I am looking for any information regarding my gggrandparents Staten Brown and Dicy Coffield.
I have a copy of the Death Record of a Wesley Brown who died Dec. 7, 1911 in Pearl Twp., Pike
Cnty., Illinois. He was buried on Dec. 9, 1911 and place of burial was Green Pond. Wesley Brown
had been living in Pike Cnty., for 60 years at the time of his death. The name of his father was Slater
Brown who was born in Virgina and name of Wesley Browns mother was unknown. The informant
was W.B. Brown.
My gggrandfather Staten/Slater/Slaten Brown was born about 1799 in North Carolina, Tennessee
or Virginia. My ggrandfather William Wesley Brown was born Jan. 9, 1823 in North Carolina.
Staten Brown and his family moved from Halifax Cnty., North Carolina to Rush Cnty., Indiana
during the early 1830's. Staten Brown married Penny Ruby on Feb. 6, 1845 in Rush Cnty., and the
family moved to Madison, Jefferson Cnty., Indiana. Sometime in 1850 the family moved to Pike
I can't find a trace of Staten Brown and his family after 1860 with the exception of William Wesley
Brown. Does anyone see a connection with these two families? I would appreciate any info. on
either family and will share with others. Thank you.
