Simon Brown
Posted by: Michael Brown (ID *****3687) Date: January 09, 2007 at 16:29:28

I am looking for information on the Brown's that lived in Cherokee County, NC and also in Monroe County, TN. The specific Brown's are Simon Brown, wife Margaret, Leonard, James, Nancy, Esther, Emanuel Monroe and Neil Bery. This family in living in Beaverdam, Cherokee County, NC in 1870 and 1880. Several of the family are living in Monroe County in 1870 and 1880 - Leonard Brown, wife Elizabeth, Sarah Adeline and John. John Brown married Martha and Rachel Leming and Nancy Jane Stewart in Monroe County. Emanuel Monroe married Ellen Mills and they live in Monroe County in 1870 or 1880 also. I think Nancy Brown married a Peter Costner in Monroe County and Sarah A. Brown also married a Costner in Monroe County.

Simon and family also can be found in the 1860 Gilmer Co, GA census. Simon and Margaret had the following children that I know of: Leonard, James, Nancy, Ester (married a Pace), Susan Adeline, Emanuel Monroe, and Neil Bery. It appears that this family moved from NC to Georgia in about 1850 and then moved back to NC and Tennessee after 1862.

Before 1860 I find a Simon Brown in Buncombe County, NC that is between 20-30 and has small children. I am thinking that this might be the Simon I am looking for. Also, In posts to this County, I find a D. Morgan Brown that has a son born around 1809 or 1810 named Simon. I am wondering if my Simon and the son of Morgan are one in the same.

If you have any other information on this family, I would greatly appreciate your help.
