Mack Thomas Kirksey was the son of Amanda J Brown and Jim W Kirksey. Amanda was the daughter of Samuel Dawson Brown and Frances J Hambrick. Samuel came from Simpson Co, Miss. about 1857, and was in Caldwell Co, TX, then Fayette Co, TX.He died around 1881, location not yet known. Mack lived with his uncle Joseph Berry Brown, a Texas Ranger, in 1900 and 1920.He is married to Vera Eugenia Spence in DeWitt Co, TX in 1930. I think he died 4/26/1965 in Bexar Co, TX. If you are connected with this family, please let me know as I am putting to together a genealogy for the Brown Family.
