Homer and Mary 1956
           Homer Brown was the oldest son of Oscar Brown and Rosanna Butler Brown. He was one of eight children born to this couple.  These children were Garland, Ethel, Oscar B., L.Z., William, Bell, and James L.  Mary Elizabeth Mahone was the daughter of  Richard Mahone and Lula Jones Mahone.  She, too,  was one of eight children born to the couple.  These children were Cleve, Andrew, Ernest, Richard, Jeffrey, Asie, and Audrey.  Homer and Mary grew up a short distance from each other, and eventually Homer asked Mary to marry him. Thus, the union of these two brought two great families together.  This year we take time to celebrate this union of families---recognizing that the legacy  continues.
