I am looking for Alexander Brown born in Missouri. Married Augusta Jones. This is during the period of 1800- 1860's My fellow researcher and I think there may be Native American bloodlines in the family. My father thinks that it is definitely so. Have very little to go on. This family may have moved to Florida at an early time. Alexander and Augusta are listed on the 1870 census as "works on farm" in FL. He was born in MO. They had Jackson, Albert,Susan, Missy, Harriet. He was probably born in 1838. Augusta Jones was born in 1840. Does anyone have any info about this family tree? I wish I knew the County in Mo but I don't. At the time of the 1870 census in FL he was 32 yrs old and Augusta was 30. The children range in ages from 10-2. If anyone has lists of marriages in MO, wills, deeds, etc. for both families please point me in the right direction.

Charles Towers- born circa 1845 to Jesse and Mary Murphy Towers in Milltown/St. Stephen, New Brunswick, Canada. Last record of Charles was the Canadian 1881 census, which enumerated Charles at age 36, living with his widowed mother in St. Stephen. Sometime between 1881 and 1900, Charles relocated.
