Samuel BROWN
Molly HIDDEN
Please Note:  Samuel is said to be the son of Samuel BROWN & Martha CHASE, but there is no such couple as far as I can tell the alleged couple appears to be a mixup with Samuel BOWEN & Martha CHASE.  Our subject is also said to be the son of Joseph BROWN, Jr. & Abigail HILLS, but their son, Samuel BROWN, married Anne CARR.  A good fit for our subject's parents would be John BROWN & Sarah SMITH, who had a son, Samuel, born in Newbury on 18 Mar 1728, whose fate as an adult is otherwise unaccounted for, but I have yet to find a datum that would prove the connection.
