From Bill Putnam's information on the Brown family:

JAMES BROWN JR. was born January 17, 1681 at Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania.

Ben M. Angel notes: This misdate was apparently the result of confusion over conversion of pre-1752 Quaker Calendar dates. John Marshall writes in the Quaker Calendar date verbatim in his family tree page:

Generation 4: James Brown was born 1mo 17 1680/81 at Marcus Hook, PA.

PROOF:

-------"The William Wade Hinshaw Index to Penn. Quaker Meeting Records" Vol X - New Garden M.M. established in 1718, Chester Co, - pg 19 (Not sure this is the right James Brown), Sept 12, 1720 Dismissed for 'MOU- Married out of Unity'. I don't see any other James born early enough other than this one.
