    • William went by the name of Henry during his life. He married Elenor Jane Townsend,(known by Jane) dau. of Uriah Townsend of Dresden, Yates County,NY. At the time of his marriage, Henry was living in Cameron, NY according to " The Vital Records of Western New York" There is another birthdate of 2 Feb 1815. I don't know which one is correct.

      In a letter written from Cameron, March 15, 1880, Charles Loghry, husband to Juliette Brown, sister to Henry; writes to his son, William Henry Harrison Loghry (Henry,the above's namesake) and mentions 'Uncle Henry', William Henry Harrison Brown.
