Daniel Brown Cemetery: Notes

Daniel Brown cemetery The two Daniel Browns, father and son, were among the very earliest of Jerusalem's settlers and devout followers of the Universal Friend. The old house immediately west of the sharp turn in County House Road was built by Daniel Brown Sr., adjacent to a fabulous natural spring.

A family cemetery was sited at the back of the field behind the house, near the edge of the ravine. The markers are all uninscribed fieldstones set on edge, consistent with the practice followed by some of the Universal Friends. The following list suggests family members the location of whose burial is otherwise unknown.

This ground is mentioned in one or two old lists. It was located for the compilers by Jerusalem historian Jane Davis.
