Surnames: Browning
I have traced my family ancestry back to a Capt. John Browning who came to America in 1622 aboard the ship "Abigail". I have recently been advised that the famous gunmaker Jonathan M. Browning was also a decendent of this Capt. Browning but have not been able to find the connection. I believe the connection might be with an Orville Browning, (son of Charles Preston Browning b. 07/17/1831), as a cousin. If anyone has any information regarding anyone in this "line", please contact me via tonyabrowning@yahoo.com Will share any info. I have. Thanks

Other Names in this line:
Joshua Browning b. 03/23/1805 d. 12/14/1851 born in KY Lived and died in IL
Rachel Browning b. 1826 d. 1849 m. ? Britton
