On 31 March 1810 Moses received a passport to travel out of Georgia to Mississippi. “That passports be prepared for the following persons to travel through the Creek Nation of Indians, to wit, one for Moses Brown and Daniel Brown, [his brother] the former with his mother in law, four children …from the county of Liberty in this state…”Later he married Nancy Perkins on 7 August 1812 in Marion, MS. Moses died in 1838 in MS.

War of 1812

As can be seen from the military record to the right, Moses Brown enlisted in Capt. John Bond's company on 3 January 1815 at the courthouse in Marion County, Mississippi Territory. It must be noted here that Mississippi was STILL a territory at the time of the War of 1812. Moses Brown enlisted as a 3rd Sergeant. His brother, Daniel enlisted as a private. Also of note, in this same Company was Willis Simmons. The names of men from Mississippi who fought in this war are many with close family ties: Bond, Quin, Fairchild, Magee, Varnado, and others who should be listed here.

Andie actually knows more about this family than I do... but I DO recall that a lot of the Brown family did move north before the Civil War.
