Subject: Elizabeth Bateman Brown

I have the pension papers of Elizabeth Bateman Brown, filed in 1873 from Wyondatte County, Kansas for his husband, Peter Brown.  In this file is a request to change her pension address to Thorntown, Indiana; filed 8/23/1876.  In the 1880 Thorntown, Boone County, Indiana, census she is shown living with her daughter, Louisa Grasberry.  This census shows Elizabeth's father and mother as being born in Ireland.   

Just had a response from Boone County, Thorntown, Indiana.  First, Louisa Brown, Elizabeth's youngest daughter, married John C. Goldsberry not "Grasberry".  It is certainly easy to misread those census records.

However, their son, Elliott Elroy Goldsberry, died August 21, 1883, and is buried in the Old Thorntown Cemetery.

They found a newspaper article that Lou Goldsberry, wife of John C. and formerly of Thorntown, died Nov 15, 1893 at Kingsport TN.  John C. Goldsberry and family was living in Hamilton County, Tennessee in 1890.

They are still looking for any information on Elizabeth Brown.  I have ordered a book on pension payrolls and hope to find Elizabeth's name there.

Its been a long time coming but I do have more information on Elizabeth Bateman Brown, Mrs. Peter Brown, Fayette County, Ohio. I joined the Ohio Genealogical Society and they have provided the following:

Peter Brown is buried in Washington Cemetery, Fayette County near Washington Court House, Ohio.

The Washington Cemetery Interment Records, 1877-1908 show Elizabeth Brown died February 20, 1881.  I plan to go back to the Thorntown, Indiana folks and ask them to look for an obit again now that I have a date of death.

Also buried close to Peter Brown is a Frank M. Bateman and I will be doing some research on him to see if there is connection to Elizabeth.

The OGS also provided the following from the Chancery and Common Pleas Court Records, Fayette County, Ohio 1828-1878 which I think you already know:

"Page 157--Isaiah Brown vs Mary A. Brown et al of Fay. Co.  Peter Brown of Fayette Co. died March 8, 1858 intestate.  Staunton and Jesse Rowe's corner, 1277 3/4 acres on Sugar Creek.  Children of Peter are Peter, Mary A. of Fayette Co.; Martha A. Jamison late Brown wife of Jacob, Jr.; Eliza King late Brown wife of Wesley King; Jane Johnson late Brown wife of Payton P.

Johnson; and William of Stark Co., Ills.; and Sarah Quinn late Brown wife of John W. Quinn of Clinton Co., Ohio; Louisa, Ezra and Peter, Jr. of Fay. Co.  Peter, Jr. died Oct. 3, 1858 intestate.  Widow of Peter, Sr. is Elizabeth of Fayette County, Ohio."

I assume that "the late Brown wife" means they have died.  Right?  However, I did not think Eliza King, e.g. died that soon.  I also knew Peter had a lot of land but 1,277 3/4 acres is a bunch.
