Oct 7, 1963 note fromElmer Brown; (his son) “William D. married Matilda Gillam Oct 6, 1869 and lived with his father (Mathew) till 1873 as Mary Dunkin had died in 1868. In 1873 William D. moved to the Mrs. Allen Gillam farm (Mother In Law’s) and by 1877 he had bought the 160 acre farm, but sold 40 acres to Nelson Gillam, a brother of Matilda. Nelson later sold the 40 acres to John Clark. This left 120 acres in the William D. farm. This farm is now (1963) the Orville and Elmer Brown farm, the home of Glenn Brown.”
Notes from Marlene woodfield; “William Dunkin Brown was a farmer all of his life in Carroll County. He farmed the farm (west 1/2 and the West 1/2 of the East 1/2 of the South East 1/4 of section 1, township 25, North Range 2 West except for 1 acre sold for school purposes out of the SW corner leaving 119 acres) which is now owned by Orville Leroy and Elmer Ray Brown, his grandsons and which is farmed by Glen Brown, his great-grandson. This farm was the Allen W. Gilliam farm, Matilda’s father’s and upon his death, William bought out the other heirs.”
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with William by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with William:
