Hi, I'm not sure if your James Brown listed on Ancestry message boards is the same as mine, the only information I have is that he was in the Revolutionary War as a Private, Virginia Contential Line. His son was Thomas Brown, his son David Green Brown b. 1808 m. Celia Frederick, their son George Washington Brown b. 1841 m. 1st Nancy Lousan, m. 2nd Nancy Putteet, m. 3rd Martha Jane Floyd.
David Celia were born in North Carolina, married in Tennessee, lived in KY. That is where their children were born.
James would be my 5th great grandfather, but we were told he was married to a Esther Elliott, and Thomas married an Alsey Ellery. But as you probably know sometimes information can be wrong. This information was found at a deceased relatives home in the form of letters. If you could provide any information, please contact me at email@example.com
Thanks so much for any help.
