Thomas Pitchlynn Brown was my Great grandfather. The knowledge I have about him is from the family and not any records. The Brown's believed they were decended from the famous Pitchlynn's. However, I read once and I can't quote the book right now but there was an Choctaw Indian who "took" the name of John Pitchlynn and he had a son named Peter. I think that is how the family got the Pitchlynn name. I was told when the Brown's went to enroll for the Indian lands they needed someone to vouch for them. They asked "Tec" Wright Gill who was a daughter of Peggy Pitchlynn (by husband Wright) to sign. She always denied there was Indian blood and refused to sign for them. My Dad said the Brown's were offered land for a bribe and one of them asked if they would get a receipt. Of course the answer was no and they didn't get the land.
