For many years, I didn't post or use family headstones or death certificates on the site because my Grandma, Ilene, thought they were macabre. Now that Grandma has passed, I have decided to lift that ban to help other researchers.
This site primarily concerns the history of the family begun by George Henry Brown and Hariett Eliza Sedgwick-Brown.
The image above comes from an original picture of the Brown family at a 1912 gathering. At that time, all of the descendants (and their spouses) of Fred and Marietta Brown were present. There are now in excess of 300 descendants from my great great grandparents. I wonder if they realized the impact they would have on the world?
Our family tree has been completed (the Sedgwick branch in large part by distant cousins) to the 14th century. There are many stories to tell. Please if you are a member of the family and have some interesting stories about our family, feel free to e-mail me, I will post them here.
For an interesting read on the Sedgwick family download Sedgwick 1934.pdf. If you are a member of the Sedgwick family, the Brown or the Wright family there is likely something here for you. And for a dash of diversity, there is some information on the members of the Graham family. the Harr family, a Southwick or two as well as some Moats, Titchnells and Herndons.
My version of our families’ (is that a real plural possessive?) history currently includes some 4,000 members. Please, if you are a member of a family related to George Henry Brown and Hariett Eliza Sedgwick, feel free to e-mail me.
All photographs, artwork, writings or any other items contained herein are the property of Michael Graham or their individual contributors.
These are the inclusions in the Family Tree:
•Any Sedgwick, Brown, Wright, Herndon, Titchnell, Moats, Graham or other affiliated families in direct ascendency of my children.
•Any ancestor of a Sedgwick, Brown or Graham, regardless of surname
•Direct line descendants of George Henry Brown and Hariett Eliza Sedgwick-Brown, regardless of surname
•Spouses of any of these plus the parents of the spouses
•Siblings of ancestors where they are readily available
•Others where it will clarify something or help to identify someone
In reference to Sedgwick.org's excellent policy, note this difference: A woman who marries a Sedgwick man and has a child is an ancestor of a Sedgwick, as are all her ancestors, so her ancestors ad infinitum are included. A man who marries a Sedgwick woman and has a child is not an ancestor of a Sedgwick, so only his parents are included.
