I am looking for info on my great grandfather, Thomas Jefferson Brown. He married Cora Kate Newberry of Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma, but I not sure where they met or what his dob is. They settled in TN and I know when the Newberrys left Oklahoma, they did go through Kentucky, but I am not sure if they settled there for a short time before coming to TN. They had 14 children, and my grandmother Betty Clara Brown (Francis Hibdon) was #14. She was born in Sept 1914 I believe. I do not know many of her siblings names except Louis, Rose, and Birdie Mae. Id greatly any info anyone can give me. Thanks!
