Surnames: Brown Pond Lyons Green
In response to your 15 Nov 2003 posting on Browns of NB then MN

You have solved the mystery about my g-g-grandmother Mary Green. We never knew her maiden name other than my g-grandfather was James Lyons Green. He had many children,and three are still living with stories to tell! We never understood why James Lyons father disappeared. All I have had is census records:


1885 Minnesota Territorial and State Censuses, 1849-1905 Record for Mary E Lyons
John Lyons, b. abt 1845 Virginia
Mary E. Lyons, b. abt 1859 Maine
B. A. Pond, b. 1879 N.B.
Bessie Lyons, b. 1882 Minnesota
James William (transcribed as JC) Lyons, b 1884 Minnesota
Louis (LaVisa?) Brown, b 1862 N.B.

1895 Minnesota Territorial and State Censuses, 1849-1905 Record for Man (Mary) Green
Charles E. Green, b. 1863 Canada
Mary E. Green, b. abt 1858 Canada
Blanch Pond, b. abt 1879 Canada
James Lyons, b. 1884 Minnesota
Edward Green, b. 1888 Minnesota
Leslie Green, b. 1893 Minnesota
Elsie Green, b. 1895 Minnesota

I have all of this and more under the Green family tree. Please contact me if you wish.

Hi Cindy,
It is great that I could help clarify a bit. Yes I would like to know any information on the parents of John Lyons and the kids of his and La Visa Brown. Her name is correct and I do believe I have more on her also that I will look for soon.
Thanks
Doug

Any luck on finding more information on La Visa Brown?

I have found a John and Levisa Brown with children in New Brunswick around that time. I cannot confirm if there is a connection yet.
