Selected Families and Individuals


Homer Rice Brown

Informant: Nelson Nuttall sent the following to T.Mason on 1 Oct 2016, "Homer is a bit harder to trace, but by 1930 he was in the International Order of Railroad Conductors Retirement Home on Oatland Island in Chatham Co., GA. His death record in the IL Death and Still Birth Index lists his birth place as Mitchell, IN, with the same birth date found for him in the family records, and his occupation as conductor."

"I don’t know if there were other children, besides the two daughters, who died young, but I do know that Homer and Anne made at least one trip back to Indiana, to visit Homer’s family. I have a photo taken about 1896 showing Homer’s mother Emily; sister Mary Mazeppa (Brown) Crawford and niece Virginia Crawford, (b.1891), and his wife Anne with his infant daughter Jeannette in her arms. Since Virginia’s sister Mary was born Jul.15,1896 the picture must have been taken before that date. The old album containing this picture was originally given by Rice M. Brown to his wife Emily in 1866. It was given to me by Homer Rice Brown’s niece Mary Mazeppa Crawford, (1896-1892), who was a professor of economics at Indiana University, here in Bloomington, and both a relative and friend of my mother."
