Subject: Anderson ~ Brown Connection
From: Byron Brown

David G Brown, born 1790-1800, was in Dubois Co, IN by 1813 as member of United States Mounted Rangers at FT McDonald (mud holes). About 1826-28 he married Nancy Brittain, daughter of William Brittain and sister of Smith Brittain. Smith Brittain married David G Brown's sister Sarah Brown.

David G Brown/Nancy Brittain children: William Jackson born 1829. Sarah J born August 28-29, 1831. Martin Vanburen born 1836. Nancy H born 1838. Rebecca born 1842.

Sarah J Brown married Thomas A Anderson, Jr, Jan 19, 1850. children: William Perry born 1853. Thomas G born 1864. Hester A born 1866.

David G Brown died Dec 1845-Jan 1846. Nancy Brittain Brown remarries to Raughley Horton, January 1847. Within a year or so she dies, leaving orphaned children.

A Mary Ann Brown, born 1831, married John Anderson, Jan. 1848, Dubois Co, IN. July Court term, Dubois County, IN, John Anderson Jr. appointed legal guardian for all of orphaned children of David G Brown/Nancy Brittain Brown. Questions: What relation is Mary Ann Brown to this family of Browns? Is the John Anderson she married in Jan, 1848, the sames Anderson who accepts guardianship of Brown children? Are these children their cousins, or brothers -&- sisters. Is she twin sister of Sarah J Brown? They have same birth year! Who are the children of Mary Ann Brown/John Anderson? Where does that line go?

On 1850 census we see following relationship between Brown children -&- Anderson family in Dubois Co, IN: Oldest son, William Jackson, born 1829 is shown as farm laborer in another household.

Sarah J Brown, born 1831 was wife of Thomas A Anderson Jr and they have sarah's baby sister, Rebecca, age eight living in their houhehold. Martin Vanburen Brown, born 1836 is living in the David Anderson household. Nancy H Brown, born 1838, is living in a Mary Anderson household. Mary Anderson appears to be a widow, age 49. So we see the whole ANDERSON family have taken over to finish raising these Brown orphans! ANDERSON'S were GOOD PEOPLE!

Martin Vanburen Brown married Mehalet Powers, Dubois Co, IN abt 1868-9. Children: Martin, Thomas, Clarence P, David R. Hehalet died 1870. Martin V Brown marries 2nd: Diannah (anna) Williams from Orange Co, IN. Children: Franklin I, Mary Arvada, Robert Lincoln, William E, Nancy L, Jethro Madden. January 1884, martin V Brown dies suddenly leaving eight underage children in his household. Guess who comes to the rescue? Thomas A Anderson Jr, husband of Sarah J Brown is appointed guardian, Dubois Co, IN. The ANDERSON family of Dubois Co., IN were of great benefit to the two generations of BROWN FAMILY ORPHANS!

Other Anderson/Brown questions?: The following Brown/Anderson marriages held by AJ Strain, Cumberland Presbyterian church (Shiloh), Dubois Co. This is the Church where the two families worshiped for two generations. Perry Brown married Aerial Anderson, Nov 4, 1856. Urial Brown married Thomas Harris, May 6, 1866. Sanford Brown married Martha E Mckinsey, nov 22, 1866. William Browen married Elizabeth McMickel, March 29, 1854. Nancy H Brown married William T Cooper, Oct 6, 1859. Rebecca Brown married William P Horned, Jan. 29, 1863. Does anyone have any information oon these marriages, who were their parents -&- siblings? I know about the last two in my line, Nancy H -&- Rebecca, but have no record of their families?
