Hello everyone... I am trying to figure out where my 4th great grandfather was born in KY...
John S. Browning was born around 1810 in Kentucky... He married Martha O'Neil in Pike, IL in 1830.In 1840 they are living in Pike Co., MO... By 1850, they are living in Pike Co. IL... In 1860, living in Camp Point, Adams County. In 1870 he is living with his daughter, Adeline.He is listed as insane but I have heard he was an alcoholic and Adeline was taking care of him.
I have seen other Brownings in the area born around the same time as him also in KY... Mainly a William C. and a Nancy Browning.Where they siblings?Where in KY did they come from? Who were the parents?
I read where Nancy was born in Bourbon Co., KY and her parents were Jacob and Sally (Morris) Browning who were married around 1806 in Bourbon Co.... Could this be them?
I see a death date for John as 1873 but do nto have a source and can not get the submitter to email me.
Anybody have any suggestions where I could look that might lead me to a place of birth for John?
