May 17, 1883 (The Commonwealth, a newspaper of Scotland Neck, NC, 2d page)
[From Here and There Section]
Warrenton Journal: Mr. Falcon Brown, Sr., a highly respected citizen of Warren county, died suddenly of Apoplexy at his residence near Vaughan’s, N.C., on Wednesday morning, May 8th.
[On familysearch.org, I did find a record for a Faulken Brown (mentioned as father of Bobbie L. Clopton, death record, her mother listed as Kate Shearin), born in Warren County, NC. I then found, on ancestry.com, an 1880 Warren County census record for Jacob F. Brown (born about 1830), who had a servant-housekeeper Cate Shearin and child Bobbie [Shearin].
However, on ancestry.com there are also several family trees listing a Jacob Faulcon Brown who was married to Lucinda Fain (who did not die until 1907). They list his death date as May 8, 1883 (but no attached record).
So, that is where the mystery stands.]
