BROWN, HENSLEY, PATTERSON - SEEKING EDMUND L./EDGAR L. AND TEANAR BROWN INFORMATION · EDMUND (EDGAR) L. BROWN (African-American), was living in Jefferson County, Arkansas September 17, 1869 (verified by birth of the twins, William and Frank. The birth date appears on the marriage license of William Henry Brown in 1901.  · Family said Ed Brown was originally from Galveston, Texas.  · 1890 he reportedly pastored St. Paul AME Church in Morrilton in 1890 (in St. Paul Church History Book) Between 1890-1906 was a presiding Elder of the Ft. Smith District of the A.M.E. Church, lived in Sebastian County · December 7, 1907 died in Arkadelphia, AR. (Death date appears in my grandmother's journal).  Can find no information in Sebastian County, Conway County (except the Church), or Arkadelphia.  Their children were:  WILLIAM HENRY BROWN (my grandfather) · Born September 17, 1869, Pine Bluff, AR ; d. May 21, 1936, Morrilton, AR., My grandfather.  · In 1896, lived in Perryville, Perry County, AR. and was 21 year old (as verified by his signature on a Pension affidavit for my great-grandmother, Martha Ann Perry.  (General Affidavit, State of Arkansas, County of Perry, in the matter of claim for Martha A. Perry, widow of George W. Perry, Co. E, 2nd USCLA dated January 23, 1896. Affidavit notarized by James Vance shows William Henry's residence and age.) · September 1901, William Henry was married to Mattie Perry Syrus in Menifee, Conway County, AR. (From Marriage License · September 1904, William Henry was baptized at St. Matthew #3 Baptist Church in Blackwell, Arkansas by Pastor W.M.

She also said that William Henry and Frank lived in Lewisburg with the Ward family until they moved to Fort Smith.  My grandmother also said they lived in Lewisburg and then Fort Smith. The family thought that he may have been a teacher of some kind because he brought luggage with him that contained books and he was quite literate.

REED - My great grandfather, William Jefferson Reed, aka Jeff Reed or J. W. died between 1894 and 1900 at Tucker's Sawmill that once existed in Jefferson County. My Grandmother Nancy Reed died in Gumwoods Township near there on July 1, 1925.  I am hoping that they are buried side by side.  The Wilson funeral home had a fire in 1950.
