Looking for the family of Thomas Edward Brown, b. abt 1828 in East Tennessee, possibly Roane County. On 21 Nov 1850 Tom Brown was in Murray County Georgia where he married Sophia D Green, daughter of the late Don [Dan] Green and Nancy Drummond Green Rose, both formerly of Roane County, TN. Tom and Sophia had daughter Mary J born in Georgia. From there the family moved to Arkansas, most likely with the Sophia’s brother Marcus Lafayette Green. Children of Tom and Sophia born in Arkansas were: William F (1856),James Douglas (1858), Sarah M (1859) and Martha A Brown (1860). Immediately following the Civil War Thomas E Brown and family were in North Texas where their youngest child Ellen D was born in 1866. By 1869 the Brown family, with Marcus L Green and family were in Marion County, OR. Tom E Brown died between 1890 and 1900, probably in Morrow County OR. It is uncertain when and where his wife Sophia died. James Douglas Brown, son of Thomas E and Sophia, died in Columbia County WA in 1936. Daughter Martha A married John T Porter and died about 1900 in Yakima Co WA.
Any help in locating the parents and/or origins of this Thomas E Brown would be greatly appreciated.
