So it seems that Annie's husband was Alford / Williford or something close to those names . I have not been able to find him but without a birth year it is hard. I had hoped to find a death for him as he had to die between 1890 and 1900. I am assuming he died in Tarrant TX but I suppose it could be another County and Annie could have gone back to her parent's after his death.
I also looked for a marriage for Annie with Browning but did not find one.

I also did not find Annie after 1910 census so I suppose she could have remarried or died.

I did find a possible for Alford

1870 PRECINCT 4, FANNIN, TX
BROWNING
Benjamin, age 33, farmer, born AL

Prunela, age 29, keeping house, born GA

James W., age 10, works on farm, born AL

Alfred Y., age 6, born AL

Lafayette W., age 4, born AL

Walter R., age 2, born TX

James S., age 66, farmer, born NC

Sarah M., age 30, born AL

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

I did not find this Alfred in 1900 census so it is possible he is your fellow. I found another interesting bit.
There is a death record for a William Benjamin Browning born 1885 died 1953 Tarrant TX - father Alford Browning, born AL mother Elizabeth Çarter.

a child who looks like it would be him - listed as Bennie, right age and in Tannin TX living with a Carter family as nephew so I am wondering if perhaps - his mother Elizabeth had died and Alford remarried to Annie and had more children - then Alford died. ?????

I found this William's WW11 draft reg. and his birth place is shown as Honey Grove which is same place shown for birth of Maggie on her death record.

Sorry I could not find more.
