Bedford Brown (1795-1870), son of Jethro Brown of Caswell County, N.C., was involved in politics most of his life, serving in the state legislature and in the United States Senate, 1829-1840. He moved to Missouri in 1843, renouncing politics temporarily, but moved soon again to Virginia, and shortly thereafter returned to Caswell County. His wife was Mary Brown with whom he had four sons William, Bedford Junior (1825-1897), Livingston, and Thomas J.

Livingston Brown married Ann E. Clark, daughter of John Bullock Clark (1802-1885) of Fayette, Mo., state legislator, United States congressman, and member of the Confederate Congress. Livingston Brown and his wife moved to Albermarle County, Va., in 1847. After his wife's 1848 death, Livingston remarried and resettled in Caswell County, N.C., and became involved in North Carolina politics.
