Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Books I have authored:
The Descendants of John Muss & Elizabeth Ceise

I am very happy to transfer memorials to family except in situations where the memorial created is a member of my family.

Carby transfer
Mark, I am new to this. Thanks for transferring my mother to me. Like you, she was born here in Kentucky. I live in Louisville where she was born and grew up. She married my father young but they divorced and she then married William Carby and as you know is buried with him in Rosencrans. I enjoyed reading your descent bio. Thanks again!

William Delk
Hi I'm not sure what the relationship would be between you and my husband (guessing distant cousins of some sort) but your gr gr uncle William Delk is my husband's gr gr gr grandfather. If you could I would love to get whatever information you have on the Delk's. Perticulary Gilbert Delk's parents as I can't seem to locate any sources to find out who they were. From him down I seem to have quite a bit. Just can't seem to go any further. If you are able to help it would be appreciated! Thanks!

Hi Mark - I'm also researching the Delk family. Gabriel Delk is my third great grandfather. Melvina (his daughter) my great grandmother, and Emma (her daughter) is my grandmother. Any information beyond that would be awesome. Thank you.

MarK, I'm researching a Family Tree for someone, and I just want to commend you, for your thoughtful critique on Gabriel. I always enjoy reading this type of bio., that doesn't take anything for granted, and goes by the facts. Thanks!!
