FAMILY STUDIES
Brown County, Indiana

These Studies are not intended to be complete genealogies. In most instances these Studies endeavor to cover the period when the families lived in Brown County. However, through the use of obituaries, information from descendants, etc., it has often been possible to include data on some family members before or after their appearance in Brown County records. Research in surrounding counties of Bartholomew, Jackson and Monroe has been helpful in this regard.

Primary sources have been Federal Censuses (1840 through 1910), Brown County birth, death and marriage records, with Book and page given. Additional sources were Funeral Home records from Nashville and Columbus, the 1884 History of Morgan, Monroe and Brown Counties, Indiana, by Weston Goodspeed, and probate, will, guardianship and divorce records, with Box and File, Book and page given. Interviews and correspondence with descendants, local newspaper obituaries and items and, in some cases, original land grant and property tax records were used.

The Family Studies were researched and compiled by Kenneth J. Reeve and Helen H. Reeve who serve as the Genealogical Committee of the Brown County Historical Society and the Brown County Genealogical Society-. They regret errors of transcription or interpretation.

Each Family Study has its own Index. Listed below are the Studies completed as far as possible from records available to the researchers.
