Missouri Elvira Lyles Browning
Birth: Jul. 15, 1868
South Carolina, USA
Death: Jul. 18, 1938
Gwinnett County
Georgia, USA

She was the third wife of James Marion Browning. They married July 5, 1885 in Franklin Co, GA. According to family legend, Missouri was half Cherokee Indian. They lived on Smithtown Road in Suwanee when this photo was made. Notice the rocks at the front of the porch. Her grandson, Ralph Browning, remembers as a boy falling on those very rocks and breaking his nose.

She was the daughter of William A Lyles and Nancy M Stowe Lyles.

She was the mother of Charles Wesley, Lilly Pearl, James Ellis, Crowell Justin, and Jasper Marshall Browning.

Missouri remarried in 1912, to J. Sam Burel. Sam died died in 1930 and is buried at Hog Mountain Baptist Church Cemetery in Dacula (note name of church changed to Hamilton Mill Baptist Church in February 2007 after much controversy and opposition from historical groups).

Update, Hog Mountain Baptist Church has returned to its original name!
