^ GENEALOGY OF 

^ DAVID BROWDER, OF VlicGINIA 

AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 

$.s far back as the line of descent recorded below can be traced, 
Richard Browder and Henry Cousins stand as the joint heads and remote 
ancestors. 

As no records are available as to the date of birth, marriage 
and death of either, nothing is certainly known in either of these 
lines of facts in the history of the two families. Both lived and 
died in Virginia, but the nativity of Richard Browder, while not 
certainly known, is supposed to have been Virginia, and Henry Cousins 
is said to have been a native of England. Richard Browder, according 
to traditional report, married a Miss Thompson, and as a result of 
this marriage, a relationship is said to exist between the descen- 
dants of Richard Browder and the Thompson family of central Kentucky, 

The issues of this marriage, so far as kno\^m, were David, 
Littleberry, William and Mary Browder. There may have been other 
children, but if so the fact is not known. 

Henry Cousins married a Miss Thompson also whose Christian name 
is not known. Eight children were the issues of this marriage, viz.: 
Mary, Rebecca, Eliza, Ann, Jane and Henry, and the names of two daughters 
are unknovm. Mary married David Browder and their descendants now 
reside in Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana, Missouri and Illinois. 

Rebecca married Judson Worsham and their descendants now reside 
chiefly in Virginia. 

Eliza married Thomas Chambers, and their descendants now reside 

chiefly in Alabama and Virginia, 

c

Ann married Richard Ferguson, and their descendants now reside 
chiefly in Virginia, 

Of the two daughters whose full names are not known, one married 
Hazlewood and the other married Pritchett — the descendants of the 
former now residing, so far as known, in Kentucky, and of the other 
in Kentucky, Tennessee and Missouri, Jane was never married. 

The descendants of Henry Cousins now residing chiefly in Virginia 
have the family names of Cousins, V/orsham, Robertson, Chambers, Fer- 
guson, Williamson and Pritchett, with other connections resulting 
from marriages into these families. 

It may be said that in both of these lines of descent strong and 
fixed traits of character have been conveyed from one generation to 
another. Almost loniversally the generations in these two lines of 
lineal succession have been of eminent respectability and many mem- 
bers of these families have had prominent standing in society. 

As stated elsewhere the issues of the marriage of Richard Browder, 
one of the joint heads of the generations contained in this record, so 
far as known were David, Littleberry, William and Mary. There may 
have been others, but if so they are not known. 

Littleberry married and raised a family of four children, viz.: 
David, Mary, Thomas and V/innefred, whose descendants now reside in 
Kentucky, Tennessee, Illinois, Kansas, and Iowa so far as is known. 

Mary, daughter of Richard Browder, married Mr. Pentecost and 
resided and died in Virginia without issue. 

Nothing is known of the history or descendants of William, son 
of Richard Brov/der. It is probable that some of the Browders re- 
siding in Ohio, Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina and western Ken- 
tucky may have descended from him, but there are no available means 
for establishing this as a fact. 



David Browder, son of Richard Browder, married Mary Pegram, 
who died shortly after marriage, leaving one child- -a daughter- - 
who married Anthony Sydnor and this is the fact which connects 
the Browder and Sydnor families, 

David Browder's second marriage was with Mary Cousins, as here- 
tofore stated, and there are no authentic records as to the date of 
birth, marriage or death of either. It is certain that both were 
bom, resided and died in Virginia. So far as is known, six children 
were the issues of this marriage, viz.: Richard, William Cousins, 
Robert, Ann W., Almeda and Jane, These descendants all married in 
Virginia except Robert and Jane, all emigrated to Kentucky at an 
eady day, settling first in Green County and finally in Logan County, 
where their descendants were reared and now mostly reside.

information used in making it was derived from authentic sources, 
while the smaller part was obtained necessarily from traditional 
knowledge and the facts secured from the most reliable informants 
were adopted and used, V/hile it may not be fully correct, it is as 
nearly so as it can be made in the absence of much necessary and 
authentic record. The leading and essential facts I am satisfied are 
correct, while some of the minor details may not be fully so.

THE SYDNOR BRMCH OF THE FMILY 

The above record, as traced by my cousin, Thomas E. Browder, 
embraces the descendants of our grandfather and mother, David and Mary 
Cousins Browder, only as it incidentally refers to his first marriage 
with Mary Pegram and the marriage of their only child and daughter, 
Mary Browder, to Anthony Sydnor of Virginia. The following is the 
best outline record that can be gotten in time for this publication, 
but in the larger work that will embrace a record of the entire Browder 
family in this co^lntry, information to be embocied in which I am 
collecting as rapidly as possible, I shall endeavor to get a fuller 
and more complete record as to dates, etc., of the descendants of 
Anthony and Mary Browder Sydnor. There were born to them seven children - 
five boys and two girls, as follows: Joseph, David B., Edward, Martha, 
Sarah Ann, Thomas A., and Baker Sydnor. 

Joseph Sydnor, son of Anthony and Mary Browder Sydnor, was bom 
in Virginia in 1801, and moved with the Browder and Sydnor families 
to Kentucky in 1820, and settled with them in Green County, where he 
married and died in early life. The names of his wife and children 
are not known, and they are also dead, 

David B. Sydnor, son of Anthony and Mary Browder Sydnor, was 
bom in Virginia, February 18, 1803, married Catherine Milliard, 
February 14, 1828, by whom he had eight children, as follows: 
Washington A. W., David E., Thomas B., Robert A., Mary E., Sarah F., 
Elizabeth R., and Sophia A. Sydnor. 

W. A. W. Sydnor, son of David B, and Catherine Sydnor, was bom 
October 17, 1831, was married to Mariah Ellen Spillman, March 22, 1855, 
by whom he had one child, a daughter, Katie Belle Sydnor. 



31 

Katie Belle Sydnor, daughter of ¥. A. ¥. and Ellen Sydnor, was 
born June 1 , 1860, married James H. Winfree of Hopkinsville, Ky,, 
December 20, 1883. There were bom to them two children-- a daughter 
and a son. Beulah S. Winfree was born July 27, 1888, and Wm. Henry 
Winfree, was born October 26, 1896. 

David E. Sydnor, son of David B. and Catherine Sydnor, was born 
November 2, 1832, was married to Piety Greenfield of Todd Co., Ky., 
February 4, 1857, The issues from this marriage were three sons, 
Caleb, V/illiam and James Sydnor, Caleb lived to be a grown man, but 
never married, ^e went to Texas in quest of health and died there 
about fifteen years ago, William died when about twelve years of age, 

James Sydnor, son of David and Piety Sydnor, (date of birth un- 
known) married Miss Mollie Sun of Texas, and now resides in that state. 
Date of marriage and names of children iinknown. 

David E. Sydnor married the second time to Frances Cornelius, 
November 26, 1863, By this union there were bom to them four children, 
three sons and a daughter- -E, Wallace, Leslie A., Robert A., and 
Laura Sydnor, 

E. Wallace Sydnor, son of David E, and Frances Sydnor, was bom 
September 12, 1865, married Sallie B, Browder, daughter of Richard C, 
and Amanda Browder, November 21, 1894, and one child is the issue 
from this marriage--a son--W. B, Sydnor, I believe, 

Leslie A. Sydnor, son of David E, and Frances Sydnor, was born 
January, 1867, and is unmarried, 

Robert A. Sydnor, son of David E, and Frances Sydnor, was bom 
October 29, 1868, was married December 22, 1891, to Miss Mary Collins. 



32 

The issue from this marriage was one child, a girl, whose name is 
Fannie, I think, the father dying soon after its birth, December 12, 
1893. 

Laura Sydnor, daughter of David E. and Frances Sydnor, was born 
July 26, 1870. She married Robert Mason of Mori^anf ield, Ky., May 6, 
1891, and now resides in that town. They had three di ildren- -Arthur, 
Allen Waller, and Ruth E. Mason. Arthur Mason was bom April 14, 1892,

Bettie I'hurston, daughter of Edward and Mary Hughes, whose names 
appear in the Browder record. David E. Sydnor died some 15 ^e ars 
since, but his i/ife is still living and resides with her mother in 
Bowling Green, Ky. 

Thomas B. Sydnor, son of David B. and Catherine Sydnor, was bom 
March 7, 1835, was married to Mary M. Browder, daughter of Robert 
and Sarah L. Browder, February 11, 1859. There were born to them 
two children, Robert Harman, bom June 1, 1870, and unmarried; and 
Katie G, Sydnor, born May 20, 1882, and unmarried, 

Robert A. Sydnor, son of David B. and Catherine Sydnor, was

Mary E. Sydnor, daughter of David B, and Catherine Sydnor, was 
born April 20, 1839, and was married to William R. Browder, November 
24, 1864. There was only one child, Katie H. Browder, born September 
13, 1865, and died July 10, 1866. 



33 

Sarah F. Sydnor, daughter of David B, and Catherine Sydnor, was 
bom May 15, 1842, mtrried James F. Johnson of Clarksville, Tenn., 
May 25, 1869. She lived only a short while after marrying, leaving 
no children. 

Elizabeth R. Sydnor, daughter of David B. and Catherine Sycinor, 
was bom March 13, 1844, and died in childhood. 

Sophia A. Sydnor, daughter of David B. and Catherine Sydnor, was 
born June 6, 1846, and also died in childhood. 

Edward Sydnor, son of Anthony and Mary Brovrder Sydnor, was bom 
in 1805, date of marriage and to \i\om married unknovm to me. Moved 
West V7ith his family and nothing is known of them. 

Martha Sydnor, daughter of Anthony and Mary Browder Sydnor, was 
born in 1807; married (date unknown) Paschal V/illiams of Green Co., 
Ky. Their children were Archie, Thomas A., David, V/oodson, Joseph, 
and Bettie. We think the children were all married, but have no 
record of their families. 

Sarah Ann Sydnor, daughter of Anthony and Mary Brovrder Sydnor, 
was born in 1809. She married John Bailey of Green Co., Ky., and 
the issues of their marriage were four sons--John, Thomas, Robert, 
and William. I know nothing of the dates of their birth or marriage; 
in fact I know not whether any have families, except Thomas J,, who 
married Mollie Hutchings, daughter of Dr. George H. Kutchings, and 
the record of whose family has already been given in the preceding 
record of the Browder family. 

Thomas A. Sydnor, son of Anthony and Mary Browder Sydnor, was 
born in 1811; married to Sarah Walthal of Green County, I suppose 
(date xmknown), and there was bom to them the following children: 



34 

William, Almeda, Anthony and Browder Sydnor. Nothing is known of them 
by me further than that they reside in Hart County, Ky., or did x^rhen 
I last heard from them. 

Baker Sydnor, son of /u:\thony and Mary Brov/der Sydnor, was bom 
in Virginia (as were the rest of his brothers and sisters) in 1813, 
He never married and died in Russellville, Ky,, in 1833 with cholera. 

This completes the record of David Browder 's descendants by his 
two wives Mary Pegram and Mary Cousins Browder, That of grand- 
father's brothers. Rev, Littleberry and William Browder, the only two 
that are positively known to me, will be embraced in the general his- 
tory which I am endeavoring to compile of the entire family in this 
country. Nothing was known to us prior to the getting up of this 
record, of Uncle William's descendants, but I have information which 
seems conclusive that the North Carolina Brov/ders, who finally emigrated 
to Tennessee and settled in Monroe Co,, near Sweetwater, are some of 
his descendants. They are an intelligent and prosperous people and 
rank high in the conmiunities in which tliey reside, and like the Browders 
everywhere I have found them, are the patrons of education and religion, 
of all that is noblest and best in life, 

I feel that we owe a debt of gratitude to Cousin Thomas E, 
Browder, who got up this family record, and Cousin Jack P. Moore, 
who incited him to the good work. Their efforts have aroused in me 
an earnest desire to have a full and as complete history of the entire 
family as can be obtained, and to that end 1 have already collected 
a great deal of very interesting information, and if I can get the 
cooperation of all the members of our great and honored family, I 
shall succeed in accomplishing the desired result, God being willing. 



35 

This general record will be a surprise to all, as the family is much 
more numerous than any have suspected. I'here are several different 
branches I have found, one or more of which is larger than our own; 
and if this record could be interspersed (as it should be) with bio- 
graphical sketches of the prominent men and women of the family, with 
half tone likenesses of same, it would make a very interesting his- 
tory not only to those of us who are now living, but to our posterity. 

My plan is to get some member of each branch to get up personal 
sketches and furnish pictures of the prominent members of their 
particular families, which they wish inserted. This I think v/ould 
stimulate the interest of all and make a more satisfactory history. 
I would like to have an expression from those who read this and are 
interested in the matter as to their willingness to cooperate with 
me and share the expense of such an undertaking with me. I have not 
undertaken this work with the purpose of making money out of it, 
but have been actuated simply and solely by the love I bear my family 
and the pride I have in its noble history and the desire to transmit 
it to our children after us. I shall never cease to thank God for our 
noble parentage. They have left us an imperishable heritage. The 
heritage of a noble and good name that I prize more highly than all 
the honors or riches that the world can bestow, and which I had 
rather bequeath to my children than the wealth of the world. 

My highest ambition in life is to be like my noble and saintly 
father and mother, and have the love and respect and admiration of 
all who know me in the same degree which they had from all who knew 
them, and if I can only succeed in impressing myself upon my children

and upon the generation in which I live as they impressed themselves 
upon their children and upon the generation in which they lived, I 
shall always praise God that he permitted me to live in this world, 

DAVID P. BRO\VDER 



Since getting out the little pamphlet- -Genealogy of David 
Brov^der and Descendants--! have found some earlier history, obtained 
by my nephew. Rev. R. W. Browder, from his father. Rev. George R, 
Browder, who got it from our father, Robert Brov/der. It is as 
follows: 

One ----- Browder, an Englishman, married a Welsh woman, and 
emigrated to America early in the 18th century, and settled in 
Virginia, x^rhere he lived and died. His name has not been retained 
in the family. The children of these progenetors of the Browder 
family were Richard, Joseph, Arthur, George and Nancy, as far as 
known. Nancy married a Mr, Poole, 

Richard Browder married a Miss Mary Thompson, as recorded in the 
above-mentioned history, and the following children were born to 
them, Susannah, John, Charles, William, David, Littleberry, Thompson, 
Mary, Martha, Nancy, and Wilmuth, Susannah married first John Thacker 
to whom were bom three children, Mary, Nancy, and David Thacker. 
She married the second time George Timmons and the issues of this 
marriage were Elizabeth, Susan, and Martha Timmons, John Brov/der, son 
of Richard and Mary Thompson Brov/der was killed when a boy by the 
accidental discharge of a gun, Charles Browder, son of Richard and 
Mary Thompson Browder, volunteered as a soldier in the Revolutionary 
War and died of disease in camp about the year 1773, 

David Browder' s history has already been given in record just 
completed. Thompson Browder, son of Richard and Mary Thompson 
Browder, married (to whom unknown) and his children were Benjamin, 
Elizabeth, Johnathan, and others. Martha Browder, daughter of Richard 



/ 



and Mary Thompson Browder, married a cousin Isham Browder. Their 
children were Mary and Richard so far as is known, 

V/illiam C. Browder, son of Kichard and Mary Thompson Browder, 
as related in above record, has left no record that can positively 
be traced. Littleberry's record is embraced in the above work 
just published. 

Nancy Browder, daughter of Richard and Mary Thompson Browder, 
married Thomas Williams and bore him six children, Hartwell W,, 
Edward, Lewis, Mary T., Nathan, and Jones Williams, This completes 
the full history so far as known by my father, Robert Browder, son 
of David and Mary Cousins Browder.
