James Wade Brown/Bucks Co./early 1800s

Need information on family of James Wade Brown who was born on 5/22/1810 in Bucks Co., PA. He died on 12/24/1886 in Baton Rouge, LA. James was evidently trained as an architect and builder. He was in Baton Rouge as early as 1846 and may have come to work on the construction of the state capitol. He worked on that building and by 1850 perhaps left Baton Rouge for a stay in New Orleans. By 1854 he was again in Baton Rouge and remained there until his death in 1886. James married and had about a dozen children. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
