Does anyone know of this Brown family of Georgia or Alabama?

Beatrice Brown  [Brown-11426]
May 29, 1890 Atalla, Etowah County, Alabama
October 1, 1911 Etowah County, Alabama
Married Charles Pinkney Beard
August 22, 1907
Her fathers name, according to her marriage record is R. F. Brown [Brown-13944].  My Uncle remembered her father or brother was named Robert.  I am thinking the R. is Robert.  I believe the family came from St. Clair County, Alabama or perhaps earlier, Georgia.  They moved out of Etowah County, Alabama after Beatrice died.  I have not been able to find Beatrice Beard listed in any Alabama death index online.  I would like to get a death cert for her, but am afraid that it would be a waste of time and money to order it.  Alabama didn't issue death certs with any regularity until much later.
Does anyone know of this Brown family?  Any ideas on how to proceed would be appreciated.  I cannot find them in the census either.

Order a 67 marker Y-DNA test from  There are just too many Brown's to sort through and DNA testing has really helped my research after 15 years of traditional genealogy.
