Hello All
My name is Keith W. Brown and I have been researching the Brown surname of Bonavista Bay for over 40 years

Hi Keith,

We corresponded once before when you directed me to information in the Brown Family Bible on this site. I am trying to continue to research Jesse Brown's (1872-1941) line. I think he is descended from Christopher Brown (1850-1900), Thomas Brown (1815-?) and James Sheppard (1798-?). Does this seem to match any of your research into the Brown name? Jesse was my great-grandfather.

His son, Hezekiah "Harry" Brown (1895-1986) was in the military in Nfld - I have a photo of him in uniform - but I have so far been unable to find any info on his military service. Perhaps you can direct me to a source? Also, in his newspaper retirement notice from Boston Edison it states that he taught school in Nfld. I'd love to know more about that, too. I imagine back then there might have been many small schools; how would I research those?

Thanks in advance!
Jenni Cook
