Hamilton Brown was my great grandfather on my mother's side. That would make the young girl (Hamilton's daughter) who saved one of the younger men, my great-great aunt. Being from Callaway County, the assumption is that they were Confederates. As far as I know, he didn't serve during the war, however we haven't delved into his history to a great degree, but have pursued others.
My grandfather Paul I. Brown lived/farmed on the rangeline road, directly W. of Auxvasse.
I was born and raised in Ralls County and went to H.S. at Vandalia, Audrain, Co. One sister, Carolyn McBride, still lives in Vandalia and is a member of the Audrain Co. Hist. Society.
