Thomas and Elizabeth Brown were in the Cherokee County, North Carolina census in 1840, and may have lived there before that date. The 1870 Cherokee County census tells that Thomas was born in Burke County, North Carolina. I found information on the message boards and in one of the volumes of Heritage of Cherokee County, that Thomas was the son of Amos Brown.
Our families are connected.
Elizabeth Flowers was the daughter of Andrew Flowers and Sarah Seabolt. Elizabeth married S. C. Brown 17 June 1855 in Fannin County, Georgia. Andrew and family were living in Gilmer County in 1850, but this area became a part of Fannin County when it was formed.
Elizabeth Flowers had a brother named James (Jim) Flowers, who married Mary Ann Brown. Did your Simon Brown have a sister named Mary Ann?
