577. John BROWN (Peleg , Eleazer , Eleazer , Thomas ) was born 1775 in Groton, New London Co., Connecticut. He died 13 Jan 1855 in Richfield, New York.

THE BROWN GENEALOGY, Vol. II, 1915, by Cyrus Henry Brown, pages 281.
    Mr. Brown was a farmer, and in politics a Whig. He was a member of the Baptist Church, and his wife a member of the Episcopal Church. The children all born at Richfield, New York in the house built in 1800 by John Brown and still in the possession of John Barown, son of Judson C. Brown.

   Sources: Brown Genealogy; DAR record from a Washington, D.C., woman who
joined the DAR via Peleg Brown.
   DAR woman says her ancestor, John Brown, was born in 1775. B.G. says in
1770. The former works better in lineup for children's births.
   DAR lady says he married Sally Beardsley at Richfield, 1801.  Should it be
Richfield Springs, which is close to West Winfield? Also Richfield Springs as
place of death?

John married Sally BEARDSLEY, daughter of John BEARDSLEY and Rebecca SCOTT, on 1801 in Richfield, New York. Sally was born in Saratoga, Saratoga Co., New York. She died Dec 1864 in Richfield, New York.

THE BROWN GENEALOGY, Vol. II, 1915, by Cyrus Henry Brown, pages 282.
    Mr. Brown moved to Homer about 1800; was a pioneer of Cortland County. In the early days of Timothy Brown this country was new and wild, and abounded in many kinds of game and wild animals. Timothy Brown is said to have been a noted hunter, having killed over forty bears.

579. Eleazer BROWN (Peleg , Eleazer , Eleazer , Thomas ) was born 17 Nov 1779 in Leyden, Hampshire Co., Massachusetts. He died 8 Jun 1866 in West Winfield, Herkimer Co., New York.

THE BROWN GENEALOGY, Vol. II, 1915, by Cyrus Henry Brown, pages 289.
    They eloped when married. Mr. Brown, after the death of his wife, moved to Litchfield, and later to Lisle, NY, finally settling at Binghamton, NY, on a farm that now joins land where the State Hospital stands. In 1864 Mr. Brown sold his farm and went to live with his oldest son, Hiram, at West Winfield, Herkimer Co., NY. He was a Baptist in his early years, but took exceptions to two of the ministers, and justly so, and left the church. It is said he was a good student of the Bible, but he measured the whole church by the peculiar ideas of the two ministers. He is buried on the old farm at West Winfield, with his father and mother.

  Sources: Brown Genealogy, Vol. II; Broome County land records; DAR cemetery record; An Intimate History of Winfield by Timothy Smith; History of Herkimer County (1879); New York census records.
  BG: Eleazer Brown, born at Leyden, Mass., 17 Nov. 1779. (Leyden at that time time was in Hampshire County, but in 1811 it was in the area designated as Franklin County.)

  1850 New York census: From Chenango town. Page 386. Eleazer III is listed as a farmer, with real estate valued at $5,000. On the same census page are:
  Son Eleazer IV, farmer; wife Rachel, 25, and daugher Mary, 3.
  Son German S. Brown (but recorded erroneously as German P. Brown) with wife and children. Listed as a farmer.
  Son Peleg M. Brown, 35, farmer, $2,000 in real estate; wife Lura, 22, and daughter Ellen E., 4.

  1855 New York census, film No. 809,005, lists:
  Jerome Brown, 29, b. Herkimer Co., New York, and residing in town (later Binghamton), for 21 years.
  Eleazer Brown III, German S. Brown, Peleg M. Brown and Eleazer Brown IV, all residing in town for 22 years and all born in Herkimer County. Actually Eleazer III was born in Massachusetts, another census error.
  This 1855 census information is on a single page coming after Binghamton entries, indicating all lived near each other. It accounts for four of Eleazer III's sons. Hiram bought West Winfield land from Eleazer on July 2, 1834, so he apparently had returned to Herkimer County before 1855 to live.  A Chauncey Brown, 37, farmer, was found in 1850 census for Lisle, Broome County. This is probably the sixth son because Brown Genealogy, Vol. 2, says Chauncey (no birthdate listed), died at Lisle in 1853. Eleazer III distributed much of his Broome County property to his six sons, according to county land records. Films 573101, 573104, 573095 and 573091.

  An Intimate History of Winfield by Thomas W. Smith (1979) says Eleazer came to West Winfield about 1800 from Connecticut. (His father, Peleg, purchased his W.W. land in 1797.) Smith says he settled there on "the large acreage, a part of Cochran's patent. Its lands straddled that early roadway which crosses westerly to Woods Corners and which is little changed today. Very likely that road was there before the right of way was established of Burrows Road, as it runs on down to the swamp." Eleazer's Cape Cod house was still standing in 1990.

   History of Herkimer County, 1879, says Eleazer arrived about 1792, but this must be an error. He would have been only about 13 years old, and the date is five years before Peleg purchased his property. But the 1879 book does say Eleazer was one of the first settlers in West Winfield. According to Leyden, Mass., marriage records, he was living in Richfield, later West Winfield, in 1798. He probably came with his father, who bought land in 1797.

  Both History of Herkimer County" by Harden and Brown Genealogy say Eleazer had a son Hiram, a grandson H. Clark Brown and a great-grandson H.C. Brown.

  Eleazer III is buried in a cemetery on the old family farm. The property is now owned by the Tennessee Gas Co., which has constructed a pumping station to pump natural gas to New England. Smith says the cemetery "was for many years overgrown with wild roses, brambles and berry bushes. The Tennessee Gas Company restored it, set up the fallen stones and fenced it in when establishing the plant there." Subsequently the company said it was
difficult to maintain the cemetery and received permission to bury the headstones and mark the cemetery's corners. Perhaps, also, it wanted to discourage visitors, thus reducing liability problems in case of injuries.
  One headstone, Peleg Brown's, stands in the middle of the cemetery site. He was a Revolutionary War veteran, and Daughters of the American Revolution members complained until the company agreed to leave the stone.   
   A bronze plaque listing some information from the headstones was placed at
the site. (Eleazer's birth date is off  by 20 years.)

  Film No. 836,761, Page 26, of Vol. 15, DAR records (Winfield Scott Chapter, 1928) says: "Old overgrown cemetery in the southern part of the town of Winfield, Herkimer Co., New York. It is in a dense grove near the old Lewis Day homestead." Tombstone information includes:

  Eleazer Brown d. June 8, 1866, age 87 years.
  Patty Brown, wife of Eleazer Brown, d. Feb. 8, 1825, age 47 years.
  Mr. Peleg Brown d. Jan. 26, 1814, age 71 years.
  Experience Brown, wife of Mr. Peleg Brown, d. June 16, 1852, age 92 years.

  Eleazer and his mother, Experience, were named to administer Peleg's estate.

  Brown Genealogy, Vol. II, says Eleazer III and Martha "Patty" Clark  eloped. Not so. Leyden town records show they filed an intention of marriage with the town clerk and later were married by the Baptist minister. At this
time (1799) Eleazer was residing in Richfield, Otsego County, N.Y. The area later became West Winfield, Herkimer County, N.Y.
  After her death in 1825 he moved to Litchfield, Herkimer Co., and later to Lisle, Broome County, (dropping off son Chauncey?) and finally settling  (1833) in Chenango (now Binghamton), Broome County, N.Y. There his farm joined land where the state hospital now stands. Sometime before 1833 he married Affa Wilcox. After her death, he sold his farm in 1864 and went to live with his oldest son, Hiram, in West Winfield. Eleazer apparently was well cared for by Hiram's wife Susan because he named her in his will and decreed she have a share of his estate equal to those of his heirs at law.

  Film No. 836,759, Page 195, says Eleazer was admitted to the Unadilla Forks Branch of the Free-Communion Baptist Church of Plainfield, near West Winfield, Herkimer County, in November 1803. He was elected sixth
trustee on 12 March 1807, but he was excommunicated on 1 June 1815. The church minutes for 6 July 1815 do not report a cause for Eleazer's excommunication. But Brown Genealogy, Vol. 2, states: "He was a Baptist in
his early years, but took exceptions to two of the ministers, and justly so, and left the church. It was said he was a good student of the Bible, but he measured the whole church by the peculiar ideas of the two ministers."
  How did this descendant of early Massachusetts settlers, probably Puritans, wind up a Baptist?

Eleazer married (1) Martha CLARK "Patty", daughter of Elisha CLARKE Jr. and Mary, on 9 Jan 1799 in Leyden, Franklin Co., Massachusetts. Patty was born 8 Feb 1777. She died 8 Feb 1825 in West Winfield, Herkimer Co., New York.

  Sources: Brown Genealogy, Vols. 1 and 2; History of Leyden, Mass.; Leyden Town Records (film 866,466); History of the Connecticut Valley in Mass.; Colonial Families of the USA; 1790 MA census.

  The 1790 census lists Clarks in Leyden, Mass., along with Peleg Brown, father of Eleazer Brown III. Family tradition says Eleazer eloped with Martha Brown (also known as Patty), but Leyden town records belie this tradition.
  Leyden Town Records (film 866,466), page 188: "An Intention of Marriage between Eleazar (sic) of Ritchfield (sic) and Patty Clarke of Leyden was entered in the office December 11, 1798." And, page 224, "Jannuary (sic) 9th
1799 Personally appeared before me Eleazar Brown and Polly (sic) Clark and was joined in marriage--Asa Hebard Pastor." The Ritchfield refers to Richfield, New York.
  [Asa Hebard was the Baptist minister. He died in 1830 and apparently the Leyden church died with him (see CT Valley History). No Leyden Baptist records are found at the FHL.]
  Peleg Brown bought land 7 Dec. 1797 in what was then called Richfield, N.Y., so Eleazer must have accompanied him to New York, before, during or after the land purchase process. And it is possible his older brother, Peleg Jr., also was involved. A "purpose of marriage" between Peleg Brown of Litchfield (sic) and Anna Clark of Leyden was entered in the Leyden Town Office 5 Oct. 1797. [Have not yet found a notice of the actual marriage.]

  It appears that Eleazer made a trip north in the dead of winter to get married.

   CT Valley History: Most of the Leyden settlers were from Connecticut and Rhode Island, with a few from Seekonk and Rehoboth, Mass. There were many Clarkes in Rhode Island, and Colonial Families of the USA notes an Elisha Clarke of Westerly, who was living in Leyden in 1806. Elisha's will names daughter Martha Brown, deceased, and Anna Brown, apparently the wife of Eleazer's brother, Peleg Brown Jr. In Leyden, the Clark/Clarke name was spelled both ways.

They had the following children:

age as 75 and born in Conn. Gravestone says 77 upon death May 16, 1861. Burial
in Layton Cemetery on Upper Court Street, town of Kirkwood, Broome County, just
beyond the city line of Binghamton.
