Dec. 1687 at home of her daughter
LYDIA & husband JAMES BROWN

with her in the Mayflower Dec. 1620
From them are descended a
numerous posterity.

In ELIZABETH'S Will the following inspiring language is used
"It is my will and charge to all my
Children that they walke in ye Feare
of ye Lord and in Love and Peace
towards each other."

[Back of Marker]:
This monument erected by

Part of a cluster of Browns, including:
Elizabeth Tilley Howland (whose daughter Lydia married James Brown)
Lieutenant James Brown
Margaret Brown
Anna Brown (d. 2 Jan 1753)
Samuel Brown
Eliphalet Brown
Lucy Brown
Benjamin Brown (d. 13 Mar 1727)
Sarah Brown (d. 4 Jan 17[]8)
Rachel Brown
Annarita Brown (d. 1 May 1794)
Jesse Brown
Sarah Brown (d. 9 June 1746)
Benjamin Brown (d. 29 Oct 1754)
Kezia Brown
And another grave marker for a woman, clustered between Browns that is broken and has had the top part removed. All that can be read is "of her Age. In her Character shone with luster, all the christian moral and social virtues."

There is also a Nathan Brown in a place apart from this cluster of Browns who is buried in the middle of Richmond graves. His grave is of the same design and language as this set of graves, even though the location is different.
