Birth: Dec. 8, 1821
Wayne County
Indiana, USA
Death: Mar. 18, 1909
Wells County
Indiana, USA

Daughter of Philip Brown and Julie Ann Taylor
Wife of Charles Alberson
Mother of eleven children: John, Joshua M., Elizabeth, Henry, Philip B., Kathryn, Nancy, Samuel, Julia A., Dennis and Jacob.

While living in Jay Co., In. at the age of fourteen, her and her dog, chased a bear up a tree in the cornfield, near the house. Obadiah Winters was notified, and on coming over, found two or three families gathered around the tree to see the sport. Some of them begged of him not to shoot the bear in the head, as they had heard that a bear's skull would turn a bullet, and then the animal would come down and kill them all. But Winters aimed at the head, and the bear fell harmless at the roots of the tree.
