Effie Mae Taylor was the daughter of Leonard Taylor (1856 MO 1892 MN) & Edith Rice (1858 WI 1925 ND)

Effie married Charles Elmer Brown of Ohio when she was 18 years old. They became the parents of 5 known children:

1) Verna Ann Brown (18971968), w/o Edward Martin Beck
2) Zelma Catherine Brown (18991999), w/o Cecil Edward Veno
3) Myrtle Mary Brown (1901), she either died in 1919 or married Willard Robert Forest and lived in ND.
4) William AMOS Brown 1903 died before 1909
5) Theodore Asa "Ted" Brown (19041978), h/o Caroline Elvina Armstrong

Family lore: "Charles left Effie very ill in the dead of winter with a baby, Ted was 6 months, and went South to work on the railroad. Effie nearly died before Harry Bronston happened by and brought her wood, food, and a doctor. He stayed there, milked the cow, fed the kids, packed wood & water to the house, until she was able to care for it all again.

Suddenly, Charles' sister came from Canada and was going to "take" the poor neglected children because there was a "man" in the house unchaperoned. It even ended up in court, but when the judge said, "NO, they were the ones neglected", it ended with Verna & Zelma going North. Mary & Ted stayed at home. Amos had died earlier with appendicitis. The next spring, they all came back and lived there until, after 6 months of courting, Effie & Harry were married."

Mrs Effie Mae Taylor Brown married William Harry Bronston (18771943) in 1909. They became the parents of 4 known children:

6) Patrick Harry "Pat" Bronston (19101992), h/o Sarah L Prevette and Louise Frances Mariman
7) Effie Mae Bronston (19121969), w/o Charles Albert "Ab" Mitchell
8) Thomas Otto "Tom" Bronston (19151997), h/o Jessie Mayo Whitworth
9) Ella Elizabeth Bronston (19211950), w/o Mr Kilgore, Mr Cook, Claude Lou House and an Italian

Mrs Effie Mae Taylor Brown Bronston married William Alonzo Swenson (18811966) on 3 Nov 1954 in Howell Co, MO
