Brown family


Biographical Note

James Cartmill Brown was born in 1828. Brown was a farmer in Montgomery County, Virginia. About 1851, he married Ann Elizabeth Thomas (b. abt. 1831). They had at least six children: Mellie (Mollie?) (b. abt. 1854), John C. (b. abt. 1857), D. Howe (b. abt. 1859), Florence E. (b. abt. 1864), Robert L. (b. abt. 1867), and James M. (b. abt. 1872). Brown died in 1913.

Thomas Brown was probably James Cartmill Brown's brother, but it is unclear if this is Thomas W. or Thomas M. (both are mentioned in the collection). A number of items relate to Annie E. Barnett, but her connection to the family is unknown.
