Kathie, we seem to have some similarities. I descend from Jonathan Brown (m. Phoebe Carman). His son was Jordan Brown who was born April 1, 1809 in Hardin County, KY. They also had a daughter, Phoebe, and son Caleb. After 1810, they removed to Maury Co. TN, and then back to Hardin County where Jordan married Lydia Alexander abt 1829 (I have exact dates, but not w/me). They were in Coles/Cumberland County abt 1831, and were neighbors of Thomas Lincoln. I don't believe Jordan went to Indiana, but could have passed through. I don't know what happened to Jonathan & Phoebe Brown. Jordan supposedly had 2 brothers who drowned while crossing a river on a wagon in TN. Names not known. Do any of these names sound familiar? If you think we might connect, just e-mail me directly. I'd be happy to exchange info.
