Johannes Braun
Birth: Jan. 21, 1810
Bavaria (Bayern), Germany
Death: Jul. 27, 1868
Spencer County
Indiana, USA

Born in Langenreuth, Bavaria. Immigrated to U.S. in 1841, by report of daughter Elizabeth on 1900 U.S. Federal Census. St. John Lutheran Church of Evanston, IN, has record of marriage 5 May 1842, Spencer County, IN. On U.S. Federal Censuses 1850 & 1860, name is anglicized to John Brown. The Braun (Brown) children included on the censuses: Michael, Elizabeth, Johannes W., Christine, Johann A., Peter, Friedrich, Johann Georg, Christoph, Margaretha, Johann Heinrich, and Katherine (Wilhelm is omitted). The church record may have been constructed long after the children were born, as it states that Katharina is a widow to Johannes; and, it lists son Wilhelm, but omits Johann A. The mother's obituary says three children preceded her in death. Death records have not yet been found for Christine (born 3 Feb 1845), Johann A., or Peter - but records exist for the ten children known to survive at the time of their mother's death. Christine and Peter lived at least to early adulthood: Christine married Friedrich Traut (church record/no date available), and Peter married Mary Bangert in 1871 (Spencer Co. public record). Johann A. is age 15 on the 1860 census where he is last found listed with his birth family. Some of the names have been anglicized.
