I am hoping someone can help me. I am trying to confirm that the mother of Charles L. Brown (1912-1955) was Mary Hourigan Raleigh Brown, born in May of 1871 in NY to Daniel and Mary Hourigan of Oswego. It looks like her first husband, John Raleigh died young leaving her with 4 children: May, Harold, Alice and Rowan. If this Mary married 2nd Francis "Frank" Brown of Syracuse and had 4 more children: Francis, Fred, Charles & Marion, does anyone know if her father Daniel, was the one who worked on the ships? Also, if anyone connects to her, do you know anything about Frank Brown or what happened to John Raleigh? Thanks in advance!
