My mother was Bertha Beatrice Adaline SCHOUGGINS from Hixson TN She married Wiley Wilbur BROWN from Decatur TN. The SCHOUGGINS all spell their last names different but my grandmother which was Nona Elizabeth JOHNSON said her fathers last words were always remember the correct way to spell our name that is our history. The SCHOUGGINS name is a German name often pronounced VANSCHOUGGINS in Germany. My grandfather's name was Jessie James SCHOUGGINS.
If anyone has anything they can add to the BROWN or SCHOUGGINS history please contact me I don't know much about my dad's side of the family.

Thomas BROWN was born ca 1779 PA. He married 23 Oct 1800 in Adams County, Ohio, Sally SMITH born ca 1780 PA.

Living next door in DeKalb County, MO, and later in Madison County, IA, beginning 1850 are the BROWN brothers, John b. 1807, James b. 1809, Thomas Vensen / Vincent b. 1816 and Hezekiah (called Kioh) b. 1831. Also a married sister, Frances (Fanny) SHEPARD / SHEPERD / SHEPHERD & her little daughter, Sally SHEPARD.

Thomas BROWN died in September 1859 in Lee Township, Madison County, Iowa.

The families of Thomas & Sally (SMITH) BROWN are originally from the old Cherokee Nation in GA, and moved north through TN, KY, etc. to PA and eventually West through Champaign County, IL, and DeKalb County, MO, and finally into Madison County, IA.

Can someone help find the rest of the siblings & where in PA did Thomas & Sally live before moving to OH in 1800?

Where in PA were the Cherokees in 1779? Who were the Cherokees helping in 1779? Just thought I'd ask!!!

I recently obtained an old photo of a cousin at her father's grave in or near Chattanooga/Lookout Mountain. I had thought that he was buried in the National Cemetery in Chattanooga, but this photo does not appear to be at a national cemetery due to the tombstones in the background. The cousin was Dovil "Dovie" Rebecca (CROW) MOON 1889-1942. Her father was John Henry CROW who died in Chattanooga in 1903-1904. There was said to have been a tombstone shaped like a locomotive engine near his grave. He had worked at the railroad yards there in Chattanooga.
