      Mickey Brown, a descendant of John Brown [1814-1841] through son William Wesley Brown [1837-1906], tested 67 markers. The belief has always been the John Brown was a likely grandson of Jesse Brown [1763 Chatham County, NC-c1831 Moore County, NC] and great-grandson to John Brown [d. 1776 Chatham County, NC]. Recently, Thomas Alvin Brown, a descendant of Jesse Brown, Sr. through son Isaiah Brown [1803-bef 1869] and grandson William Wesley Brown [1826- bef 1910] tested and was a close match to Mickey Brown likely confirming the long held theory. This set of Moore County Browns also match a few male Browns who trace their ancestors back to Georgia in the early 1800?s. Several theories exist on the possible connection; John Brown [d. 1776] had additional sons, William, John, Ambrose and Abner who might have migrated south or west and could have possibly produced descendants in GA. Further back, we know very little about John Brown himself, but it is very possible that the connection could come ultimately from one of his brothers or cousins as well. More research and tests will be needed to narrow down the connection to the GA Browns.
      Also, a descendant of Thomas Richardson [b. 1826] participated in a Y-DNA test and the results match the above Brown samples likely showing that Thomas was likely the son of a Brown male and Richardson female. During the 1850 Census, Thomas Richardson lived in close proximity to the families of Thomas Brown and Isaiah Brown. Both of these men were sons of Jesse Brown. These families also lived in the very close vicinity of David Richardson [1760-1842]. Also, Isaiah Brown married David's daughter Angy Richardson. It is my belief that Thomas Richardson was likely the grandson of Jesse Brown and David Richardson. I also believe that the most likely candidate for his father is Thomas Brown [1799-bef 1860]. Thomas had several brothers but my gut is that he is the most probable, followed by his brother Isaac or Isaiah. Feel like his brothers: Jesse Jr, William and John are less likely candidates. As to his mother, David had several daughters who never wed: Nancy, Peggy and Vicey. My belief is that one of them is the mother of Thomas Richardson.
