BROWN posted by Mary Sejkora on August 10, 2000

Looking for the parents and/or siblings of Permelia BROWN. According to her obituary, she was born in Palestine, Crawford County, IL on October 19, 1819. There is an Alexander BROWN enumerated in the 1820 Census for Crawford County and I believe this to be her father. If he is then Permelia had two older brothers. Alexander is listed as being between 16 & 26, as is his wife, so there were quite possibly more children.

Seeking information on Varnal DOOLITTLE born 1814 in NY to William DOOLITTLE & Hannah WILLISON. Varnal, his parents, siblings & his oldest children arrived in Crawford County, IL in about 1848. His siblings were Elvira, Wilson, William & Joseph. We are especially interested in his three or four wives as we don't know from which wife we descend. Possible names of his wives are Hannah SPRINGER, Ann LAMB, Elvira LEWIS & Ann (unknown). His childrens names were Lutellus, Lewis, Alvira, Almon, Wilson Shannon, Milan and Alva. We think Varnal died between 1873 and 1880 in Crawford County.
