Family Bible

Descendants of William Brown

 

Much of the information on this family was received from Clint & Wanda Joyce, 9400 W. Pebble Brook Lane, Garden City, Idaho 83703-1760 clint@pureblend.com 208-853-0817 Fax 208-853-8835 and Evelyn J. Brown, 409 North 17th, Manhattan, KS 66502 in May 1997. The information on names, dates of birth and death were found in a family Bible in the possession of Jessie Moon of Portland, OR at the time of her death. I do not know who now has the family Bible. I personally have not searched out the original sources for much of this information.
