This is my family, or at least some of it. I am descended from Lowe Brown of Tazewell Co., VA, through his eldest son, Isaac. This family is noted for a peculiarity known as symphalangism. It is a hereditary ailment whereby afflicted members may have no knuckles on their fingers. Fortunately for me, Isaac did not have the 'curse' so it was not passed down through my line. However, it still persists in many members of our family.
I have been doing genealogy research for over 40 years and have compiled a large amount of information on the families shown above as well as many others.
