Rodham T. (possibly Thaddeus) Brown and Frances Bruce are very likely the parents of Rody Brown(e), b. abt. 1802, who married Jesse Gray in Fauquier County, Virginia, 23 Mar 1818, Charles E. Brown(e), Minister (possibly related). The marriage bond gave the names of Rody's parent(s) as Thaddeus.

Marriage Record, Jan. 17, 1801, Bedford Co, VA: Rhodham T. Brown & Frances Bruce, dt David; William Bruce, Surety; Married by Jeremiah Hatcher, Jan. 20, 1801.

The 1810 Census finds this family in Bedford, the 1820 census finds them in Amherst and the last census in which they are found is Franklin Co. in 1830 where Rodham and Frances are the only members of their household.

I would love to have more information about this couple and a Will would be more than I could imagine finding. If anyone has any helpful information about this family, I would greatly appreciate it.
