Looking for the Kentucky family of our Robert & Wm Brown who resided next to each other in Evans Twp 30N on the 1840 US Census Report. In 1840 Evans Twp was still a part of LaSalle County and it became Marshall County in 1842. They were both reportedly from Kentucky but we don't know where in Kentucky or who their mother was. Their father was Wm Brown Sr, the Rev War Veteran that was buried in Cherry Point Cemetery in 1841. Wm Brown and his wife Elizabeth arrived in 1834 and pre-empted 160 ac of land with a Martin Kennedy in August of 1838. Robert Brown and his wife Mary Ann Reed we originally from Kentucky but lived for a short time in Batavia, Clermont County, Ohio in the early 1830's before removing to Evans Twp in 1837. Robert and Mary Ann also pre-empted their land in August 1838. We have the full Land Entry File available to view. Most of what is posted online about these families is information that we have placed there as we have been working our Brown family line for over 14 years now. We need new information from someone's private files that has not yet been placed online. If you are a cousin of ours with as yet unpublished Brown family information or pictures we would love to see what you have to share!
