  • Notes 
    • Name: Speculative /Brown/
      NOTE: George lived in Red River Co., Texas in 1850.


      Lamar County, Texas court record filed 11/29/1858. It appoints William Brown as guardian for Matilda E., Mary Ann and Georgian S. Brown, minor heirs of George Brown, deceased. The two surieties for the bond were Robert Caviness and Eli Smyers. (Could they be relatives?)


      By 1860, William Brown’s family looks like this in Lamar Co., TX:


      BROWN William 40 M AL
      Eliza, 41, F, TN
      Nancy, 18, F, TX
      Matilda, 15, F, TX
      Martha, 12, F, TX
      Elizabeth, 10, F, TX
      Jane, 7, F, TX
      Sarah E, 3, F, TX
      Margaret E, 1, F, TX
      (the following would be George Brown’s children)
      Matilda, 14, F, TX
      Mary A, 12, F, TX
      Geo Ann, 8, F, TX


      Autosomal DNA matches indicate that William’s family originally came from Blount Co., Alabama to Texas in the late 1830s. They were living in Wilkes Co., North Carolina in the late 1700s and early 1800s and in Pittsylvania, Virginia before that. However most of this is suggestive based on multiple triangulated DNA segment matches and could be incorrect.
