The Brown Family

Part 2

John W. Brown, son of Hubbard Brown, first appears in the census in 1830 in Anderson Township, Hamilton County, Ohio. He was listed as age 20-30. There was a female, presumably his wife, age 20-30, living with him. There were two males living with him, one under age 5, probably Charles S. Brown who was born in 1827, and one age 10-15. The latter was probably not his son since he would have been born when John Brown was age 15 or younger. There was also a female under age 5 living with him. By the 1840 census, John Brown and his wife were listed as ages 30-40. In the household was one male under the age of 5, two males, age 5-10, and three females under the age of 15. They also had a male, age 20-30 and a female, age 60-70 living with them. The 1850 census and the 1860 census begin to help us put names and birth years to the children of John W. Brown:

The 1850 census shows John Brown, Sr.'s wife as Ellener (Eleanor) [Armstrong]. She must have died within the decade because, by 1860, the eldest female living in his household was Rachel, presumably his wife. Also living in the household were two males who were likely his grandchildren:

Jacob Brown, son of Hubbard Brown, married Harriet Bradford before 1830. By the 1830 census, he and Harriet were living in Anderson Township, Hamilton Co., Ohio and had a daughter under 5 years of age. By the 1850 census the family had grown to nine members, not counting a boarder, James Anderson, a wagon maker from Pennsylvania. This may be the same James Anderson who married Eleanor Turner in 1846, suggesting a tangential link between the Browns and Turners even before the marriage of Jeanette Turner and Elmore Grant Brown in 1890. Here is the list of children of Jacob and Harriet (Bradford) Brown as determined by the 1850 and 1860 censuses:

Isaac Brown, son of Hubbard Brown, was born around 1813 according to the 1850 census. He married Lucinda Dawson on Nov. 29, 1834 in Hamilton Co., Ohio. He and Lucinda probably had six children. Here are the last four as determined by the 1850 census:
