I have a William D. Brown (b.1833), son of Travis B. Brown and Sarah Crossfield, who married Elizabeth Gudgel (1827-1887), daughter of Elijah Gudgel and Lydia Ann Bell.
They married in 1854 in Anderson Co., KY (Marriage Book B, pg. 176). The surety was George W. Kavannaugh. Minister was J.H. Walker.
5 known children were born of this marriage:
Jacob Madison-1855
Susan M.-1856
Sarah Elizabeth "Babe"-1858
William Buttler-1859
Amanda Jane-1861

I think this is your William D. Brown. Do you have a date of death for him? I have lots of information on these GUDGEL's and would love to discuss more with you. My big question is in the fact that Elijah GUDGEL(L)'s family bible was purchased from his estate sale by his daughter, Elizabeth (wife of William D. Brown). Would love to know what happened to it. Elijah died in 1866 in Anderson Co.

I wasn't aware that William and Elizabeth were in Danville, Boyle Co., KY. Please tell me more. BTW, where are you and what is your last name? Please email me at:
Thanks for the post.
