Ama Brownell of Vermont

Ama (possibly Amy or Anna) Brownell was born about 1778. One of four daughters born to Ichabod Brownell and Elizabeth Stanley Brownell, Ama was most likely born in Canaan, Connecticut. [Lincoln C. Brownell, Notes on the Brownell Family in Vermont (Privately Printed, 1988), 5-6.] About 1792, Ichabod and Elizabeth moved their family to Winooski Falls in Colchester, Vermont. Ichabod managed a tavern and worked as a blacksmith. [Brownell, Notes, 5.] According to a Munson family history, Ama was married on March 25, 1795, to William Munson, who had moved from Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The marriage took place in Colchester. [Myron Andrews Munson, The Portsmouth Race of Monsons, Munsons, Mansons (New Haven, Conn.: Tuttle, Morehouse & Taylor, 1910), 33.] During the course of approximately twenty-four years, Ama gave birth to fourteen children, one of whom was Artemisia Munson. William, a lumberman, became a prominent figure in early Colchester. [Munson, The Portsmouth Race, 33-34.] Ama died on March 23, 1844. Sixty-six years old at the time of her death, she was buried in Munson Cemetery.
