Below is a portion of the letter I sent to Kathyn Roberts about the grave of "Mrs. Brown" who is buried in Pie Town. My husband met Johnny when he was staying with his daughter, Annie Traynor, in Clifton, Arizona. My husband took his father, Charles Francis Brown, to see Johnny at the Traynor's place in Clifton. How glad they were to see each other. Tommy Traynor worked for us on our farm one year.

We would love to hear from you if you'd care to write.

Nancy E. Brown

{I noticed that you said you didn’t know anything about the grave of “Mrs. Brown” in the Pie Town Cemetery. Mrs. Brown was the wife of James A, Brown. Mrs. Brown’s name was Martha P. Fancher, born 17 Feb 1857 in Henderson Co. Texas. James was born 29 Aug 1848 in Ms.

The James A. Brown family moved to New Mexico sometime before 1890, as they had a girl born in Magdalena in 1890 and another born in 1894. Altogether they had 6 children. Their first son was John Odis Brown, born in Texas. It was this Brown family that my father in law, Charles Francis Brown of Missouri, took up with when he ran away from home at age 8 years. He lived with them in Palo Pinto County, Texas and came to New Mexico when they moved. The James Brown family was not related to our Brown family, but no one knew but what Charles was their son. Charles and Johnny stayed friends until they died.

John A Brown died 17 Dec 1925 in Tahoka, Texas and Martha P Brown died 23 Jan 1941 in Pie Town, New Mexico}.
