Wednesday's Wonderful Collection - Browne family papers, MS.000403

Lida Barret Ross was born on December 14, 1888 in Arkadelphia. She married Horace William Browne and they had two children, Esther and Josephine Sue. Lida began her family research of the Ligon family of Virginia in the 1940s. Much of her research includes the Person, Ross, Taylor, and Webb families of the 1700s and 1800s. Her two daughters also did extensive genealogical research, using their family lineage to join numerous hereditary societies. Lida died on February 9, 1971, in Little Rock.

Josephine was born about 1910 and died on January 23, 2000. She never married, and worked thirty years as Superintendent of Operations for Arkla. She served in multiple offices for the societies and clubs of which she was a member, including two terms as regent for the Little Rock chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, board member of the Little Rock Departmental Club, and vice-president of the Ligon Family and Kinsmen Association. She was a life member of the Daughters of the American Revolution Museum in Washington, District of Columbia, and helped raise money for the publication of a book about Arkansas Post. She also established a scholarship for student nurses at the Baptist Medical System Foundation in Little Rock.

Esther was born August 7, 1912. She married Samuel Edwin Tyson on March 10, 1935, and they were divorced in 1938. They had one child, Terry, who died on July 23, 1977. Esther lived and worked in Little Rock the majority of her life, but spent several years in Memphis working as a secretary for John Deere Company. Following the death of her daughter Esther moved back to Little Rock and remained there with her sister until her death on December 9, 1991.

This collection contains material related to Lida Ross Browne, Josephine Sue Browne, and Esther Browne Tyson, including correspondence, hereditary societies, clubs and associations, family histories, memorabilia, photographs, and scrapbooks.
