I am a decendant of (John)Wendell Brown by my mother Rosemary (Brown) Dabecco. John Brown is known to have been the first white settler in the territory that is now Fayette County with his sons Maunus, Adam, Thomas and possibly a daughter Catherine around 1751. Adam Brown served in the Virginia Regiment with George Washington. The Brown Farm was in South Union Twp. My grandfathers name is Wade Brown (1877-1972)
Great-grandfather is Noah Brown who is possibly the son of Issac Brown born to Issac(Skiles) Brown and Helen Moore. Maunus Brown
was married to a "Mrs Maunus Brown" as she is referred to in the Latter Day Saints files, born "about 1720" and has no record of death but married Maunus Brown in 1739 having one child Wendell Brown born 1740. We believe "Mrs. Maunus B. to be the daughter of Chief Nemacolin. We have been trying to trace our American Indian ancestry. Nemacolin was a Delaware Chief and migrated to the "Ohio Territory" via the Ohio River. Nemacolin was not a warrior chieftan and probably spent time with the Miamis in Ohio. Part of US Route 40 between Cumberland Md. and Redstone Creek at Brownsville Pa. was referred to as "Nemacolins Path" prior to George Washington creating th "National Road". We would like to trace the migration of Nemacolin and the Delawares. The Delaware (Lenni Lenape) Nation is now in Bartelsville OK. We would like to find the name of "Mrs. Maunus B." and find if she died and was buried in PA or left with Nemacolin. Family legend has her returning to the tribe after the French and Indian War. This would make her roughly 35 years old. Any information is appreciated.

My great grandfather was Edwin S Brown from Delaware County, PA. I know that there was Indian heritage there but very little is known. When I asked my grandmother about it in 1973, she told me to let it be. I have searched off and on since then and found very little. The heritage just isn't easy to trace on that side of the family and I suspect it is because of the tendency to disparage indian heritage and for those who "passed for white" to hide their heritage.

Your post was some time ago. IF you are still actively searching and have found anything, please send me any suggestions.

My family lived in the picturesque A. Brown Farm in South Union, Fayette County, PA from about 1948 - 1992. There is a large red farm house up on a hill and a red barn with a stone foundation with this on painted in the side: A Brown 1878. I have always wondered exactly who the original owner was and more about the farm. i ran across an article in the Uniontown paper, Morning Herald/Evening Standard, or perhaps it was called the Genus on Liberty back then, but it had an advertisement for the sale of pigs on the A. Brown on a farm in South Union. If anyone has any information about this historic farm and the Brown family who built it, I would greatly appreciate it! My cousin, Maureen Smithberger, lives on land adjoining it, but my sister, Linda Ruble, sold the farm Dec. 1992.
