Notes for Joseph Sr Brown:
 
This record begins with a short history written by Joseph Brown, when he was living in Wabash Co., Indiana and dated January 18, 1871.

      " I was born January1787, in the town of Lynn, County of New London, State of Connecicut.  My Fathers's name was John Brown. He was born in England.  His father's name was also John Brown and his mother's name was Betsey Abbott.  My father had one brother named Mike, and two sisters named Betsey and Nelly.  My mother's name was Eunice Robbins.  Her father's name was Elijah Robbins and her mother's name was Betsey Lovewell.  They were both born in New London Co. Connecicut.
      My parents were both from Lynn, near the mouth of the Connecicut River where it flows into the Atlantic Ocean, north of Long Island Sound.  My father moved from Lynn when when I was a year old (1789) to Suffield in the northern part of Connecticut.  After three years he moved to Springfield, Mass. and stayed there seven years, then moved to what is called the Unidella, a wildeness, in New York State.  In the country were deer, bear, wolves, wild cats, coons, foxes, martins, fish, otter, muskrats and some beaver.  Indians were plenty civalized and great hunters.
      Rachel, my wife, was born in the year 1798.  She died March 18, 1847.
            These lines are engraved on her tombstone:
                  With heavnely weapons I have fought
                  The battle of the Lord.
                  I have finished my course and kept the faith,
                  and won the sure reward.
            Put down in remembrance of my father and mother and my grandfathers and grandmothers"
            Added: Rachel was a Seneca Indian.  Her grave is on the Seneca Indian
                          Reservation at Salamania, Cattaragus County, New York.
