See Rugeley, Helen. "Descendants of Brown, William and Margaret (Peggy Fleming)." You will find subtantial information beginning on page 74. This work is on micro fiche and can be located through your local LDS Family History Center. According to Mrs. Rugely, this William Brown b. 1752 was the son of David Brown and Isabella McClintock.
William Brown had a will made 10 Oct 1846 in Perry Co. Ala. and recorded on 1 Feb. 1847. And he was buried at William Hannah's buring ground in Dallas Co., Ala.
William's wife is not named but his children are listed in the Rugeley book as being: 1. Elizabeth m. ---Hall, 2. Sarah m. ----Loven (Loving? Loren?) 3. John (G.?) m. Elizabeth Brown (a cousin?) 4. Adam D. 5. Samuel P. 6. Robert 7. William B. 8. James.

I have seen your queries and responses on the Pope page. I descend from George W. Pope through his son Charles (who was also a preacher) and have done some research on the family. Rough sketch: Charles I was first in Kent Co MD, later Kent Co DE. He came to Guilford County NC by 1772--one of your correspondents gave you a marriage bond for that year where he was the bondsman. He d. Guilford Co. c1785, evidently left a will, which didn't survive to be recorded. Land ended up in hands of sons Geo Whitefield and Charles (II); G.W. moved a few miles west to Rowan (now Davidson Co) and lived in the Abbots Creek neighborhood, where his church was/is. Charles moved to AL and ultimately filed for a Rev War pension there. A third son Richard was in Guilford, but moved to Chatham Co NC and filed for a Rev War pension from there. (G.W. was hauled before the Guilford Co Court to explain his Tory sympathies.) Because of the records I have seen and not seen, I have known little about Charles I's daughters.
I am at work, and have my Pope data at home, including an electronic writeup that I hope I can retrieve and send. Let me know what in particular you would like to know about Pope, so I don't miss the boat.
On Brown, my interest is in the family of John Brown, Blacksmith of Hickory Creek, which flows into Deep River in SW Guilford County near the Randolph County line. Said John evidently had a son or brother William Brown who acquired two NC land grants just after the Rev. war, sold the land to John. This family intermarried with that of Lewis Morgan: John Brown II md Mary Morgan, Lewis's dau and they had 3 children: David and John III were the boys. Both settled in Randolph County at present-day Trinity and had numerous descendants: I descend from John III. I do not know where John I Blacksmith came from. Let me know what Brown info you are looking for, a la the Pope concerns. Also, I can 'firm up' my Brown data that I am reciting off the top of my head.
Thank you, Otto. Hope we can help each other.
