Cassville Republican, Jan. 16, 1896 - Amongst Our Old People: Mrs. Mary Browning in the Sunny Southwest over a Half Century: Monett's Oldest Citizen - is Mrs. Mary Browning, who was born in Pendleton Co., NC, Feb. 12, 1805, beginning almost 90 years ago. At present, she is living with her oldest granddaughter, Mrs. W. H. Dennis, with whom she has made her home since August 1894, prior to which time she lived with her daughter-in-law, Mrs. W. R. Clement. Mrs. Browning's maiden name was Butterworth, and is of English parentage. At the age of 16, she was married to Benjamin Clement, by which marriage there was 6 sons, all of whom are now dead. Mr. Clement dying March 7, 1838, she married September 20, 1840, John Browning, and the same year came to Southwest Missouri, reaching Barry County, four years later, making her one of our oldest settlers. For 53 years, Grandma Browning has been a member of the Baptist Church and during more than a half century's residence in this county has been noted for her kindheartedness and generosity. She has no blood relation living nearer than grand-children, of which there are five and eight great-grandchildren. As a widow of a veteran of the War of 1812, she draws a small pension, sufficient to meet her present limited needs. Mrs. Browning enjoys fair health for one of her age and is able to be about with the help of a cane.
