I am seeking information on the John Brown family who lived in KY. I know they lived in Daviess Co. in April of 1870; my husband's ggrandmother, Susan Ethel Brown, was born there to John L. Brown and Mary Ann McCartney (or maybe McCarty or McCarthy). I have been looking for information on John for several years and have not been able to locate him on any census records. His other children (that I know of) were: Elizabeth Catherine Brown, b. April 1854, Milburn A. Brown, b. abt. 1858, John Parris Brown, b. 1862 and Susan. Mary Ann's parents were William McCartney (or other variables of that name) and Katherine Kenneth (or Kennett). I know that Mary Ann left Kentucky and went to Missouri; Elizabeth married there in 1872, Susan married there in 1887. I'm not sure if John went with her or not, or if he died in KY. Mary Ann left Missouri and settled in Tulare,CA around 1903 where she would live there, as a widow until her death in 1923. She was also listed as a widow in the 1880 Federal Census for Benton Co., MO at age 48. Can anyone help ?? Thanks for your time!
