Three pictures of the gravesites of Joshua Brown and wife Charlotte Morris Brown, courtesy of Jil Loewit, who has some postings on Rootsweb, including the headstones of Jeremiah Brown, and of Elihu and Nancy Brown. In particular, there is some interesting info there about Joshua Brown and wife.

Joshua Brown's headstone says "Joshua Brown died Nov 26 1832 aged about 67 yrs".

Charlotte Brown's headstone says "Charlotte Wife of Jashua Brown Died Nov 5 1838", it looks like to me.

Hi all,

I recently received the attached photo of a memorial marker to Joshua Brown found in the Old School Baptist Cemetery. Does any one have any idea who Delilah Harnish Brown Shaffer is? If we can find her she may be able to add info about Joshua's family.

Hi all,

Gerald sent this to me re Delilah Shaffer. After I had sent out the original message, I went to Yahoo People search, and found Delilah's son George C. Shaffer, who lives in Maryville, TN. I talked to him and his wife last eve. They indicated that his mother was indeed the one who put the marker in the Old School Baptist Cemetery because Joshua's marker was getting so faded. They also indicated that she had placed similar markers in the Cherry Hill Cemetery for other members of her family. Delilah had recently passed away at the age of 92. They indicated that Delilah was descendant of Joshua and Charlotte via Caleb's Daughter Delilah who married Jeremiah Nead. They are still trying to get up to speed on the internet, but agreed to send me info they have on the Brown's via snail mail. I'll let you all know what's new when I receive the info.
