Daniel Brown 1815-1881 IN>IL m Naomi Cordelia Shields.
We are interested in finding more information about Daniel Brown, who seems to have been born in about 1814 in Harrison Co IN, and was married to Naomi Cordelia Shields, who was born in 1818 in Harrison County Indiana. Naomi was the daughter of Robert Shields and Naomi Littell. Naomi's sister was Sarah V. Shields, who married Alfred Brown. We don't know if Alfred and Daniel were brothers, and we don't know who Daniel's parents were. There are also connections to Fulton, McDonough, and Hancock counties in Illinois. We are happy to exchange information with descendants and other interested researchers. Please let us know if any of the following is incorrect.

** A PUZZLE:-----:
Daniel Brown and family are listed in the Federal Census of Canton, Fulton County Illinois
In 1850, a male child is listed as Frederick, age 05 years, born in Illinois
In 1860, a male child is listed as Frank P., age 15 years, born in Illinois
Frederick is not listed in 1860.
Frank P. is not listed in 1850.

I think that, somehow, the name was confused in the 1850, and that the child is actually Franklin Pierce Brown, born about 1845 in Illinois.

Neither Frank nor Frederick is listed with them 1870, but would have been 25 by that time, and perhaps married. Perhaps, at birth, the child was named Frederick (in homage to the Frederick Brown in Harrison Co IN), and, for some reason, a decision was made to change the name in those days before birth certificates?
