I've been working on our family history for some time but am having problems locating information on John Brown born in New York around 1865-1867. We believe his father's name was George from Germany and his mother was from France. I don't know her name. We do know that John had a brother named Charles. George, hi father, served in the Civil War and died before John reached the age of 12. John's mother died when he was 12 and he ran away from home according to my great grandfather. John married Mary Petee and settled in Mighigan.
Any information you can give me would be appreciated!
