Brown Family History - Bedford, Virginia ~1790
Posted by: Scott Conrad (ID *****0789) Date: December 01, 2009 at 10:01:18

I have hit a brick wall regarding the Brown Family of Bedford and Franklin, VA:
I need help determining information regarding at least 2 generations of the Brown family prior to Wyatt Brown. Here’s what I think I know:
Lemuel Green Brown’s father was Wyatt Brown. Lemuel’s facts are: B: 1849 in Franklin, VA; D: 1899 in Franklin, VA; M: Ann Marilla Saunders in 1873 in Bedford, VA.

Wyatt Brown (B: 1814 in Bedford, VA; D: July 1893 in Franklin, VA) married Jemima Hatcher in 1835 in Franklin, VA. After this, I’m in a fog because of conflicting dates – not sure if next 2 subsequent generations researched are really separate or if one or the other is simply incorrect.

Conflicting research indicates:
Wyatt Brown's father was Daniel Brown [Born: ?; D: 1834 in Bedford, VA; M: Martha J. Snider in 1802 in Bedford, VA (Martha Snider: B: 1781 in Bedford, VA; D: 1844 in Bedford, VA)]

Daniel Brown's father was also Daniel Brown [B: 1770; D: 1817; M: Mary "Polly" Hancock" in July 1803 -- this marriage date does not track since it falls after birth date of son, Daniel (Mary Hancock: B: July 1770 or 1784 in Bedford, VA; D: 1848 in Bedford, VA)].

Can you help me determine if both of these relationships are in Wyatt Brown’s direct line and what the correct dates (and names) should be?

Thanks, in advance,
