Alexander Means Browning

Birth: May 6, 1834
Newton County
Georgia, USA
Death: Feb. 6, 1917

Alexander's first wife was Sarah Conner (m. May 21st, or 26th, 1853 at Carroll Co., GA); and his second wife was Margaret (m. abt. 1879), whom he is buried beside.

He enlisted March 8, 1862 at Lake City, FL. He was taken prisoner at Spotsylvania Courthouse (Battle of the Wilderness)and held at Point Lookout, MD until later being sent to Elmira Prison Camp at Elmira, NY. He was released in a prisoner exchange, and honorably discharged at Savannah, December 15, 1864.

(His pension file gives a fascinating account of some of his experiences in the war.)


UPDATE - July 16, 2012
While I don't normally like to clutter memorials with genealogy, or speculation, I'm making an exception here.
I received an e-mail recently from "Hilary", wherein she advises she had learned Alexander's first wife, thinking he was dead, took her children to Rusk County, Texas and married a man named Parr. This would explain why I found no trace of Sarah & their children, after the 1860 census, in Columbia Co., FL. While no year was given, one could surmise Sarah did not know Alexander was a POW, and thought he had been killed in the war.
