In the 1880 census, Clay Co. ALA, James M Browning shows up born 1807 in SC with a father born unknown, and a mother born in VA, his wife's name is Annie S. born 1826 GA (I suspect that she's a second wife) due to the fact that another James M. Browning is just beneath him ( door) with his own family and is listed as being born in 1848 and his mother as being born in SC, in looking at the 1870 James M. #1 is married to an 'N.C.' born in 1826 in SC.

Following me? then the 1880 census lists James M. Browning #1 with the wife Annie, 1826 GA, children Sidney L.b. Oct 1871, Clay Co. Ala, Henry M. b 1873 Ala, William J, b. 1864, Ala, Merit L.(i think, it was hard to read) b. 1868, Sarah, 1866, Susan b. 1847.
THEN found Sidney L. Browning and a Lela Smith (dau of SM Smith) married Dec 18 1890 in Clay Co. Alabama.
Now on the Clay Co. TX census of 1900, then on the Garza Co. TX census of 1910 we again find these folks:

To make a long story short, SIDNEY L. BROWNING, WIFE LELA SMITH BROWNING, children Annie Mae, 1902, ala, Ester Pernel b. 1906, TX, Len Madison b. 1912, Clay Co. TX, Howard Myrl b. 1912, Mame b. Oct 1892, Susie B, b 1894, Nora 1898, Carrie P b. 1905 and Cleon b. 1910. These have all been verified via census records. I knew Annie (m. Otis Shepherd) Ester (m Clarence Carpenter) Nora (m #2 Peter Gerner) and Len (m. Clareta Harter and lived in Garza Co. and Brownfield)all these lived in Garza & Lynn Co. Tx. The rest I don't know what happened to them. AGAIN THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP, RTPARKS
