Her death was a loss for Michigan genealogy but I have found that she was also a cousin. This is what I found this morning posted by a new-found cousin on my Facebook newsfeed:
My cousin's great-grandfather, George Washingtron Pattison, was my 3rd great-grandmother, Catherine Pattison Robbins' nephew. So Eliza, Barbara's grandmother, was also Catherine's niece. So Barbara Burt Brown was my 3rd cousin twice removed. I admit, I had to use my genie program to figure it all out, way too confusing for a Monday morning. I am going to be busy updating my genie program with all of the new data today. Now I am taking a more personal interest in the work of this great lady.
