    Capt. Daniel b. Mar. 20, 1725, m. (1) Theody Park of Groton CT. m. (2) Abigail Crary. First settler of Brookfield, NY, 1791.

BROWN GENEALOGY, Vol I, Boston, The Everett Press Co., 1907, by Cyrus Henry Brown, pp. 20.
    Capt. Daniel Brown (55) [Daniel (24). Thomas (2), Thomas], born Stonington, Conn, Mar. 20, 1725. Resided in Stonington until his removal to Brookfield, NY. In Oct, 1763, the Assembly of Connecticut among its acts established, "Mr. Daniel Brown, jun., to be Lieutenant of the 6th company or trainband in the town of Stonington." [XII - Conn. Col. Rec., p. 195]. In Oct. 1769, the Assembly established him as captain in the same company. [XIII. Conn. Col. Rec., p. 244] No other person is known who could have been the person referred to in the acts in question. He is referred to as Capt. Daniel in the records of those families who have the tradition that he was a Quaker. No record exists of any service in the Revolutionary War. He was the first settler in the town of Brookfield, Madison County, NY, locating there in 1791, his house having been commenced on July 4 of that year. An account of Capt. Daniel Brown and his family will be found in "The History of Chenango and Madison Counties," edited by James H. Smith and published by D. Mason & Co., of Syracuse, 1880, and in Mrs. Hammond's "History of Madison County." He married first, in Stonington, Theody Park, of Groton, Conn, by whom he had two children.
    He married second, Abigail Crarey, by whom he had twelve children, three sons and nine daughters. Such was their extraordinary stature that it was said that Capt. Brown had "sixty feet of daughters."
     One of his waggish descendants used to say, by way of explanation, that Capt. Brown had six daughters, each ten feet in height. Tales are still told among their descendants of the wonderful strength of Isaac and of the wonderful vitality of Nathan. On one occasion Nathan was caught under a fallen tree. His brother alone lifted the tree, which five men were unable to move, and Nathan, although terrible injured, and given up by the doctors, was out in six weeks. The tall clock which certainly belonged to Nathan, and probably belonged to his father, is in the possession of Ralph W. Brown, of Norwalk, Ohio.
    One of the descendants, being asked as to the religion beliefs of the family, says: "Few of the family have connected themselves with any special church denomination. But the one motto which has passed from father to son down throughout the years, painted on a silver background with letters of gold, set with diamonds, rubies, and precious stones, is 'Do unto others as ye would others should do unto you.' Impressed on the mind, and in stilled in the heart, this makes a pretty good religion."

Daniel married (1) Theody TURNER about 1750 in Stonington, New London Co., Connecticut, by Rev. John Owen, Pastor. Theody was born in Groton, New London Co., Connecticut. She died 5 Jun 1752.
