Descendants of Joshua Brown & Charlotte Morris

 

Generation No. 1

1. JOSHUA2 BROWN (MR.1) was born Abt. 1765 in Cumberland Co, MD or PA?, and died November 26, 1832 in Maddensville, Huntingdon Co., PA. He married CHARLOTTE MORRIS December 22, 1790. She was born April 14, 1770 in Bedford Co, PA?, and died November 05, 1838 in Maddensville, Huntingdon Co., PA.

PROOF:

(The County of Huntingdon was officially established on September 20, 1787 as a large region of Central Pennsylvania. Previously part of Bedford County and the earlier Cumberland Region)

Supposedly he was a Rev War Patriot and some say a drummer boy, but I have not found PROOF of any of that yet. The Joshua Brown Jr. in Lancaster county (son of Joshua Brown & Hannah Gatchell) was an 8th class volunteer in the Lancaster Co, Penn. volunteers during the Rev. War. A military historian told me that sometimes the 8th class in a battalion are the musicians and drummer boys, but that isn't always the case. At any rate, that is not our Joshua Brown, so I don't think our Joshua Brown is the drummer boy.

------Don't have names of his parents yet, but his brothers/or extremely close cousins were Daniel & James, as the 3 of them purchased land together October 31, 1785 (see down below**)

-----I have a picture of both gravemarkers. Joshua Brown married to Charlotte Morris(son). On the picture of his gravemarker, it does not say he was born 1765, it says "Died Nov 26, 1832, Aged about 67 Yrs.". He could have been older, and we could be off on his birthyear. If he was born earlier, he may very well have fought in the Rev. War. Her marker gives the death date and her exact age up to the day.

------DNA testing shows a 37 marker perfect match for descendants of Joshua Brown b.1765 married to Charlotte Morris, and with descendants of William Brown b.1759 married to Ruth Lane. We feel they are either brothers or very close cousins.

-----"History of Huntingdon & Blair Counties"/J. Simpson Africa Pg 363 says "Maddensville......There was at that time an old saw-mill half a mile up the Little Aughwick, with a small clearing around that and the house of Mr. Brown." that is all in that paragraph. Then on another paragraph it says "Among the early settlers in the vicinity of Maddensville was Joshua Brown, who owned a tract of land up the little Aughwick Creek, now owned by the Madden brothers. Mr. Brown died in the fore part of 1882, aged ninety years." (this was apparently referring to Joshua Brown Jr., son of our Joshua Brown & Charlotte Morris who died September 17, 1884 at about 85 years old.)

-----1782, March 14, Hopewell Twp, Cumberland co, PA. -(The County of Huntingdon was officially established on September 20, 1787 as a large region of Central Pennsylvania. Previously part of Bedford County and the earlier Cumberland Region) -"Indictments 1750-1800 Cumberland Co, PA"/Marri Lou Scribner Schaumann, pg 76, #982 - Joshua Brown of Hopewell twp. assault & battery on William Highland on March 14, 1782.

-----1785, Oct 31 -"Pennsylvania Archives", 3rd Series, Vol 25, pg 457 - Bedford Co. Warrantees of Land, lists: Joshua Brown Oct 31, 1785; Daniel Brown Oct 31, 1785; James Brown Oct 31, 1785; WM. BROWN Nov 7, 1785 (William possible brother or cousin to Joshua???); Joseph Brown Sept 12, 1785; Joseph Brown Jun 28, 1785; Thos Brown Jan 12, 1785; Richard Brown Jun 28,1774; Wm. Brown Aug 6, 1773; Wm. Brown Aug 3, 1773; Rebecca Brown Aug 3, 1773;

------*** I have a copy of the original land warrant application dated Oct 31, 1785. I got it from Blair County Genealogical Society, Roller Hojeth Memorial Library, 431 Scotch Valley Rd., Hollidaysburg, PA 16648. It is titled exactly like this: "1785 Oct 31", "Dan'l, Joshua & James Brown". This is the information on it: Daniel Brown makes application for four hundred acres of land on the Hills adjoining the mouth of the three spring creek on the north side of said creek in Shurlock twp (probably supposed to be Shirley Twp). Joshua Brown makes application for four hundred acres of land laying on [?Broad Coles Junn?] Spring branch and adjoining a tract known by the name of McGaws land in Shurlock Twp. James Brown makes application for two hundred and ninty acres of land laying on the north side of the McGaws & [Pickets? plows] at the foot of Jacks Mountain in Shurlock Twp. Signed by justices of Bedford Co. Oct 6, 1785-Hugh Davison.

------I also have a copy of the above original land warrant dated Oct 31, 1785 that was obtained from the Penn Archives in Harrisburg. For some reason it is a little different than the one above. Warrant # 181 dated Oct 31, 1785 Bedford County, 400 acres. It does not mention the other 2 Brown boys. It just lists Joshua Brown. It reads: Joshua Brown patented 25th March 1868 to Thomas Hooper, Asaph (Freas?), & Jabez (Burd?). The rest is just as the one above. This must be his son Joshua Brown because the original Joshua Brown was deceased at this time. Possibly they couldn't locate the original patent, and Joshua Jr. was trying to sell the property.

-----1788 Dublin Twp, Huntingdon Co, PA - "Pennsylvania Archives", 6th Series, Vol. 3, pg 450-451, A list of persons names subject to Malitia duty, Dublin Twp, Huntingdon Co, 1788, #53 is Joshua Brown. (1788 is officially after the Rev War for DAR). Notice he is in Huntingdon Co, now, which was Bedford County previously. (The County of Huntingdon was officially established on September 20, 1787 as a large region of Central Pennsylvania. Previously part of Bedford County and the earlier Cumberland Region)

-----1790 census - I can not locate Joshua Brown???

------1790 huntingdon Co, PA census pg 124 - Wilkinson Lane, Vinson Stephens, Wm. Brown, JAMES BROWN, Benjamin Brown, John Stephens, Thomas Stevens, Abraham Lain, Samuel Lane, Wm. Stephens, John Brown, etc. Several Browns on the same page. Possibly related?

-----1800 Springfield Twp, Huntingdon Co, PA census - pg 137 - Joshua Brown (1 male 26-45, 4 males under 10, 1 female 26-45, 1 female under 10); Wm. Wagner (father of Abraham) nearby, also several Gutshalls, Ramsays, Lane, Maddin, Corbins & more.

------1810 Springfield Twp, Hunt. Co., PA census - Huntingdon Co, PA census pg 17A J. Brown 00101020; Pg 22B shows a J. Brown 0010122101; and on pg 24b is a J. Brown 001010120; Not sure if any, or which one is Joshua Brown.

-----1820 Springfield Twp, Hunt. co. PA census, pg. 9 - Joshua Brown (1 male over 45, 2 male 16-26, 1 male under 10, 1 female over 45, 1 female 16-26, 3 female under 10-26); nearby Wm. Wagner;

-----Bible Records of Joshua Brown & his family were written Jun 4, 1838. I got a copy of the original Bible record from E.A. Brown. I also got a typewritten copy from the Hunt. Co. Hist. Soc., and it is the same copy that the Lancaster Co. Hist. Soc. has a copy of (per Kevin at Lanc.Hist.Soc.). It specifically says Charlotte's maiden name was MORRIS, not Morrison. It names Joshua & Charlotte's death dates, her birth date as April 14, 1770, and their marriage date of Dec. 22, 1790. It also gives the birthdates of all of their children. The records were originally donated by Loyd Leslie Lamberson Jan 5, 1970. He was at 2550 Tulane Ave., Apt. 105, Daytona Beach, FL 32018. I'm not sure where the originial bible and copies of the bible records are now but the Huntingdon Co, library only has a copy of the typed copy.

----"Your Family Tree", Pennsylvania Genealogy & History Quarterly, Volume XV, summer 1969, Number 3, pg 84 shows Joshua & Charlotte Brown buried in Old School Baptist Cemetery. Also several of their children are buried there also. It gives Charlotte's death date and birth date, but I don't see her birthdate on the pictures of her cemetery marker, just her age down to the exact day. Her 'bible record' gives a different birthdate. I am going to use the one on the 'bible records'.

-----Bible Records of the Wagner family, written by Harrison B. Wagner, a son of Abraham Wagner & Charlotte Brown (daughter of Joshua & Charlotte Brown), names all of the children of Abraham and Charlotte, and also names all of the children of David Stevens & Elizbeth Fisher, and Jesse Stevens & Rebecca Wagner and other families. This shows the closeness of the Stevens, Lanes, Browns & Wagners.

-----"Commemorative Biographical Encyclopedia of Juaniata Valley..etc." published in 1897 - pg 158 --------Article starts with Joshua Brown Jr., talks about Joshua Brown Sr. being a native of Lancaster Co, PA. It states he married Charlotte Morrison, and talks about all of their children and who they married, including Charlotte marrying Abraham Wagner. I don't know who wrote or submitted the information for this article but they must not have been sure where Joshua Brown Sr. was from. Possibly they quoted information from other incorrect articles. Because on pg 165 is another article----starts with Hiram Brown and says his grandfather Joshua Brown was a native of Maryland and thought Joshua had a brother in North Carolina. It also mentions his children and whom they married, etc. Which one was correct???? We feel like the last one was correct. We do believe he was born near Cumberland, MD, which that area exchanged borders a couple of times with the Lancaster/Chester County area of Penn. We also feel that Joshua Brown & Charlotte Morris were possibly related somehow to the Joshua Brown and Hannah Gatchell family of Lancaster County, Penn. But we know for sure now, that they were two seperate families entirely. [Joshua Brown and Hannah Gatchell's son Joshua Brown was well documented in the Quaker records and probate records, and he was born Feb 17, 1760, married Dec 25, 1800 Sarah Balderston Ely (a widow), and that Joshua Brown died Aug 22, 1823 leaving a Will showing he had no children.] So we know that is a different family and not our Joshua Brown. But the Joshua Brown and Hannah Gatchell, did have similar name patterns to their children that our Joshua Brown and Charlotte Morris had, along with the William Brown and Ruth Lane family that eventually moved to Ohio. (I have the information on this William Brown family listed in this GEDCOM as a possible brother to our Joshua Brown & Charlotte Morris)

------Penn Land Office, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Patent Book H-62-353 - "A warrant was issued to Joshua Brown on October 31, 1785 for a tract of 400 acres in Shirley Township, Bedford County (now Huntingdon County). (This is the one mentioned above). A survey was made April 27, 1786 Of 403 acres and 76 perches adjoining lands of John Howard and Samuel Denning. By various conveyances this tract became vested in Thomas Hooper, Asaph Price and Jabez Beers and a patent was issued to them on March 23, 1868 for this tract 403 acres 76 perches then in Cromwell Township, Huntingdon County.

Church and Family History Research Assistance for Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania CHURCHES:

------MILL CREEK - Mill Creek Church was organized in about 1800, at a log meeting house which had been erected, about two miles from the mouth of Mill Creek, with eleven charter members, viz., James Hampson, Nathan Gorsuch, Ann HALL, Mary Hampson, TEMPERANCE BROWN, Lydia Plowman, SAMUEL LANE, James Davis, DANIEL BROWN, Rachel KELLY, and Rachel Davis. Mill Creek Church united with the Baltimore Association in 1817, and then helped organize the Juniata Association in 1821. Early pastors included Elders SAMUEL LANE, J. Davis, and Jesse Ash. (Is this Daniel Brown and wife Temperance the brother to Joshua?)

------HUNTINGDON (CASSVILLE) - Huntingdon Church was organized about the commencement of the nineteenth century, when the population was very sparse, hence the name that was given to it by reason of its being one of the earliest Baptist Churches in the region. Among the early members may be named William Lovell, Jacob and Jonathan Dean. The place of worship was during many years the house of Jacob Dean, three miles northwest from Cassville. In 1825 a house of worship was erected, on land donated by Mr. Dean, near his house. It was a log structure, thirty by thirty-two feet. At first it was furnished with slab benches, but they were replaced with slips, and the outside of the building was "pebble-dashed." The pastors of this church included Elders SAMUEL LANE, James Davis, Moses Starr, Richard Proudfoot, Nathan Everett, ZOPHER D. PASCO, George L. Elgin, Joseph Furr, and Joseph Correll. (At the top of the Bible Records for Joshua Brown & Charlotte Morris was the name of their minister ZOPHER D. PASCO.

vi. JEREMIAH BROWN, b. March 04, 1802, Springfield, Huntingdon Co, PA; d. March 16, 1880, Clear Creek, Johnson Co, IA; m. ANN/NANCY MADDEN, Abt. 1823; b. July 23, 1803, PA; d. January 24, 1890, Shelby, IA.

Notes for JEREMIAH BROWN:

PROOF: ALL OF THIS PROOF came from Jeremiah Brown researchers. This is not my line so I haven't checked the validity of the information.

-------From eabrownwa@verizon.net; or eabrown@methow.com

One other bit of new info is about Jeremiah son of Joshua and Charlotte.

I have traced him from Springfield twp in Huntingdon county to Clear

Creek twp in Johnson Co. Iowa in the 1860. Jeremiah and Ann show up in

the 1870 census in Iowa, and the marriage of there daughter Elizabeth to

A J Runkle references her parents as living in Clear Creek Twp et al. As

an aside I remember visiting Elizabeth and A J's two children with my

parents during the late 30'a and early 40's in Cedar Rapids, IA. The 1880

census lists Ann Brown and son M(Morris) as living in Kane Twp Harrison

Co, IA. Further I have found the probate of Jeremiah Brown in Harrison

Co. Iowa 14 March 1882 which indicates that he died 16 March 1880. This

explains why I was unable to find Jeremiah in the 1880 census, but his

wife and their son in Harrison co. I have further found that Jeremiah,

Ann and their son William M. and daughter-in-law Rachel B.( Snyder) are

buried in the Shelby, IA cemetery. This now clears up the confusion

about where and when Jeremiah and Ann died and are buried. The only

disconnect is the birth date for Jeremiah - the bible record shows 4

March 1802 and his grave marker shows 1 Aug 1802, but I don't find this

to be a compelling problem.

-----1860 Clear Creek Twp, Johnson Co, IA census - Jeremiah & Ann Brown

----1870 census, see above -

----1880 Kane Twp, Harrison Co, IA - Jeremiah is deceased, widow Ann Brown & son Morris Brown

----His probate is in Harrison Co, IA dated March 14, 1882 and it indicates he died March 16, 1880

Notes for GEORGE WASHINGTON BROWN:

If this information is correct and they named their son Morris Brown it is very probable that it was his mother's maiden name, therefore it is probable her maiden name was Morris not Morrison.

1. MARY1 LONG1 was born February 02, 1810 in Highland Cty., Ohio, and died July 16,

1893 in Keosauqua, Van Buren Cty., Iowa. She married GEORGE WASHINGTON BROWN

1835 in Near Lancaster, Ohio, son of JOSHUA BROWN and CHARLOTTE MORRISON. He was

born February 11, 1813 in Springfield Twp., Huntingdon Cty., Pennsylvania, and died

June 21, 1905 in Keosauqua, Van Buren Cty., Iowa.

Burial: Center Chapel, Van Buren Cty., Iowa

Notes for GEORGE WASHINGTON BROWN:

Obit:

"George Washington Brown was born in Huntingdon, Co., Penn., Feb. 11th, 1813, and

died in Keosauqua, Iowa, June 21st, 1905, aged 92 years, 4 months and 10 days. He

was the youngest of a family of eleven children, and the last to be called from the

scenes of this life. At the age of nineteen, or in 1832, he moved near Lancaster,

Ohio, where he resided for sixteen years. In 1848, he came to Van Buren county,

Iowa, and located near Keosauqua. Since that time he has made this county his home.

In 1835 he was united in marriage to Mary Long. To them were born eight children,

all of whom have preceded their father in death, except one son S. M. Brown and one

daughter, Mrs. J.H. Kennedy. His companion died eleven years ago, since which time

he has made his home with his son S. M. Brown of Keosauqua. During the civil war he

enlisted in Co. C, of the 37th Iowa Infantry, in which capacity he served his country

faithfully. Father Brown was a devoted Christian. He was converted and united with

the Methodist Episcopal church at an early age, and always gave his

influence and support to the advancement of the Master's kingdom. For years he has

been anxiously awaiting the call of the Master, to the rewards of the life beyond,

towards which he looked with joy and expectation. The immediate cause of his death

was a stroke of paralysis, which he sustained Sunday morning about 5 o'clock, losing

the entire use of his right side, and also his power of speech. The end came

peacefully and he fell asleep in the faith in which he lived. The world has been

made richer by his life, and Heaven has been made richer by his death."

Virginia, fought the enemy at Lexington and Moorefield. re-organized near Chambersburg and was recruited for 3 year term. March 1, they proceeded to Martinsburg where it joined forces and proceeded to Cumberland. In April went to Pleasant Valley, MD where it received horses & equipment, receiving courses in drill & discipline, Finally in June they proceeded, by Col. Mulligan as an infantry unit, to Leetown to meet rebel Gen. Early. July 3rd they were attacked by a largely superior force but bravely stood their ground for 8 hours to give relief to the Union forces fighting at Martinsburg. On the 6th & 7th they engaged in skirmishes on Maryland Heights, then fought against Gen. Early again who was advancing towards Maryland to capture the National Capital.

------ On the 22nd they were finally outfitted as Cavalry, joined Gen. Torberts forces, who led the advance of Gen. Sheridan, who had just been put in command of entire army of the Shenandoah Valley. On Aug 20th they joined the attack and covered the retreat of Gen. Sheridan from Cedar Creek. They were in several other small battles. Aug. 25th at Charlestown they sustained considerable losses. They were again in several scattered battles and on Sept 18, Sheridan was now ready to move upon Early with all his forces combined. They charged the enemy at Martinsburg and pursued Early's retreating forces to Winchester. That evening the 22nd led by Maj. Troxell joined in the charge finally routing the enemy and sent them in flight, capturing a battery of 80 men. They continued to route the enemy all the way to Mount Vernon Forge. There in a fierce attack the 22nd took severe losses, and several were taken prisoners. Oct 19th at Cedar Creek again they had a number killed & wounded. They then rested until Dec. 20th after wards they were ordered throughout the remaining winter to clean out several counties which they did. They were constantly in the saddle and exposed to great hardships. April 1865 the remainder of the men whose terms had not expired, continued and consolidated with the 18th regt. forming the 3rd Provisional Cavalry. There they went throughout W. Virginia keeping civil order until they mustered out in Cumberland, MD on Oct 31st.
