Hello, my Browns are from the Banks/Habersham/Franklin counties area of northeast GA. [near SC. border]. FTDNA, DNA results show them related to a family of Jernigans & Knowles [Knowles Bahamian on mother's side?]. Who do you trace your line of Browns back to? Who do you trace your line of Jernigans back to? I believe my Jernigans are traced back to Benjamin Jernigan Jr., who married Vashti Vann. My Browns are traced back to James Brown [b. 1724] & wife Catharine Fisher [b. 1727]. Would you like to exchange genealogy information?
