Erma Holtzclaw Brown

This is Erma Holtzclaw Brown (1816-1901). She is Anna’s Great-g-g-grandmother, or Rocky and Adam’s. Great-g-g-g grandmother. She married Joe Brown who was born in South Carolina. I have that she was born in Forsyth County, Georgia – which if she was, she was born in that area before Forsyth County had been established, which is not impossible. Up until 1832 there was a treaty with the Indians that whites would not settle north of the Chattahoochee River, but many whites did anyway. Treaties were meant to be broken.

Imagine all the history she saw: From a pre-removal of the Indians, to electricity, telephones, photographs and many other inventions. Who needed television?
