The trail of tears took place in 1838 and 1839 preceeding the birth of Charles Brown. 
"In 1838 and 1839, as part of Andrew Jackson's Indian removal policy, the Cherokee nation was forced to give up its lands east of the Mississippi River and to migrate to an area in present-day Oklahoma. The Cherokee people called this journey the "Trail of Tears," because of its devastating effects."
The Trail of Tears - PBS

See cherokeeregistry.com for a list of Cherokees removed on the Trail of Tears in 1835. There are quite a few entries for people named Brown.
