Birth: Dec. 2, 1829
Worcester County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Nov. 24, 1880
Franklin County
Massachusetts, USA

Schedule 1 of the United States Census enumerated at Warwick, Franklin County, Massachusetts on 22 August 1870 by Edwin M. Alexander reported service by the Northfield, Massachusetts, Post Office. Listed in that Census was an Israel C. Brown, age 40, suggesting a birth year of 1830 in Massachusetts. Listed with him was 33 year-old Rhoda Brown, keeping house, and six children from age 1 to age 19. However, ten years earlier, in 1860, Israel C. Brown was listed by another enumerator as a Free Inhabitant occupied as a Farmer in Warwick, Franklin County, Massachusetts, age 28, birthplace New Hampshire, with a female companion, Goeada Brown, age 21, and three boys, ages 3, 2, and 1, the youngest being Freddie. John Brown, age 52, was listed on the neighboring farm.

Israel Curley Brown was my great grandfather. There is confusion in the description of two possible men because the dates were actually twelve years apart not ten in the census (it took a span to complete them I guess). Rhoda was what Zorada Shepardson went by... a nickname. Zorada was spelled totally wrong in the second younger description.... transcribed incorrectly by the enumerator or whatever they called them then. He was born in 1830 and died in 1880. John was related. Margaret Fairman Seever
