What a surprise! W.H.W. Argenbright is my gggrandfather. William H. Browning is my grandfather. Amanda Josephine Browning is his sister. They were orphaned at a very young age when both their parents (George Boyd Browning and Martha Ann Argenbright Browning) died within a month of each other. Martha Ann was the daughter of William Henry White Argenbright. "Grandpa Argenbright" and his other nearly adult children raised my grandfather and Aunt Josephine after the death of their parents.

I'm searching for more information on W.H.W. Argenbright's wife, Josephine Roiter. I just inherited what appears to be their wedding photograph, but I don't know what year they were married, nor do I know when Josephine died. She just disappears from any records I have (which are scant).

Another note...my grandfather, "Willie" Browning died suddenly when he was a young man of 28 years, leaving my father without his father at the age of 5. Aunt Josephine lived next door to us when I was growing up. She died at the age of 74. She was a treasure to know!
