James living with Mary his second wife and their children and John Beasley which was Mary's son from another marriage. James occupation is a farmer.

I would like to find out who James Wesley Brown's parents were, their names, place of birth and if they had any more children besides James. Also I'd like to know what happened to some of his children, if they married, died in war or were never married at all.  The two photos of Martha and Mary Susan I know what happened to them and who they both married.  Lucinda Carolina married Joseph G. Green in 1883 and had 9 children, she's buried in Bethel Cemetery in Alabama.  I'll update as I find out any new information.
