Dave and Laurie,

This is many years after the fact (8 years), but I can weigh in on some of this info, I believe. The problem with the 1880 cencus, which is where the children of Casper (Charles is this Casper's middle name)Etling is that a son is listed with the name Levi W. Interestingly, that should be my great grandfather, Washington Morris Etling, Sr. His parents were Casper Charles Etling and Mary Elizabeth Brown Etling (according to a family bible, but it also lists her name as Mary Margret Brown Etling in another location). The 1880 cencus lists her as Mary. I am interested where the name Ann came from and we have a similar family story about Mary's relationship to John Brown, but as his niece. Now, the problem is, I cannot find a niece of John Brown, nor a granddaughter to Owen Brown, with that name. Recently I have been to the Hudson, OH library where they house a very thorough and accurate genealogy of the Brown family from past to present. I have found no clues to the parentage of this mysterious Mary Brown that is supposedly related to John Brown, yet. I am not sure if this is merely family myth, or if there is something I am missing.
