      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.
