Meriam (aka Miriam) Davis was born 1769; she died 1832. She was the daughter of Israel Davis and Elizabeth Wickes.

She married 1st Joseph Brown (1758-1800); they had children including:

  1. Elizabeth Davis Brown, b. 1791,d. 1848; m. Samuel B. Hallock.
  2. Israel Wicks Brown b.abt. 1793, m. Charity Yarrington

Note There is strong evidence of another son "Luther Brown", said to be the eldest son of Meriam. (referred to as "Uncle Luther" in Ellen Smith Brown's letter). Luther, whom Ellen describes as having a strong resemblance to Meriam's father Israel's brother Joseph Davis, (Meriam's uncle) has not been found, to date.

She married 2nd Jonathon Hallock (1766-1847), Rocky Point, Long Island, New York d. 13 Mar 1847, Rocky Point, Long Island, New York. They had:

  1. Samuel Hallock b.abt.1801
  2. Jesse Hallock b.abt 1803

Note: Meriam would be about age 34 when her last child was born. Samuel and Jesse are certainly born after the DoD of Joseph Brown, and this has been used to estimate their births. None of the sources listed here provide accurate dates for their births.
