165 Phillip Brown (abt. 1758-1848)

Jacob Brown's fifth child, Phillip Brown, was born about 1758 in Rowan County, North Carolina.

There he married Rebecca Baker on March 1, 1790, and had two sons?David and Thomas. Rebecca died at some point between 1793 and 1796. Phillip moved with his father's family to Washington County, Tennessee, and he there married Catherine Slyger, daughter of John and Catrina Slyger, on December 20, 1796.

They were reportedly slaveholders. Phillip and Catherine lived in Washington County, Tennessee, for several years but emmigrated to the Liberty, Indiana, area in the early 1800's.

In 1813, they settled in Ohio, eventually becoming some of the first settlers in Neave Township, near Greenville, Darke County, Ohio.

They lived on an 80 acre tract of land and it is also said that Phillip was the founder of the Mennonite Church (now the Christian Church) in Darke County.

He was reported as being "a leading and useful citizen; his house, which was a hewn-log structure, was considered above average, and was used for several years for church services."

He and Catherine had several children from about 1797 to 1821, among them: Julius, Betsy, Benjamin, Caleb, Jacob S., Eliza, Malinda, Henry, Mahala, Adam, Rebecca, and Barbara A. He died on February 28, 1848, in Neave Twp., Darke County, Ohio.

His will, dated Feb. 2, 1848, indicated that all his property was to go to his wife for her lifetime, then to his sons Henry and Adam for their lifetimes, and then to be divided among his grandchildren.

On May 20, 1856, a Petition in Chancery was filed by his son-in-law James Marqueth against Catherine Brown, Phillip's widow. The settlement divided the property among thirteen different Browns. Catherine spent the remainder of her days living with her son Henry and died in 1860 of old age after an illness of six days.  
Brown, Phillip (I2719)
166 Phillip Brown says in his Rev. Pension application, I was born 22 Aug 1744 in Scituate RI and enlisted there (In the RI militia). In 1783 I moved to Hoosick in Reneselaer Co. NY for 20 years, then I moved to Northampton (township) in Montgomery Co. (later became Fulton Co.) NY for 8 years then to Warsaw in Genesee Co (later became Wyoming Co.), NY . He applied there in 1837 at the age of 92. Brown, Philip (I3857)

172 Queen Mary I of England. Reign: 1553-1558; The only child of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon to survive infancy. She was called Bloody Mary because of a large number of religious persecutions that took place during her reign. Tudor, Mary (I4196)
173 Queen of England. She was a strong, healthy child and escaped the taint of congenital syphilis which afflicted Henry VIII's other surviving children. Her mother Anne Boleyn's disgrace and execution led to Elizabeth being declared illegitimat e by Act of Parliament and deprived of her place in the succession before she was three years old. A later Act reinstated her and the kindness of her stepmother Queen Catherine brought her back to court where she shared the tutors of her half-brot her Edward, becoming proficient in Latin, French, Italian and some Greek. She also had some leanings towards the Protestant faith, although by no means committed at this time. She was the last of the Tudor rulers of England. Her reign: 1558-1603 ; At the death of her half-sister, Mary I, in 1558 Elizabeth became Queen, beginning one of the greatest reigns in English history. From the beginning of her reign, Elizabeth's marital status was a political concern because there was no English he ir to the throne. Parliament insistently petitioned her to marry, but she replied with the statement that she intended to live and die a virgin. She became known as the Virgin Queen. Her statement did not prevent her from toying constantly with th e idea of marriage. She was besieged by royal suitors, each of whom she favored when it was in her political interest to do so. Her affections, however, were bestowed on a succession of favorites, notably Robert Dudley, 1st Earl of Leicester, Si r Walter Raleigh and Robert Devereux, 2d Earl of Essex. Tudor, Elizabeth I (I4199)

Of Suffolk origin, the Southwells acquired Wood Rising through the marriage of Richard Southwell's grandfather and namesake, Member for Yarmouth in 1455. His father, an auditor of the Exchequer, was a younger son, but on the death of his uncle Si r Robert Southwell, a friend and servant of Henry VII, Southwell succeeded to a considerable estate. Early in 1515 his wardship was sold to Sir Robert's widow, Ursula Bohun, and William Wotton, but four years later it passed to Sir Thomas Wyndha m who presumably arranged the marriage of his ward to his stepdaughter, a sister of Thomas Darcy, later 1st Baron Darcy of Chiche. In the later part of this time of his wardship he lived with the family of his cousin, Henry Howard. In 1534 and 1535, through the influence of the Howards, Sir Richard served as Sheriff of Norfolk. Nothing further is known of Southwell's educatio n and upbringing until his entry into Lincoln's Inn, where he retained chambers as late as 1545, when already of age, but his family had long been clients of the dukes of Norfolk and it is possible that he was brought up in the ducal household . He seems to have been well educated for when put in charge of Cromwell's son he is said to have personally instructed the young man in pronunciation and etymology.Southwell was placed on the commission of the peace in 1531 but in the same yea r he was involved with two of his brothers in the murder of Sir William Pennington and in 1532 he was obliged to pay £1,000 for a pardon which was later confirmedby Act of Parliament (25 Hen. VIII, c.32). Cromwell seems to have helped Southwel l in this affair and by 1535 he was one of the minister's trusted agents in East Anglia. It was to Cromwell's patronage that Southwell and his younger brother Robert owed their advancement in augmentations. Southwell was particularly active in th e Dissolution, although his conservative sympathies appear in his appeal of Mar 1536 on behalf of Pentney priory. During the Pilgrimage of Grace the Earl of Surrey reported to his father the 3rd Duke of Norfolk that he had taken counsel from ‘m y friend Mr. Southwell’ in the raising of forces in Norfolk. Southwell's career in the Commons may have begun with the Parliament of 1536, when he would have been a likely successor to Sir James Boleyn as one of the knights for Norfolk if the disgrace of Anne Boleyn had involved her uncle's exclusion fro m the King's general request for the re-election of the previous Members. At the next election Southwell and Edmund Wyndham were returned for the shire on the strength of a royal nomination, although not without a challenge from Sir Edmund Knyvett ; the resulting quarrel brought both Knyvett and Southwell before the Star Chamber and led Southwell to complain to Cromwell at being made to suffer for doing his duty to the King. In the event both men seem to have been consoled, Knyvett by bein g pricked sheriff in 1539 and Southwell by his knighthood. The damaged state of the return for Norfolk in 1542 leaves one of the names illegible, but as Southwell was a signatory of the Act for an exchange of lands between the King and the Duk e of Norfolk he was probably the knight concerned; if so, he again sat with his younger brother Robert, returned for Surrey and knighted at the opening of the Parliament, as he had done in 1539 and perhaps in 1536. After the close of the first ses sion Southwell was sent to view the fortifications of Berwick and his appointment to an embassy to Scotland in Jan 1543 probably made him miss at least part of the second session. Neither brother is known to have sat in Henry VIII's last Parliamen t, although one or both may have done so for a borough whose Members’ names are lost; that Richard Southwell was passed over for Norfolk could have reflected the county's desire for a change. Between the close of Henry VIII's reign and the accession of Mary, Southwell's propensity for time-serving brought him little reward. His part in the destruction of the Earl of Surrey may have owed something to the personal friction between the m during their service at Boulogne, but it was essentially a move to ingratiate himself with the King and the rising house of Seymour, to which he was related by marriage. Named by Henry one of the assistants to the executors of his will, Southwel l was brought on to the Privy Council by the Protector Somerset on 12 Mar 1547. As a Catholic and a sheepmaster, however, he had little sympathy with the Protector's religious and social policies: by Jul 1548 he had been put off the full Council , being bracketed with the ‘assistants’, and in the following year he joined other conservatives in an alliance with the Earl of Warwick to overthrow the Protector. Southwell did not long maintain his restored position and when Warwick turne d on the conservative party he was committed to the Tower and fined £500 ‘for certain bills of sedition written with his hand’. He sat in neither of Edward VI's Parliaments but as a Privy Councillor he signed Acts for the restitution of Sir Willia m Hussey and for the fine and ransom of the Duke of Somerset during the third session of the Parliament of 1547. Southwell also signed the limitation of the crown in favour of Jane Grey and his name appears on a list thought to be of those expected to support her, but in the event he rallied to Mary who gave him charge of her armoury and restored him to th e Privy Council.He attended its sittings regularly until Dec 1555 after which he seems to have retired into Norfolk until early in 1557 when he resumed attendance. A supporter of Bishop Gardiner, he was described by Renard as the prime mover of th e plan to marry the Queen to the Earl of Devon, and Sir Nicholas Throckmorton was to recall at his trial hearing Southwell (one of his judges) speak against the Spanish marriage in the Commons. He was returned for Norfolk to the first three Parlia ments of the reign, taking precedence over his fellow-Councillors Sir Henry Bedingfield and Sir John Shelton. As a Councillor, it was probably he rather than his younger brother who was the ‘Sir R. Southwell’ appointed to the committee to determin e whether John Foster and Alexander Nowell were eligible to sit in the Parliament of Oct 1553 and to whom on 28 Nov 1553 the bill for the confirmation of letters patent was committed on its second reading. A year later, on 26 Nov, the bill for sed itious rumours was committed to him and at about the same time, when the Queen was supposedly pregnant, he is said to have burst out in the Lords: Sir Henry Beddingfield ‘Tush, my masters, what talk ye of these matters? I would have you take some order for our young master that is now coming into the world apace, lest he find us unprovided’. He carried two bills to the Lords on 17 Dec 1554. His subsequent disappearance from the Commons may have been due to ill health or to a loss of favour at court or of influence in his shire, where both the knights in 1555 were men of Protestant sym pathies. Southwell was not reappointed to the Privy Council on the accession of Elizabeth and in Jul 1559 he surrendered his offices in exchange for an annuity of £165. He had added considerably to his inheritance, making full use of his opportunitie s as a surveyor and receiver, and by 1546 held over 30 manors in Norfolk alone. The succession to his property was complicated since Sir Richard was to father two children by Mary Darcy, while still married to Thomasine Darcy, her aunt, and while she was married to the Norwich alderman Robert Leeche. It was not an uncommon pr actice for men of power to keep a mistress, and Sir Richard was a man of power. If Sir Richard was a friend of Henry VIII, renown for his philandering ways, we can presume they may have had similar ideas. Sir Richard, did, however, marry Mary foll owing the death of his first wife. This is suggestive that the first marriage was an arranged, loveless union, and that he and Mary were in love. Following their marriage the couple had at least three more children. The heir male was thus Thomas, son of Sir Robert Southwell. Southwell had settled lands on his elder son Sir Richard, as early as 1545 and in his will of 24 Jul 1561 he made no distinction between his children on the score of legitimacy. The onl y child of his first marriage, Elizabeth, was married to George Heneage and the only child born after his second, Catherine, was then the wife of Thomas Audley of Berechurch, Essex. Southwell bequeathed over 10,000 sheep to members of his famil y and left his personal armour to his ‘cousin and friend’ Sir Henry Bedingfield and other armour to the young 4th Duke of Norfolk, whom he named an executor: despite his betrayal of Surrey the 3rd Duke had appointed Southwell an executor of his wi ll of 1554. Although he had not had the strength to sign his name in 1561, Southwell survived until 11 Jan 1564 and his will, to which he had added a codicil on the day of his death, was proved on 22 Jun by Norfolk, Sir Thomas Cornwallis and Franc is Gawdy. Several portraits of Southwell survive. It appears by the account of Ambrose Jermyn, Esq. in the 37th of Henry VIII, that he was lord of the following manors: Woodrising, Cranworth, Butler's, or Boteteur's in Letton; Whinburgh cum membris; Westfield, Skoultom, Carbroke, Woodhall, Carbro ke Magna, or the preceptory manor, with the impropriate rectory, &c.

192 The 1860 Waupaca County Wisconsin, Lind Township census shows the following record: J.F. Brown, 51 b. NY Marion O. 47 b. NY Jos. R., 25, b. PA John W., 21, b. PA Chancey B. 18, b. PA Judah, 16, b. PA Susan M., 13, b. PA Richard U., 11, b. PA Anna M., 9, b. PA Maud A., 6, b. WI If the age given for Judah in the census is correct, then his birth year was actually 1844 and not 1838 as listed in family records. The census also shows Richard, Anna and Maud as children, while no mention of them is given in family records, although there are children in the family records, not listed in the 1860 census. This could be attributed to the children being old eno ugh to have established families of their own, and being listed elsewhere in the census. The 1870 Waupaca County Census shows for this family: John F. Brown, 61, b. NY Marien 57, b. NY Joseph R., 35, b. PA John W., 31, b. PA Richard L., 21, b. PA Anna, 19, b. PA Maud A., 16, b. WI The 1850 Erie County Pennsylvania, Greenfield Township shows Family Number 98: John F. Brown age 41, a Shoemaker, born in N.Y., Value of Real Estate: 400 Mariam age 37 Rittner age 15 Amy age 13 Wesley age 11 Polly age 9 Chauncey age 8 Judah age 6 Susan age 3 Henry age 1 The 1840 Greenfield Township Erie County PA Census shows this same family: John F. Brown age 30-40 Males under 5: 1 Males 5-10: 1 Males 30-40:1 Females under 5: 2 Females 20-30: 1 Noted immediately above this family in the 1840 census is a Judah Brown, aged 60-70 with a spouse of the same age having 1 male aged 5-10, and 2 males 20-30 in the household. Brown, John Fuller (I145)
193 The 1900 Census of Civil District 1, McMinn County, TN shows Mira Doss, born in November 1854, unmarried, living with her widowed mother Jane, sister Nancy and brother John.

T.J. Richardson lived in and around District 1 of McMinn County, and just over the border in Monroe County most of his later life. It is likely this is the same Elmira Doss he married after his 1st wifes death in 1900. 
Doss, Sarah Almyrah (I2373)
194 The death certificate for James states that on the word of his daughter, Jennie Lea Beever, James was born in McMinn County, however other records, and the fact that his sister was born in Loudon County, make it more likely that James Madison Ric hardson was born in Loudon County, Tennessee. One difficulty in researching this family is that they largely lived in the area known as District 1, Monroe County, TN. In this area, the counties of Monroe, McMinn, Roane, and Meigs all join one another. It is not uncommon for families in thi s area to be counted in more than one county during a census, or missed altogether. Richardson, James Madison (I37)

There exists a stone monument to Jesse in the Lewis Cemetery in Raybon, Georgia, although Jesse and his wife are buried along with an infant daughter in unmarked graves near his ol d home about five miles away. Served as Justice of the Wayne County Inferior Court from 1825 until 1829. Served as Justice of the Peace, Wayne County, 1833 until 1837. Also served in the Georgia Militia from 1825-1829. Lewis, Jesse (I21)

Arterburn was guardian for Elizajah (Elbert Matthew), Nancy J., Jame s G., Mary E., George A., his own children, for money received from Enuch Grooms, deceased, dated 4/10/1869. In September, 1873, received: $28.75 plus $7.70 interest which came to $34.45 minus $9.25 service fees of the court. A total of $28.20 wa s received.

197 The family is listed in the Kentucky Genealogy and Biography, Volume II. Kingery, William (I2438)
198 The first and only appearance in public records of the name, "Peter Atturburn alias Williams," was apparently an arrest at the direction of Charles County Court, in 1736, probably for indebtedness to John Parnham, who is identified in "Early Colonial Settlers" as a merchant. No further record of court proceeding can be found, so an out of court settlement may have been arranged.
Peter attested in court (1748) that about 11 years prior he was shown the "Nonesuch" property boundaries of/by John Gardiner, which appears to place Peter at Gardiner's about 1736/7.
In 1743, Peter was sued in Charles County Court for indebtedness by Richard Gambra, with no mention of servitude. The court awarded Gambra his due in pounds of tobacco. 
Arterburn, Peter (I2392)
