Hales Brown; her youngest was Colville Brown. I have some info indicating
her name was Harriett Coleman, but I'm guessing the surname was really
Colville, and that her mother's maiden name was Hales, so I'm trying to find
a Colville-Hales marriage in Virginia. I'm thinking it may be James
Colville, since the other boys in the family have Brown family names, and
possibly Sarah Hales, since one daughter is named after the father's
grandmother and the other is named after Harriet herself. Absolutely
completely guesswork, and probably hard to find and prove, since the time
frame is mid-18th century (based on dates for the Brown family), and
Virginia was a pretty big place back then, but it gives me something to work
I've been using AFT forever, but developed a glitch last month--probably
corrupted data, since I reloaded the AFT program and am still having the
problem, even after running check/repair numerous times. I just got Family
Tree Maker from Ancestry, and am hoping that if I load the data as a gedcom,
it might load in as data with mistakes in it, but fixable mistakes.
Otherwise I'll have to print out all the family reports and re-enter 2400
people by hand. The prospect does not thrill me.
