      Mickey Brown, a descendant of John Brown [1814-1841], 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]. To date, the only matches have come from Brown descendants who lived in Georgia in the early 1800's. Given that these matches are not exact, it is likely that the most recent common Brown ancestor was further back in time. More research and tests will be needed to determine ancestor of John Brown. Specific needs include confirmed Brown descendants of Jesse to see if they do in fact match Mickey's sample.
