Looking for parents or siblings of David BROWN b. 1819 Berks Co. PA., married Catharine MAST b.1814, Pa. to Abraham and Salome/Sarah(YODER) MAST. They were in Tulpehocken, Berks Co. Pa. in the Ancestry 1850 census, are show with 2 sons Solomon b.1846 Brownsville, Fayette Co. Pa and Jonathan L. b, 1848,Fayette Co. Pa. David's occupation is shown as Coverlet Weaver.

I recently discovered in "American coverlets and their weavers" by Christa Anderson, he was in Mt. Joy, Lancaster, Co. Pa. 1840-1845, this was the extant of his weaving.

The family left Pennsylvania according to stories passed on to family members over the years, they settled somewhere in Ohio, some say in Miami Co., I have found no records to verify this. There were 3 other sons added to the family, Jacob M. b.1851 Fayette Co. Pa., David Franklin b. Erie Co. Ohio and Philip M. b. 4 Jan 1857, Ohio. All 5 sons died in Wells Co. Indiana, as did their mother Catharine who died in 1883.

In the obituary of Jonathan L. BROWN it tells of the father David having been killed in an accident involving a horse in 1857. By 1860 Catharine and her 5 sons are found in the Wells Co. Indiana Federal Census. She is listed as head of the household, occupation farming.

If there is anyone who has information on the early genealogy of David BROWN, who his parents were, did he have siblings, I would appreciate hering from them.

Thank you.
