I have gathered some information on Browns of Searcy, Ark if anyone is interested. I am also looking for information on a John Henry Brown born 1868 or one of his sons Eulous/Eulys/Nolas Brown born 1899. I have see his name listed all three ways.
Here are some things that I have found.
James Brown Born Oct. 1844 (Tenn.) Spouse Martha J.(Brown) (Ark.) Married in 1864 I found a son listed living with them Charley Brown 13
Other sons and their spouses and children
William Franklin Brown Born:1865 Spouse Elisbeth (Brown) Married in 1888 1900 census shows 6 children of their own Charley F. Brown 11 William F. Brown 9 Goley Brown 7 Maud Brown 4 Dottie Brown 2 Faytt Brown 9 (No info as to his story)
James Henry Brown Born 1868 Spouse Viola Dunn (Brown) Married 1894 Children from an earlier marraige to Rebecca Lawrance) Dorah Brown 10 James W. Brown 8 Arrah Brown 6 (Ira later in life)
Ida Brown 7 (stepchild of Viola's) Minnie Brown 4 Nolas Brown 1 (Eulys was his name later on and I don't know why?) Two other children came after the census Roda born in 1903 and died in 1912 Mary Lucy in 1905
I also found a Mary Killbrell who lived with them that is listed as an aunt of James Brown. She was listed as 70 years old in 1900 as was a widow.
Thomas W. Brown Born 1874 Spouse Malinda A. (Brown)Married in 1894 Children Orah Brown 3 Willie Brown 1 Lonnie Brown 10
Flecher Columbus Brown Born 1878 Spouse Allice (Brown) Married in 1899 Children Tillie Brown 5 (Former marriage or out of wedlock)
James Brown and Martha also had two daughters Mary Brown age 8 in 1880 and Nora Brown aged 5 at the time. I also show another son named John Brown who in 1880 was 13.
In an 1860 census, I found a George Brown age 30 living Bear Creek, Searcy, Ark. Spouse was Katherine Brown aged 26. Kids listed: George Brown 10 James Brown 7 Robert Brown 3 Issac Brown 5 Jane Brown 4.5
If you have any additional information on any of this. It would be greatly appreciated.
My quest started over my ten year old daughter wanting for some unknown reason wanting to know everything about who we are and where we came from.
