I have the following information concerning Hugh Lide's wife, Laura Brown.
Laura was a daughter of Jeremiah H. Brown, a large land-owner of a plantation known as "Louden" in Sumter County. Jeremiah had moved from South Carolina to Alabama in 1835.
...From research on "Louden" plantation- conducted by Judge Wilbur E. Dearman, who obtained his information from Mrs. Ada McCain James, the owner, the records of Louden, information of the White and McCain families, the records of the Probate Office of Sumter County, and Owen's History of Alabama.
Laura married a successful planter from near Jones Bluff, Alabama.
