Henry Brown was a son of William Brown and Elsie/Alice Tymond. He moved around a bit in his life and finally settled in Oil Springs, Lambton County, Ontario.
I have written about Henry and his family in the post on this blog dated:
August 29, 2014 titled: The Children of William Brown & Elsie: Henry Brown.
I also visiting the Oil Springs Cemetery in September of 2014 and viewed Henry’s tombstone which was shared by his wife Margaret and daughter Ann.
See the post on this blog dated September 22, 2014 “Ontario Wanderings: Oil Springs and Their Cemetery.” In this post I shared my visit to the cemetery but really didn’t feature the tombstone in detail.
This side of the stone features the Yates Family:
YATES: George Cornell Yates, 1838 to 1901
His Wife Ann Jane Brown 1841 to 1935 (daughter of Henry & Margaret Brown)
Harriett Caroline Yates 1878 to 1887
Frederick Charles Yates 1880 to 1957
Henrietta Yates 1873 to 1970
Clifford Russell Yates 1883 to 1973
This is the backside of the tombstone in the Oil Springs Cemetery.
Benjamin Yates 1812 to 1888 His wife Phoebe Cornell. It is my opinion these are the parents of George Cornell Yates.
Henry Brown 1820 to 1899 His Wife Margaret Orr 1824 to 1900. These are Ann’s parents.
These stones are also featured at Find A Grave. Henry and Margaret Brown may have had a second daughter Elizabeth born in July 1866 but she didn’t survive dying 17 October 1866 in 8 Concession of Rawdon Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario.
I have shared in the posts I have indicated in this blog about Henry Brown and Margaret Orr his wife. Unfortunately, we do not know much about Margaret and her family. Her father might have been Joseph Orr and her mother a Mary Carter.
In the next posts I want to share more about Henry’s brothers’ families, Thomas and Philip Brown who remained in Hastings Co., Ontario.
