Hi Gail, I hope you get this reply (been awhile). This Isaac Neely Brown was born 1860 in Phelps County, Missouri. He was a son of George C. Brown born 1827, born in MO (or possibly back in Washington or Greene Co KY) died 1860 in Phelps Co MO, and Mary G. Harding born 1830 in Hancock IL died 1880 in Phelps Co MO. George C. Brown age 33 was in the 1860 census in Phelps Co MO with wife Mary G. 28, children J.R. 10, Moses 7, Rebecca 4, John 2, and male "G.C. Brown" 1/12. The youngest male is listed as Isaac N. Brown in the 1870 census in Phelps MO. Mary G. Brown is 40 (still a widow). The siblings are all the same as in 1860 (James Robert 19, Moses 17, Rebecca 14, John W. 12 and Isaac N. 10.
George C. Brown was a son of Moses W. Brown born 1803 Washington KY died 1863 in Carroll MO and wife Rebecca Staton. Moses W. Brown was a son of John Brown and Nancy Ann Neely, who I now think was actually Nancy Ann Coppedge Neely, widow of Isaac Neely dec'd 1791 (based on numerous indicators). She is the Nancy Neely who married John Brown 18 Sep 1799 in Washington Co KY. I descend from their son, Isaac Neely Brown born 1801.
