I am looking for information about the surname BROWN from Holland, Vermont and alternatively, Stanstead, Canada.
The goal is to find the identity of Walter Jesse Brown, brother or half brother of Charles Wesley Brown.
Both boys along with older brother H.H. (Henry Horace) Brown were sent
by train @ 1869 to be adopted or placed out in Lawerence, Kansas.
Walter was Ďadoptedí by Albert Shepherd and Henry was listed as a ward of James Shepherd,
brother of Albert in the 1870 census for Lawrence Douglas, Kansas.

per Sarah Dumas:
I found Horace C. Brown listed in the Mead Hill Cemetery in Holland, VT.
H. H. Brown: b. Mar. 26, 1855 d. July 3, 1925
Horace C. : b (no date) d: December 23, 1869.
(according to the Civil War document and 1860 Census, he was born in 1820, ~1819 in Canada)

Their children: Marietta L.: d. Jan. 5, 1863. Age 10 yrs, 3 months, 9 days
