John Veazey BROWNING (VETERAN CSA)

Little Rock National Cemetery
Pulaski County,
Arkansas

John was the son of Francis John and Sarah Veazey Browning and married three times over his lifetime. On July 26, 1866, he married Sarah Elizabeth Beare-Harris in Clark County Arkansas. They had two children, Eunice Elizabeth and Jesse Oliver. Sarah died in 1871 and in the same year he married Martha Bunn. They had four children, Lucy Louisa (my grandmother), Sarah Frances, Permelia Charity, and Scott Browning. Martha died in 1905.

John joined the Confederate Army on September 1, 1861, five months after Confederate troops fired on Fort Sumter. He served in the 4th Arkansas Battalion, later known as Rose's Battalion. His first action was in Kentucky where 24 of his comrades died, 22 fro measles. They saw action in Memphis, Tennessee; Corinth, Mississippi; Richmond, Richmond, Kentucky; Murfreesboro, Tennessee; and Farmington Arkansas.

In 1906, John moved to Texas and married Ella Vance in 1909. The couple came back to Arkansas around 1922 and lived in the Sweet Home Confederate home in Pulaski County.

He is my greatgrandfather.
