searching for descendants and ancestors of john and family. wives are dianthe lusk (not luck) and mary ann Day (not little). there were 20 children born to him and his wives and only 11 reached adulthood with 3 dying as a result of his raids and 2 not marrying. Owen and his three wives gave him 16 children. his father John and Hannah (owen) only had five children. there are 36 known ancestors to john and hannah. the common link is Mary Eggleston. daughter of James and Hester (nee KELSEY) williams.

John Brown is a cousin of mine on the Owen side of the family. You will find his Owen ancestry in Stiles, Ancient History of Windsor (CT), Vol 2. If you can't find it let me know and I will try and furnish as much information as I can.

I am a descendant of Capt. John Brown and Hannah Owen, through their daughter Roxana Brown. John, the abolitionist would have been an uncle or cousin of mine.

Does anyone know any info on John Brown Jr.? I have a picture of my grandfather George Brown and he looks exactly like John Brown Sr. Also my gr-father's grandfather was a John Brown married to a Eliza (Mumaw) not sure of spelling. They lived on the now famous John Brown Farm in the 1800's not sure of exact date. PLEASE feel free to e-mail me @ bcelmer@nauticom.com Thank You

Brett, do you have a relative of John Brown by the name of Rachel? Rachel's death cert. lists her father as Hezwkiah Brown and Judett (Judith ?) Duncan as her mother. Other family members who remember Rachel tell me that she claimed to be the sister of John Brown the Abolitionist. Two cousins look almost identical to a picture of him I found on line. To date, I have not been able to find any proof of this claim.

My GGGgrandmother was Mary (Polly) Brown who
was married to John Powers. She had sisters
Nancy and Abigail. By reading their letters
they were cousins of John Brown. We have never been able to find the relationship.
Can you help?

I am a descendent through Ruth Brown, John and Dianthe's first daughter. She married Henry Thompson. My grandfathers grandmother is their daughter, Ella Thompson. Ella married Henry Towne. Their daughter is my great-grandmother, Adelaine Towne. She married John Clausen. My grandfather is their son.

My grandfather is 93 next week and very knowledgable about the Brown family. He has taken us to visit Osawatoomie, their home in Pennsylvania, the library in Ohio, Harper's Ferry and the grave near Lake Placid. Ella, my grandfather's grandmother, remembers John Brown, her grandfather.
