Death: Sep. 2, 1997

Myra Peden was born 1903 in Parker County, Texas to Francis Marion Peden and Martha Caledonia Wimberly, known as Mattie. She was the youngest of eight children, all born between 1883 and 1903 in Reno, Parker County, Texas. Her older siblings were David Clarence, Bertie, Roy Francis, Cicero, Gaston, Pauline, and Leland John Peden. Around 1915 the Peden family moved to Price, Jefferson County, Oklahoma.

Myra married in 1923 in Baylor County, Texas to Ervin Elmer Brown, son of James Monroe Brown and Cloah Ellen Partlow. Between 1924 and 1945 Myra and Ervin had nine children -- Rose Mary, Rosa Lee, James Marion, Harold Ray, Gaylyn Porter, Carma Leta, Rebekah Ann, Richard Dee Brown, and Elizabeth Jane Brown. The family lived in the Sweetwater, Texas area but eventually moved to Johnson County, Texas where Myra wished her children to attend college at the Seventh Day Adventist school there. She remained in that vicinity the rest of her life except for a few years before her husband's death when she moved the children to San Antonio.
