William Brown
Your Rev John Brown
We have traced our Brown family back into the Shelbyville, KY area (close to Frankfort) in the early 1800's. Prior to that we resided in the Richmond, Henrico County, VA area where my Wm Brown, Revolutionary War Veteran was born in 1755. It has been suggested by Alan Simmons a certified genealogist out of Nevada that we are descendants of your 5th great grandfather who was interred in the Frankfort Cemetery in 1803.

Have you taken a Family Finder DNA test yet? If not, would you be willing to take one to verify your degree of relatedness to the allied families of your Rev John Brown? This is a now a very inexpensive test and can be very helpful in furthering your research and verifying the possible connections of many others to your Rev John Brown's line. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

The Browns
Hi! Russell: Well, JR and Patty Blanton (JR aka Paul Brown) finally got to meet baby triplet, Paula Brown at Ormes/Rosemount near Portsmouth, OH.

JR's 2nd triplet sister, Judy Blanton Marshall (Paulette) died after 7 heart attacks and 2 strokes - last one got her) on 11 Oct 2015. She was cremated, and her ashes are now in FL, OH, KY and NC! Find A Grave Memorial# 153513441

JR visited his Dad for the 1st time:
DELBERT BROWN @ Friendship Cemetery, OH
Find A Grave Memorial# 64139172
We planted Judy's ashes and a beautiful purple Mum plant!

And then he visited his baby triplet sister:
Find A Grave Memorial# 71977236
where we had a lot of trouble finding her. The caretaker helped us, and he documented with a cemetery map in a book where she resided since 1946! The reason nobody could take a photo before was, there was no plaque or monument. JR and I are fixing that now. We have a company in Portsmouth on it!

Now, neither are "all alone" (in different cemeteries).

THANKS, belatedly, for helping us find these two special people in JR's life.

Yours truly,

Coolidge Carpenter
I thought that I'd let you know that you have the wrong person for the son of Tipton Carpenter and Katie Bell Thomas. Thanks to Ancestry releasing more info on the SS info, which tells some parents. This Coolidge was the son of John Carter Carpenter and Vina Henry. Our J C Carpenter was born Dec 15, 1925 and died Nov 17, 1998.
