The following was found in "Abstracts of Obituaries in the 'Western Christian Advocae' 1834-1850", c1988.On page 74: Mrs Phebe G. Browning died 15 Sept 1841 near St Louis MO, father: E. Battelle of Ohio, married Rev. Wesley Browning supt. of Indian Missions of Upper MO, Rev. Browning transferred from Pittsburg Conf. to Missoursi Conf. [note - in the original paper this is found on page 8 of issue 152, 14 Jan 1842]
I believe this Rev Browning to be one in the same as the Wesley Browning in Harrison Co OH at an early time period. Harrison Co OH would have been in the Pittsburg Conf. The Browning family that stayed in Harrison Co may turn out to be a sibling of Wesley. The names Wesley and Phebe appear in my Thomas and Hannah Browning Drake line. Any connection?
