Residence of Geoge Washington Brown

This is Foxie's 3rd Great Uncle George Washington Brown who married her third great-grandfather's sister in New York, and then came with the family to Warren County, IL. George W. Brown invented the corn planter in Warren County, IL, and moved his factory to Galesburg, IL.  He was Mayor of Galesburg for 1 year.  The above lake at the top left corner George made and was called Lake George.  He also made another lake called Lake Washington.  They were both later renamed.  This I've never understood.  Would like to know if there are descendants out there of George and Maria Terpening Brown.  If you are please email me.... This Photo takes up two pages in the History book.
