The Brown Family



Info:

I have not 100% documented Hannah Brown with her father Oliver, except that Isaac Bliss was living next door to Oliver in Lake County OH in 1850. After that, everything is documented in a book about Stonington, CT Vital Records. There is a wealth of information still in there and I will try to get more out of it. For now, if you have anything to add to this, please let me know.

This side of the family starts with Hannah Brown married to Isaac Bliss

Because of logistics, I will only put direct relatives in this chart, maybe later I will add more and more census info. You will need to be able to read PDF formats so if you can't do that, download the program for free using the button provided at the bottom of the chart.

_______________________________________________________

July 1, 1696: James Brown, son of Eleazer and Ann (Pendleton) Brown, born Stonington, Connecticut.

He married Elizabeth Randall, May 5, 1718, by Rev. James Noyes, of Stonington. She was born July 4, 1696 and died August 25, 1786, age ninety-one years. Internment in Brown Cemetery. His wife, Elizabeth, was the daughter of John Randall and Abigail ___, whose family name and birth does not appear on record. She was the granddaughter of John Randall, the progenitor of the Randall family of Westerly, Rhode Island and Stonington, Connecticut. His name first appears at Newport, Rhode Island from which place he came to Westerly as early as 1667, where the remainder of his life was spent. The Randall land was about four miles northeast of Stonington Borough, known as Angwilla and considered the finest land of the town. These lands join on the north the lands of Thomas Brown, and have been in the Randall name as late as 1875. These farms now, in 1906, are mostly owned by Elias Miner and his sons. The Randall families were highly respected and progressive, ranking high in moral character, and prominent citizens of the town.

The Randall land was about four miles northeast of Stonington Borough, known as Angwilla and considered the finest land of the town. These lands join on the north the lands of Thomas Brown (2), and have been in the Randall name as late as 1875. These farms now, in 1906, are mostly owned by Elias Miner (1164) and his sons. The Randall families were highly respected and progressive, ranking high in moral character, and prominent citizens of the town.

THE BROWN GENEALOGY, Vol. 2, by Cyrus Henry Brown, pp. 241.

It must be remembered that when James Brown was born the country was in a primitive state, almost a vast wilderness. His father, Eleazer, with his axe, had begun to let in the sunshine in a few places, and to stir the virgin soil and scatter a little seed, making an opening for future settlers. James Brown built his house on lands first set off to his father, Eleazer (11), on the most beautiful situation of any of the lands purchased by the three Brown brothers. This house built by James Brown was located opposite what is now the Union Cemetery. The compiler remembers the old, old house from 1840 to 1845, which soon after was torn down. It was a one-story house, fronting south, with east end fronting the country road. The house and barn were built of native lumber, sawed at the mill erected by his father, and assisted by the older son, Jonathan and James, the subject of this sketch. The barn fell down before the house was pulled down.

The house contained but four rooms on the first floor; there might have been an attic. The compiler was in and out of these during five years of his boyhood. The house stood on a gradual sloping plateau, affording a most picturesque view for miles around. The land is rich and fertile. The father of the compiler hired the land for a number of years, and on the same the compiler worked for five years. After the house was removed, the well covered, and grounds cleared and leveled off, there was not a thing to show the spot where these illustrious children were born.
