Benjamin Kinsey Walker Brians married Sarah Reed in 1857 in Bates county, according to the IGI. Benjamin was born 02 Dec 1835 in Jackson County, MO. He and Sarah moved west. Their son, John Francis Brians, was born in 1875 in Sonoma County, California. John applied for an SSN at the age of 93. I have a copy of his application. That and the IGI entries are all I have. Does anyone have their parents, or more siblings for John Francis?

Kinsey and Walker sound like somebody's family names to me, and the fact he had two middle names is odd for the times. He could have been named after Benjamin Kinsey Walker, too.
