What fun! Wish that I knew if my Aledo Browns were part of this line. My great grand uncle, Loami Brown (b. 1840) and his wife Amanda nee Melton lived in Mercer County. First in Eliza and then Aledo by 1900 (census) where Loammi died in 1912. Their children: Jennie, Richard, Minnie and Loami, Jr. Loami's siblings: Benjamin Franklin (my great grandfather), Susan, and Richard Gibson (b. in Mercer Co.)
Any idea if this Brown family is the same? Please reply to gramssearch4family "at" gmail.com as I'm not getting notifications of message board posts.
Thanks and every good wish!
