If they do not fit into my Brown family, I may find them in my Smith's.

: Hi Ellen:
: This would appear to be the family of William Henry BROWN & Tryphenia Amelia
: SMITH. Their children are: Levi William, Victor Edwin, Laura Elizabeth,
: Cyrus James, Guilford Benjamin, Lucy & Christopher B BROWN.
: However, Greg Brown says below that GB Brown was 72 in 1956. Guilford
: Benjamin Brown was born in February 1869. However, the father's name fits
: as do the names of Laura, Levi, Cyrus & Lucy. Possibly "Kit " is just a
: nickname for Christopher?
: Greg: Could it be that the letters, published in 1956, were actually
: reprints of earlier letters by Guilford B BROWN? If not, it would appear
: that G B BROWN (the author) would be a grandson, rather than son, of William
: Henry BROWN.
: The children were all born around Mapleton/Maccan Mountain.
: That's my 2 cents...
