RE: Alan Wellborn
Hi , I'm not seeing anything that will allow me to send you his picture . Send me an email or I can post it on his wall and can delete it if it's not him. I love to look and collect old photos with first & last names on them and search for family members online ( ancestry) and return them to rightful family . Dee

RE: James Lazerus Brown & Louisa Catherine Rush Brown
Hello Billy, to be honest, I'm not quite sure that we have the same people. Of course I know of James L. Brown, as he's my 3rd great grandfather, but census records all indicate that he was born on March 21st of 1823, rather than an estimated date of 1835. Also, contrary to the death date listed on the tomb stone, he supposedly died on February 21st, 1878. However, it cannot be proven, and is likely false due to a picture that I found of a grown up Emanuel Brown (born 1874) sitting with his father, James L. Brown. So it seems to be impossible that he died during that date. I've never heard of a Louisa Catherine Rush Brown, but could you send me documentation that supports that they married in 1888? I have James Brown being married to a woman named Lucy Hughes (1832-1877) apparently married on December 21st of 1853. (Though, there are no sources supporting that this is when the marriage was - yet - the death date, birth date, and marriage date would indeed make sense as there were no children after the late 1870s.
I don't know of a Cora Latta, but I'm sure that she's related somehow due to her last name and Emanuel marrying into the Latta family.

Posting the photos was my pleasure, and now it seems that there are more questions unanswered than answered! Sorry about that. :)

He was the son of William B Bradford (born 1779 NC and died 1863 in Van Buren County AR). Three of his brothers: James, Howard, and Zilman also died in the war effort.

RE: Lorenzo Dow Rush
BILLY,

IT WAS SO GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU. I AM SURE THAT WE ARE RELATED FROM COMMON ANCESTORS. TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION ON HOW I AM RELATED TO LORENZO DOW RUSH HERE GOES. I AM RELATED THRU THE DUNLAP LINE. MY GR GRANDMOTHER IS ADENER "DUNLAP" HOWARD FROM HARRISON, ARKANSAS. I WAS ABLE TO VISIT HER SHORTLY BEFORE HER PASSING WITH MY GRANDMOTHER / MAMIE HOWARD CRAWFORD AND MY MOTHER / SALLIE JO "CRAWFORD" ROUW. MY GRANDFATHER JAMES GRANT CRAWFORD IS BURIED IN HARRISON. I STILL HAVE RELATIVES LIVING IN THE AREA.

I HOPE THIS INFO IS HELPFUL WITH RESPECT TO YOU QUESTION. LET'S COMPARE NOTES AND HOPEFULLY ANSWER MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR COMMON FAMILY.

SINCERELY, MIKE
