Francis "Frank" D. Brown Family Group Sheet

Francis "Frank" D. Brown was b. 10 Feb. 1802, probably in Jefferson County, Georgia, son of Francis Brown and Mary ?. He died 25 April 1879 in Lincoln Co. MS, where he was living with his cousin. He married between 1820 and 1823 in Covington Co. MS (where records were destroyed) to Elizabeth Coulter.

This location is reserved for an image of Frank and Elizabeth Brown.

Elizabeth Coulter b.c. 1805 GA died 18 Feb. 1864 in St. Tammany Parish, LA. She was either the daughter of Peter Coulter or his brother, John M. Coulter. Because she stayed behind when John M. moved north and eventually to Arkansas, and because John M.'s daughter Elizabeth, about the same exact age, was believed to have died young, I am guessing she is Peter's daughter. But, there is no way to prove which is her father. I have proven that she could be either.
