My ggrandparents, Grace Ida and Alonzo Potter Brown share April 17th birthdate
My mother’s, maternal grandmother was Grace Ida Stulting. Grace was born on 17 April 1869 in Gonzales, Gonzales County, Texas to Christopher Columbus Stulting and Elizabeth Virginia Tyler. [Note: the death certificate shows birth year as 1870 and also on the headstone, but the 1870 Gonzales County Census shows a 2-month-old Gracie] Just a year later, Alonzo Potter Brown was born on 17 April 1870 in Kerr County, Texas to Joshua D. Brown and Sarah Jane Goss. On the 18 November 1891, Grace and Potter were married in Gonzales, Gonzales County, Texas, and they lived in Kerrville, Kerr County, Texas, for the rest of their lives. They had three children, Roy N. Brown, born 8 Aug 1895, Gussie May Brown, born 3 September 1897 (my grandmother) and Jane Helena Brown born 17 Aug 1901. Grace lived until 20 April 1958 and Potter lived until 26 February 1964. Potter and Grace shared a long and happy life together.
