Looking for Family of Louisa Brown
Louisa (or Lucinda) was born into slavery on the plantation of Ethedlred Edwards of Gerogia, probably around 1843. When Etheldred’s daughter, Mary Elizabeth, married John Franklin Brown, Louisa was given to the Brown’s. The Brown’s moved south to Harris Co., GA and took Louisa with them. When the war was over, Louisa stayed with the Brown’s as they moved to Newton Co., Miss. She shows up in the 1870 census as Louisa Brown, along with 5 yr. old son, Jerry. I am told that she stayed with the Brown’s until they died. She later shows up in a census living with the son of John Franklin and Mary. I have a picture of her holding one of the Brown babies and I would love to share this picture with her family.
