I am looking for information on my Great great Grandfather, George Washington Brown. A VERY common name I am learning. He claimed on census records to be born in 1844 in Tennessee. I have information on him after 1880 in Marion County, Texas. He was married to a Josephine unknown from Kentucky. They married in 1874. She was born in 1854 and died in 1906. He ran off and left her and the kids sometime between 1890 and 1900. I do not know where he went until later in life when he moved in with his eldest son, George Herbert (my great grandfather) in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana. That's where he died. Does anyone know anything about him or his wife prior to 1874? His death certificate was incomplete, so I am looking for help elsewhere. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!
