K. Jeanneret WED JUNE 25 1997
Searching for Martha A. HOPKINS BROWN, who was living with her son Samuel H. Brown
in 1920, at age 86. Samuel and his wife Minnie both died in De Ridder, but I can't
seem to find out what happened to his mother Martha BROWN??? She must have died between
1921 and 1935. That would have made her around 100 yrs old. Other family members had been
affiliated with the First Christian Church, so I assume she may have been also???
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
