|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.
