Biography

Joseph Brown was born about 1740, the child of Thomas Brown and Ruth Large. He was born in Pennsylvania or Virginia. His parents, Thomas and Ruth Brown, moved their family from Bucks County, Pennsylvania to the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia around the time of his birth. They settled in the area now known as Berkeley County, West Virginia. It was called Apple Pie Ridge after his father established orchardry in the area.

Joseph Brown married Ann Jones Morgan at Cane Creek Meeting in Orange County, North Carolina on October 27, 1763. Their marriage was recorded in the Cane Creek Meeting Minutes. Present at the marriage were his brothers: William, Thomas, and Samuel. Hannah Moon Brown and her sister, Margaret Moon Brown, the wives of William and Thomas also signed as witnesses.[1]

Joseph and Ann had four daughters recorded in the New Garden Meeting Minutes: Mary, Ruth, Elizabeth and Philipena.[2]

Joseph Brown passed away in 1814 in Williamson, Tennessee. His will and estate records identified his wife, Ann Brown; and children: Polly Worley, Elizabeth Handlin, Philopena Dickerson, Ann Potter, Sarah Mitchell, Ruth Mendenhall, and grandson, Joseph Worley.[3]
