RE: Martha Brown Interesting. Thank you Cindy for this information. I have Martha as Martha S. Brown (no information as to what the S is for. born 1785 to Thomas Branch Brown and Mary Susan Pettus and died 11 June 1859. She married burgess bird lay in 1805. I will follow up on her children too. I have found discrepancies in other family trees but don't use those until I have documented and verified as much as possible. I have another source for my family as well. Martha S Brown is my 5th great grandmother. Now is this the same one? More research ahead. Thank you for your help.
Martha Brown Good morning Cindy, thank you for working on our family tree. I am a descendant of Thomas Brown through Martha Brown. I am confused and perhaps you have some additional information. Obviously there are a lot of names that are the same. Thomas had a daughter named Martha Elizabeth and one named Mary. I think my 4th grandmother was Martha, but I have seen her name as Martha E., Martha S and just Martha. I have found evidence of a Martha Swindle, Martha Lay (married to Bird Lay) and find-a-grave shows on Thomas' listing her name as Martha Brown Jackson. You can see why I might be confused. Any help you can give me on these names will help. Thank you,
Rev. Benjamin H. Bounds Reverend Benjamin H Bounds is my 2nd Great Grandfather. His wife Julia Annie Terry who died in child birth in 1865 is my 2nd great grandmother through their daughter Julia Annie Bounds. I am looking for a copy of Benjamin's autobiography. Does any one have any knowledge of where a copy might be obtained?
