Searching for anyone who might be tied into my Brown line that comes out of Paulding County, Georgia. I know that William Brown was married to Nancy A. Davis Brown (daughter of Rev. Gary Davis I believe). Information from their tombstones at New Hope cemetery in Paulding County has that Nancy was born in 1827 and died in 1883. William was born in 1825? and died in 1863...in the Civil War.

I am listing information below on my g.g. grandfather (son of William & Nancy). Believe he had a brother named G.W. who married a sister to David Franklin Brown's wife, Sarah Jane Freeman Brown. Sarah was the daughter of William Andrew Jackson (W.A.J.) Freeman and Matilda Camp Freeman. G.W. Brown ended up in Lafayette, Georgia (Walker County) and have found some information on him, but since I'm not 100% sure G.W. and my David Franklin are brothers, I haven't included that data. I know there were other siblings...one possibly J.E. Brown who married a Sarah E. I have a picture from a cousin of their tombstone, but not sure where it is...though think it is in Paulding County, Georgia.
