NOTE: Eliza BROWN remarried in 1865 to a Joseph BLACK; they moved with John Henry and William Abner to Cherokee County, KS, where she applied for this pension. Mr. BLACK died several years later, and I do not know that date. Michael and Thomas BROWN remained in IL with their mother's family (UFFENDILL). Eliza BLACK moved to OK later in her life, and died in Osage, OK, 25 OCT 1925. Her parents were: QUALLS, John, born in VA; RICHARDSON, Eliza, born in VA. They were married in NC, where Eliza was born, as well as several other children. The family moved to TN, then to IL; I am not sure of the dates for these moves.
