Notes for SAMUEL BROWN:

Samuel Brown and his wife, Diantha left Broadalbin, New York in the Spring of 1817, intending to go to Ohio. They came to the Genessee River country and stayed there for two years. From there they drove a team of oxen hitched to a long wooden sled, on which they carried their belongings and on which the smaller children rode. They also had two cows. Their route was down through the woods, camping at night, until they came to Hamilton, New York (now Olean, New York). There they built a raft or float on which Diantha and the six younger children rode. Samuel Jr. was then a lad of eighteen years, large and strong. He and his sister, Eunice and the older children drove the cows along the bank. In September 1819 they landed at Dunns Eddy below Irvine, Warren Co., PA. Here was a small flat stretch of land on the Allegheny River. This was their home for many years. From here they moved to York Hill near Youngsville, Warren Co., PA. where they lived until they went to make their home with their son, William in Sanford, Warren Co., PA., about three miles from Grand Valley.

Samuel and Diantha had nine children when they made the trip down the Allegheny, the youngest a small baby. They had plenty of company on the trip for there were hundreds of families at Olean making their floats or "Arks" and floating down to lands to the south. Winter was close at hand and food difficult to obtain. Fortunately Samuel had a trade which was much in demand. He was an expert Chair Maker. That winter he made chairs and traded them for corn, a chair for a bushel. For those chairs he used green birch, maple and ash. He would go to the woods, cut material for the posts, and make four chairs between daylight and darkness. He added splint seats in the evening by the firelight. Samuel was a small man who carried a cane or a staff in front of him, holding it with both hands. Diantha was six feet tall and unusually heavy. She was of Scottish descent. She always wore a lace cap and smoked a clay pipe. If she thought the pipe was getting strong she went to the stove, pulled out some of the live coals, put the pipe in them, and the pipe would come out clean. The sled on which they traveled from the Genessee to Olean had poles for runners. The poles were shod with wooden shoes made of smaller poles fastened with wooden pins. Nathaniel and Solomon were river pilots, Solomon being the better pilot. According to the D.A.R. Application for Grace Maynard Rose No.# 704091, Samuel was born at Cambridge, Washington Co., New York and died at Chautauqua Co., New York 18 September 1864.
