Birth: 1725
East Dunbartonshire, Scotland
Death: Nov. 10, 1800
Washington County
Pennsylvania, USA

My 6 x Great-Grandfather William Brown "Billy Brown the Scotsman," was born in Luss, Dunbarton, Scotland.
He married Christiana Thompson(1729-1805) in 1749 in Scotland. They, along with their 5 children came to America, landing in Philadelphia in 1772. Their children were, George, William, Christiana D., Margaret and Anna.

Following the route of Braddock's Army they reached their destination in Western Pennsylvania and settled in a Scottish Settlement in what is now Washington County, Pa. The home of William Brown the first was on Peter's Creek. He is buried at Peter's Creek Presbyterian Churchyard, Venetia, Washington Co, Pennsylvania. He died in Brownsville, Pa. in 1800 at his cabin along Peter's Creek.

His wife, Christiana then went to live with their daughter, Margaret and son-in-law Samuel Barber in Turtle Creek, Pa.

Four of their children came to Middlesex Township, Butler County, Pa. before 1800. Six generations or more of William Brown's family have made Middlesex their home.

He was buried at Peter's Creek Presbyterian Churchyard in Venetia, Washington County, Pennsylvania. Now known as Brush Run Cemetery
