476. Roswell BROWN (Jedediah , Jedediah , John , Thomas ) was born 27 Aug 1760 in Stonington, New London Co., Connecticut. He died 27 Oct 1799 in Stonington, New London Co., Connecticut.

THE BROWN GENEALOGY, Boston, The Everett Press Company 1907, by Cyrus Henry Brown, page 24.
    Roswell Brown (171), son of Jedediah (79) and Mrs. Hannah Holmes [Jedediah (34), John (8), Thomas], born in Stonington, Conn., Aug. 27, 1760 and died Oct. 27, 1799. He married in Stonington Conn., by Elder Eleazer Brown, Sept. 6, 1786, Esther Williams (31, Williams family), born Dec. 10, 1768.
    Two elderly ladies now living, in 1906, remember her as a stately and handsome woman of strong personality and superior executive ability. From this can be inferred -- and it is believed the inference is right -- that she was a very superior woman in intellect and sweetness of disposition. No ordinary woman could have left after her death that secret and potent influence which keeps a name alive in a family through so many generations. Her blood flows in her descendants, and they recognize and glory in the fact by preserving her maiden name. It is noticeable, as it appears even to the present time.
