And then this
If you need a picture of me and my Mom and Dad together.... through a source that isn't the official biographer of my Dads life ( Paul Schatzkin Defying Gravity: The Parallel Universe of T. Townsend Brown) Go even further back to a source that HE found and used in his book. (A situation where he was given the clipping out of my archives so maybe it wasn't all that hard for him to do.... but those intrepid researchers out there who REALLY want to be thorough can look it up I am sure through the Internet).
There is a photo taken by a staff member of the local Zanesville paper in1953. You will have to look the name of the paper up... it was not mentioned in the clipping that I had in my files....
The text though says".... the parts that are relevant to us here...
: The Townsend Browns have returned to Zanesville to make their home bringing back a name once prominent in Zanesville affairs... Townsend Brown, pictured above with his wife ( the former Josephine Beale) and seven year old daughter, Linda Ann...... etc etc etc.
This newspaper clipping was published on February 8th, 1953.
Just a note of personal interest.... if you look at the fireplace hearth.... right behind my Dads heel in the picture you will see a model brass cannon that travelled with us my entire life. Moms green teapot and that brass canon were ALWAYS with us. I believe it was awarded to my Grandfather LKBrown for services rendered to the US Navy... and it meant alot to Dad.
This is an aside to the Grandsons of Thomas Townsend Brown..... I am assuming that you have inherited that cannon because I know that it went to my brother Joseph when Dad died.... that and his special ring... also from his Grandfather on the Townsend Side.... I am mentioning this because someday someone may challenge even YOU Jeff and Jason.... to PROVE yourself. Just point to the cannon!!!! Linda
