Thomas Pitchlynn Brown's Claims

GR 75, Roll 13, 7RA-324:
Thomas Pitchlynn Brown aka Thomas B Brown claimed to be related to the Pitchlynn family. His mother was said to be Margaret or Peggy Pitchlynn and his father was Rowland Brown. He was denied enrollment into the Choctaw Nation on the testimony of Rhoda Howell. She said that she didn't know of anyone by that name in her family. She also gave a disposition explaining and listing all the Pitchlynn family members that she was aware of. She added one other brother, called Charley Pitchlynn and told about Jack's family members. Jack had three sons: Hiram, John II and Levi (who died at the age of 10 years old). Rhoda also explained that she was with her brother Thomas Jefferson Pitchlynn when he died. She said he died during the Civil War and is buried under a big cherry tree on the other side of old Doaksville. Thomas Brown was told as a child that his grandfather, his mother's father was John Pitchlynn Jr., known as Jack Pitchlynn. In any case, Thomas Pitchlynn Brown was never admitted into the Choctaw Nation. He could not prove that he was a member of the Pitchlynn family. If anyone has information on this family or any other Pitchlynn connection, please feel free to post it on this Pitchlynn web site. Thanks. Bob
