In Diane's message (see below) regarding Hiram Browns, my great-grandfather, Hiram Wilson Brown (124b) was the son of Wilson Brown (not Nelson - perhaps a transcription error) and Catherine Geehen. Maggie J. VanBuskirk is indeed his wife and the date of the wedding is correct in that it agrees with the family Bible. She was the daughter of Aaron VanBuskirk and Nancy Delay of Street's Ridge.
Hiram and Maggie Brown did not have a son James nor a son with James as a second name. According to Harry Brown in his "Valley of the Remsheg", Hiram had a brother James, but there is no reference to one in the family Bible and none of my great aunts or great uncles made any reference to a James when I was pestering them with questions as a youngster (I started this when I was about 12 years old).
It would be interesting to know who this James Brown belongs to.
