 THE BROWNING FAMILY

This site has been developed with great thanks to Patti Strickler of Richardson, TX. strickp@juno.com The only thing I knew about my Brownings was that my 2nd great-grandfather was John Wesley Browning, his wife a "German girl named Matilda",  and his daughter, Viola (Kate) was my great-grandmother.  I had his picture, his patent papers and the 1850 Coles Co., IL census showing them with a four year old named Alice. Then Patti answered a query of mine and everything fell into place.  Thank you, Patti!

 Descendants of John Browning

 

Generation No. 1

1. JOHN 1 BROWNING was born Bef. 1775, and died in Ohio.

 Notes for JOHN BROWNING:

The Brownings are first found on the 1820 Harrison Co., Ohio census in Cadiz Twp. Samuel, William and John are all on same page of 1820 census, only 1 family living in between each of them. John is aged over 45 years, Samuel is 26-45 and in William's household are two males aged 16-25.

By 1830, they have moved further apart. William is in Tuscarawas Co., aged 20-30; John is in Harrison Co., Freeport Twp, aged 50-60 and Samuel is in Harrison Co., Moorefield Twp, aged 30-40. John disappears after that, but on the 1850 census, Samuel and William both say they were born in Maryland.

Descendancy is not proven, but from the preponderance of evidence, it is highly probable that he is the father of our Samuel.

Presumed children of JOHN BROWNING are:

          2. i. SAMUEL M.2  BROWNING, b. September 1796, Maryland; d. between 1868 and 1869 in Windsor Twp., Shelby Co., IL.
