William Thomas Browning - Need Help
Posted by: Mark Browning (ID *****5106) Date: August 18, 2011 at 15:06:53
  of 1706

I am hoping that someone can help me find the parents of my great great grandfather. Here is the information that I have for him:

William Thomas Browning

Born: 22 Nov 1856 (according to a photograph I have of him)
Virginia, USA

Died: 14 Feb 1916 (according to the photo & his death cert)
Yokum Station, Lee, Virginia, USA

The earliest record that I have for him is just across the state line in Hawkins County, Tennessee. He married my great great grandmother Hannah Elizabeth Looney on 18 Nov 1877 in Hawkins County, Tennessee.

In all of the census records, he indicates that he was born in Virginia. This could also have been what is now West Virginia (since it did not become an independent state until 1863). There is a large population of Brownings in Russell County, Virginia and Logan County, West Virginia. However, since Russell County is much closer I strongly believe this is where is family is from.

Can someone please help me find his parents?

Thank you,

Mark Browning
