My great grandmother's married name was Rebecca(also seen as Rebeca)Brown. She was married to a John Brown. Had three sons:John ,James and Samuel. She emigrated to the U.S. from Coleraine,county Derry, Northern Ireland. I don't know when she came over or where and when she married. Nor do I have a maiden name. This is where the road ends for me.

Ok . just to assist but not a good practice we will estimate

You said she was your G Grandmother - ok we'll asume you are ( 50 )now in 2011 ( have to start somewhere ) well deduct that from 2011= 1961
another 25 years when your from where you were born to your mum was born - = 1936 = we now take her mother ( same formular )= 1911-
Same formula for her mother = approximately 1886 -- she was possibly 20 or older when she married = + 20 = 1906 . Ok we will aim at that date with 20 +/- allow a little adjusting - we will search from 1891 -- 1931 ( quite a range in age ) - --> all sources - united states -- all counties - For 'Rebecca Brown " what have we
--> ( 155 ) of that name for you to research - Regards

I can give some specifics that will help. Rebecca was born in 1864,I assume in Coleraine,Northern Ireland. Of her three sons I have the birthdate of my grandfather James,1888. They lived in Philadephia,Pa. That should narrow the field.That means she was 24 when my grandfather was born,but he was the middle child with John being the eldest. See what you get with this additional info.
