Brown

My father was Delbert Keith Brown & my paternal grandfather was Roy Jesse Brown, hence my connection to the Brown surname. The difficulty in searching through records for this name is probably obvious. It is very common. If you couple it with a common first name, such as James, you will find a long list of James Browns. To add to this difficulty the Browns married the Smiths. Are there more common surnames in the USA? Some of the other surnames entwined with the Browns are: Fortenberry, Dillon, Kennington, Spurlock,  and Smith.

Following the direct Brown name back through generations & time, Edward Brown appears as our primary ancestor.
