I have traced my descent to David S. (possibly David S.H.) Brown, son of Joshua N. and Submit Hall Brown b. 1834 in Starksboro, grandson of Joseph and Elzabeth Nutter Brown. Wondering if there is a way to check local church records to see if the family belonged? I do not have a complete record of the children Joshua who m. 1st Altha Beers before he m. Submit Hall and hope church records might assist.
Also have not had luck in finding the marriage record of David and Sarah W. Smith, who resided in Harrietstown, NY before the marriage. David S. Brown relocated to Lincoln about 1860.
Happy to share my information. Thank you.
