Tennessee, USA

This memorial is dedicated to my fifth great grandfather John Jacob Brown.
He was the son of John and Maria Barbara Crowl Brown
He married Magdelina(Mary)Louisa Gunner about 1813. Mary died on October 16, 1847 and was possibly buried on their farm in Vigo County, Indiana. As of this date the farm has not been located.
During the war of 1812 John took his own team and served as teamster. One day as John was driving along, a soldier asked him to take a package on his wagon, which he did, and for which he was court-marshaled and his team was confiscated, but was subsequently restored to him.
After the war John ran a boat on the Mississippi river. John and his son-in-law, (now believed to have been Edward Woollen) took a trip to Tennessee to buy bricks to build a new home when both took cholera and was buried together in one grave.
John died in 1833,the August probate lists Hetty wife of Tomas Green, Elenore wife of Henry Davis, Eliza wife of John Walden and Anna oldest child, wife of Edward Woollen listed in probate of his father and John's widow Mary mentioned.
He was the father of Ann, Hetty, Eliza, Mary, Eleanor, George W, Sarah, Angeline, Nancy and Noah.
