BROWN OVERVIEW

We are in the early stages of locating our Brown ancestry and much work remains.  Tentative links have been established between the many Brown's in the area of Granddad Robert Brown based on less than high confident data.  The fundamental problem stems from Granddad Brown death at a young 28 from an accident.  After obtaining a death certificate, we were able to not only identify his parents but locate his burial site.  The link to his parents provided some insight to the links between Granddad Brown and the other Brown's in his area.  The below contains the most current information as of 1/29/01.  Please note that weak links are identified with the (POSS) designation indicating a possibility.
