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 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
Harriet Browning b. 1829 m. ? Foster

Also looking for children and wives of Charles Preston Browning b. 7/17/1831 d. 10/30/1868 and More Importantly
Isaac C. Browning b. 1807/1809 in KY.
married Elizabeth Sampson b. 1800/1810
2nd married Elizabeth Baxter b. 1816 3rd married Martha (Patsy) Robison b. 1818 4th married Delela Farling Lived and married all in IL - several children.
