Third Generation

12. Rebecca E. BROWN10,57,58 was born on 31 October 1829 in Missouri.57 She died on 6 July 1905 at the age of 75 in Jenny Lind, Sebastian County, Arkansass.57

As with most members of this family, the proof that the Rebecca married to William Jameson is indeed the Rebecca, daughter of William Brown & Elizabeth Halsted, is circumstantial. In 1850, William Jameson & Rebecca, with 5 children, several too old to be hers, live next door to Ezekiel Brown and his family. Her descendants have long understood her maiden name to have been Brown, and that she was born in Missouri.
