Mournin Brown was my 4th great grandmother. She was born 1810 in North Carolina. She died 1876 in Gilmer,Georgia. She married Jesse William Burrell. He was born 1805 in South Carolina. He died 1868 in Gilmer,Georgia. They had 9 children: Kimbrelin(1825-1898 my 3rd great grandfather) Timothy Titus(1827-1860/1870) Nancy(1828-?) Simpson Mix(1832-1904) Spencer A(1835-1893) Mary Ann(1837-1864) Sarah A(1840-1908) Julia Ann(1843-1875) Jesse William Jr(1844-1920) According to the Pickens County Georgia Heritage Book Mournin's parents are Andrew Brown and Sarah Reed. Sarah Reed is repoerted to be full blooded Cherokee Indian. I don't have any information on Andrew Brown or Sarah Reed. Does anyone know who Sarah Reed is and have any information? Jesse William Burrell Jr applied for Cherokee Citizenship but was rejected. He cited Mournin as his Cherokee heritage. Can anyone please help me? Thank you.
