Hello,

It took me a while looking through all the BROWN's in Piscataquis County, ME, and looked for people young enough to have young children in 1920. The next to last family on the list seems to be your mother's parents:

BROWN, WESTON L (1920 U.S. Census)
MAINE , PISCATAQUIS, ELLIOTTSVILLE PLANTATION
Age: 34, Male, Race: WHITE, Born: ME
Series: T625 Roll: 647 Page: 88

Weston's wife is Esther E. BROWN, 25, and this census has them with 2 children, Gertrude A. BROWN, 6, and a newborn son, Alvano W. BROWN. (Handwriting is hard to read so I don't know if it says, Alvano.) Weston is a laborer, and then it says something like a Section Man. Other neighbors say the same occupation. Everyone is from a Maine family.

With that name, I went back to the 1910 census and find Weston here. He and his brother, Willard BROWN, 20, are listed as brothers-in-law to an Albert BICKFORD and his wife, Emma. They have 2 young children. Albert is from Canada/English, and they had been married for 12 yrs., with 4 children, but only 2 are living, Albert, 10, and Calvin, 5.

BROWN, WESTON L (1910 U.S. Census)
MAINE , PENOBSCOT, SEBOEIS PLANTATION
Age: 25, Male, Race: WHITE, Born: ME
Series: T624 Roll: 544 Page: 140

.. There is another Weston BROWN in another town:

BROWN, WESTON G (1910 U.S. Census)
MAINE , PENOBSCOT, CORINTH
Age: 44, Male, Race: WHITE, Born: ME
Series: T624 Roll: 544 Page: 161

.. There is another Weston BROWN in Washington Co., ME, actually in Princeton, and a neighbor of my ancestor, Joseph KIDDER.

.. I find a Weston BROWN in 1900, but at 15 he's living with a TATE family as a servant.

BROWN, WESTON C (1900 U.S. Census)
MAINE , PENOBSCOT, CORINTH
Age: 15, Male, Race: WHITE, Born: ME
Series: T623 Roll: 597 Page: 46

There is this Weston, an older man:

BROWN, WESTON (1900 U.S. Census)
MAINE , LINCOLN, SOMERVILLE
Age: 67, Male, Race: WHITE, Born: ME
Series: T623 Roll: 596 Page: 147

In 1880 these 2 Westons are listed:

BROWN, WESTON (1880 U.S. Census)
MAINE , LINCOLN, SOMERVILLE
Age: 46, Race: WHITE, Born: ME
Series: T9 Roll: 483 Page: 550

BROWN, WESTON J. (1880 U.S. Census)
MAINE , WASHINGTON, PRINCETON
Age: 29, Race: WHITE, Born: ME
Series: T9 Roll: 489 Page: 41


A quick look at www.familysearch.org and I only find the Weston BROWN, b~1885, mentioned for the 3 census years. No other information.

I just looked for an Alvano BROWN and find him here:

Name: Alvano W Brown
Residence: , Piscataquis, Maine
Estimated Birth Year: 1920
Age: 0
Birthplace: Maine
Relationship to Head of Household: Son
Gender: Male
Race: White
Marital Status: Single
Father's Birthplace: Maine
Mother's Birthplace: Maine
Film Number: 1820647
Digital Folder Number: 4301002
Image Number: 00181
Sheet Number: 4
Household Gender Age
Parent Weston L Brown M 34y
Parent Esther E Brown F 25y
Gertrude A Brown F 6y
Alvano W Brown M 1m
Alice Emerson F 68y

Back at HeritageQuest, Mrs. Alice EMERSON, widow, is listed as a boarder.

This is unusual. In 1930 Alvano is listed as a step-son:

Name: Alvano W Brown
Event: Census
Event Date: 1930
Event Place: Seboeis, Penobscot, Maine
Gender: Male
Age: 9
Marital Status: Single
Race: White
Birthplace: Maine
Estimated Birth Year: 1921
Immigration Year:
Relationship to Head of Household: Stepson
Father's Birthplace: Maine
Mother's Birthplace: Maine
Enumeration District Number: 0092
Family Number: 9
Sheet Number and Letter: 1A
Line Number: 25
NARA Publication: T626, roll 838
Film Number: 2340573
Digital Folder Number: 4584738
Image Number: 00373
Household Gender Age
William P Pierce M 34
Caroline E Pierce F 35
Alvano W Brown M 9
Robert E Brown M 7

.. Earlier Alvano's mother is listed as Esther E. BROWN, but here she is listed as Caroline E. (?) (BROWN) PIERCE.

Hope this helps a little.
