The Center-Stewart Family of Austin,Texas Updated September 29, 2003
About Our Family Research
I really don't know very much about Simon Center, Sr. except that his last name may have been Brownlow. His father's name was William Brownlow and he later changed his last name to Center. William married Ella who was part indian. Simon has a sister name Homerzelle Center-Newton of San Antonio, Tx. and I remember a brother named Jessie Center. Simon married Ida Mae Steward and had 10 children in Yorktown, Texas. I understand that Simon and Ida were married in Cuero, Texas in 1927. Their childrens names are: Lonnie Ray, Willie Mae, Herburt, Sylvester, Marilyn, Herman, Simon, Jr. Oscar, William and Betsie who died as a child. This family later moved to Austin.
