Pop-up Pedigree
Last Edited=20 Jun 2007

     Jacob Ulrich Brown was born on 19 June 1809.1 He was the son of Jacob Brown and Elizabeth Ulrich. Jacob Ulrich Brown married Anna Hoover, daughter of Martin Hoover and Maria Eshleman, on 6 January 1829.2,3 Jacob Ulrich Brown died on 31 May 1878 at Ozawakie, Kansas, at age 68.2
     
Jacob Ulrich Brown and Anna Hoover appeared on the census of 7 November 1850 at Des Moines Township, Jefferson County, Iowa. They were both age 40, both born in Pennsylvania. The older children, including ten year old Nancy, were born in Pennsylvania. The younger children, including eight year old Jacob, were bon in Iowa.4      He and Annie moved to Jefferson County, Iowa, where they lived in 1850, both age 40, with several children. Annie was a daughter of Martin Hoover and a sister of Frances Hoover who married Samuel U. Brown. According to church records5 Jacob and Anna both died in 1854, but this must mean the year they left Iowa. This line is continued by Rosa (Brown) Seitz2 who says that Jacob and Anna are buried in the Ozawkie Cemetery, Ozawaki, KS. He died 31 May 1878 (she gives a birth date of July 19, 1808) and she died 4 June 1873, aged 69 years 10 months and 12 days (she gives a birth date of 6 Jan. 1829[?]).

     Daniel Brown was born on 26 March 1813.1 He was the son of Jacob Brown and Elizabeth Ulrich.
     Perhaps Daniel died young. This would explain why one of Jacob's sons appears to be missing from the census records of 1820 and 1830 and the lack of other information on Daniel.

     "A Pioneer Gone
"Editors Ledger: -- One of the pioneers of Des Moines township, George W. Brown, died at the home of J. G. W. Smith March 24, in his seventy-fourth year. Mr. Brown was born in Morrison's Crove [sic], Bedford county, Penn. He was raised a farmer. He was married about 1841 to Catherne Fishel, to whom eight children were born, three daughters and five sons. Two daughters died in infancy, two sons died in youth and three sons and one daughter survive him. David and John live in Ottumwa, William in Eldon, and his only living daughter, the wife of John G. W. Smith, lives in Des Moines township, this county. Mr. Brown and his brother Jacob came to the territory of Iowa in April, 1845. They arrived at the colony, now Libertyville, the latter part of April, 1845. They settled on the farm now owned by Michael D. Peebler, in Des Moines township, where they endured all the hardships and privations of pioneer life in a new country. Mr. Brown followed the occupation of farming for about thirty years. He was often honored with township offices, each of which he filled with credit and honor. In 1876, he moved his family to Eldon, Wapello county, where he became an employe [sic] of the C.R.I. & P. railroad, first as a section hand and then as wiper of engines in the roundhouse. He was promoted about ten years ago to the stationary engine. In all he served the company fifteen years, and he gave up work only when declining health compelled him. He was honored and respected by all who knew him and will be sadly missed about the roundhouse. On the street he was a familiar figure, always pleasant and cheerful and with a good word for everybody. He was one of the oldest citizens of the place at the time of his death. His wife died in the fall of 1877, in Eldon, since which time he has been making his home with his sons. October 2d [?], 1890, his last day's work was done. On the 21st of December last he went to his daughter's home in Des Moines township, where he remained until his death. Medical science failed to do him any good. He gradually declined until death came painlessly, and he passed away without a murmur. He was confined to his bed only about a week before his death. His disease was liver and kidney trouble. In 1861 he attached himself to the church of his choice, the German Baptist, or Dunkards, as they are generally called, and was a deacon of the church for about twenty years. He was a devout and faithful member, a kind husband, and indulgent father and a good citizen, generous to a fault. Of his pioneer associates there are only six men and women remaining in the township. Funeral services were held at the house of his daughter by Rev. Abraham Wolff of Libertyville."5

Daniel W. Brown1 (M)
b. 31 October 1838
Pop-up Pedigree
Last Edited=9 Feb 2007

     Daniel W. Brown was born on 31 October 1838.2 He was the son of Samuel Ulrich Brown and Frances "Fanny" Hoover.2
          D. W. Brown and Susan F. Peebler were married in Jefferson County, Iowa, on 19 Nov.1857.3 A 1966 newspaper clipping relates that he left for California on the day of his wedding to take part in the Gold Rush in California.
"Mrs. Russell Simmons, 406 E. Washington, has record of a wedding that took place in the parlor at the old hotel [Leggett Hotel, being razed in 1966] back in the days of the Gold Rush. Her maternal grandmother, Augusta Wayner [probably Wagner], had an older sister, Susan. Their maiden name was Peebler. At the age of 16, Susan was married to a young man in the Parlor of the original inn erected at that location. It was the Clay House operated by William Williams. It became the Leggett House when it was purchased in 1855 by Richard C. Leggett. It has been the Leggett Hotel since, a period of well over a century.
"The wedding took place early in the day. After the ceremony the wedding party drove to the home of the bride's parents one mile east and 2-1/2 miles south of Batavia where a dinner was held. That afternoon the young bridegroom, with a few other men, left by horseback for California to take part in the Gold Rush. The young bride climbed to the attic in the farm home and waved a dish towel from the window as long as she could see her new husband riding away over the prairie.
"After spending some time in California, he started back to Iowa with a group of 24 men. In the mountains of Colorado they experienced a violent rain and wind storm. They pitched their big tent early as the black clouds rolled in. They placed their gear around the edge of the tent and tucked the canvas under it. As they huddled together in the center of the tent to keep dry, lightning struck the pole and killed several men, the young groom included. Months later one of the survivors located Susan and informed her of her husband's death.
"A few years later she was married to Michael [sic] Springer in the same parlor in the same hotel building. They moved to Leon, Iowa, where their descendants still reside. While a young girl residing in Jefferson County, nearby Indians called her 'Sukey Blueskin Cracker'. No one could guess where they got "Cracker" since it in no way resembled Peebler. However, the name stuck with her all her life."4
This story is not quite in agreement with our family’s version of this incident. He was killed by lightning in the mountains of Colorado on his return trip some time later. It may be that the departure and return described above are for two different trips, since the family of Daniel W. and Susan Brown, with a son Ellis, age 1, is listed in the 1860 census of Jefferson County, Iowa. He is probably the “Elbo?” Brown, son of D. W. and S. R [sic] Brown, died 14 July 1866, aged 7 years, 6 months, 14 days, and buried next to Samuel Brown.5 Susan (Peebler) Brown was baptized into the Brethren Church in 1859, but the record does not mention Daniel Brown.6 On 3 Feb. 1868, David Springer, age 35, and Susan F. Peebler Brown, age 29, were married at Leggett House in Fairfield, Iowa, by Rev. Maynard.6,7 The obituary says Daniel W. Brown, son of Samuel and Fannie Brown, of Jefferson County, Iowa, died 10 July 1863 [sic], age 21y, 9 m., 19d., leaving a wife and one child to mourn their loss.8 An account for the estate of Daniel W. Brown, decd, was filed by Joseph Sketoe in Sept., 1860, in Jefferson County, IA.

His wife died 5 May 1834 at the age of 62. They had five children.1 A large stone in the Brethren Cemetery at New Enterprise, Pennsylvania, has been erected to their memory.

     "MARRIED. On Thursday last, by Watson Thompson, Esq., Mr. Peter Empfield, aged 68 years, to Mrs. Mary Bennett, aged 80 years, both of Pine Township."1
     
     On 14 Aug 1822 Peter Empfield and his wife Mary deeded to Benjamin Elliot two equal undivided shares of the land and tenements of the late George Empfield. Peter had inherited one share and obtained the other(by deed dated 8 May 1816) from John Palmer and his wife Elizabeth, who was a daughter of the said George.2 He married Mary Hart. According to Stewart's history, this was a second wife. Perhaps Hart was not a maiden name. Stewart also describes Peter as of German extraction and a native of eastern Pennsyvania who "came to what is now Cherryhill" Township of Indiana County, died in 1872 at age 84 and is buried in the Lutheran Church Cemetery in Brushvalley along with his second wife.3 He was age 26-45 in 1820 and age 30-40 in 1830, according to the federal census records of Wheatfield Township. In 1850, he was listed as Peter Hempfield, age 61, with wife Mary, age 53. He was age 71 in the 1860 census of Cherryhill Township, Indiana County.
Peter Empfield appeared on the census of 17 July 1860 at Cherryhill Township, Indiana County, Pennsylvania. He was age 71 in the household of John and Martha Green.4
