Daughter of Joshua and Sarah Clyburn
1785 - 1853

Sally's descendant, Mike Brown, near her headstone.
Sarah (called "Sally") was born to Joshua and Sarah Clyburn in about 1785, according to the 1850 census, and thus she was about three years older than her brother Ephraim.[1850 United States Census, District 10, Jefferson County, Illinois, accessed through Ancestry.com. See also Verner M. Claybourn and Harriette Pinnell Threlkeld, Supplement to the Claybourn Family (Threlkeld, 1979).] In that same census she gave South Carolina as her place of birth, but her daughter Jane said in the 1880 census that her mother was born in North Carolina and her father in Ireland.[1880 United States Census, Rome, Jefferson County, Illinois, accessed through Ancestry.com.] Given that the present Carolina border was not set until 1815, the discrepancy can be explained.

Sally married a man named James Brown. A professional genealogist hired by Lucille Brown McClure, a descendant of James and Sally, to trace James Brown came to the conclusion that he was much older than Sally. Their marriage must have taken place near the time of Sally's father's death about 1799.

According to Lucille, members of James Brown's family were friends and neighbors with the family of future U.S. President Andrew Jackson in the Waxhaw Settlement, a community of Scotch-Irish immigrants along the border between North and South Carolina.[James K. Polk, the 11th President of the United States, was also born in the Waxhaws district, in what is now Pineville, North Carolina.] Andrew Jackson gave James Brown a wooden box, possibly from a compass, with an inscription attesting to the friendship. This box was passed down through male descendants of James and Sally's grandson James A. Brown (1832-1901).[As of 2015 its location was in Jacksonville, Florida. Much to the dismay of Lucille, Clyde Anderson Brown (1923-1995) threw out the Brown family Bible that had been passed down along with the box.]

There does not seem to be 1810 census records for Smith County, Tennessee, but we know James Brown died in early 1813, leaving behind Joshua (age twelve), Nancy (age nine), Martha (age seven), William (age five), Sarah (age three), and not-yet-born Jane, who arrived in April 1813. Jane Ryder Koch, a descendant of James and Sally, went to Smith County and transcribed James's will. It reads as follows:

I, James Brown of the county of Smith and State of Tennessee, being very sick and weak in body, but of perfect mind and memory, thanks be given to God; calling unto mind the mortality of my body, and knowing that it is appointed for all men once to die, do make and ordain this my last will and testament; that is to say, principally and first of all, I give and recommend my soul into the hand of Almighty God, that give it, and my body I recommend to the earth, to be buried in a decent Christian burial, at the discretion of my executors: nothing doubting but at the General Resurrection, I shall receive the same again, by the mighty power of God, and as touching such worldly estate wherewith it has pleased God to bless me in this life, I give demise, and dispose of the same in following manner and form.

  • I give and bequest unto my two sons Joshua and William Brown seventy-five acres of land each, laying in Smith County, State of Tennessee, upon the waters of Smiths fork the place where I now live.

  • Also I give and bequest unto the child that my wife is now a going with [sic], eighty three acres and ninety six square poles of the same tract of land that I now live on, provided it be a son, if it be a girl child for it to be sold and equally divided among my daughters.

  • Also I give and bequeath unto my beloved wife Sally Brown all the profits arising from all my land for the support of her self and my children until they all come of age provided she does not make waste of the property. But if she does make waste of the property then for Na-thaniel Ferries and John Allen to take it from her and put it to the best use they can for the support of the children until they come of age. But if my wife gets married then for her to have one third of the land and moveable property during her life and then for it to go to the children.

  • All my moveable property to be sold to pay all lawful demands that may come against the estate and for the care of my family.

  • I appoint Nathaniel Farrier and John Allen whole and sole executors.

In this last will and testament, I do hereby declare and confirm this to be my last will and tes-tament in witness whereof I have set my hand and seal this the 22nd day of December in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and twelve signed, sealed, published and delivered. Declared by the said same Brown to be his last will and testament in the presence of us who at his request and in the presents of each other subscribe our witness hereto.

In the 1820 census for Smith County, Sally Brown is the family head of household consisting of one male age 10-15 (William), one male age 16-25 (Joshua), one female under age 10 (Jane), two females age 10-15 (Martha and Sarah), one female age 16-25 (Nancy), and one female age 26-44 (Sally).

By the 1830 census, the family had moved to Jefferson County, Illinois, and in 1850 Sally was sixty-five years old and living there with her daughter Jane. Sally Brown is buried in Antioch Cemetery in Jefferson County.[Much of the information on Sally comes from Patricia Brown, who married a descendant of James and Sally, in correspondence between her and CGS in 2013.] Her headstone (now broken in two) says she died in 1853 at age seventy-three. Other Brown family members are buried with Sally, including her son Joshua and his family.
