John - I am fairly new at researching my family. That's how I got into Find A grave. Also later found in old letters that John brown's wife had died in a town called Shafter Lake which is now gone and is buried in the Shafter Lake Cemetery. The cemetery was vandalized and only a few graves are marked. I think that maybe he went to war and she never heard from him. She was living with some people named Dillard out close to Odessa. I sometimes look on GenForum and found someone else who said "Too Many Browns!" Good luck with your search. I'll watch for your Browns. I have had pretty good luck in finding family links on quite a few people.

John Brown, my great grandfather was living in Burkett with his sister-in-law and her daughter. The daughter's name is Mary Stanphill. I never knew my grandfather or great grandfather as they died before I was born. As I was going through some old letters, I found a letter from my Aunt to my grandfather that said she had met some of his kinfolk.(1920) She went on to say that John brown had died and was buried in Burkett Cemetery. She said he died on the same day as Mr. W.P. Stanphill, who he was living with on April 5, 1901. My sister looked up Burkett Cemetery and found them listed and that they died on the same day. This is the first that we knew anything about John Brown. We went to the cemetery and found the graves and took pictures. The only two children of his that I know of are my trandfather, William A. Brown and B.F. (Benjamin Franklin) Brown. Woul like to know more about your Browns.
