BRIEF LIFE HISTORY OF JAMES GREEN BROWNING James Green Browning was born on 22 May 1808 at Gallatin, Sumner County, Tennessee. He was the son of Edmund Browning and Sarah Allen. As far as I know he spent his early years in Sumner County. He was a Blacksmith, farmer, and Cooper by trade. He met Mary Ann Neel (Neal) who was also known as Polly Ann, and they were married on 20 November 1827 in Sumner County, Tennessee. James and Mary Ann lived in Dry Fork, Sumner County, Tennessee, where two children were born to them: Clifton Smith, born 15 September 1828 and Sarah Ann, born 10 October 1830.
