States: Virginia: Fauquier
This may be a good clue. I hadn't found a Thaddeus Browne anywhere. I did find a Rodham Brown in the Fauquier County VA Tax List in the area of Rattlesnake Mountain (the Southern District) that borders Culpeper Co, VA. My speculation has been that perhaps "Thaddeus" wasn't Rhody's father's given name; they often went by their middle names or a nickname instead. Once I found Rodham/Rhodham, Ken Gray and I began to speculate that perhaps he was Rody's/Rhody's namesake and somehow related to Thaddeus. If Thaddeus lived in Henrico but was related to the Culpeper/Fauquier Brown(e)s, that would create a bridge for Jesse and Rody meeting.
My ancestor is Charles' sister, Virginia P. Gray who married Edward Nicols/Nicholas Williams ("known as Nick").
