Henry Brown m. Rachel Ranes ca. 1780

Hezekiah Brown lived in Marion Township, Fayette co., Ohio; he migrated to Ohio from Frederick Co. VA circa 1820, after having served in the war of 1812. Hezekiah Brown, died Jan. 20, 1875 at age 85 in Fayette co., Ohio.
Hezekiah Brown’s death record lists his parents as Henry Brown and Rachel Ranes. The marriage of Henry Brown to Rachel Ranes ca. 1780 is inferred from the death record. Would like more information on this marriage and the origins of Henry Brown and Rachel Ranes (they lived in Frederick Co., VA ca.1810). Is there a marriage record? In Virginia or another state? Ireland? Scotland?
R.S. Dill’s History of Fayette County, 1881, pp. 897-98 lists sons of Hezekiah Brown as Hezekiah and Benjamin. Hezekiah Brown m. Marey Williams 27 April 1823, Fayette Co. Ohio. Mary died 1883. Would like to connect with descendants of Hezekiah Brown.
