Union County Cenus - Epps R. Brown Family
Union County AR Census Chart - Epps R. Brown Family


We know from the above Death Certificate that one of the 5 unmarried daughters above married Al Glass. There is no Edmonia Lynn Brown listed in the Census so the question is—Which of the above daughters is Edmonia Lynn; Is it Mollie b. about 1857 because the census says that Mollie was born then or it it one of the other daughters.

Compounding this is the fact that I have not been able to determine which of there two girls died young?

If we believe this data, Nannie BROWN married Al GLASS.
175.Nannie; b.__________;d.__________; m. Al Glass of Kasse, Texas. Nannie has been a Widow for many years. She is now living (1926) with her only child - Brown Glass, b.____, Kasse, Texas.

My question is how do I determine which of these girls married Al Glass and Jim Buckner; when the names used in the census does not match names found on death certificates and other documents. 

Your comments and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
