If you are not familiar with WEV's Genealogy of American Silversmiths project, you should be. WEV's project is one of the best resources on the Internet. It links together, by blood or marriage, more than 1000 makers as far ranging as Robert Sanderson, working in Boston c.1640 to William Herbert Thurber who saw his family's company, Tilden-Thurber of Providence RI, into the 20th century..


I see you have a listing for Ebenezer Brown.

I was wondering about Samuel C. Brown (1791-1849) was he a relation to Ebnezer Brown?

Puppy? What puppy? wink

Judging by the family trees I've seen of the Connecticut born Samuel Brown, he does not have a near relative with the name Ebenezer Brown.

However, it is interesting to note that in the 1850 U S Federal Census for New York City there is a Samuel C Brown who was born in Massachusetts in about 1783, a silversmith and insane. His son Samuel who was born about 1829 in New York was a Gold Pen Maker in the same census.

The appropriate mark for each Samuel Brown is a mystery to me.
