PORTION OF ELISHA BROWNSON FAMILY BIBLE

Transcribed by Shirley Brownson from a letter sent to Milton Brownson (b. 1/3/1865 in Croton, Delaware Co., NY; d. 1/24/1940 in Flint, Michigan). The writer is probably Etta (Blanchard) Squire (b. 6/1855, probably in Delaware Co., NY): cousin of Milton, daughter of Charles and Samantha (Brownson) Blanchard, and granddaughter of Elisha Brownson (b. 12/23/1787 in New Milford, CT; moved to Delaware Co., NY; d. 7/1842). Unfortunately, the rest of the letter is missing. Julia Anne through Julius are children of Elisha. Virgil Remington is the son of Seba and Julia Anne (Brownson) Remington.

Friend Milton,
Yours rec'd and I will give you the birthdays of my Grandfathers family as well as my fathers children for I thought you had made a mistake in asking for my fathers family as they were Blanchards. At least it will do no harm to give both. I have the old Brownson Bible and Tracy has the Blanchard Bible. Mrs. J B Williams address is Fort Jones Cal
