Our research shows America is home to many different lines of the Brownlow family and our specific line entered the United States at South Carolina.
Information gathered by those before us lead us to believe the first of our family to come here was William (born about 1725) and Jane Brownlow entering the US at South Carolina. His family included Jane, John, James, Sarah and Mary. Both John and James continued the family line.
John had three sons, John A., Joseph G and James. Our specific line comes from James and his family that lived in South Carolina and Georgia. James had two sons, George Washington Brownlow and William Monroe Brownlow.
In addition to the Brownlow Family you will find Brownlowe, Mirick\Merrick, Smith, Boykin, Criswell, Sudberry, Rogers, Chapman, Bain and many others.
