My g.g.grandmother was Virginia Arabelle Brown, born in Monroe Co. (W)VA on 1 Sept. 1845. Her marriage to Harvey W. Bowling, of Tazewell Co., VA on 12 April 1863 in Monroe Co, says her parents are David and Nancy Brown. On the 1860 census, she is listed with her family but the mother's name is Sarah. The children listed are: John J. age 16; Nancy J. age 14; Eliza J. age 12; Sarah H. age 10; Virginia A. age 8-incorrect-should be 5; James W, age 2; and a M.F. Jamison, age 74 and Nancy Jamison, age 70. I wondered if Nancy Brown died and maybe Sarah was a stepmother of Virginia? I cannot find any records of this family on trips to Monroe Co. In 1880, Harvey and Virginia Bowling are living in Summers Co. In their home, along with their children, George W., William E., David L., Jasper E. (my g grandfather), Thomas A., and May F. is a DAVID A. BROWN, age 28, listed as brother-in-law and a medical student. In this census, Virginia is listed as 33 years old. Actually, she would be 35. Any help with this Brown family would be very much appreciated. I have hit a brick wall.
