Hello - any chance there would be a Robert Brown Sabula IA, Jackson county in that
directory. There is a Robert Brown (father) married to Catherine and the son Robert
Brown married to Mary. Senior died in 1871 and son died in July 1878 - drowned in the
Mississippi River. Know it;s a long shot, but you never know. Thanks Marge in Washington
