Abraham Brown & Rebecca Harbin

In some ways Abraham Brown and Rebecca Harbin have been the most difficult to trace. While they lived in Elbert County and were rather prominent, their records end in Elbert County with the disappearance and apparent death of Abraham Brown. They next time we find Rebecca Brown, she is living in Campbell County, Georgia near her son Middleton W. Brown.

Abraham Brown was born in Virginia in 1778. We do not have a death date for Abraham but a few sites that are maintained by people claiming to be family say that Abraham died in 1842. His wife Rebecca Harbin was born in 1787 in South Carolina. Her death date has been listed at 1861. The following children were born to Abraham Brown and Rebecca Harbin:
