Ethridge Brown b May 1859 - 1862 in Tenn ( from 1900 Census
Gordo, Pickens Co, Ala) d July 22, 1919 in Houston, Harris
County, Tx. William's parents were born in North Carolina
according to the 1900 & 1910 census.
Ethridge Brown married Zelpha Lowe January 3, 1901 in Gordo,
had the following children: Henry Brown born 1901/1903
H. Brown b August 15, 1905 m Marie Louise Pazi
Belle Brown born about 1908

Ethridge Brown b 1913
Charlie Brown born after 1913.
the kids were born in Gordo, Pickens Co, Ala. and all came to
Texas about 1916/1918.
Because William Ethridge Brown was about 40 when he married
Zelpha we believe he may have been married before elsewhere
and because he refused to talk about his life before he
married Zelpha some think he may have changed his name.
