States: Georgia: Polk
If you have ANY information about JOHN F. BROWN, born 1859 in Paulding County, please contact me. His wife was AMANDA CARLTON. Both are interred at Raccoon Creek Cemetery in Bartow County, GA. John and Amanda have children who relocated to Polk County. According to the grave marker, John died in 1928. He is last shown on the 1910 census. On the 1920 census Amanda and daughters Emma and Nancy are living in Polk County - "Manda" is shown as the head of the household and married. By the 1930 census, Nancy has married Ellis Thomas Brumbelow and Amanda and daughter Emma are enumerated with them. It has been said that John F. was admitted to Georgia State Sanitarium - apparently, before 1920. I cannot locate an official death record for him. The date on the monument at Raccoon may be incorrect. I am the GG granddaughter of John and Amanda, great granddaughter of their son George, granddaughter of George's son Chester, and the daughter of Chester's son Johnny. Thanks very much for your help.
