Thetis Coppage Kincaid McClosky Brown was my mother's uncle. His father was Archibald Horatious Foratios Marcus de Lafayette Brown, known as "Lafe" Brown, or A.L. Brown. His mother was Ellen Coppage Brown. Family records show his birth as Sept. 18, 1881. He moved from Marion county, Kentucky, between 1910 and 1914. My mother, Rhoda Marple Wooley, told me years ago that this uncle and his first wife had two young children at the time my mother was about four years old. (My mother was born in 1909.) Mother never knew exactly what happened to him or the children. His second wife was Lillie Ellen Merrit. In my research I find that he and Merrit had two children, Ellen and James Thetis.
