Help with Glass- Brown Family
Posted by: Charles Purvis (ID *****7168) Date: April 01, 2012 at 19:06:15
  of 861

Epps Rivers Brown and Dorinda Adair had the following children:
Sarah O. BROWN (b. 14 Feb 1845) married William D. Ward
1. Napoleon Bonaparte “Nap” BROWN (b. 19 Apr 1843) married Martha Ann “Missie” Moody
2. Lafayette BROWN (b. Apr 1847) married Mary Elizabeth Warren
3. Martha J. BROWN (b. 1849) married
4. Nancy Ann BROWN (b. 1852) married
5. Lucy M. BROWN (b. 1854) married
6. Mollie BROWN (b. 1857) married
7. Lizzie BROWN (b. 1859)
8. Weymon Epps BROWN (b .1 Jan 1863) married Iva Lou Hall, relocated to Potter Co., TX

I don’t have spouses for 5 of the daughters in this family.
Between 1870 and 1880 Martha J. BROWN has left the household most likely marrying.

In the household of Epps R. & Dorinda in 1880 are daughters
Ann [Nancy Ann]
Lu [Lucy]

Based on DEATH CERTIFICATE that I found in Texas, 2 of the above 5 daughter and Weymon Epps migrated to Texas.

The Problem that I am having is that the names on the Death Certificates DO NOT MATCH names recorded in the Censuses.
Weyman Epps Brown death certificate does match.

The two daughter death certificates are for:

Edmonia Lynn GLASS, b. 12 Dec 1857, now this match the birth year for MOLLIE married Absolom Pratt GLASS

Then there is

Donnie BUCKNER, b. 10 Sep 1853 married Joel H. Goodwin and then James M. “Jim” BUCKNER

This is close to Lucy M. Brown birth year.
