I have abstracts of Bible records for the birth dates of children of Joseph Brown, which include Jesse Brown. Go to my Sealock database on rootsweb's world connect. Joseph Brown's wife, Sarah Edmonds, descends from a Revolutionary war soldier. I believe it was her father.
we think Amos Brown came from NJ because his son Joseph, in the 1850 census, said he was born inNJ circa 1798. We have not had any luck finding Amos in NJ records, but then I have not explored any NJ state tax records that might exist.
