It has been dificult to discover the ancestry of Laura Rice. Her death certificate and a birth certificate for one of her children both suggest she was born in Conneticut. With this information I searched the 1860 census for that state and discovered only one Laura Rice that was close in age to our Laura. The following is the family of Levi & Mary Ann (Hack) Rice of Granby, Hartford County, Conn. page 34, Family 275:
Levi Rice, 46; Mary Ann, 38; Sheldon, 17; Louis (Lois?), 15; Allan, 11; Mary, 9; Nellie, 7; Jennitte, 5; Hattie, 4; & Laura, 7/12 mos.

Further, from Avon, CT Vital Records we find a marriage for Levi, of Barkhampsted, and Mary Ann on Nov 16, 1842.

Laura & Harrison Shorey had Arthur, Elwood(my wife's grandfather) & Edmond.

Laura & Joseph Swim hadFrederick, Henry & Holland.

I also found this obit for a John Brownlow but I don't know it's for the correct person. Pembroke lost one of its oldest and highly respected residents in the death Tuesday, Feb. 21st, 1939, of John Brownlow, at his home, in his 93rd year. He had been in failing health for some time. He leaves to mourn a widow, and six children. Mrs. Tilley Parker {Ella}, Northampton; Mrs. John Patterson {Ethel}, Newburg; Mrs. Earl Moody, Houlton; Arthur Brownlow, Ludlow, Maine; Allison Brownlow, Redding, Calif.; Zenas, at home; one sister, Mrs. Moses Shaw, Wakefield. His youngest sister, Mrs. Ella J. Eaton, Lakestive, Washington; predeceased him the 4th day of September, 1938. He leaves 25 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren. The pallbearers were six grandsons, Charlie, Donald, Douglas, William, Lewis and John Patterson. The funeral was held at Pembroke, on Thursday, the service being conducted by Rev. Mr. Stiles of Jacksonville. The Bugle, Woodstock, NB, Friday, February 24, 1939.
