These are the Browns in 1860 Maury Co., TN that were born in 1800 or before.

There must have been something in the water. I am impressed by the longevity of these folks. Note that Duncan Brown was 89, born in 1771. He was the oldest.

I have no known connection to these Browns. Just trying to helpful. I was searching for the identity of the Elizabeth E. Totty, wife of William W. Totty in the 1870, 1880, and 1900 census of Hickman Co. Brown was a name they passed on to their children. William Totty was in Maury Co. with his son Robt C. Totty in the 1910 census. William and Elizabeth's daughter M. N. Brown married John Ferrell. She is called Magnona Brown. She may be the Maggie Ferrell in the 1910 census of Maury.

Would appreciate hearing from anyone with information.

He served 1824 as Deputy Grand Master when President Andrew Jackson was the Most Worshipful Grand Master; and in 1825 was elected Grand master and was re-elected in 1826 and continued to serve until 1827.

Matthew D. Cooper was the youngest of thirteen children and not six years old when his father died which may account for the fact that none of his children were named after his father Capt. Robert Cooper.

Mary Agnes Frierson Cooper died in May of 1834, leaving him with four children ranging in ages from fourteen to five. That same year he dissolved the company of Cooper, Caruthers & Co. on June 6 and shortly thereafter he entered into a partnership with an English cotton merchant by the name of Chapman, forming a banking and brokerage business in New Orleans. On July 7th of the next year he married Elizabeth Jane Frierson, a cousin of his first wife who was twenty-seven years his junior. The marriage lasted three years as she died with consumption when she was but a few days past nineteen. Her only child, Flavel Frierson Cooper was born on March 16th and she died on October 17th of 1838.

After the death of his second wife, Matthew Cooper established another commission house in 1839 under the name of M.D. Cooper & Co., the company being Duncan Brown Frierson (1807-1863) and George O. Sweet. This firm continued until it was brought to an end by the depression of the Civil War. Matthew Cooper continued to keep his home in Columbia where he was also a member of another mercantile firm, but had also established a residence in New Orleans and he commuted between the two as did his children and servants.

The next year after buying "Mulberry Hill", he married Marian (called Mary Ann) Witherspoon Brown, the daughter of the famed Rev. Duncan Brown. She was only nineteen and thirty years his junior. He was a successful business man with businesses in Tennessee and New Orleans. He had one of the most beautiful homes in the country staffed with countless servants and some hundred slaves who lived on the prosperous plantation. He was respected and honored by all who knew him. He had a total of 14 children; William Frierson, Edmund, Alfred, Jane, Henry, Mary Agnes, Flavel Frierson, Martha Ann, Duncan Brown, Alice Jane, Addison, Emma Sweet, Eloise, and Fannie Cooper.

History of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America, Volume 2 By E. H. Gillett

In 1810, Duncan Brown,1 who for eight years had been settled over the churches of Hopewell and Aimwell in South Carolina, followed Stephenson to Maury county, within the bounds of which, although in charge of different churches, he continued to reside until his death in 1861. For a time he labored at Bethesda and New Hope, afterward at Bethesda, Newport, and Bethany, and subsequently at Columbia; although his missionary excursions extended through Middle Tennessee and Northern Alabama. Shortly before his arrival in the Held, Matthew Donald took charge of Mt. Tabor, Joseph B. Lapsley of Tennessee and Gallaher's Creek, and John McCampbell of Shunem, with which Washington subsequently formed a joint charge. A few years later (1814) we find David Weir pastor of Hopewell and Westminster, and Thomas H. Nelson of Knoxville. At this time the Presbytery of Union consisted, besides Donald, Nelson, McCampbell, and Weir, of Eamsey at Grassy Valley, Anderson at New Providence, and Coffin at Harmony.

Meanwhile (1810) the Presbytery of West Tennessee was erected, and consisted shortly after its organization of Stephenson, in charge of Zion congregation, with which Cathie's Creek was subsequently united, Blackburn in Maury county, whither he removed in 1810, although in the following year he took charge of Nash

1 Dr. Duncan Brown was born in Robeson county, N.C., in 1771, and studied theology with Dr. David Caldwell. He labored in Maury county as a missionary and stated supply for many years.
