In Reply to: David Brown 1743-1822 Chatham, NJ by Harriet Rockwell of 779

Madison New Jersey Presbyterian Church Vital Records 1747-1900. p.34: Brown, David d. Aug 2, 1822 in 79th year. [buried in Hillside Cemetery]; wife Mary, d. Oct 23, 1813 in 62nd year., stones adjoin widow of Silas Byram and Joseph & Mary Day.
daughter Clarissa d. Oct. 18. 1813 in 19th year. [She is buried in Hillside Cemetery.]

p. 38: BRUEN, BENJAMIN [member of the Church] C. March 20, 1801, contrib. 1793, '94, '95, '96, collector 1803, trustee 1829-31, d. Jun. 29, 1849 [buried in Hillside Cemetery] aged 80; wife AURENTIE HARRIS [member of the Church] C. March 20, 1801, F.C.S. 1814, d. May 24, 1843, age 73. [buried in Hillside Cemetery] [more information inc. children are listed in text.]

p.101: Day, Joseph, Chatham Comm. 1824, d. Aug. 18. 1832 age 58 years 5 mo., 22days; [buried in Hillside Cemetery] wife Mary, F.C.S. 1814, d. Jan 27, 1837 age 61years, 5 months, 19 days. [She is buried in Hillside Cemetery.] in plot with David Brown family and Silas C. Byram.

p.55: Byram, Silas C.; widow Nancy (Anna)d. Jan 5, 1848 in 64th year. [Buried in Hillside Cemetery.] (in same group with David Brown & Joseph Day family.)

Information given above are direct quotes except that in [ ] which I added to explain additional marks in the original text.

John Littell's First Settlers of Passaic Valley
Silas Condit Byram, (6th child of Naphali) and Nancy Brown had children:
1. Ebenezer who married Sarah Hand.....
2. Amy married Eli Tomkins...
3. Henry married Anna Searing of Spring Valley, Morris County...
4. Mary married her cousin, Nathaniel L. Byram, son of Ebenezer...
5. David married Delia Bishop...
6. Jonas, who went on a whaling voyage, and never returned.
7. Frances married _________,...
8. Silas Pierson.
Silas C. Byram and his wife both died, and are buried at Dayton.

Thaddeus Day, (1st child of Paul Day) and Susanna Parcel, had children:
1. Joseph, who married Polly Brown, and had children:
i.David, who married Ellen Britton, daughter of Stephen, live in Newark.
ii. Louisa married Smith Gold, above Morristown.
iii. Aaron married Abirgail Baldwin, daughter of Stephen, of Cheapside.
iv. Caroline married Osborne Hedges of Hanover.
v. Eleceta married Mr. Reeves of Cheapside.
vi. Harvy P. married Miss Baldwin of Cheapside.
vii7. Mary married Stephen Foster of Rensellaer.
2. Catherine....
3. Paul ...
4. Charles Thompson...
5. Henry Parcels Day was blind, he died at about 30 years.
6. Electa...
[i through vii are children of Joseph per Littell.]

p. 124 Caleb's name is given as CALEB DICKERSON (3rd son of Philemon) and Matilda Brown who had 9 listed children.

I could find nothing in Littell's relating to your David Brown or a Richard Brown, though there is a note that "Thompson Brown who married Patty Wade, daughter of Andrew, of Morris County,...removed to Westfield and owned a large distilling establishment there. He left his wife and children there, and went to Ohio."

There is no Richard Brown mentioned in the Madison Presbyterian Church records.

On p. 35 on the Madison Church records there is a:
Brown, Jedocia., d. May 24, 1802 in 25th year.
Brown, Lutitia, b. July 15, 1811, died Oct 29, 1875.
Both were buried in Hillside Cemetery. Neither were members of the Madison Church and neither are linked to any family in the Vital Records.

Hope this helps.
