Ertie Browning was my grandfather, too. My father, Sidney Ray (who went by just Ray) never told me too much about him.

My Father (b. October 28th, 1936) served in the Air Force Reserves during the Korean Conflict, then settled in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, working briefly at odd jobs before committing himself as a carpenter. He was married twice and had four sons (Robert, Peter & Gabe from his first marriage to a woman named Loretta, and then myself from his later marriage to Dianne Jeanette Searing).

He passed away on Sunday, May 28th, 2000, of a heart attack.

I know you were looking for information on Ertie, not his son, but I hope this all interested you regardless.

I can remember a plane trip to Kentucky when I was very young to see my grandmother, Nancy, who was in a wheelchair when I met her. I remember also flying (driving?) down for her funeral. That was back in the 80's or early 90's and I'm only 25 today, so those memories get real mixed up. I did do some research though, and learned that Nancy's father was a Dolphus W. Musick, which is one of the coolest names I've ever heard.

Regards,
James Harrison Browning

PS: Just remembered a couple things. I met Jackie at my Father's funeral. She bears a pretty strong resemblance to my father (her brother Sidney). It was nice meeting her. She's lived in various parts of the South, Mississippi being one place that I recall her mentioning. Texie I do believe I met, as well. She was living with her husband and their three children pretty much in the woods, in a trailer. (This is going back at least 15 years, though.) Texie was considerably younger than my dad, who was only her half-brother.
