Hi Anita Again,
I almost forgot one of my favorite web sites which is FamilySearch, . I entered Martin Francis Brown with his death date and place and was able to find the following about him.

Martin Francis Brown, b. 21 Oct 1847, AR; married but no spouse shown, Parents=William Brown, b. TN and Elizabeth Brown, b. TN; Martin was a retired farmer. Their death and burial info was the same as yours. You can print an index of his death cert.

From that info I started searching. In 1850 Martin, his parents and siblings were living in Marrs Hill, Washington Co., AR.
Wm M., head, b. tenn? [hard to read], 28 yrs old, farmer.
Elizabeth, wife, b. Tenn?, 26.
James Brown, b. AR, 6.
Martin, b. AR, 3.
Richard, b. AR, 6/12ths.
Francis M. Watson, boarder.

In 1860 Martin's family was living in Elm Springs, Washington Co., AR.
William, b. TN, 38, farmer.
Ann, wife, b. TN, 32.
James, b. AR, 16.
Martin, b. AR, 12.
Leander, son, b. AR, 10.
Jessa, son, b. AR, 8.

A Robert Brown and family were on the same Census page as Martin.

Willis L. Kilgore, head household, b. TX, 42.

Martin had a son Charles and I found him in 1920 in Berclair, Goliad Co., TX.

Mae Brown, wife, b. TX, 38.

Be sure to check this against Martin's obituary. Also be sure to order birth, marriage and death certs to ensure my work is correct. Successful Searching!
