dc.descriptionThe Brown Family were early settlers of Western New York, from Connecticut. Daniel Brown (1749-1832) was born in Windham, Connecticut. He married Anna Phelps (1755-1837) on November 7, 1776 in Hebron, Tolland Connecticut. Their children were: Mary Ann Brown (1779- 1779) who died at one day old; Daniel Bishop Brown (1780-1822); Thomas Brown (1783-1851) who was married to Lucy; Anna Brown (1785-1815); Ephraim Brown (1787-1826); Henry Brown (1789-1849); Sarah Brown (1791-) who became Sarah Cotes and Samuel Augustus Brown (1795- 1863). Daniel, Henry and Samuel Augustus were attorneys. Daniel of Hebron, Connecticut, settled in Whitesboro, Oneida County in 1803 and then moved on to Batavia, Genesee County, New York later that same year. He came into conflict with Joseph Ellicott who was an agent of the Holland Land Company. This proved to be a setback to his career. In 1805, there was also a scandal involving a woman in Batavia which caused him some trouble. Henry Brown was in Canandaigua after his graduation from Yale in about 1810. He then went to Albany to study law at the office of the Attorney General. He settled in Cooperstown and eventually established a law firm in Springfield, Otsego County. Samuel Augustus settled in Jamestown, Chautauqua County and Ephraim Brown established a medical practice in Batavia, New York. Sarah married Doctor John Cotes.en_US
