    Surnames BROWN
    I am looking for information on a James and Fannie Craft Brown of Lilborn, MO. According to her widows pension papers, he died 4-6-1888. She was born in Greenup Co., KY died 9-26-1927 in Lilbourn and is buried at Mound cemetery. They had several children that I know of Basil, William, James, Frederick, and Lilly Bell, and probably more older children. Does anyone have a listing for this cemetery to check to see if they are there?
