With aname of Brown, you want miracles?I'm just kidding, I have Jones, so I know what that is like.
Have you checked tax records, land records and probates for Wise Co, TX?You can obtain microfilmed TX county tax records on interlibrary loan from Austin, through your local public library.If you know his wife's name, even better.Taxes are every year, and when his name disappears and his wife's appears, you know she is a widow.That will narrow it down to within a year of when he died.Caution, do be careful, if his name is not on one year, and his wife's does not appear, keep checking.Don't ask me why, but I've had ancestors who did not show up one year, but were there again the following year.
Check for probate records.If he wrote a will it, of course, would be written prior to his death, and probate would be after his death, but sometimes they will actually give the death date for the court record.
I'd like to make a suggestion for your queries.I checked your message history to see if you gave anything on when Aaron was born, or how oldhe was whenhe died.You need to include more dates, or approximate dates, in your queries -- especially with the very common surnames.I was looking for his age to see if he might have had minor children.If there was any estate, the court might appoint a guardian for minor children, yes even if the mother was alive.By that time period mothers were applying for the gurdianship.I had one in 1889 in Wilbarger Co, TX apply and receive the guardianship of her children.Guardians did not physically take the children into their homes, they just had to report to the court any transactions of the estate, such as selling land etc.This was to protect the interests of minor children.
