A note from Catherine Balusek Ryan gives the following information: I have a private website on that holds information on the Lewis Brownson family history. It includes the families of his children--Almon Bates Brownson, Daisy Brownson Pinchback, Minnie Brownson Townsend, John Francis (Fannie) Brownson Griffitts, Melissa Jane (Mallassie) Brownson Weisler, and Flossie Brownson Loughridge. Almon Brownson's family also included the Hinze family from Sheridan, the Balusek families from Rock Island/Sandies/Provident City, the Chambless family from the late 1800's, and the Garrett family. The site contains over 1000 photos. Anyone who would like access to the site can contact me for a password and username. It is free.
