Additional comments.
1. My great grandfather was Rev. J. M Brown
He was Rev. J.M. Brown, husband of M.E. Brown (Green). I have family records that he was preacher of Pinelog methodist church. He was born March 25th, 1862, passed away June 29th, 1918. If anyone has any information of this, I would appreciate it. Thank you very much. Joan Ivers.
