  • April 20, 2017: 50th Anniversary for Col. Aaron Brown - Leaves & Branches
    Col. Aaron Brown

    7 June 1822 MS - 2 July 1904 IA
    son of Moses Brown & Nancy Perkins
    husband of Elizabeth

    Yesterday being the fiftieth wedding anniversary of Col. Aaron Brown and wife, some of the old settlers hereabouts decided to celebrate the occasion by having a gathering in Odd Fellows Hall where refreshments and a social order of affairs should mark the event. It being “our busy day” we were not present. Col. Brown has passed the greater portion of his married life in this vicinity.

    from: Anniversary. (1894, Oct. 4). Fayette County Leader, p. 8. Retrieved Feb. 28, 2017, from newspapers.com. Colonel Aaron Brown

    It is interesting that Col. Aaron Brown's wife's name is never mentioned in this clipping about their anniversary.

    Are you related to this family? I'd enjoy hearing from you.
