ALEXANDER BROWN, JR...
p. 46 ...Mr. and Mrs. Brown [Alexander & Lucy (HOARD) BROWN] were the parents of ten children...  Alexander [Sherman] Brown enlisted and served during the Civil War.  At the close of the war he returned and married Sarah Hudson, March 1866.  They were the parents of five children.  [Alexander] Hudson married Eva Rhodes, lives in Harmony; Minnie married George Fargo, also lives in Harmony; James, married Grace Stephenson.  He is a prominent citizen of Fluvanna.  He owns and operates a saw mill and cider mill.  He was elected school trustee at different times, was elected Highway Superintendent for the Town of Ellicott 1919, and is prominent in other activities.  Mr. and Mrs. Brown are the parents of five children.

     After Alexander Brown and Sarah Hudson were married, he bought the house which stood across from the old homestead of the Bentleys and moved it down to his farm, corner of the Strunk road where it now is.  This house was built on land owned by Walter Simmons and was moved to the corner opposite the Bentley house sometime about 1832.  Warner Shaw and his mother lived there until after he was married in 1836.  Mrs. Shaw then lived alone until the farm was sold to Mr. Bentley in 1846.  Mr. Bentley sold the corner where the house stood to George Chase soon after they purchased the farm in 1849...
