Descendants of Father of Reuben Brown

Generation No. 2


      3. William J.2 Brown (Father of Reuben1)4,5,6 was born 1826 in Mississippi. He married (1) Susanna Phipps 22 June 1861 in Wilkinson County, Mississippi7, daughter of Richard Phipps and Sarah Adams. She was born 1843 in Wilkinson County, Mississippi, and died Bef. 1870 in Wilkinson County, Mississippi. He married (2) Amanda Caston 17 January 1871 in Wilkinson County, Mississippi8, daughter of Madison Caston and Jane Murphy. She was born 1850 in Mississippi, and died 1932.

Notes for William J. Brown:
I found the William J. Brown in the 1860 Wilkinson County Mississippi Census. The Elizabeth is possibly his mother although Elizabeth should be about 60 years of age by now, uncertain as to who Eliza J. or Letetia are. Eliza J. could be Jane in 1850 but age doesn't fit. The age of Wm J. would be correct with what is listed on the 1850 Wilkinson Co, MS Census which shows him as 24.
232/232 Wm J. Brown 34 M Planter $100 $100 Miss
Elizabeth 50 F S.Carolina
Eliza J. 20 F Miss
Letetia 21 F Miss

I found the following marriage in Wilkinson County MS records.
William J. Brown md Susanna Phipps 22 June 1861
Susanna Jones md Henry Phipps 7 Oct 1858
**(Is this the same Susannah Phipps that married William J. Brown in 1861?)
***(The marriage certificate to William J. Brown says, "Miss Susanna Phipps")
I did not find any Phipps or Jones in the 1850 or 1860 census that had a Susanna in the household.
