Robbie, I am not working the Nicholas Browning line but am a descendant of John Browning, father of Nicholas, thru a brother of Nicholas, David C. Browning, b. 28 Feb. 1782, died. in 1861 in Lawrence Co. MO. David is my ancestor. I have gathered some info on Nicholas which I would be happy to send you. Does the Browning Bible you mention verify that Nicholas is the son of John, Sr. of Burke Co. NC?
