I only put the pic of the front gates not the names in the cemetery. Because it is a fed. cemetery, they take care of that.

Braddock Brown Dickerson in Herkimer County NY same time as Charles Brown.
This is from about 1999 Genforum

In Reply to: Braddock Dickerson (b. circa 1825) by Robbie Giles of 3603

Information you need is in:
"Dickerson & Dickinson descendants of Philemon Dickerson of Southold, Long Island, N.Y." Published 1978

by Wesley L. Baker, 212 Park Lane, Douglaston, L.I. N.Y. 11363

Braddock Brown Dickerson, born 1826, Herkimer Co. NY, married Mary Melissa Griswold dau. of: Hubbard Griswold (1798-1859, buried at Belcher Cemetery, Lee, NY), Oneida Co. NY. and had eight children: born (1852-1874) Franklin Eugene, George Orin, Cora Mabel, Lena Marie, Mary Eliza ("Lill"), Frederick Nathaniel, William Henry, (they all married), and Bradford Braddock, 1874-1876, (buried Traer, Iowa, as are the parents..)

My grandmother Mary Eliza (Dickerson) Estabrook, also born in Tama, Co. Iowa, is a sister to George.

I supplied data to that book published by Mr. Wesley Baker. If we are lucky, he is still living, and you could get a copy.

Much of my rather complete family data (to the 1950's) was compiled by a double cousin of my father: Ethel Estabrook Wheat. I have a photocopy of her rather extensive work, continued from her mother's efforts Cora (Dickerson) Estabrook.

Naturally I will be glad to share info and work together on filling in missing data. Where should we start?

There are some apparent mix-ups in the Hubbard Griswold info. especially since there is a second Hubbard Griswold, also born VT, 1804, who apparently settled in Dansville, Western New York state. I could use some collaboration on that. Our Hubbard Griswold married at least 3 times, about 8 children, first six by Mary Powell (end of data for her). Family was also known for a time as "Griswell".

Dickerson/Brown connection
Hello Doug, I have been waiting 13 years to hear from someone with knowledge of the Brown/Dickerson families of CT/NY. It has been my theory, as often was the case in 1700-1800's the Dickerson-Brown families were related and possibly cousins. If you read the history you also will note marriages between my Brown's and the Christian and Lockwood families.

Our earliest Brown we know history of is Charles Brown who married Ann Christian about 1800 and lived in German Flatts and then Mexico, Herkimer/Oswego County, NY.

His father is believed to be a "John Brown" born about 1753. Unfortunately, in the early 1900s his history was mixed up with the history of John Christian 1753-1835 who was in Revolution and he married Jane Brower.

Charles Brown was born in CT or NY about 1774 and died April 13, 1861 in Owasco, Cayuga County, NY where he lived from at least 1833 until his death, after Mexico, NY.

He and Ann had 11 children. The older children lived in Oneida County and were married and two died and are buried in Hall Cemetery, Lee, Oneida County, NY.

My Dad claimed we were related to a Peleg Brown. Others say, John Brown, father of Charles Brown 1774-1861, was married to an Indian lady in NY.

I have hit a roadblock as to Charles Brown's parents, but you have given me clues to the Dickerson family line that I can research. Thank you.

My email is listed and you can email me, if you wish.

Burial record
I have over 5,000 burial records for the Neodesha area. His was one of them. I have entered over 4,000 Findagraves, mostly in the Neodesha City Cemetery. I am working through the list to add birth and death dates to my memorials I made and to possibly like relatives. Unfortunately most of the records do not list spouse or children, but almost always the parents. This is especially useful when it says his parents were ...Jones and ...Smith. Then I can enter the Find A Grave for the mother and add her maiden name. I gave the originals to the library in Neodesha and they can research for people with it. I built a database and Gene Ewert there tied the pictures of each burial record to the database so all we have to do is click a box and up pops the record.

I have updates his memorial with records from the funeral home.I would love to transfer him to you. Just go to the edit and request it. Unfortunately he ingested poison due to poor health at his home. He may have been teaching chemistry in the high school there. I can send you a copy if you use my email on my page.I connected him with his father in Woodlawn but no DAG there for his mother.

I found the info in a Yates County listing of interments. Family Bibles are usually an accurate accounting, however, so I have changed the memorial to reflect this new information. Thanks.
