THE BROWN GENEALOGY, Vol. II, by Cyrus Henry Brown, pages 268.
    Prentice Brown followed a blazed trail from Stonington, Conn. through New York State into Otsego County. He was a blacksmith.
page 269. Note -- While it is said that Prentice Brown was born at Stonington, I am inclined to believe that it was his father, Eleazer, who blazed the trail into New York State when it was comparatively one vast wilderness, in the last half of 1700. Eleazer, with Simeon Brown, Jr., is mentioned as a pioneer to New York State in this same connection in 1791. Therefore I believe that Prentice Brown was born in Madison Co., NY. Stonington, Conn., at this time, one hundred years after the three Brown brothers made their settlement in this wilderness, had become very thickly settled, and every acre of available land was unter cultivation, and the same spirit of adverture crowded these sons of Elder Eleazer Brown from their home town, Stonington, to seek new and cheaper land and more productive in the west -- "out west, " it was then called.
    It was with much difficulty and long research that the compiler located these brothers, -- Eleazer, Benjamin, and Luther, -- for no records are left of where such adventurers fled to.
