She was listed in the 1900 US census at 5255 Tennantown Ave in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with her husband Thomas; 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

She was listed in the 1910 US census at 208 Wesley Ave in Ocean City, Cape May, New Jersey, with her husband Thomas; he gave an occupation of 'none'. Their children Roda and Lida were listed as living with them.5
