There is a disagreement in the family tradition that Adam Brown immigrated with his family when he was ten (ca 1843) and what he reported on the 1900 census (that he had been in the United States for 35 years and immigrated in 1865). There is also inconsistency in his reported place of birth (MS in 1870, CT in 1880 and Ireland in 1900).
