The Brownawells pictured above trace their ancestry back to Matthias Braunawell who was born in Germantown, which was at one time a suburb of Philadelphia in the late 1700's and early 1800's. Matthias Braunewell moved to the Carlisle Springs area of Cumberland County in the early 1800's and sold a portion of his property to the congregation of the Lutheran and Reformed Churches for the purpose of erecting a stone church and also to establish a cemetery. This church is now recognized as the St. Mathias Lutheran and Reformed Church. Matthias' children and grandchildren established families in Cumberland, Dauphin, Perry and Lebanon Counties...
and spread out all over the state of Pennsylvania and throughout the United States, from there.
