Hello, my name is Mark Douglas Browning and I live in Tucson, Arizona.
I was born in Kentucky, and have lived in many other states across the U.S. including: New York, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Missouri, Texas, and Arizona.
My ancestors migrated to America from Germany, East Prussia, South Wales, England, Isle of Man, and Ireland. Some of these ancestors married Native Americans (Chickasaw and Cherokee). My paternal great grandfather was a Shupe/Shoop from Southwestern Virginia.
I descend from the Gross, Cooper, Brock, Simpson, Saylor and Salyer families of Harlan County, Kentucky as well as the Griffith family of Whitley and Bell County, Kentucky on my maternal grandmother's side. My Cooper and Evans families were originally from Campbell and Union County, Tennessee before moving to Harlan County, Kentucky.
I descend from the Carby and Hunt families of Grayson, Hardin, and Hart Counties in Kentucky as well as the Muss, Hopewell, and Foster families of Bullitt County, Kentucky on my maternal grandfather's side.
I descend from the Craig and Delk families of Whitley County, Kentucky and Campbell County, Tennessee; the Craig and Williams families of Union County, Tennessee; the Fox family of Campbell County, Tennessee and Whitley County, Kentucky; and the Lawson family of Whitley County, Kentucky on my paternal grandmother's side.
I descend from the Shupe/Shoop family of Wythe County, Grayson County, Scott County and Wise County, Virginia; The Browning family of Russell County, Virginia, then Lee County, Virginia, then Hawkins County, Tennessee and later Scott County and Wise County, Virginia and even later Harlan County, Kentucky; and the Looney family of Hawkins County, Tennessee on my paternal grandfather's side.
Civil War soldiers Thank you for the photos you have posted on Find A Grave of cemeteries in Union Co. Tn. We are UCCA and are a very small non-profit dedicated to preserving Union Co. cemeteries and the history contained there. The Union County Cemetery Association is trying to post photos of graves of our Civil war veterans on our website and include them on our Facebook page. We would like permission to use your photos in these two sites. They would not be otherwise published. The soldiers we are most interested in are both Bridges. We hope you will consider this request.
Mary M Knox Unless she had two middle names her name is Mary Lena LeMasters Knox. She was the daughter of Frank LeMaster(William and Mary Pyles) and Lydia Ann Pullins/Posey/Sybriss/LeMasters/Kelley,daughter of Harrison Pullins and Julia Ann Patterson.
RE: Cooper Cemeteries Thank Mark. I think someone is working on getting the two merged. Hopefully Find A Grave will keep all of your information. I've worked hard to link relatives and want to get it right. Thank you for all your help.
Cooper Cemeteries Mark....Is the Cooper Cemetery and the Eli Cooper Cemetery the same??? Do you know if there are a lot of Coopers buried in the Cooper Cemetery at Bledsoe?? Another graver and I think the Eli Cooper Cemetery should be listed at Bledsoe instead of Coldiron. Thanks
