Searching for information regarding my great grandmother, Mary Ann Corder Brown born in Shelby county, Tx. Married to Stephen Henry Brown Dec. 1867 and they had 6 sons, all born in Texas. Henry was born in Herkimer county NY and moved to Texas in 1852. Mary Ann & Henry are buried in Myrtle Cemetery/Rock Island Columbus Tx. Henry joined Terry's Texas Rangers in 1861.
Mary Ann was the daughter of Reuban Stone Corder and his first wife, Lizzie Moore. We have no information regarding Lizzie Moore, her parents or siblings except that Lizzie was born in Texas. Reuban was born in 1821 in TN and died in Shelby County, Tx in 1878, buried in Wilson Haywood Cemetery. I have a website with a photo of his headstone. If anyone would like the address please let me know and I will post it. Reuben and his father (William A. Corder) were Citizens of the Republic of Texas.
Oral family histroy states that we are part Cherokee. Would love to find the connection. Any information about the family would be greatly appreciated!
