     27 February 1845 - Margaret was born in Tennessee and given the name of her maternal grandmother. (more history about Margaret and the rest of her siblings at the end of W.W. and Jane's history, covering their married life and descendants.)
     5 February 1847 Nancy Ann was born in Tennessee. Given the name of a favorite aunt or the parents just like the name. (since the first wife no doubt took care of the paternal mother's name)
24 December 1849 Robert W. Brown, how proud, after five daughters, William finally got a son. Assuming the naming custom, he was named for his paternal grandfather. (valuable tool for research) Could it be Robert Washington Brown?
(pt.2 - page 484) Cumberland Presbyterian Church, now of Greenfield. Two of it's ministers, among others, were W.W. Brown and B.F. Logan. (note LP - grandfather Brown carried the name of Cumberland Presbyterian Church throughout his ministry. The B.F. Logan mentioned above was also co-editor with William on the "Ladies Pearl" .........more given later about this. William also named one of his son's after Logan.)

     1850 - W.W. Brown was a minister of the Greenfield, Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Dade, County, MO., in 1850. His ministry was also known and taught as the "Old School". (source: MO.5 pt. 2, page 482)     10 May 1851 Mary E. Brown was born to William and Jane, in Greenfield, Dade, Missouri. She was given the name Mary from the infant Mary that William and Margaret lost. During this era in time, most religions believed that naming another child after a deceased infant, the spirit will again return and dwell in the living child.
