Hezekiah Brown, my first cousin, 8 times removed, was born on 7 May 1725, to Daniel Brown and Mary Sprague. Mary was the daugher of Jonathan Sprague and Mehitable Holbrook, my 8 times great grandparents. Patience Sprague, one of their other daughters, was my 7 times great grandmother and Mary’s sister.
Why do I bring up Cousin Hezehiah on this his 294th birthday? Simple, with a name like Hezekiah you deserve a celebration!!
