Others were listed as children of John Thomas. The suggestion would be that Catherine and John did not have children from their marriage, but from earlier marriages. His children were: Leonard Taylor Thomas, Martha Jackson, Mary Hole, Joseph Thomas, to the last three, a shilling each. Exrs: wife and son Leonard T. Thomas. Wit: Charles Binnis & Simon Binnis

  5.   Katherine Semple or (Sample) Browns parents died when she was a small child. A Quaker brother and sister, Joshua and Mary Baker, adopted her and raised her in the Quaker faith. At the time of her marriage to John Doggett Brown, he had never "gone in the meeting" (he did afterwards). Because of that, they went across the street, where the ceremony was performed by a healing preacher. The Wedding supper was at her girlhood home, Waterford Va. many miles from Leesburg. In the old part of Waterford, there are quaint stone houses and the meeting House is stone.
    During the War of 1812 they lived in Leesburg. John Doggett Brown was in the Culpeper Minute Men Militia. Moving from there to Alexandria, VA in 1818 and lived in Yates Gardens with Grandmother Baker who married Wm. Yates.
    Note: Who is Grandmother Baker? I assume the parents of the brother and sister that adopted them, Joshua & Mary Baker.
