George  and  Margaret (Conrod) Brown  Descendants
and
George  and  Hannah (John)  Descendants



1. Brown, George b. 22 Jun. 1766, Hampshire County, VA (now Hardy County, West Virginia), d. 21 Spt. 1825, Rush Co., IN, son of Thomas & Mary (Ball?) Brown.  George m1, 8 Spt. 1786, Hardy Co., WV to Margaret "Peggy" Conrod, b. ca 1786, d. ca 1802, likely buried near their farm along Cabbin Creek, Mason Co. (now Lewis Co.) KY, d/o of John Conrod/Coonard of near Moorefield, Virginia.

Ref:  Some references list the wife of George as Rebecca but every daughter of the first marriage names a daughter Margaret and every son, except one, names a son, George. The only Rebecca named was the daughter of George & Hannah (John) Brown who was named Rebecca Barbara Brown, probably named after her maternal Grandmother Barbara (Evans) John.  The name William or John or William John is used by each of the children who had descendants except by Joseph Franklin Brown.  The name Singleton is used frequently.  The name Ryland is seldom used.

Ref:  Mr. W. O. Shriner, author of "The Cuppy Family History" wrote that George Brown was named for his Grandfather George Ball of Philadelphia.  Is there a George Ball of Philadelphia that can be connected to Mary Ball?  If so, he would have probably lived between 1710 to 1770.

Ref:  Another problem that persists is the birthdate of George Brown.  Most references, including the Thomas Brown Bible Records, list his birthday as 22 June 1766, while others joining the DAR list his birthdate as 22 June 1760, the birthdate given to George's brother, Daniel who died early in life when shot by indians.  It is felt that the 22 June 1866 birthdate is correct and that the 22 June 1760 birthdate was substituted in order to join the DAR.  Becoming a Sergeant at such a young age was highly unusual.  It is possible that we have the wrong George Brown but we haven't been able to prove it.

Ref:  Clermont Co., OH land transactions, pg. 272-73 - On 14 Mar. 1808, William Lytle and Eliza N., his wife, of Clermont Co., OH transferred to George Brown of Lewis Co., KY, pg. 272-73:
"Consideration of $315.00, 175 acres of land in Clermont Co., OH located on the head waters of Cross Creek or Twelve Mile Creek plus a tract of land adjoining containing 157 1/2 acres. Witnesses:  William Todd; R. W. Waring, J. P."

Ref:  Clermont Co., OH land transactions, pg. ??? - On 10 Spt. 1808, James Buchanan of Clermont Co., OH, transferred to George Brown of Clermont Co., OH:
"Consideration of $10.00, 93 acres of land located in Clermont Co., OH, Virginia Military District, surveyed for Lipscomb Norvell on the waters of Big Indian Creek sold to James Buchanan for taxes on 13 Apr. 1805 by John Carlisle, collector of nonresident lands. Witnesses: Jacob Waterfield, Silas Sargent.  Land title must also be weak as James Buchanan
sold it without recourse to himself by George Brown."

Ref:  Clermont Co., OH land transactions, pg. 354 - On 17 Spt. 1808, James Buchanan of Clermont Co., OH, transferred land to George Brown of Clermont Co., OH:
"Consideration of $13.00 for 340 acre tract being part of tract of 1000 acres (survey #1716) of land surveyed for Robert Lawson Jr. and laid off for George Brown on the east fork of Bullskin Creek, Lewis Twp., Clermont Co., OH in the Virginia Military District. Mentions adjoining land owner, Peter Simmons, John P. Shingles, Witness: Silas Sargent, Jossemcny Simoinns. The land must have a defective title because James Buchanan gave up only his interest in the land with the understanding that there would be no recourse to him by George Brown. James Sargent, J. P."

George Brown purchased 160 acres of land from the United States Government on 14 October 1820. The land was located in the SE 1/4 of Section 14, Twp. 12 North, Range 10 West.  This transaction is recorded on page 42 of the Rush Co., IN land transactions located in the Recorders office, Rushville, IN. (We do not have the record of the land being sold.)

Ref:  Sketches of Rush County, IN, edited by Mary M. Alexander & Capitola Guffin Dill, Jacksonian Publishing Co., Rushville, IN, 1915, pg. 83:
"Brown, George, b. Hardy Co., VA, 22 Jun. 1760, d. Milroy, Rush Co., IN, 21 Spt. 1825. George served as sergeant in the in Captain J. Valentine's Co. 1st VA Regiment and commanded by Colonel George Gibson during the Revolutionary War. Ref. DAR No. 5313. He md. 8 Spt. 1788 to Rebecca Conrad. Descendant -- Mate Power Jay (Wm.)."

Ref:  Rush County Sesquicentennial History Edition, 1822 - 1972, pg. 50:  Mentions George Brown as a known Revolutionary War soldier buried in Rush Co., IN. A reference is made to a George Brown drawing a Revolutionary War pension in 1840 and that his grave in Richland Twp. is marked with a government marker.  (This could have been a pension drawn by Hannah, wife and widow of George Brown). -- Check!!

Ref:  Joseph Franklin Brown's 5 pg. history states that George and Margaret moved to KY after marrying in 1786.  George was a soldier in both Harrison's and St. Clair's defeats, at Wayne's victory and in the War of 1812. Margaret died in 1800 and in 1804, George md. Hannah Johns. During 1808 George and Hannah moved to Ohio and later in 1821 to Indiana.  George died on 25 Spt. 1825, Rush Co., IN. George was born 22 Jun. 1766, Hardy Co., VA.  He served three years in Colonel Gibson's _____ Virginia Regiment during the Revolutionary War and was present as was his Father at the surrender of Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown on 18 Oct. 1781. A land warrant was issued to him signed by Patrick Henry, Governor on 19 Mar. 1783.

Ref:  Atlas of Rush Co., Indiana, J. H. Beers & Co., Chicago, 1879, Richland Township History. -- Mentions that George Brown along with others settled in 1820 and that George was the father of several sons, two of whom have been distinguished; W. J. Brown, the lawyer, became a
prominent and successful politician; and R. T. Brown, the popular physician, now occupying high rank among philosophers, philanthropists and scientific men.

Ref:  Will of George Brown, dtd. 21 Spt. 1825, proven 20 May 1826, located in Will Book 1, pg. 27, Rush Co., IN Courthouse, Rushville, Rush Co., Indiana:
          "Be it remembered that I, George Brown of Richland Township, Rush County and State of Indiana, being weak in body but of sound and perfect mind and memory, blessed by Almighty God for the same, do make and publish this my last will and testament in the manner and form following:  First, I give and bequeath unto my beloved wife, Hannah Brown, all of my freehold estate lying and being in the township, county, and state above mentioned, to have and to hold with all the privileges and appurtenances thereunto belonging during her life,

Dear Madam:
We are in receipt of your favor of the 6th inst., with enclosures, and we hand you, herewith, contract duly signed. We think that nearly all the heirs have executed similar papers, but it does not seem worth while to press the cases for trial now, for the reason that President Cleveland at the last session of Congress vetoed the bill which provided for the payment of such claims.  As he will doubtless do the same thing so long as he remains President, we have reason to believe that the Court of Claims will not set such cases for trial.  We think we shall have to await another President, and the development of another line of executive action.

Very truly yours,
Dudley & Michener

Ref:  The Greenfield Hustler, Greenfield, OK, 11 Jul. 1918 --
          Louisa Fitch was born in Hendricks Co., IN on Jan. 1, 1841, and was married to A. M. Nash on Oct. 22, 1862.  To this union seven children were born, four of whom are still living. These are Everett Nash of Kansas City, MO, Ross Nash of Tacoma, WA, and Mrs. Edna Geeslin and Mrs. Stella Funk of Pleasant Valley. There are 19 grandchildren.
          She passed to the great Beyond Tuesday, July 2, 1918, and the funeral occurred Wednesday from the Christian church at Watonga conducted by Rev. Johnson of Enid.  At the special request of the deceased six granddaughters acted as pallbearers.
          Mr. and Mrs. Nash came to Oklahoma at the opening of the Cheyenne and Arapaho country, settling on the farm in Pleasant Valley where they resided until about two years as they removed to Watonga.
          Mrs. Nash united with the Christian church at the age of 16 years, and remained a faithful member until claimed by death.  She was ever ready to assist the sick or needy and many are they who have cause to appreciate her kind and neighborly ministrations.
          The family desire us to extend to the friends their sincere thanks for the many acts of assistance and the sympathy manifested during the illness and death of the beloved wife and mother.

YES, MOTHER LEFT FOR HOME
(Contributed in memory of Mrs. A. M. Nash by Mida Behan (Ida Lehman)

How many hearts were aching
And eyes were filled with tears
When came the time to sever
The friendship of many years
Her work on earth was finished
Time for reward had come
Who loved her most was hard to tell
When Mother left for Home.

In time of pioneer distress
They called her everywhere,
To help in any time of need
All sorrow she would share.
In sympathy how oft she spent
Those sleepless nights, so long;
No wonder hearts were aching
When Mother left for Home.

You say, "Whose Mother was she?"
They claimed her one and all.
Her Mother-love extended
To old and young and small.
She cheered the weary traveler,
Caressed the helpless babe,
Cared for the lonely orphan
E'er Mother Homeward swayed.

God blessed her work with many years
Her ripe and golden age
Was crowned with happiness and bliss
To Heaven an honor page
When parting days were drawing nigh
She bade her loved ones come
And hearken to her last sweet words;
Then Mother left for Home.

Ref:  The undersigned, being duly sworn, under oath makes the following 1895 statements concerning my ancestors upon my father's side from records now in my possession, from my knowledge, and from information handed down from my ancestors and relations.

My Grandmother, viz., my father's mother, was one Hannah (Brown) Nash who was born Sept. 8th 1787.  She was married to Thomas Nash in 1808, and died on the 13th of Dec. 1865.

Hannah (Brown) Nash's father was one George Brown who was born on June 22nd, 1766. He was twice married; first to Peggy Coonard, in 1786; his second marriage was to Hannah ??? in 1804. He died Sept. 21, 1825. His mother was Mary (Ball) Brown who was married to Thomas Brown in 1754.  Mary (Ball) Brown died in Clearmont County, Ohio, near the town of
Bethel, on Jan. 24th 1816.

My father, son of Hannah (Brown) Nash, was one George B. Nash who was born May 27, 1809. He was married Feb. 3, 1833 to one Elizabeth McDaniel. My father, George B. Nash, died March 3, 1864, at Prairie City, McDonough County, Illinois. My mother, Elizabeth (McDaniel) Nash,died Nov. 1, 1887, at St. Joseph, Missouri.

Of this marriage of my father and mother there were born the following named children:

L. Cord, who died at St. Joseph, Missouri, as hereinbefore stated died intestate. I, being duly sworn to testify to the truth of the foregoing facts, speaking from the original Bible record as the the birth, marriage, and death of my father, and as to the births, marriages and deaths of his children, and from information received in the family and family writings concerning earlier dates and facts stated. {This document was not signed but is suspected to have been written by Asa M. Nash.}

Ref: Ltr. dtd. 28 Sept. 1922, Kansas City, MO from Granddaughter Cleo May Nash to Mr. A. M. Nash, Greenfield, OK --
Dear Grandfather,
          Now don't have apoplexy or a brain storm because I am writing you -- I'll admit I am very negligent when it comes to writing letters, but you know how that goes.
          How are you getting along anyway? How are all of the typhoid patients, here's hoping they are improving considerably, as the hot weather you have in Oklahoma is hard enough on a person who is well and possessed of the proverbial nine lives, let alone one suffering from fever.
          Aunt Mary Nash just called me over the telephone. It seems that they are reviving the claim on the Joseph Ball property in Philadelphia, and have succeeded in getting together a number of claimants who are very much interested; but before presenting the claim, it is necessary to eliminate several obstacles -- it seems that it isn't clear as the the exact location of the property. Aunt Mary was under the impression that you received one of the newspapers covering the claim when this proposition was up a number of years ago, and has asked that you search for this paper and any other information you may have concerning it. They are to have a meeting here on October 7th.
          Ethel says you are coming up here real soon. We shall surely be glad to see you, in fact we have been expecting you up long before this. If you succeed in finding the paper perhaps you will get here before the meeting, otherwise, send it special delivery.
          As this is almost the end of this sheet of paper, it will necessarily be
the end of my letter. With kindest regards and abject apologies for
this typewritten letter, I am,

Very sincerely yours,
Cleo May Nash

Ref:  The Press Democrat, Wednesday, June 27, 1984, pg. 14A -- Reagan tells how to stay young -- Washington -- With a 50-year old duck looking over his shoulder, President Reagan joked about his age with some fellow senior citizens Tuesday but told them "loving your work" is the key to staying young.
          In a White House salute to about 200 senior citizens engaged in volunteer work, Reagan recalled that some of the world's noted artists, composers and statesmen made their greatest contributions after reaching retirement age.
          "Grandma Moses was doing brilliant work well into her eighties," Reagan said. "(Guiseppe) Verdi composed the opera 'Falstaff' at 79. (Konrad) Adenauer was guiding the German economic miracle when he was in his eighties. (Winston) Churchill was at retirement age when he began to lead Britain through World War II.
          "And, of course, 'Old Hickory' -- Andrew Jackson -- was actually 70 years old when he left the White House," the 73-year-old candidate for re-election pointed out. "Can you imagine that?"
          Reagan said Jackson, who left office in 1837 after serving two terms, "felt pretty trim and fit and vigorous when he left. I know, he told me."
          The audience in the East Room roared its approval.
          "They always talk about presidents aging in office," Reagan said, "and, of course -- like everyone else -- we do, but I think that if you enjoy this office and the great debates of the day, then you'll always stay pretty young. That's the key, I think, loving your work."
          Reagan, who will be a few days short of 78 if he wins a second term and survives to until it ends in January 1989, already is the oldest man ever to hold the office.
          He shared the stage with Clarence "Ducky" Nash, who is marking his 50th anniversary as the voice of the Walt Disney cartoon character Donald Duck. Nash held a Donald Duck puppet on his lap during the ceremony, and the duck rolled its eyes and quaked once as others addressed the group.
          Reagan gave Nash a plaque in recognition of his volunteer work, which in recent years has included numerous visits to hospitalized children, whom he entertains with his puppet and the famous Duck's voice. (Picture of Pres. Reagan and Clarence "Ducky" Nash)

My Sister
by Mrs. Stella Funk

Oh how we will miss you here
Yes, I know we'll see your smiling face
When we enter the better land
You'll be waiting there to greet us.

In our home of that promised land
She now walks the Primrose path
By which the clear cool water flows
She has no pain or grief.

There's a smile on her face
As she sit's in that promised land
With God and all his loving grace
And there We'll find her waiting.

          Walter Nash, long active in I.O.O.F. Circles, dies at 94 -- Walter Nash, 94, who retired in 1936 as a clerk at Brown Transfer Co., died early this morning at the St. Joseph Convalescent Center, where he had been a patient five days. He had never married. His home address for the past 65 years was at 1824 Sacramento street.
          Mr. Nash, a native of Fontana, KS, and the son of the late Andrew W. and Sarah A. (Landis) Nash, had lived here since he was 13 years old. Many years ago, during the pastorate of the Rev. Mr. Lawless, he became a member of Patee Park Baptist Church.
          In April of 1963, a feature story appeared in the News-Press about Mr. Nash's being a member of King Hill Odd Fellows Lodge No. 19 for 70 years. The previous week he had been presented with a veteran's jewel in honor of those years.
          During the years he held every appointive office in the lodge, and in 1897 served as Noble Grand. He later became recording secretary, a post he held for 60 years.
          Mr. Nash, for many years served as returning judge in his precinct, and had planned on reporting for duty at the polls today. However, a week ago last Friday he suffered a fall while walking to mail some letters. Through X-rays were taken the next day his injuries were not thought to be serious.
          Survivors include one brother, George Nash, Canoga Park, CA, and two sisters with whom he lived, Miss Anna Nash, and Mrs. Lora Feeley, and several nieces and nephews.
          Miss Nash retired about seven years ago from the American National Bank where she had worked for many years as a secretary in the trust department.
          The body is at the Meierhoffer-Fleeman mortuary pending service arrangements. --

D., of Maryville, is one of the leading surgeons in Missouri; one of the founders and the surgeon of St. Joseph's hospital, of the same city, is a member of the Missouri State Medical Society, the Missouri Valley Medical Society of Northwest Missouri and the International Railway Surgeons' Association.
          Dr. Nash was born in Hendricks Co., IN, February 1, 1850, a son of George Brown & Elizabeth (Daniel) Brown. George Brown Nash was born in Kentucky, in 1809, a son of Thomas and Hannah (Brown) Nash. His mother was a daughter of George and Mary (Ball) Brown. Mary Ball was a daughter of William Ball, who left an estate in Philadelphia, a legal contest for the possession of which has been in progress for years. {It is true a legal contest developed as a result of the estate of William Ball but there is no proof that Mary Ball was a daughter of said William Ball. In addition it is my belief that George & Margaret (Conrad) Brown were the parents of Hannah Brown, wife of Thomas Nash. PRO}
          George Brown took part in the Blackhawk war, in 1832, and was married March 3, the following year. In 1858 he emigrated from Indiana to Missouri with his family, and settled on a farm in DeKalb county. The pending outbreak of the Civil war and the succession sentiment which dominated DeKalb county influenced him, in 1860, to abandon his farm and move back east as far as Prairie City, Illinois, where the future physician spent the remaining years of his boyhood, and where George Brown Nash died in 1864. Elizabeth (Daniel) Nash survived until November 1, 1897. Their children were: Alfred T., born in 1833, who lives in Fountain County, Indiana; Sarah L., the wife of Benjamin H. Cord, who was born August 25, 1835, and died July 16. 1894. leaving children (Mrs. James Pendleton, Willis Cord, Minnie M., L. H. and Oma S. Cord); Elizabeth E. Nash, boarn in 1837, who married Alexander H. Betts, and lives at Maryville, Missouri; Asa M. Nash, born in 1839, who lives at Watonga, Indian Territory; Andrew W.
