Eli's history really answered some of my questions.
James Brown was the son of Samuel Brown and Rachel Van Valkenburgh, like I suspected.
Samuel and Rachel's children must have been Jane, b.abt 1811, Polly, b.betw.1810-1817,
James, b.1818, Nelson, b.betw.1823-1826, Rensselear, b.1825 and maybe Philetus, b.abt
1828. In 1850, Philetus was living with Simion Richmond and Jane Brown. In 1870,
Rensselaer's son Martin Brown was living with James Brown. James Brown married Susan
A. Wilbur and had 3 children: Mary Jane 1841-1930, Alice S. 1849-1913 and Hannah,
Yes, I would be interested in what Turck writes about the Brown's.
