Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 15, 1770, USA
Death: Jan. 25, 1832
Lowndes County
Alabama, USA

Son of John Browning who died in Greene County, Georgia in 1803, leaving a will. William was a co-executor of the will along with his brother, John.

William began purchasing land in Alabama in 1817:
Chapter One, Receivers Office in Milledgeville, GA, August 1817-November 1818, Book 300
Page 2: on Aug. 11, 1817, William Browning of Greene Co., GA purchased land in Township 16, Range 19, Section 26 (this is probably in what is now Montgomery County, AL)

He bought more land after he arrived in Alabama:
Chapter Two, Receivers Office at Cahaba, January 1819-March 1819, Ledger 302
Page 7: January 1819, William Browning, of Green Co., GA, and William Moon purchased land at Township 16, Range 13, Section 36 (near White Hall, Lowndes County, AL)

Chapter Four, Receivers Ledger at Cahaba Land Office, March 1819 to Sept. 1819, Book 301
Page 74: on May 6, 1831, William Browning of Lowndes Co. purchased land in Township 15, Range 13, Section 10 (a bit south and west of the property purchased near White Hall, Lowndes County, AL)

From this we know that William was an early pioneer in the state.

William and his wife, Elizabeth Atkinson, had at least nine children: Pamelia Browning; Albert Gallatin Browning; Eliza Browning; Julia Ann Browning; John F. Browning; James Monroe Browning; Egbert Brownina; Henrietta E. Browning; and Emily Browning.
