Sarah Brown
Born: 9 Mar 1787, VA
Died: 23 Dec 1872, Macon County, TN buried in Fagg Cemetery, Macon Co, TN
Father:
Mother: Edith Brown
Married: Hardy Caldwell (1785 - 1864)
Our Child: Martha Rebecca Caldwell

Dance Brown was the brother of Hardy Caldwell's future wife, Sarah. There are several documents that verify that Sarah and Dance Brown were brother and sister. For example, in Sarah's 1872 widow's pension application (for Hardy's service in the War of 1812), one of the affidavits states that Dance Brown was Sarah's brother. John's first wife was Lydia (or Violet), as stated on the deed for a piece of land that he sold in Bedford County, in 1792. Personal property tax rolls from Bedford County in the early 1790's seem to indicate that John Grant lived in the same area as Edith Brown. In 1794, John Grant married Edy Brown, in Bedford County. The information that we now have suggests that Edy or Edith Brown, was the mother of Dance and Sarah Brown. In 1796, John and Edith Grant sold their land in Bedford County and John Grant disappears from the property tax rolls and personal property tax rolls of Bedford County after that year. We don't know if John and Edith Grant moved to Montgomery County, Virginia directly after leaving Bedford, or bought land elsewhere first.

On November 2, 1799, Dance Brown married Keziah Grant. On the marriage license it states that Keziah is the daughter of John Grant. On November 15, 1803, Hardy Caldwell and Sarah Brown, Dance Brown's sister were married, very probably in Montgomery County.

In 1807, Seth and Elizabeth Caldwell sold their land in Russell County to George Johnson. This same year Daniel and Sarah Kirk also sold their land in Russell County to Archelus Jessee. It is most probable that in the winter of 1807-1808, Seth Caldwell, his wife Elizabeth and the families of Hardy and Sarah Caldwell and Daniel and Sarah Kirk, crossed over the Cumberland Gap and eventually settled in Warren County, Kentucky. Hardy and Sarah Caldwell would have crossed over the mountains with two small children, Elizabeth about two years old and William, born just that October. Settlers, such as Hardy Caldwell and his family, needed to bring in a crop before they could leave their old homes and arrive in their new home in time to plant their crops for the coming year or they would starve.
