William married Mary Ann Burris in 1849 and had numerous children. It is said that he was Presbyterian and was of English (Scot) descent. The question is, who were his parents and where did they come from and when? William and Mary Ann's marriage cert does not state anything about the parents on either side. :-(
If you have any info and docs, please let me know. Been wondering about this for decades - want to trace the Brown name back....
