Early Browning

Browning is not my primary line but I do have three early Browning marriages in Culpepper, Virginaia from the 1700s. Some of the common families associated with Browning were were Jett, Triplett and Norman. These families were highly mobilt moving between VA, KY, TN, PA and NC almost as easily as one goes to the grocery store today. They also moved quite often between Culpeper and Fauquier, too.

Browning isn't easy to trace due to a scholarly edition published in early 1900s that left one whole generation out. One of the granddaughters in the missing generation was outraged because the author stated her Browning grandpa died in infancy.. He lived to be 90 and had many descendants.

You arre not alone, many families have this type of problem, in fact I have it in a Browning marriage. We're still not sure who the parents are due to a missing branch - ,uch let alone knnowing how the Brownings are related. .

I hope you all have better luck.
