My ggrandpa's death certificate states that Henry Sherman BROWN  was born May 26, 1862 in Gilmer County, GA. Gilmer County was formed December 3, 1832 from part of Cherokee County. I am trying to find his hometown, resp. the state he came from, possibly North Carolina.  He married Mary Ann JONES. She was born Dec 1865 KY and died 26 Nov 1945 KY. Henry Sherman Brown died Nov 26, 1945 in Graves County, KY.

Previous information that I had: The 1900 Graves County, KY Census states that he was born May 1867 but, my aunt (his granddaughter) thinks that he was born 1866. On some census records it states that he was born in GA, on others NC. It may have been that Henry Sherman Brown's parents were born in NC.

I don't know if the parents of Henry Sherman and Cornelius also moved to KY or if only Henry Sherman and Cornelius moved away from GA.

All of Henry Sherman Brown and Mary Ann's children were born in KY and lived in Union County and later in Graves County. According to various census records Henry Sherman Brown and Mary Ann had ten children: 

1) Rhoda
2) Addie May
3) Arch Leonard (my grandpa)
4) Thomas Edward
5) Olivia
6) Mary Joan
7) Charles Cornelious
8) Leo
9) Viola
10) William Sherman (on some Census records he is called Willie, on the 1920 Federal Census Graves County, KY, District 7, Folsomdale he is called James W Brown).
Details below.

Henry Sherman Brown had a brother named Cornelius who was born in GA abt. 1868. Cornelius was married to Mary, surname unknown, from Tennessee. They had three children that I know of, details below.
