern part of the state and only lived in Madison Co. because he was boarding there. At this point, then, we are pretty much forced to abandon this pursuit via census reports, since there is no 1890 census available (it was burned), and try some other route such as birth certificates, etc.

with transcriber's errors, since
our identification of him is
based on names and ages of
family members
, place names
agreeing as well. However,

in the 1910 and 1900
reports, no such luxury is
afforded, the only possible
matches being boarders, and
we must therefore
depend on
location names
and
approximations only. This

Hi, honey, how interesting about the family history.  There are some changes and requests tho:
I think Ken should be included in the history.  I noticed that Stacey and Ron were  (Kenneth Clark Brown, born 9-6-56 in Long Beach, CA, brother of Kathy)
Grandma Brown (Georgie Louise) was born on 9/4/05 in California
Grandpa Brown (Lester Sylvester Brown) was born on 5/15/l896 in Nebraska
Grandma Dutch was 22 when she married in 1927 – also include her middle name “Carey”  She was born inCarey, OH  (Dorcas Carey Felker)
My grandfather’s name (Grandma Dutch’s father) was Henry Robert Felker and he was born in Indiana in Sept. 1856 and died in 1908.  I guess this is what is written already, so never mind .
My grandfather and grandmother married in 1899 – her maiden name was Dorcas Dow  and she was born Nov. 27,. 1852
Your dad and I were married in 1952
Guess that’s about all for this time because I need to go each lunch before I go to my foot therapy.  This was very, very interesting to me.
Love, Mom
P.S.  Looks like you need to change your kids’ birth years, huh?




Hi, John, yes that is the Lester Sylvester Brown that belongs to us. 
George said that there was a sister of Rosa and Lester and her name was Nettie (sp?). 
Also possibly there was an Elisabeth (sp?) that was their sister. 
Lester Sylvester Brown died in May 1969, and
Georgie Louise died in October of  1989. 
Also Dorcas (Dutch) Shaw died in November 1970 and
John Clark Shaw died in January 1984.
I just remembered that you don’t have my Aunt Kay’s  (Katrina Felker (Bright) year of death.  She died in l976.  
She was married to Leonard Phillip Bright. 
They had two children, Natalie Rose and Richard Phillip.
Also George just told me that his father (Lester Sylvester) had another sibling and his name was Lee B. Brown. 
I don’t know when my Uncle Al (Alvin Felker) died.  It was after my Aunt Kay and Mom. 
He was married to Nancy (don’t know maiden name) and didn’t have any children together. 
She had one from another marriage, a daughter.
Now George just found his dad’s death certificate and it says his year of birth was 1895. 
Also my grandmother, Dorcas Dow Felker, was remarried (don’t know the date, but many years later) to a J. N. (think it was John) Brown. 
No relation to us, of course. 
She died in 1950 in Long Beach.
That’s all for this time.  This could get to be time consuming!!
Joanne
Hi, John, George just said his brother LeRoy’s birth year was 1925 instead of 1924.
Bye

Subject: corrections and additions
Hi John, A few items:

Gordon's dad's name is Roslyn Elwood Douglas, goes by "Doug." 
In the family photo, change James to Doug (James is his father)
In the family photo, Rebecca is the newborn, and Jessica is  age 4. 
Photo taken May 1989.
Gordon's eldest brother is Roslyn Elwyn--different name than his dad, so he is not a junior. 
Married Kathleen Elizabeth Manning on Dec 17, 1966.  ( another Kathy Douglas!)

Stacey Douglas married Janet Miller  June 26, 1982.  No children.
Doug has an older sister, Olive  (married William Middleton), and a younger sister Joyce Elizabeth (married Carl McAndrews). 
I don't know their dates of birth and marriage.  If you would like to call and talk to my father-in-law, his number is.
He has an excellent memory and could give you lots of info about the Douglas clan.

Beth's name Elisabeth is spelled with an "s".  Her birthdate is May 29, 1987.
Rebecca's city of birth is Visalia, CA (same as Beth's)
Please change my profession to registered nurse and lactation consultant.

Ron and Kathy Douglas have 3 sons--info is on the pages that I copied.  all married now with children.
Georgie Louise Dodds was born 9-4-04, not 1905. 
I confirmed that with my mom today.

Ken and his first wife Janice Casey Jones Brown  have 2 children--Greg and Leslie--info is on one of the pages that I copied.  Divorced.
Ken and Margo Melinda Morales were married June 1, 1996. 
Margo did not change her name to Brown.

Whew!!  This family tree has many branches!!!
This is so wonderful of you to gather all of this info.  I hope you're not getting tired of our family! 
I'm going to send my cousins this website, and I'm sure that they will be happy to add to it!
Kathy

[John M. Gwin Note:  The outline list of Jan's and Larry's descendants, below, is taken from Jan's obituary, copied here from her good FindAGrave.com memorial.]
        Joyce Jan "Jan" Williams was born in Red Cloud, Nebraska, February 12, 1933.  She was the only daughter of Mayree (Hudson) and Howard B. Kaley.  Jan departed this life on April 30, 2013k at Midwest City, Oklahoma.
        Jan received her formal education attending the Red Cloud, Nebraska, Public Schools and Stephens College in Missouri.
        Howard Kaley and Jan were noted horse exhibitors, attending parades and horse shows, and Jan was considered one of the state's most accomplished professional jumpers, having jumped at the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Cow Palace.  She held numerous winning ribbons from surrounding states.  Jan was also invited to try out for the Olympics.  Her folks, however, believed that Italy was too far from home.
        Jan was always seeking new adventures in testing limitations.  Her motto was "I'll try everything once."  She held the family parachute bailout record of 14, 520 feet, which will probably stand for some time and not be challenged.
        Jan was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother lovingly referred to as "Grammy."  She and her husband, Larry, were married at Red Cloud, Nebraska in 1952 and served together in the United States Air Force for 30 years, traveling to many parts of the world.  During this time Jan, besides mothering five children, was also an office manager for an audit agency.  The past thirty years found Jan and Larry operating a fine jewelry business and traveling in many states.  Their many friends considered them the mom and pop of their trade.  Their home has been in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, since 1974.
        Preceding her in death were her parents and two children, an infant daughter, Laurie, and Timothy, who was twelve.
        Surviving are her beloved husband of 60 years, Larry D.

[BLANK] [BLANK] ASWTY OH/OH/OH I believe this to be our Dorcas, since there is no other Dorcas Dow to be found of this age in the United States in 1880.  However, the enumerator failed to list her relationship to the head of the house, so we're not real sure whether she's a daughter or a granddaughter (perhaps a child of Rosa, for instance). She does name her firstborn son Alvin D. Felker, making it very plausible that he is named for this Alvin Dow; nevertheless, it is NOT clear whether this Alvin Dow is Dorcas' son's father or grandfather; either is possible. If the former, then Alvin Dow is in generation 24, but if the latter, then he is in generation 25.00, and Rosa and some unknown person are Dorcas' parents.  Perhaps we will solve this mystery from another source.

OH I searched in 1850 Ohio for a William Henry Dodds b. ca.1836 in OH with a brother two years younger named Joseph. This William's family seems to fit that criteria.   There's no proof of that yet, of course, but there is enough data to make the possibility feasible and warrant recording it here. We'll go next to the 1860 census and see if we can find the family there.

If son Henry two lines below is our Wm. H. Dodds, then we now know his father, also William H. Dodds (Sr.). His parents are born in Ohio; he married an Iowa girl whose parents were also b. in Iowa, so that must mean that Wm. Sr. traveled from OH to IA, so we'll look for him in 1870 in IA.

I have no doubt this is our William H. Dodds, future husband of Leticia Reynolds. Having found him in 1910 as a native Californian, we can see here that his age is right, his parents' places of birth are right, his father's name is the same (so they are Sr. and Jr.), and we learn that his own name, Henry, gives it away as being a namesake for President Harrison.

REYNOLDS


Section Updated 2008

Order of Research for this Line:
1. We started with what we already knew, that Mary A. James was certainly married to this William Reynolds.
2. Noticing that William was b. in MO in Jan 1846 (from the 1900 census), we looked for him in the 1850 census and found one Wm. Reynolds in Macon Co., so we copied that census data (see bottom of this Reynolds section).
3. Then we copied the 1880 census data we already had from the James section and noticed that their firstborn, Cindy, COULD have been named for her possible paternal grandmother, Cyndrella. (Could've looked at 25.01 below--duh.)
4. Now we're searching the 1870 census for the Reynolds family in Macon Co.--without success, so far--so we suspect a misspelling or mistranscription of the last name...

I wonder if she married a cousin to be still using the name James, or if she took her maiden name back after her husband died. Maybe we can find out if we can find her again in 1900. Oh, I notice in this same census that she is deaf and dumb. Hmm. I wonder if someone took advantage of her disability. Or maybe it was a shotgun wedding, and he tried to get out of it, getting the wrong end of the shotgun in the process, and she really did end up being a widow. Speculation aboundeth.

I have no idea who this is, but she is a James widow living in the same township as Hampton, so we'll include her.

Looking for clues that the William we found in the 1850 census might be ours indeed, I see that this Cindy--William and Mary's firstborn daughter--COULD have been named for her paternal grandmother Cyndrella. I know it's a weak clue; nonetheless, we noticed it.

Alfred is living right next door to William and Mary. (When looking for him on Ancestry.com, you must search for Alford, as that's what the enumerator wrote.)
