Note: Jemuel Brown, the minor in the petition above, was the only child of Jemuel Brown of Fairforest Creek who died in Union Co. in 1815. His widow, Sarah Brown, remarried to Robert A. Claybrook who was guardian of the infant Jemuel W. Brown in 1821. One item in the final accounting of Jemuel Brown's estate mentions “Cash rec'd. in Virginia.” The estate also received money from D. B. Rice, Paymaster of the 1st Regiment, South Carolina Militia. The estate was administered by Capt. William Rountree and the widow Sarah Brown until Sarah remarried, when her husband Robert A. Claybrook took over the administration. The estate of Batte Birdsong of the town of Unionville figured prominently in the administration of Jemuel Brown. Birdsong was a bachelor, may have been in business with Jemuel Brown.
