Lyle,

I found some info on an A.H. Browning which may be yours. Do you know if he left OH? This fellow went to IA and then on to WI.

1850 DISTRICT 29, LEE, IA
BROWNING
A.H. farmer, age 36 botn OH

Amanda, age 31, born NC

Jessie age 3 born IA

Oliver age 8 born IA

1860 BEAR CREEK, PEPIN, WI
BROWNING
A.H. , farmer age 47 born OH

Oliver age 18 born IA

Jesse age 12, born IA

Viola age 5, born IA

1870 ROCK CREEK, DUNN, WI
BROWNING (in index as BRANNING)
Alex keeps hotel, age 57, born OH

Phoeba, age 56, keeps house, born NY

Jessie age 27, works on farm born IA

Viola age 16, at home, born IA

1880 ROCK CREEK, DUNN, WI
BROWNING

A.H. farmer & keeps hotel, age 67, born OH both parents born PA

Phebe, wife, keeping house, age 67 born NY both parents born NY

in same household
SIBLEY
Ella, grandchild age 9 at home, born WI father born NY mother born unknown

Harry, grandchild age 8, at home, born WI father born NY mother born unknown

** so it seems Alexander remarried - I am assuming Amanda died?
** it is odd that they would not know where the mother of the two grandchildren was born assuming the mother was Viola
But I suppose the grandchildren could be children of a son of Phebe from an earlier marriage of hers in which case she might not know where her daughter-in-law had been born??

So I looked for a marriage between Alexander and Phebe and found in Wisconsin marriages.

A.H. BROWNING married July 7, 1861 Pepin County WI

it does not show wife so I looked for all marriages that date in Pepin Co.

The only other name that shows up is PHEBE SIBLEY so there is the connection.

Odd though - I also checked for marriage of Jesse Browning and found him listed as married Feb. 22, 1873 in Dunn County. When I tried to find a wife for him by searching date only the only name that comes up under that date is Jessee(spelling in index). He had to marry someone named Mary but she is not listed??

1880 ROCK CREEK, DUNN, WI
BROWNING
Jessee, farmer age 32, born IA father born OH mother born NC

Mary, keeping house, age 31 born IN father born MD mother born PA

Oliver, son, age 5, at home born WI

Orin , son, age 4, at home born WI

Ora, daughter, age 3, at home born WI

Orpha ,daughter, age 2, at home born WI

No name, daughter, age 1/12 born May born Wi

all children show father born IA mother born IN

That is all I have right ow but I am looking to see if I can find more on Thomas and Sarah for you.

Carolyn L.
