      JACOB BROWN, the oldest child of Jacob, the wagonmaker, and his wife, Elizabeth, was b. 1752 in the area of Rowan Cty, N. C. according to D.A.R. records. He died 10 May 1841 in Washington Cty, Tn. He first m. Elizabeth Artmire, 29 Aug. 1774 in Rowan Cty, N. C. Elizabeth d. before 1816 and Jacob m. a second time to Mary (Polly) Salts, 23 Jan. 1816 in Washington Cty, Tn. Some records state that Mary was the widow. Jacob Brown served in the Revolutionary War. He enlisted in 1777 and served three months in Capt. Frederick Fisher's Company, Col. Locke's Regiment. He marched against the Cherokee Indians and was in several skirmishes. He served under Commissary Yarberry, in Salisbury, and was employed in making and repairing wagons, according to the Pension Record. It is very probable that he used the tools or workshop of his father, Jacob, the wagonmaster. He was in the Second Battle of Camden under Col. Reece. Jacob moved from Rowan Cty to Washington Cty, N. C. (now Tn.) about 1789-90 with at least two of his brothers, George and Abraham. On the 11th day of Aug. 1791, George Brown sold 100 acres of land on the Little Limestone to Jacob Brown. In the year 1796, the 24th of Dec., Jacob Brown, Sr. sold to Jacob Brown, Jr., 24½ acres on the Little Limestone. About 1830, a school house was built on land that was deeded by Jacob Brown, Jr., - trustees were John Murr, Alexander Campbell and Robert Million. Mr. Paul M. Fink's "JONESBOROUGH, THE FIRST CENTURY OF TENNESSEE'S FIRST TOWN", states that in 1863, "In the morning of September 8, the troops met close to the Embree stone house just west of Telford. After a brisk skirmish, the southern forces returned to their camp at BROWN'S SCHOOL HOUSE about two miles east." A few months before his death, an old man of almost 90 years, Jacob Brown made his will, dated 19 Feb. 1841. He names his children, although some of them had already died, and he mentions grandchildren without naming them. He left to his wife, Mary, his "still and tubs" along with household furniture, geese, sow and pigs. Jacob and several of his children were members of the Cherokee Baptist Ch.
