Do you know where in Va. your John was born. I have been searching for sibling of Archibald Brown Sr. The first record I have of him is his mariage in 1789 in Cumberland Co. Va. My family tree starts with John Peter Brown who came from Germany. in 1753, Also found a John Peter Brown Born in 1764 Where in Phil Pa. at that time.
Believe that they came to Cumberland Co. somtime after 1874 and left Va. for Ohio staring in 1833.Floyd's, John's and Harvey are common names on my tree.

Hi John, were any of your Browns in the Donald W. Virginia area, Nicholas County around 1880-1900? Im trying to locate family to my grandfather and all I have is his birth date and where he said he came from.
