BROWN--I am doing research on Browns in Blount County. My great great grandfather was John M. Brown. He was doctor. It is thought that he was married several times - maybe 4 - with 19 children. Some are: Shepard, Henry, Samuel, Ben, Will (Wilson?), Mary J. I do not know names of the others. The 1880 census lists all of the ones above except for Henry and Ben. Henry was given away as a small child possibly because he and Shepards mother had died. In the 1880 census, John was married to Mary C. John was from Ireland.
