Facts and Events
Azubah, through the second marriage of her grandfather Amzi Doolittle to Hannah Miller Barber, would have been something akin to step-first-cousins with Amzi Doolittle Barber. These "cousins" both end up in Ashtabula, OH by 1860, arriving about the same time. Did they go together?

My Mother and the women in her family had kept written records that go as far back as Azubah and Jonathan Brownell. The only thing she said about her (Azubah's) father was that he was a traveling minister and that he was a "ladies man".
This is taken from an old piece of paper (I believe my great grandmother (Ida Mary Dix) wrote it): Johnathan Brownell, Oct 11, 1792, Hoosick, Renssilaer Co. died May 8, 1875, Kelloggsville, Ashtabula Co., Ohio. Azubah Hicks, born March 2, 1796 (it doesn't say where, I originally thought in Ohio but now believe it was in New York State, somewhere.), died Apr 6, 1881, Kelloggsville, Ashtabula Co., Ohio. (LDS shows in the 1880 U.S. Census that she was, 87 yrs old, widowed and living with her son, Charles E. Brownell, her name was spelled Azabah. Census place was Sheffield, Ashtabula, Ohio. Family History Library Film #1254992, NA Film #T9-0992, Page #606A)
