Since you know where Joseph was buried you probably know year of birth and death. With name as common as Brown dates are always good to include in your query. But, you did include his wife's less common maiden name, so I went looking.

TX Dth Idx 1890-1976 -- http://search.labs.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html?..#w=;p=2;c=1320964;t=searchable -- You can view digitized copy of original death record, see more details, make copies and look for others, too.

With Flint being born before 1880 census I went looking and found the family in Johnson Co, TX and that gave me ages for Joseph and Julia.

Unfortunately Joseph's DC doesn't give the names of his parents, but if the informant was correct, it does give county in TN for his birth. Were your Browns from there? Maybe you can track down family members of the above children of Joseph????

Happy Hunting (^_^)
