Father of General Jacob Jennings Brown and original settler of Brownville, NY. How they arrived...

Having completed the cabin and cleared some land, [Jacob Brown] sent to his parents [Samuel and Abi Brown]and family in Bucks county, Pennsylvania, the news that all was ready for their coming; and on May 27, 1799, they came, by way of the Mohawk, Oneida lake and Lake Ontario, all much fatigued by their long and tedious journey by land and water, but rejoiced at last to reach "home," though but few of their former comforts of life surrounded them in this vast, unbroken wilderness. The good old Quaker mother is said not to have smiled until more than six months after her arrival, but she never otherwise showed any feeling of discouragement, and did not complain regarding the family misfortune. The companions of the pioneer on his first journey to the settlement were two men named Chambers and Ward, and he was also accompanied by several employees as boatmen or guides, who were not recalled as settlers. In the Brown family who came in May were Samuel Brown and his wife, parents of the pioneer, also Christopher, John (afterward judge), Joseph, Mary (Mrs. Newland), Benjamin (the pioneer of Le Ray), Samuel (Major Brown), Hannah (Mrs. Skinner), William (who was drowned in Lake Erie during the war of 1812) and Abi (Mrs. Evans). Also one of the party was George Brown, a kinsman, and his sons Henry and Thomas Brown. In addition were the boatmen and servants, in all numbering about twenty persons.
