On Aug 4, 1873, Mary Feuerborn lost twin boys at birth. Their neighbor, Mr. John Brown, had died two weeks before, and Mrs. Brown was having a very hard time, because she was pregnant. The baby was born Aug. 10, Mrs. Brown had a nervous break down and could not care for the baby. Mary helped to care for the baby and they named him John after his father. Mrs. Brown never recovered so Mary and John Henry raised John Brown as their own. He moved with the family in 1892 to Lexington Oklahoma. About 1918 he married Louise Ille, they had a farm with a large pecan grove and in the fall the Feuerborn family would go out on Sunday afternoon to pick pecans. John also worked at the bank in Lexington. John and Louise had one son John Brown Jr. as well as her children from a previous marriage.
