PIONEER BROWN FAMILY


 

1.  SIMEON BROWN, (son of NATHANIEL & SARAH (DOTY) BROWN) was born 15 May
1806 in Fairfield, Herkimer County.  SIMEON, a shoemaker, and LUCINDA, his 
wife, came with their 2 sons George and Greenlief moved to Brownville in 1834 
per Greenliefs' own statement in an interview  later in life.  The family was 
not in Herkimer in 1835 which lends evidence to this.  The family lived either 
in the town of Brownville or on Pillar Point.  The evidence suggests Pillar 
Point.  They had 3 other sons  all born in Jefferson Co.  He died 16 March 1893 
in St Clair, St Clair, MI (questionable).
