I'm trying to find information about the ancestors of Frances BROWN b. June 1, 1777 in Caswell County NC, m. Jesse HOLLIS Sept. 27, 1836, d. July 31, 1852 in Gibson County, IN.

They owned property on Tom's or Thom's Creek, and on the North Branch of Stony Creek. At least a part of their property, according to the Caswell County deed books, lay adjacent to that of William V. BROWN. They sold it to Hosea McNiell in 1825, when they moved to Indiana.

Could your William Brown and my William V. Brown be the same person? Other names connected with Frances are Basil BROWN, said to be her brother, and Hudson BROWN, possibly a brother or nephew. Basil owned the first hotel in Princeton, Indiana.

I have a fairly extensive list of Frances' descendents which I will be happy to share.
