In Reply to: Lovie Browning by Naseemah Graham of 4261

Hi Naseemah,

Its nice to hear from you again. I will try to find what I can for Lovie.

I have found what I could on census info for Thomas and Lovie Freeman and then for the Browning family of Young and Rose.

Are you sure that Young and Rose are the parents of the Lovie married to Thomas Freeman though.?? I ask because of other info I have found which I will explain below. This other info would give her different parents.

1930 LOWRANCE, MURRAY, OK
FREEMAN
Thomas C., age 43, white, married age age 27, farm operator, general farm, born TX both parents born United States

Lovie, wife, age 32,race blurred out, married at age 18, - for place of birth it had Oklahoma which has line through it and over it is says U.S. Indian, for father it says Chickasaw which has line through it and over it is written Half Blood, from mother it says Half Breed with Chickisaw

BROWNING
Young, age 23, black, farmer, born AR parents born unknown

Rose Ann, age 21, black, born SC both parents born SC

John R., son, age 2, black, born AR father born AR mother born SC

*************************

I have not been able to find the Browning family in 1910 Arkansas or Oklahoma or anywhere else.

I have not been able to find a marriage for Lovey/Lovie and Thomas

** this next info is what has made me wonder about the Lovie married to Thomas Freeman. The following family seems to fit much better with the census info on Lovie with Thomas.


U.S. NATIVE AMERICAN ENROLLMENT CARDS FOR THE FIVE CIVILLIZED TRIBES 1898-1914

Sept. 25, 1902
BROWNING
Lovie Ann, age 6, female - Chickasaw by blood

Josiah, age 11, male

Albert, age 8, male

Bula B., age 1, female

** these were all on same page so I thought I would give you all of them in case they end up being relations. It doesn't give the place they were living at the time of enrollment. It also doesn't say if these kids are all of the same family. I did find another 1900 census with a Lovie Browning and family in
Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory
Here is what it shows.

1900 CHICKASAW NATION, INDIAN TERRITORY
BROWNING
Samuel, age 42, white, born Feb. 1858, married 10 years, born TX both parents born KY

Anna, wife, age 33, Indian, born 1867 (no month shown) married 10 years, 5 children born 4 living, born Indian Terr. , father born U.S mother born MS

Etta, daughter, age 19, white, born Jan. 1881, born TX father born TX mother born MO

Stene, (indexed as Blane) daughter, age 16, white, born Nov. 1883, born TX father born TX mother born MO

Jane, (indexed as Lena) daughter, age 14, white, born March 1886, born TX father born TX mother born MO

Josiah, son, age 8/9 , Indian, born Dec. 1891, born Indian Terr. father born TX mother born Indian Terr.

Albert, son, age 5, Indian, born June 1894, born Indian Terr. father born TX mother born Indian Terr.

Lovie, daughter, age 3/4 , Indian, born July 1896, born Indian Terr., father born TX mother born Indian Terr.

William H., son, age 3/12, Indian, born May 1900, born Indian Terr. father born TX mother born Indian Terr.

**********************************
So Lovie, Josiah and Albert from Enrollment all match with this family. Bula B. would not have been born in time to be in 1900 census.

** this census info matches with what is shown for Lovie in 1930 as born OK and as U.S. Indian

1910 MILL CREEK WARD 2, JOHNSTON, OK
BROWNING
Samuel W., white, age 52, 2nd marriage, married 6 years, proprietor, livery barn, born TX , both parents born KY

Dora E., wife, white, age 24, 2nd marriage, married 6 years, 2 children born 0 living, born OK both parents born TX

Cora E., daughter, white, age 30, single, born TX father born TX mother born NE

Joe S., son, Indian, age 18, single, born OK father born TX mother born OK

Albert W., son, Indian, age 15, born OK father born TX mother born OK

Lovie A., daughter, Indian,age 13, born OK father born TX mother born OK

Bula B., daughter, Indian, age 8, born OK, father born TX mother born OK

WADE
William M. white, age 48, father-in-law, born TX both parents born KY, 2nd marraige, married 18 years, mason, stone

** so now we have Bula so this is definitely the family of children in the Indian Enrollment index.

Mother Anna must have died after 1900 and before 1904 when Samuel remarried. Samuel should show marriage as 3rd not 2nd though.

** so what do you think? Do you have absolute proof that Lovie's parents were Young and Rosie or could it be Samuel and Anna?

I found a family tree on ancestry that shows Samuel married 3 times
1. Lovie glove Young - Jan 1, 1879, Cooke, TX
2. Annie Roberson - 1890
3. Dora E. Wade - April 5, 1904 Mill Creek, Johnson, OK

They show Annie dying 1902 Indian City, Payne OK

They show all the children but no spouses for them which is too bad.

******* I found a site at http://www.okgenweb.org/~okmurray/Murray/mumarriages/marriages_index.htm
and checked the marriages for Murray County OK as that is where Lovie and Thomas were and here are the marriages for Lovie and 2 siblings

FREEMAN T.C. 26 Mill Creek, BROWNING, Lovie Anne 16 Mill Creek
Sept 30, 1911

So I looked for other Brownings of same area and found
THORNTON G.P., 41, Mill Creek BROWNING Etta 34, Mill Creek - no journal entry which I guess means no date shown

BROWNING Joe, 28 Mill Creek, DAVIS Vernon, 19 Mill Creek
March 2, 1913

The names Etta, and Joe match with names of Lovie's siblings (children of Samuel)

The site says that you can send for the marriage record and most contain the names of both parents so that would be conclusive evidence as to parents of Lovie, wife of Thomas Freeman.

Here is another site to check out

http://www.okgenweb.org/~okgarvin/kinard/chicmarriageindex.htm
Here I found marriage:

BROWNING, S W 46 WADE, DORA 19 5 APR 1904 MILL CREEK Hİ121

****************************
Well, this is all for now.

Please let me know where you got the parents o Lovie from and if you are sure they are right as everything I'm finding seems to lean more toward Samuel and Anna.
