John Landrum Brown -- LANDRUM / BROWN surnames

Hello Cousins (and I know you're out there),

I am Dean Franklin "Frank" Coffman, Jr., great grandson of John Landrum Brown and Eunice Emiline (Bunyan) Brown. I've been having, as one might expect, a very difficult time in tracing the "John Brown" line -- a fairly common name to say the least. I'm sure (per my maternal grandmother, Almeda May (Brown) Arnold, that his middle name was "Landrum." Thus far, I've been operating under the assumption of an Ohio birthplace for John L. Brown, but recent discoveries lead me to Gallatin Co. KY. Hence this post.

Born about 1845 (give or take a few years) John L. Brown enlisted in a Union KY INF regiment (I believe the 11th KY) and was, according to my grandmother, underage when he joined up. He was wounded in the campaign somewhere before Atlanta (possibly Stone's River) and would have seen action at Shiloh/Pittsburg Landing as well as other places.

He married Eunice Emiline "Emma" Bunyan in Moultrie Co. Illinois and lived his later life in that area, buried in Bement, IL./Cerro Gordo area

If you are a descendent of the same BROWN (or LANDRUM?) lines, or if you have info to share, I'd be very pleased to hear from you.

Best Regards,
Cousin Frank
