My Browning Line...KY-__IL
Posted by: Julie (ID *****0824) Date: March 15, 2007 at 14:14:42
  of 4260

My great grandmother was Maud Browning, b March 1892 in Greene County, Illinois.

Her parents were George T. Browning and Frances Halbert. George was born October 1861 in Illinois.

George's parents were Thomas Browning (b. 1838 in IL) and Mary Ann Mack (I believe Mack was her last name)...

Thomas's parents were John S Browning (b. 1811 in KY) and Martha O'Neal (born 1813 in Kentucky)...

Unsure on John S. Browning's parentage...

Other than Maud and George and Frances I don't have any sources to verify this information other than censuses...

The children of John S. and Martha (O'Neal) Browining were (this is according to the 1850 and 1860 censuses):
William, born 1835
Adeline, b. 1836 (married Franklin Titsworth 9 June 1853 in Pike, Illinois)
Thomas, b. 1838 (married Mary Ann Mack)
Jacob, b. 1839
John, b. 1841
Sarah, b 1843
Mary, b. 1848
Caroline, 1853

John S. is living with Adeline and her family in the 1870 census... I am "assuming" that Martha had died by then... Okay, while relooking on, I found Martha (relation is Mother) living with James and Caroline Davis in Atlas, Pike, Illinois)... I am wondering if this is Caroline Browning and the relationship should be mother-in-law??? Of course IF this is her, where is she in the 1870 census? Did they divorce?

All the children were born in Illinois, again according to the censuses...

The children of Thomas and Mary Ann (according to the 1870-1880 censuses):
Robert, b. 1858
Henrietta, b. 1860
George T, b. 1861
Fannie, b. 1869
Hattie M, b. 1877

The area of Illinois for these families are Pike and Greene County, Illinois...

I am looking for any family to connect with... I have more to share but don't want to post any unnecessary information... LOL

I am mainly looking for some info on John S. Browning... I know Kentucky but not sure where... I am thinking from what I have researched thus far that it could be
Bracken County, KY but of course I need to do more researching to make sure...

Hope to hear from someone that connect to me...
