Bio Photo Daughter of Nolan and Kathleen Blazzard Lee. Husband's parents are Floyd and Mary Crawford Hoffman.

....Brown continued....
Could Ezekiel Brown be of Melungeon descent? Do any of your families have dark brown hair, skin and eyes? My family does! I am wondering if Ezekiel changed his name to "Brown" ??? I know that there has been some studies of Melungeon ancestry, and one of the families mentioned is the Browns from Virginia, southward and through Appalachia. Just a thought....

Crawford Brown
My 2nd great-grandfather was George Jackson Brown, an uncle of Crawford Brown. Sure wish I could find out who Ezekiel Brown's father was...and his mother. There have been several guesses, but I can't find anything on this particular Ezekiel, except some census records and a guesstimate death. I have looked EVERYWHERE, from old, old books in Virginia to freaking Georgia! LOL! Hope one of you "cousins" out there in the void can help with this information. :o)

Hi Laura, I see that you are a gg grand daughter of Crawford Brown. I am a gg grand daughter of his too. Do you mind me asking what family member you are related by? His daughter Josephine was my great grand mother who passed a few days after giving birth to her daughter Josephine in 1907. Dee

Fred Callihan, Sr's crypt is located directly above Fred, Jr's crypt, so I photographed & posted it also.

I have McSpadden on my tree so working Thelma tree back it run in to my Grandmothers tree. Cora 4 great grandfather Thomas McSpadden 1721. Cora & Charles is on my grandfathers McEwen tree. Its a small world
