Thanks so much for the info! I am continuing to try to find out what connection this family has to the Browns.
As an additional piece of information, I have located the Browns in Pennsylvania--they were just across the state line from Broome County-- in Buckingham, Wayne County, PA, in the 1870 and 1880 census years. It appears that William Brown and several of his siblings came to Pennsylvania shortly after coming from Ireland in 1864 (at least that is what he indicated on the census form, rather than the 1857 that was handed down in a family history from his daughter). They came at different times, but many of them were there by 1870. His parents, John and Margaret Brown, also emigrated and were living with him in the 1880 census.
The family evidently attended a church at Lake Como (would have been Protestant, but not sure which denominations were there at the time), as I have found the baptismal information there for William and Rosetta Brown's first children (twin boys) in 1879. They came to Broome County between about 1886 (birth of youngest child) and 1900 (first appearance on the census there). Oh, for the 1890 census <sigh>!
I am in the process of trying to slog through the 1870 census for Broome County (no index available at Ancestry.com that I have found yet--do you know of any?) in search of Warners who might have the daughter Rosetta. Given all the connections and proximity, it seems the most likely place to look first.
