Nursery Rhyme Lyrics, Origins and History

 

Investigation has shown that there was an 'Abram Brown' who settled in the “Town of Eldena” in 1849 on land belonging to the Illinois Central Railroad. No other information is available, nor is it clear whether Abram Brown was one and the same man as in the Nursery Rhyme.

The picture of North Queen Street in Pennsylvania seemed to capture the idea of a railway in an early American town, complete with covered wagon.

Help us to maintain our history and heritage through the words and lyrics of old Nursery Rhymes like 'Old Abram Brown'

Old Abram Brown is dead and gone,
You'll never see him more;
He used to wear a long brown coat
That buttoned down before.
