States: Missouri: Christian
Don't know if this is any connection or not, possibly friends. My McDaniel and Brown ancestors were from Christian County, MO and moved to Montgomery County, KS (the area outside Independence, later in Independence). They first moved sometime after 1900, but then when Pulaski Jane Nash-Brown died in childbirth n 1911 they moved back to MO so family could take care of all the kids. Her husband John William Brown married Sarey (Sarah?) Johnson in 1915 in Christian County, MO. They moved back to Kansas shortly after, living on the land that is now the Cessna Airplane Plant. John and Pulaski's daughter Iva Pearl Brown married William Jasper McDaniel in 1914 while they were back in MO. They also moved to the Independence area shortly after.
My grandmother and her siblings were all born and raised in Independence and my great-aunt still lives there. I lived there for several years in high school and college.
My grandmother was born in 1920, her brother and sister about 5 years before and after.
