Thomas Wistar BROWN1

(1858 - )
Thomas Wistar BROWN was born in February 1858 in Pennsylvania.2

He married Margaret Muir COLDSTREAM, daughter of William COLDSTREAM and Fanny Caroline George ANSON, circa 1890.1

He was listed in the 1900 US census as head of the family at 5255 Tennantown Ave in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with his wife Margaret; he claimed he was a janitor who hadn't worked for 7 months - this appears to be either a listing mistake by the enumerator, or a joke on Brown's part. Their children Margaret, Moses, Frances and William were listed as living with them.2

In January 1907 he was convicted on six counts of cruelty to his 6 children (Margerie (15), Moses (14), Francis (12), William (10) and Rhoda and Lydia) and fined $100 on each count. Subsequent events became even more bizarre when their mother and friends were accused of kidnapping the 4 oldest children and forcibly removng them to California (from NY Times files).

He was listed in the 1910 US census as head of the family at 208 Wesley Ave in Ocean City, Cape May, New Jersey, with his wife Margaret; he gave an occupation of 'none'. Their children Roda and Lida were listed as living with them.3
