№ 20 Isaac Anderson came to TN from Buncombe, NC with wife Sarah Curtis, who was the sister of James Curtis (no. 24) and either daughter or sister of John Curtis (no. 33). Isaac and Sarah's daughter, Nancy Anderson, married William Brown, son of № 26 Thomas Brown. Additional information on the Anderson family can be found at the following: The Isaac Anderson Family of Early Warren County Tennessee.

№ 49 Robert BROWN, Rev. War Soldier was b in Rowan Co, North Carolina, s/o William BROWN of Augusta Co, Virginia; brothers were William, Thomas, Alexander; later he res. in Burke Co, North Carolina; then in Hawkins County, Tennessee where in 1797 he sold land on Dodson's Cr. of the Holston River to Martin JOHNSON, h/o Sarah COMBS and bro of William JOHNSON, later to Knox>Smith>Warren Cos TN. His brother, Thomas BROWN, also resided in Warren County, Tennessee, possibly № 26 above adjacent to № 25 David BROWN? Also note, however, that James Cooper's List also includes a David and Thomas BROWN. Researcher Jim Brown has graciously provided the following analysis (and yet more questions, of course <g>):

There were two men named “David BROWN” on the 1812 Tax List, one on page 5 (Cooper's no. 39) and one on page 8 (Graham's № 25). One of these is probably the same David BROWN who was born in NC in 1783 or 1784, enlisted for the Creek War in Warren County in October 1813, in the militia company of Capt. James COLE, and moved to St Clair Co, AL ca. 1814-1818. Militia records for the Creek War (National Archives) show also that a (second?) David BROWN from Warren County served in the Creek War with Capt. William DOUGLASS'S company from Jan. 28 to May 10, 1814. Based on the names of his neighbors, David MILLER and Thomas LANGFORD, I hypothesize, but cannot prove, that the David BROWN on page 5 is the David who moved to St Clair Co, Alabama, since the latter had a son named Miller BROWN and a daughter who married Washington LANGFORD. The land records of Warren Co show that a David BROWN received a grant for 200 acres in the 34th Section of the 3rd Surveyor's District in 1809 (page 47, Book 34, 3rd Surveyor's District), and that he sold this same parcel in 1814. Another David BROWN appears (probably as a chain carrier, although the document does not explicitly name him as such) on a survey for land granted to a William BROWN (Page 5, Book 35, Plats and Surveys, 3rd Surveyor's District). My working hypothesis -- again without yet having obtained real proof -- is that this latter David BROWN is the David on page 8 of the tax list (next to Thomas BROWN), that he was a younger man than the David who received 200 acres, that he is a grandson or nephew of the Rev War Vets, brothers Robert and Thomas BROWN of Warren Co, and finally that he is not the David BROWN who moved to St Clair Co, Alabama. (This hypothesis is consistent with the fact that the names “Robert” and “Thomas” do not appear among any of the sons of David Brown in St. Clair Co, Alabama.) I would appreciate comments and reactions. Researcher Jim Brown,

№ 89 Russel Brewer, born 28 Jan 1785 in Rowan, NC, was the son of Lewis Brewer and Agatha Holland. In 1805, Russel married Nancy B. Toliver (d/o № 75 William Toliver), b. 9 Feb 1785 in NC. Russel and Nancy lived in Warren County until Russel's death 1 Sep 1858.

№ 99 John, № 76 Jesse, and № 67 Moses Toliver were brothers who moved to Warren County from North Carolina. John, born in Wilkes County, NC circa 1760, and his wife, Tabitha Howell, were the parents of № 75 William Toliver and of Nancy B. Toliver, who married Russel Brewer in Warren County in 1805. Historical records indicate that the name Toliver was originally Taliaferro and that the family lived in Essex County, Virginia prior to moving to North Carolina.

№ 73 John NELSON, Rev. War Soldier, m Lucy HART, b Cumberland Co NC, 12 Oct 1786 in Chatham Co, North Carolina; lived earlier in NC, SC, KY, IN & TN

№ 60 Peter MYRACLE and № 102 James MYRACLE were brothers from Burke County, NC. Peter was the husband of Susan DERRYBERRY, daughter of № 83 Jacob DERRYBERRY and his wife, Christiana. Several spelling variations of the MYRACLE name can be found in historical records; however, the original name is believed to have been MERCKEL and the family of German descent.
Submitted by Angela Mayfield

№ 83 Jacob DERRYBERRY, b. circa 1750 in Burke County, NC, and his wife, Christiana Barnhardt, were the parents of № 84 Michael DERRYBERRY.

Descendant DNA test results have shown a match with the German Durrenberger family.

№ 84 Michael DERREBERRY (also spelled DERRYBERRY) b. about 1785, Burke Co, died 9 Feb 1861, Warren Co, TN, buried: Big Spring Cem., Warren Co, TN. Michael was the son of Jacob and Christiana Barnhardt DERRYBERRY, of Burke Co. NC. Michael and wife, Rosanna, were the parents of Elizabeth DERRYBERRY who married John Burl Davenport.
