John was the son of Francis John and Sarah Veazey Browning and married three times over his lifetime. On July 26, 1866, he married Sarah Elizabeth Beare-Harris in Clark County Arkansas. They had two children, Eunice Elizabeth and Jesse Oliver. Sarah died in 1871 and in the same year he married Martha Bunn. They had four children, Lucy Louisa (my grandmother), Sarah Frances, Permelia Charity, and Scott Browning. Martha died in 1905.

John joined the Confederate Army on September 1, 1861, five months after Confederate troops fired on Fort Sumter. He served in Company C, 4th Arkansas Battalion, later known as Rose's Battalion. His first action was in Kentucky where 24 of his comrades died, 22 from measles. They saw action in Memphis, Tennessee; Corinth, Mississippi; Richmond, Kentucky; Murfreesboro, Tennessee; and Farmington Arkansas. On Decamber 31, 1962, he was wounded in the side at the Stones River Battlefiels, Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He remained with Company C through October 31, 1863.

In 1906, John moved to Texas and married Ella Vance in 1909. The couple came back to Arkansas around 1922 and lived in the Sweet Home Confederate home in Pulaski County.

He is my greatgrandfather.
