    1. [S126] United States Archives,
      The next oldest child was John, born March 25, 1780, consequently it is certain that Wm. was born between the years 1724 and 1729, as above stated, or during one of these years. Wm. Brown married Elizabeth Buckner, a widow, about the year 175G or 1757, who had three children by her first marriage, viz. ? Anthony, Ann and Clary. The name "Clary" occurs frequently in the Brown
      family and is probably derived from the Scotch family of that name. Four children were born to Wm Brown and Elizabeth (Buckner) Brown, viz ? John, Thomas, Lydia and Mary Ann.
      2. William- Brown, (Williaml) the eldest son of William Brown, Sr., was born between the years 1724 and 1729, although the exact date can not be definitely ascertained from the data at hand. Wm. was the ward of Geo. Byrn, one of the guardians of the elder Wm. Brown's three sons, as shown by the foregoing bond entered into by Geo Byrn and Cuthbert Harrison. The further fact is deduced from this bond that all being minors, and Wm. being the eldest, he could not have been born earlier than 1724, for the bond was entered into in 1741 and he would have attained lawful age before the execution of this bond had lie been born earlier than 1724.
